I can NOT believe my babies are FIVE!

Leo has been here for almost four and a half years, the girls just over a year. They still seem like babies to me. LARGE babies, but babies none the less. They certainly play like kittens! And that's why we're having a big blow out party for their FIFTH BIRTHDAY!

But first, the obligatory baby picture!

Leo is top left, Glitter in the front and Cashmere on the right.
Bottom left is, I believe, Spritz, another sister. Not pictured here are the other two sisters, Mitts and Tuxie/Trixie.
Glitter: We dun like you, humans!
Cashmere: Yeah, go 'way!
Leo: Please... I can't back up any further!
Spritz: Before I get squished please!

Hard to believe that these scared, feral babies who wanted no contact at all with people are now the most loving, attention hungry, cuddlebugs! We are ever so thankful to Chrystal for rescuing them and for letting us adopt them!

You can read their harrowing rescue tale in Chrystal's book! Which you can buy HERE. And trust me, it's worth the read! Leo and the girls' family show up near the end of the book, but there are lots of other awesome rescue stories! Oh, and as an added bonus, if you buy the book, Winnie's Wish gets money to keep rescuing more kitties!

Onto the party!

Please enjoy lots of yummy foods!

And Ice Cream!

Oh there will be dancing and playing all day and through the night! Please pop over and join us!
Pull up a box and listen to the cat band!

We could think of no better way to celebrate Leo, Glitter and Cashmere's birthday than to ask for adoptions for other Winnie's Wish kitties! Please visit the Daily Dose site and check out the kitties on the side bar, all waiting for their perfect homes!
If you are so inclined, you could make a donation to them via the paypal button on their site, or even fulfill Wish List item! (It's my understanding that they are in serious need of litter, but any items on the list would be greatly appreciated!)

Thank you all for coming! We would not be here if you, our dear friends! It was, after all, your suggestion that we start a blog when Leo was adopted, and we are so so so glad we took that advice!
Thank you!

Happy Birthday Leo the Chinese Lion!
Happy Birthday Glitter!
Happy Birthday Cashmere!
