The Rest of the Party

This is my Gotcha Day gift. It's a warming mat.  There is stuff inside that reflects heat back to keep me warm this winter.
This was in the package, too.  I don't know what it is, but the white ball on the end is fun to play with.
Here I am trying out my new warming mat.  I love it.  It has become my favorite nap spot.

Karen Jo:  First, many apologies.  I had intended to keep on posting about Herman's Gotcha Day Party after I woke up again after the breakfast post.  For some reason I have been incredibly tired recently and I just didn't have the energy to post again until now.  All I can think of is that my still-working-but-woefully-inadequate thyroid gland is doing its job very irregularly.  That said, here is how the rest of the party went.

I finally had to go get Mom up because all the kitties were getting hungry again and Roxy wanted some broccoli.  We had ham, turkey, chicken, a whole salmon and the biggest shrimp ring you ever saw, plus some broccoli.  After making sure that all the food was out, Mom got out the wand toys for a while.  Some of the kitties wanted pets and scritches before their afternoon naps, so Mom was kept pretty busy.  The sun came out and melted most of the snow, but it stayed in the shady spots.  Then the wind came up and it got pretty nasty outside, so we all played inside. There were toys scattered all over the house.

When it got dark, Mom brought out tuna cake and nip ice cream.  Then she mixed up huge batches of niptinis and meowgraritas. Some kitties played with my flashy balls in the dark hallway.  We put the music on and danced and played until we dropped.  One by one the kitties and woofies teleported home after their post-party naps.  Thank you all for coming.  It was a great party.
