A Day of Thanksgiving ...

Good morning, friends.  It's me, Olivia.  And I've been thinking ...

Earlier this week, I posted about how Mom forgot my birthday .  And to be honest, I still wish she hadn't forgotten.  On the other hand, though, I also know that it's not presents that make a birthday or other holiday special.  The most important thing, not just on birthdays or holidays, but every day, is that we have people to love, who love us, and I have that.  And even though Tanner and Finn do bug me sometimes (like about 23 out of every 24 hours), I wouldn't really want them to move away.  Well ... sometimes.   

Anyway, the point is, now that my righteous indignation over my forgotten birthday has faded, I realize that I'm a very lucky girl indeed.  So instead of thinking about ways to get even with Mom for forgetting it, I'm going to GIVE  a present to one of my new friends! 

All you have to do is leave me a comment telling me what your favorite birthday or Gotcha Day present has been, and I'll put you in the hat (really I'll use one of those randomizer things) to receive a very special present from yours truly.  The present will depend upon who actually wins, since I wouldn't want to send cat treats to one of my woofie friends, or vice versa.   

Well, have a restful Sunday, everyone  ...

Me, with my favorite brother ...

Happy, happy birthday wishes Tucker. I'm sure to your Hu-Mom, everyday is a celebration since she has you! What a nice idea you are doing - to share your special day by treating others! You are very special indeed!

Favorite birthday gift for all five and the cat-who-adopted-us...is being able to celebrate their birthdays together as a family (and having vanilla ice cream cake doesn't hurt either!)

Happy Sunday!

Hope you day was grand, even if it was a day or two late!

My favorite birthday pressie is home made treats!

Drools and licks,

Olivia, that is such a great way to celebrate your birthday. We know that you are very much loved by all of your family. Our favorite pressie is definitely homebaked treats. But please don't include us in the random pick, we have won a lot lately and want to give some other furries a better chance. Happy Birthday again.

Happy belated birthday. Your favorite brother is darling. He would be one of my favorites too. We had a Siamese cat years ago that thought he was a black poodle because his sister was a poodle.

My favorite present was the Siamese cat I mentioned above. My only children were four-legged friends. They're the best!

Thanks for visiting my kitchen and following along. I look forward to getting to know you better.

Olivia, I'm glad you're getting over your forgotten birthday.

Our kitties' favorite present is a balled-up piece of paper! Fun, fun, fun.

Aw what a sweet post Olivia. You are so right. I guess my favorite gift would have been the day I got my human mom and dad. All my other gifts like chewies and tuggies are great but not as great as my mom and dad

My favorite Gotcha Day present was coming home to my forever family and pack mates. {sigh} My favorite birfday gift was my brudder Max (DaOdderWeenie) (I Guess)

Olivia, I am a little worried that you might be turning all soft and stuff--Spitty likes his ladycats a little edgy. But I know you have a little bit of evil lurking in there someplace.

Hmmm. My best present EVER was my little pink plastic brush (I think it mighta been a birfday present but I forget). It makes me purr and purr and purr and purr. The only time I will actually sit on my Human's lap is when she's using that thing on me. I just can't help myself.

Happy Birthday, my friend! I hope is was a fun day!

Happy Birthday! Hmm...my favorite birthday present would have to be a squeaky shoe that someone bought me. I squeaked it until it wouldn't squeak anymore.

Mr. Pip said...

Happy Birthday! My favorite gift was the frozen yogurt I had last year on my Gotcha Day!

Your pal, Pip
