Ruby Tuesday - Celebratory Cat


A birthday party for a special family member was held. Our kitty in 2002, the incomparable Sir Humphrey was being celebrated on his fourth birthday. The party planners were ecstatic. However the celebrant was, shall we say, not so enthused. Perhaps a truly satisfying nap was interrupted by the festivities.

So for Ruby Tuesday, the royalty received a mylar balloon with plenty of congratulatory rubies. The futon bolster complies with the Tuesday hue also. Finally, even though you cannot see it, he is wearing a smart ruby tartan collar, too.

He seems underwhelmed. The rest of us were quite pleased to sing Happy Birthday to a reluctant kitty. In his mind, however, one should never, ever wake up a sleeping kitty, birthday or no...

Ralph!
If there were an award( and maybe there is)for a wonderfully passionate and sincere commenter- YOU would win it firstly!
You have such eloquence with your sincere thoughts to me, and so many others.
Thanks.

Happy B-day to your Sir and also my thoughts for Rigby's passing~
Your felines have the best lives! So does my Elsie Kitten!
Sincerely
KK

So, kittens it is this week for RT! I do like how they can tell you in no uncertain terms how they feel at any given time! Pretty shot for a male cat to be. Like one of the poets said, it is a pity they have to grow up.

Let's start an "office pool" - how long before kitty puts a claw through the balloon? ;)

He does look decidedly underwhelmed. Nevermind, that's a great excuse for his humans to eat up all his cake ;).

Happy Tuesday Ralph.

I never saw a more displeased kitten.
Try fish cakes next time.
Never met a cat who did not go bananas over fish!

I would say, "That's the cat's meow" but I won't. Well, I guess I just did. Have a great RT.

Very cute Kitty, in amongst the red.
Pity he wasn't in a celebrating mood, he could have had a lot of fun.

My RT is on Silently Mine. :))

Can't say Kitty is thrilled with the celebration LOL! It is quite a pretty one, though :0)

Lindz said...

LOL~ I hope Kitty was pleased with his birthday balloon and made no attempts at bursting it! :P
Happy Ruby Tuesday Ralph!

Roger said...

Ralph I can't figure out what that cat is thinking lol! I am sure kitty has a great time!

Carolyn Ford said...

They just don't get it do they? Sometimes we just have to celebrate even when the guest of honor poops out! Beautiful cat and cute post!

Carletta said...

He picked that futon thinking he'd blend right in and you wouldn't notice him! Now he has to wake up and celebrate. :)
One cute kitty!

Maria said...

Jientje said...

He does look a bit annoyed, that's true, but what a beautiful cat he is!

Sweet Sir H. and I'm sure he is a beautiful adult cat and has endured several more birthday parties. Always fun to visit your blog--enjoy your week!
p.s. word verification: glater
Is that short for later, alligator or am I just very lame? LOL

Stephanie V said...

That's a wonderful photo. Really captures the essence of a cat. So unimpressed with human activities if they don't involve a tuna tin and a can opener.

lazyclick said...

Jew Wishes said...

Aww, Ralph, what a sweet shot, so precious, so expressive and lovely.

ilanadavita said...

I love the expression on the cat's face. Sorry for the late comment.

Matty said...

Now the scary thing would be if the cat actually knew what was going on. Not to worry, our two cats are not too happy with our celebrations either.
