Party On!


Welome to my first open house Halloween party. It is so nice of you to stop by, please stay as long as you like. Let me offer you a little direction as to what is happening.

Hors d' oeuvres are located in the dining room, to the left of the foyer.


A variety awaits you, please help yourself. Don't be shy, dig right in, have as much as you like.

Go back for seconds, there's plenty.


Note: The following snack is for adults only as cat nip was used as one of the cooking spices. Any cat having more than two of these must have a designated driver to get you home. I am relying on the honor system.



All drinks are non-alcoholic and you will find them in the kitchen on the counter.

If you see that I'm running out of glasses please let me know so I can put more out.


There are four different games for you to play. Participate in as many as you want. There are no winners or losers just some good fun.

Game 1 - Find the hidden mouse.

Game 2 - Count the number of mice in the jar


Game 3 - Bat a ball of yarn to see who can hit it the farthest


Game 4 - Who can jump the highest


Those of you in costume may have a parade if you would like to do so.



Out on the patio you will be entertained with music for dancing. Also, in the back yard you will want be sure to visit the fine art sculptures, made by a local artist for your viewing pleasure.


The first guest to arrive, the last guest to leave, and best costume will be featured in a post by me. A re-cap of the party will be posted on my blog this coming week along with pictures of the winners and of those who attended the party. If you do not want your picture to appear in my post please let me know otherwise your photo will appear.

When you leave be sure to pick up your party favor bag to take home with you. Keep an eye on it as I cannot be responsible if it should get lost.

Oh, I almost forget the litter box is in the laundry room.

It is so nice to meet all of you. Make yourselves at home, kick back and have a good time. If you need anything feel free to ask me and I will do my best to meet your request.

Hope you all have a GREAT TIME!

Hey, Sassy! Am I the first to arrive???? I have been reminding SS for the last 48 hours. I am brushed and have my party bow on. All ready to go! What wonderful food you have for us. I will try the yarn ball game first - my favourite. I can't jump too high these days. SS says I can stay while she works at the uni and will come back for me later in the day.

Momo-Congratulations you are the first to arrive. It is so nice to meet you. You look beautiful with your party bow on. Let's party until more arrive.

MoMo said...

PS I can't believe those kitties from Italy have yet arrived. What's holding them up? Really looking forward to meeting everyone here and have fun!
MoMo

MoMo said...

Just to warn you, my 'twin' Momo-dog may be dropping in to say 'hi'. She will be coming as a Pink Witch. You can't really miss her as she comes through the door as this is one cute, gregarious, glamorous woofie.

topcatrules said...

Woo hoo! Party on dude! We three are HERE! It's Pyewacket, Trixie and Tigger. We are dressed up on our blog and ready for anything!

The Meezers said...

woo hooO!! we is here too!!!! party!!!

Momo :) said...

Hello and nice to meet you, Sassy! I am Momo..yes Momo but dog, Momo-cat's friend. :) Hope you don't mind to find a dog here. I was actually at my friends' pawty but sneaked out to get here. :)

Momo xoxo

MoMo said...

Not sure if you have noticed but all Aussiecats - the Topcatrules trio and I turn up extra EARLY for parties. So nice of you to open doors at unsociable hours so that we can attend!

Having great fun. Momo-dog and I decide to party on a bit longer since we haven't been together at the same party ever. Well, there is a Momo-owl, too. But she is not a blogger and therefore has no access to this teleport medium.

MoMo

topcatrules said...

This is Trixie. I just want to say that Pyewacket took MY party favor bag as well as hers, but it's OK, 'cause Tigger said I could have hers to keep. And Pyewacket heaved behind a chair. Sorry!
Honestly, you can't take her anywhere! She's only 8 months old. Shouldn't she be home in bed?

Orable & Charlie said...

I made it to another party! Thanks for the invitation you hip cats! I hope that there is some food left! I bring you all caviar dreams - I know how cats like caviar - and catnip wishes! I'll refrain from using the litter box, though, if you don't mind. I'll just go outside and find a bush or something...if the need arises!

Licks and slobbers

MoMo said...

Hey Trixie and Tigger, you really have to look after Pyewacket! Can't have your little sister doin' that at a pawty.

Nice to see that Charlie has joined us. For the time being until the other cats arrive we can fly the Aussie flag with impunity. I'm sure Sassy, the Meezers and Momo-dog would humour us just this once!

Mia and Ghost said...

Hi, everyone - what a lovely setup Sassy. We don't know what to try first. Maybe we will go the dining room first.

Christine and FAZ said...

What a brilliant party! I especially loved all the games and I would so love to have my very own mice in a jar. FAZ

Pablo said...

Great party, Sassy! Hi everyone!

Tigger said...

Is it three mouseies in the jar?

Pablo said...

Oh no! Have I come at that awkward time where everyone on the other side of the world is asleep? Bummer! Oh well, I'll just help myself to a few snacks and find a corner to nap in until someothercats turn up...

Cat Naps in Italy said...

Awwwww man! We thought we would we be the fist to arrive because we live in Italy and are SIX HOURS AHEAD of you guys in the States! We didn't know Sassy was going to start the party EARLY! Congrats to Momo for the being the first to arrive.

We'll we are here now and really enjoying ourselves. Though someone needs to keep on eye on Roscoe. I think he has already had too much cat nip!

How you do you like our costumes? I wanted to go as the Romans, Cesare and Mark Anthony, but Roscoe wanted to dress up like Colts fans. Guess who won the mouse toss!

I am heading out back to dance a while! Nice to meet you all!

Love,
Opus (and Roscoe)

Cat Naps in Italy said...

I would say that there was four mice in the jar, that is until Opus ate one!

We thought we made a mistake on when the party was starting since everyone was already here on Saturday, but the invite says SUNDAY. Did you guys have a post party that we weren't told about?

Think you are getting low on gold fish water. Would you like me to set some more out for you?

Love,
Roscoe (and Opus)

MoMo said...

Looks like all the kitties from down under are raging while those from the north are still snoozing. Never mind. Sassy did say we could stay for as long as we like and there are plenty of food left for everyone!
MoMo

MoMo said...

Yep, Roscoe and Opus, you forget that we in Oz are far ahead of you, even in Italy. So we came by our time on Sunday. The southern contingent including a woofie from Sydney partied on regardless. Of course, being the ever considerate hostess Sassy opened her house extra early to accommodate us. Thanks, Sassy!
MoMo

Pablo said...

Hi Roscoe and Opus! Hi MoMo! As you can see, I've chosen to come to the party au naturel cause I'm not one for wearing clothes.

MoMo said...

Yeah, me too, but I represent the Cats from Geelong AFL. No need to dress up! I actually had a bow on when I arrived but lost it somewhere between the catnip binge and the jumping contest. Darn, still can't jump. Ate too much. Is Pye still sick? She was going green a while ago.
MoMo

Cat Naps in Italy said...

Hi Pablo! Glad you could make it. No clothes? We didn't know it is was THAT kind of party! Hehehehehe!

Can we get anyone another round of gold fish water? Anyone seen Sassy in a while? We haven't even seen her yet.

Hope Pye isn't feeling sick. We better go check the liter box and make sure she is ok.

Opus and Roscoe

*barf*

Daisy said...

Great party, Sassy! I am going to play the jumping game because I love to jump high.

Thanks for the delicious snacks, too.

Tigger and also Trixie said...

Thank you for having us. We three had a lovely time. We loved the games and meeting you and the others. You are the hostess with the mostess.
Please excuse Pye. He's only little. XXX

topcatrules said...

This is Trixie, Tigger can't type. Pye is a SHE!!!!
Thanks again for having us. It is Sunday night late here, after 9!

Cat Naps in Italy said...

We just want to know if Karl is ever gonna show up with the catnip?

Haven't seen Sassy yet today. Is she STILL in bed while the party is going on?

Opus and Roscoe

Sassy Cat said...

Glad everyone is having a good time. I cannot tell you the correct count of mice in a jar as there might be late arrivals, we still have the rest of the day to party on. Thanks Opus and Roscoe for keeping the drinks flowing in kitchen.
I am so happy that Momo is having such a good time, and a few friends invited along their friends. You can never have too many at a party.
I will get back with all my guest after the party for a personal conversation. Until then I will leave comments on my blog so as to keep in touch with my party friends.
Momo, Topcatrule (Tigger & Trixie), The Meezers, Momo the dog, Orable & Charlie, Mia & Ghost, Christine & Faz, Pablo, Cat Naps In Italy (Opus & Roscoe), & Daisy glad you could make the party.
Hey, Opus make sure you see that Roscoe gets home safely when you guys leave. You are welcome to sleep here if Roscoe needs to sleep it off if you want to.
Got to run now I need to put more snacke out.

Daisy said...

Karl

Name: Mr. Hendrix said...

Hi Sassy Cat! What a lovely home you have. This looks like a great party. I'm going to guess, um, 4 mice in the jar! I hope my ely-phant hat costume doesn't get in the way of my jumping.

Name: Mr. Hendrix said...

Oh, these snacks are very yummy Sassy Cat. You are a very good cook and hostess.

Astrid, Kashim & Othello said...

Name: Mr. Hendrix said...

I believe I'll join Othello at the buffet with the chicken. mmmm chicken.

Cat Naps in Italy said...

Did someone mention chicken??? In Italy they have this stuff called pollo, but I tell ya, it tastes just like chicken!

I'm on my way to the buffet! Is there any "yardbird" left?

Roscoe

Fat Eric said...

Think I'd better get over to the buffet before Othello and Hendrix finish off all the chicken!

*nom nom nom nom*

Oh yes, and the mice in a jar, is it 20??

Cat Naps in Italy said...

Hey Karl! We are so glad you could make it! Thanks for brining the fresh nip. Since they don't have any in Italy, maybe I could buy a bag off of ya to take back home?

Opus

The Cat Realm said...

Opus you can have all the nip I brought!!! Knock yourself out!
Has anybody seen Ruis, maybe??? Did he come?
Karl

Samantha & Tigger said...

Hi Sassy! Thanks for the party. Mr. Tigger and I are here to have lots of fun. Are there 4 mices in the jar? I (Mr. T) want to play the jumping game. You have wonderful food. It is delicious. We see lots of our furiends. Do you like my Princess outfit? Tigger is dressed like a frootbat!
Your FL furiends,

Derby said...

Hi Sassy, nice party. But you don't have any niptini's for us adult kitties?

Oh well, tuna juice will work too. guess I will make my way through the buffet.

Derby said...

Let's see, I guess 6 on the number of mousies in the little jar.

Victor Tabbycat said...

Hi, Sassy! Wow, what a grate party spread! Hmmm... food or mousies... What first? Oh, I bought you a catnip bat toy. I hope you like it! Happy Howloween!

Alexi said...

Hi, Sassy!
Sorry, I'm late. I brought some ham for ham-tinis. I'll try the ball yarn game and the high jump. I like the mice in the jar game. I think it's three, but I don't think I'm the first to say that. Please look at our Siriusly Silly on our bloggie and the Halloween contest.

Cat Naps in Italy said...

Wow this party is really going great! I know you said it ends at midnight, but would you really throw all of us out Sassy?

Hi Derby, Victor,Alexi, Samantha and Tigger! Glad you guys could make it!

Thanks for the catnip Karl! I don't want to hog it all to myself though. Do join me for some nip.

Hey Derby, do you like our Halloween costumes? We know how much you love the Colts too! Sounds like they are off to a great start.

I think I am going to join the ball yarn game now. Is it too late to get in on it?

And by the way, has anyone seen my brother, Roscoe?

Opus

MoMo said...

Hi guys,
You thought I had left!!! No actually, I passed out behind the pumpkin men (aka the art works). That's why SS couldn't find me when she looked. That's one great party, Sassy! Thanks so much for having me and it was very nice to have met everyone. Well, it was a bit hazy later on. Mice in the jar? oh yes, three, since Opus ate one.
MoMo

Derby said...

Hi Opus and Roscoe. I didn't see you before with all of the kitties here.

I had to check out the end of the Colt's game. They won again. Still unbeaten.

Your costumes look great. I am not one for dressing up funny, but you two look cool.

Beau said...

Hi Everybody!! Sassy, this is a great party! Hi Derby, and all! I'm not staying long...just wanted to drop in a few minutes.

PB & J said...

Sorry we're so late - this is a grat party! Pearl wants to get in on the jumping contest, I'm off to hit the snacks.

Uh-oh, gotta go get Bert out of the Catnip - he's not even two yet!!

The Crew said...

Hi, we're here!! Who's here still?
Oh, there's the food table

The Crew said...

Hi Derby, how was your stay at the spa?

The Crew said...

Wow, look at all those cool punkin kitty carvings. Very nice decorations, Sassy.

The Crew said...

Sorry we didn't wear any costumes, Sassy. Mom's too lazy...er, I mean busy, to make us any. Besides we wouldn't wear them if she did!!

One-Eyed Jack said...

We're here!!!

Happy Halloween!!! Look! I'm a frootbat!!! I hope my wings don't get caught!

Hi Sassy! Nice to meet you!

~Persephone-bat

Hello Sassy! It's very nice to meet you! Thank you for hosting this party. You've laid out such a lovely spread, and so many games!

~Jack "Doctor Doom"

Sassy Cat said...

Karl, Mr. Hendrix, Astrid, Kashim & Othello, Samatha & Tigger, Derby, Victor Tabby Cat, Alexi, Beau, P B & J, The Crew George, Tipper, Max, & Misty-I am so happy to see all of you here. I have been working hard to keep the food and drinks flowing, if I have forgotten to greet anyone that was at my party but might have been missed if I was in another room please let me know. I am trying to touch base with all.

Thanks to those who brought extra traats for the party, much appreciated.

Keep on having a good time I think we will call it a day in a couple of hours. At eight 8:00 pm eastern dailight savings time the party will end. Anyone wanting to spend the night can do so.

Sassy Cat said...

One eyed-jack-Glad you could make it. I love the costume! This is such a fun time of year. Hurry and eat and drink as the party in winding down. it will be over in l l/2 hours. Party fast. If you want to stay the night feel free.

One-Eyed Jack said...

Oh wow! Look at the carved pumpkins!! Is one an adult-cat? 'Cause I LOVE catnip! There's goldfish water? Hi Misty!! Hi Tipper!!! Is Daisy still here too? Hi Mr Derby! VICTOR!!!! I'm gonna pounce you!!!!!! Yaaaaa-a-a-----!!!!!!

~Persephone

One-Eyed Jack said...

Please don't mind Persephone. Sassy. She gets into the crazies still sometimes. She won't break anything, I promise. Thank you for having us. We'll party fast. I'm sorry we're so late. My Opposable Thumb Wench doesn't get up until noon most days and our computer was down until the Big One could fix it.

~Jack

Beau said...

Hey Crew, O-E Jack! Sassy, the food is really delicious! You did well with this party!

Sassy Cat said...

One-eyed jack-don't hurry through the party. If you are still here at 8:00 you can party on. I have a feeling things will run over. Not time limit for a party. Can someone please pass me some more catnip?

Zippy, Sadie and Speedy said...

Oooo, we'z been partying so hard! hahahaha, Zippy tried her paw at whapping da yarn ball and gotted a little bit tangled...Hi Misty! Derby buddy...Jack, Persephone, George, Max, Tipper....oh, everycat!

Sassy Cat said...

One-eyed Jack & Persephone-Hey I cannot tell you two apart, maybe I will have to have you two wear name tags. Don't worry Persephone is in the right place to have some fun.

brandi said...

Ooh, Sassy. What a nice party. Is my sweetie still here? How is efurryone? Did someone say Ham-tinis??

Sassy Cat said...

Beau, Zipp, Speedy, Sadie, & Brandi-I am so glad you all are having a good time. I have a little more time to visit as the crowd in thinning out a little. I wanted to talk more with each of you but found myself so busy keeping the food flowing etc. I will get with all of those who attended and will post about this most wonderful day.

The Crew said...

Sassy, we had trouble telling Jack & Persephone apart too. She said you can tell it's her 'cause she has ear tufts!

The Crew said...

Does anyone want to play yarn ball batting with me? We can see who can bat it the farthest. Is there a pink yarn ball Sassy? That's my color.

Misty

Beau said...

Sassy, I hope you haven't been so busy hosting that you didn't get to enjoy your own party! That would be awful! I certainly have felt welcomed!!

brandi said...

Yes, you need to have a lovely time yourself, Sassy!

Beau said...

I will Misty =gently bats ball so Misty can win=

Beau said...

Brandi, how is your mom? Has she started her new job yet?

Sassy Cat said...

Misty-I am not sure if the pink yarn is still available. It might have gotten batted into the neighbors yard. We really had some good hitters.

The Crew said...

OK, I'll use a purple one. That's Tipper's color. Go ahead Beau, hit it hard. I'm young but I'm strong!

Misty

Beau said...

Sassy, it's been wonderful, but I must leave now. Do take care. =bows a southern gentleman bow= I bid you a good evening. good evening everyone! =waves paw at crowd, teleports out=

The Crew said...

So Sassy, how many guests do you think came to the party?

Let's get some dessert everyone. We'll have to go soon. Mom said we have to be home by 6PM.

George

The Crew said...

Before we go, we'll guess 3 mice in the jar.

Oh, it seems like we missed seeing almost everyone but I guess that's what happens with cats come and go.

Thanks so much for the great party Sassy.

George, Tipper, Max & Misty

Sassy Cat said...

Beau-I bid good-bye, please don't wait until another party before you stop back.

George, Tipper, Max, & Misty-If you have to leave and need seconds for dessert please take some home with you. I hope you had a good time, it was so nice to see all of you.

Sassy Cat said...

George, Tiper, Max, & Misty-Oh, I almost forgot to answer your question, how rude. I think I had forty-eight guests. Pretty cool huh?

LHK said...

Sassy, thank you for inviting me.
Goodness what a great party!!
The snacks are delectable, and the company even better.

Would any of the ladies like to dance? I feel like shakin' my Boo-tay.
---Beezer

Sassy Cat said...

Ihk-I am so glad that you could make it. I am a little tired but I will dance just a couple of slow dances if you don't mind. Don't forget to help yourself to food and the drinks, plenty left.

Sassy Cat said...

THANKS TO ALL WHO ATTENDED THE PARTY. I HAD A BLAST AND HOPE YOU ENJOYED YOURSELVES TOO. DETAILS ABOUT THE PARTY TO FOLLOW.

Cat Naps in Italy said...

Yawn! Oh my goodness, is it Monday morning? Uh oh, it is 7am in Italy, our human isn't gonna be happy that we were out all night.

We aren't sure what happened, but when Roscoe and I woke up we were in bathtub! Thank goodness there wasn't any water in it! Better get back to Italy before the humans notice we are still gone!

Thanks so much for a great party Sassy! It was wonderful to see all of our old friends and to make some new ones too.

Love,
Opus (and Roscoe)

Sassy Cat said...

Opus & Roscoe-Oh my, I am so sorry that you slept in the bathtub. If I had known you were staying over I could have found you a softer place. I hope you guys aren't too sore from being in such a hard bed.

Do you have a plane to catch? I hope your mom and dad sleep in so they won't know you are not home and worry about you.

I am going to look around the house today just to make sure no one else is here. I believe that I said bye to all of those who left the party, not sure how I missed you two. Anyway hope you had a good time.
