I like cats a lot, hence why most of the things in my home are shaped like cats. Everything is cats, even the furniture. It’s all cats.
It’s okay, I know what you’re thinking: crazy cat lady alert! Well, let me set your mind at ease, because I totally have a boyfriend. He lives in Canada. No, like, somewhere in the North. I haven’t met him yet, but he;super good looking and one day we will wed, and we’ll unite our cat families as one. And I only have four cats. That’s not even that many by cat lady standards.
So now that we’ve got that out of the way, I’ve been asked to give some advice on how to throw the perfect kitty birthday party. It’s not as easy as it sounds, because as I discovered when entering the Cat Dancing Competition, being in tune with your cat is a fickle thing. My first attempt at a party had me finding the perfect party venue. Some birthday venues in Melbourne, you say? Shouldn’t be too hard! Alas, it was much more so than you’d expect. You see, Albert (my first cat) is a big fan of wood paneling. It was the reason I had my entire apartment renovated, so it’d be nicer on his paws. Like an idiot, I totally forgot this for the party, so he spent the whole thing shooting me grumpy looks and padding around on the lanolin floor as if it was burning his paws. Amateur mistake, and one often made by folks who are planning parties for the first time.
Now, it may seem difficult to find the perfect function room for all your needs. Cats are so different, and they all have such beautiful and varying souls that they seem impossible to please. The trick is therefore not twofold, not threefold, but many more fold. You have to be diligent. Alert. Know each and every cat, see the world through their eyes and think of what they want in a party. Humans will compromise if you book some party venue around Melbourne and they don’t really like it. Cats are creatures of honesty and taste. And that’s the first of my tips for planning your Purr-fect Kitty Bash!
