Great news! The mom of the house is recovering nicely from her gall bladder surgery on Monday and I will be able to attend Asta's Halloween party! I think it is because of the great care Opus and I gave her that made her feel so good that we can leave her at home alone and party on. I want to thank Opus for coming over to help me with her surgery and home care.

On October 30th Asta is cohosting a Halloween party in New York with Eric and Lacie. So the first plan of action was to get Opus to pick all of us up in the MFV.
First to get picked up was Momo, in Australia, before they left Momo gave Opus a tour of the harbour . . .

. . . next stop was picking up the gang at The Cat Realm. . . This is Tintin's first big outing with all of us and he doesn't want to miss a minute of anything.
. . . Anxiously waiting for the arrival of my dear sweet friends I was next to be picked up . . . next stop New York City!
. . . Arriving in NYC we are all ready to party in our Halloween costumes. Now all we need to do is find a parking place.
Everyone is invited so please join in on the fun!
HAPPY HALLOWEEN TO ALL!!!

MOTH UPDATE: Monday 9:19 pm
I am happy to report that the mom of the house is doing pretty good considering her operation today. I would like to think that it is due to Opus and myself overseeing the procedure that she had done today. Moth is getting the best of care at home, having been released only 2 l/2 hours after her surgery, and spent most of the day sleeping. She has eaten lightly throughout the day and isn't in too much discomfort, thank goodness for Tylenol and Ibuprofen. Her home care is excellent and she has been spoiled all the day long, as she should be.
My sissie, Asta, stopped by today to bring flowers over. Thanks Asta mom of the house really like getting flowers. She had us put them near her where she can enjoy seeing them all the day.
Opus went out while our patient was asleep and picked up some balloons for her. Thanks so much Opus for being such a sweet caring cat. You always know just the right thing to do.
She also wants to let you know that she appreciates all of your kind words and it makes her feel extra good to know my friends are worried about her and wishing her a quick recovery.
Monday is going to be a first of all firsts for Opus and myself. You see the MOTH, mom of the house, is having minor surgery. To make a long story short after her surgery no one can ever say that she has a lot of gall, as the gallbladder will be a thing of the past. I have been told that the surgery is fairly simple, as far as those things go, and the work will be done as an in out patient . . .
. . . with her facing this I couldn't let her be trusted into the hands of strangers so Opus and I will be overseeing the procedure. Opus and I have been reading up on this since last week sometime and are assisting in the operating room and overseeing her home care.

The Cat Realm sent this beautiful get well card to MOTH, I know this will cheer her up and make her feel better. Thanks guys.
My sissie, Momo sent over a beautiful photo of her with a nice greeting for a quick recovery. Thanks sissie.
Waiting for MOTH when she gets back home to recover is a beautiful basket of flowers sent over by Jan's Funny Farm gang. Thanks so much JFF this will certainly help her feel better.

Not sure if this is my nursing outfit or Halloween outfit. I hope this doesn't make her laugh so much that she pulls her stitches.
I will not be able to visit for several days as I will certainly be busy here but you can be sure I will be around to celebrate Halloween, even if she isn't feeling good, ha, ha, ha. I mean I hope she is recovered well enough that I can leave and have some trick or treat time.
Please think good thoughts for MOTH that she makes a speedy recovery.

October is such a great time of year with the changes in the weather and the excitement of Halloween at the end of the month. Another fun time was when I received another great photo from Maggy, Zoey, and Ann from Zoolarty. Thanks so much for your beautiful photo you made for me.

SPECIAL ANNOUNCEENT: The party has been extended through the night and all day on Saturday. Arrangements have been made if you need to take a nap see Opus and he will show you where the rest place is. So, party on!!!!!!!!
Welcome to my First Blogoversary! I am so glad that you could make it and hope you have a lot of fun today. I knew this was going to be a fun and an exciting day, which started when I opened my email this morning. I received the following gifts:
A greeting card from Opus and a new profile photo, thanks Opus!
Also from The Cat Realm this most stunning trophy, thanks so much!!!
For my first blogoversary I tried to think of something that hadn't been done yet and the idea of paintball sounded perfect. For those of you that don't know what paintball is or how to play I will have that information available.
WHAT IS PAINT BALL?
The sport of paintball has become recognized as one of the world's most exciting outdoor participation sports. Paintball is a combination of the childhood games such as tag or hide and seek, but it is much more challenging and sophisticated. Typically a group of players are divided into two teams with the objective of eliminating opposing players by hitting them with a paintball shot from a special airgun. Win or lose, everyone has a good time and there is always another game waiting to be played.

Paintball guns are powered by carbon dioxide or compressed air and come in various shapes and styles. Many of the guns use large refillable cylinders called tanks or bottles, which give hundreds of shots before needing to be refilled. The paintball guns that we are using today are semi-automatic that allows you to simply squeeze the trigger each time you want to shot a paintball. The paintball gun's range is limited to only about 50 yards.
A paintball is a round, thin-skinned gelatin capsule with coloured liquid inside. The capsules are filled with a "paint" that is non-toxic, non-caustic, water-soluble, and biodegradable. You can remove the paint from clothing and skin with mild soap and water. A player who is hit and marked with paint is eliminated from the game.

Before we divide into teams I will have Tintin go over the safety rules that he was nice enough to research for me. When he is finished he will pass out your gun, paintballs, and all of the safety items you will need to make your paintball experience safe and fun. Also, we will have a target for you to practice before the games begin if you would like to do so.
SAFETY: Paintball players must always wear eye-protecting goggles specifically designed for paintball and must be worn during all games and at all times! A protective face mask is mandatory as well. Paintball is a very safe sport as long as safety rules are followed. As you can see from the photo of Tintin and myself the importance of following all these rules, plus your fur will be protected.

Since we all have been playing hard it might be a good time to take a food break. I have several different pizzas for the kitties and doggies. Also, be sure to belly up to the bar and have a drink to wash the pizza down. For your sweet teeth I have a chocolate cake that Karl and Ruis delivered to me for my blogoversary and a delicious vanilla cake sent over by Mrs. Oz and Tintin, thanks to my Cat Realm buddies for your thoughtfulness.

Please accept this abstract painting as my gift to you for sharing in our paintball party. Before you all arrived I had a big sheet put up outside and this represents the stray shots fired here today. Each time you look at it I hope you will remember the fun we had today.
Heading out to catch up with Momo.
I want to thank you for coming and hope you enjoyed yourself! Please feel free to stay as long as you like. I do have some night games planned and you are welcome to join in.
