Cat In The Hat!

Can any of y'all imagine what it is like to be married to a celebrity? Oh the trials and tribulations...the constant photo ops...the women throwing themselves at my husband...problems with packing the hats...not to mention trying to fit that big, I mean swollen, I mean fat, I mean sweet head into those hats! It is a full time job keeping up with this man!!!(Photo courtesy of David, Snakelover61)

When we left to go the BIG SHOW, it was the 24th of September. I almost forgot that it was Cat Daddy's birthday! Poor baby! He spent the day loading the truck and driving for 4 hours to get us there. What a way to spend a birthday or so one would think. Nothing could have made him happier. He was heading to the happiest place on Earth...at least in his world...and his adoring bevy of beauties! (Photo courtesy of David, Snakelover61)

I was feeling guilty for not remembering...that is until we got there. The ladies more than made up for my lapse of memory! The girls also reminded me he's not a property to be left alone or neglected for very long! They are more than willing to take up the slack...if I were to let them!

Cat Daddy possesses this rare, savage, animal magnetism that just draws the ladies to him like catnip. My job is to simply make sure order is maintained and that no catfights ensue!

I tell y'all...down at Zapp it can be a full time job just managing crowd control! I am so humbled that he allows me to travel with him and carry his coozies. To be able to breathe the same air as him is an honor!

Occasionally when he is feeling magnanimous, he will allow another tom cat into the picture...but only occasionally! Like so many other Alpha Males, he can be quite territorial!

But ladies, one caveat before you think you stand a fighting chance of stealing him...I am the original KITTEN! I AM the Mama Cat of all mama cats and I have the sharp nails to prove it!

In fact, there are 5 of us in the original litter! Take a peek at a couple of the others!
This blond, blue eyed beauty wraps him like no other...even missing a tooth! Even Moi can't hold a candle for her to go by!
And last, but certainly not least...not in his heart anyway...the latest kitten in his cat box!

Happy (belated) Birthday Cat Daddy!!!

(A special thank you to Theresa and David for sharing their photos of the Great One with me!)

That CD is a one and ONLY original and while there may be some would love to copy him, it ain't happening... Before long he'll need body guards! Love you both, T

I am so DAMN JEALOUS! I miss the blog party and then I see all these photos of my man messin' around on me! Cat Daddy, what were you thinking? To top it all off, I find out I missed out on my Koozie! Anyway, I am sending a big Happy Birthday SMOOCH your way! By the way, do you know how lucky you are to have so many gorgeous women in your family? Yes, Debbie, Jen, Graycie and Bella are absolutely beautiful!

I miss you Cat Daddy and Debbie!

You are so freakin' hilarious!!! Even though I've never met him in person, I'm tingling at the thought of when I actually DO get to meet him!

I'll be honest here Deb, in front of God and everyone...
I don't think I'll be able to control myself.
Don't say I didn't warn you...I have all of these witnesses!!!!

This is for CD...pretend I'm Marilyn Monroe...

Happy Birthday to you...
(rubbing my hips)
Happy Birthday to yooou...
(winking my eye)
Happy Birthday Mister King of Caaats...
(fixin' my boobies)
Happy Birthday to yooou...

Geez, it was JUST a birthday wish!

Tootsie said...

I'd sing but I don't want to ruin the party...Happy birthday Cat Daddy!!!

Anne~fiona and twig said...

Gaaah, I am such a loser! First I miss Mindy's b-day, now Cat Daddy's! I wouldn't be the least bit surprised if CD issued a recall on my coozie.
But I digress.
Would ya just look at that hunka burnin' love decked out in the gold jacket? What a pimp Cat Daddy is! And you are quite right...there may be many kittens, but you, M'lady, rule the cat box.

Big heaps of love to you both!
Anne

Sweet Repose said...

I am humbled...to have the honor of his presence daily, must be such a drain, you have my greatest respect Mrs. Trash...don't know how you cope, you're a good woman!!!

Happy belated birthday CD...too bad we didn't get to talk on the cell, would've loved to see the look on TOT's daughter's face as you two conversed...WTF...

Have a great one Mr. T...

nut...a CD kitten(and proud of it)

Laura said...

This all sounds like too much fun to me- and when I think that I missed meeting the real, authentic Cat Daddy-
Next time-

Can I sit my husband next to yours? He'll bring an ice chest.

Laura

Anne~fiona and twig said...

I have the most fab news ever! Something that's gonna put me in close proximity to that hunky CD of yours come Spring, watch out Mama! Come to my blog, I'm so excited I might just wet myself!
