It's My Birthday and I'll Cry If I Want To

Today is my birthday.

YaoLin Birthday 2




The human stupidly believes that a blinged up photo of me will compensate for a lack of actual birthday photos.

Allow me to elaborate.

I awoke this morning to see the human slave rushing around, getting ready for work.

Yes, you heard me correctly. She actually abandoned me on my birthday. She chose to work instead of spending the day with me ON MY SPECIAL DAY.

Mortified, I sauntered into the living room, only to find...nothing. No presents. Not a thing.

Well, apart from the obligatory poo print placed by you-know-who.

Suffice to say, this day - my second birthday - is even worst than my first.

Happy birthday to me. NOT.

Yours, sobbing inconsolably

O, Yao-lin, i's so sorry to hear this. our birfdays should be tha hilite of our beans lives. how could they be so shallow.
why don't u's throw a partee since no one's home? i can bring some of my tuna wassail or some catnip sno cones (brrrr)... maybe we could get the other cats together and TRASH YOUR HOUSE. Hee hee, that'd teech 'em to leaf you all alone on tha most specshul impawtant day of the year.

Happy 2nd Birthday Yao-Lin! We can't believe she'd rather got to work than celebrate your Birthday!

Give her The Bitey and be done with it.

Fat Eric said...

Yao-lin, happy happy purrthday to you. Maybe it's not as bad as you think, maybe she is just pretending to have forgotten your purrthday but really when she gets home from work she is going to throw you a massive big surprise party with lots of toys, treats, guests and niptinis?

MAYBE!

Oh Yao-lin! Yao-lin!

Happy purr day to you!!!! We all love you - and Tigger did you a picture because we think you are the most beautiful cat in the world.

PB & J said...

Oh Yao-Lin, that is sad! My Mommy went to work on my birthday too, and I didn't get any presents till the weekend - hopefully they have a big celebration planned for this evening and you don't know it yet!!!!

Happy Birthday to you from us though!

Purrs,
Bert (and Jake and Pearl too)

Oh man! How come we didn't get advanced notice is was your birthday from your beans? We'll never get a royal parade worthy of you set up in time. Where can I find a carriage drawn by 6 pure white horses? A court jester to entertain you? A marching band to play your favorite songs?
I'll send Bendrix over to deal with your servent abandoning you on your royal birthday.
He'll bring warm weather with him. tee hee hee

Happy second birthday Your Royal Highness Yaolin!

We'll be waiting to see your surprise gifts and steaks. Perhaps you'll get a stack of filet 6 inches thick!!

Hot(M)BC said...

Happy Birthday, Yao-Lin! Even though your birthday was not all you had hoped, it is still a special day. And remember, the day is not over yet, so presents could still be on their way to you!

Kellie The Orange Cat said...

Oh poor Yao-lin! I would have thought this would be a national holiday in GB!

Did Baby Mao at least wish you a Happy Birthday?

I will teleport over to help trash your house - that will teach your servant!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY Yao-lin! I didn't realize you are only 2 years old - you have had to suffer so much in your life!

Magoo, Smudge, Bella & Dolce said...

Your Royal Highness, Yao-lin, say it isn't so! I feel so sorry for you, Sir. Can I come and help trash your place too? I'm very good at whapping things, just like Sammy Meezer. I can go to town on a coffee table laden with magazines. Books on shelves? Not when I'm around!

Please forgive me - I was busy with the preparations of our 5 day trip to Ireland starting tomorrow and the sending of your prize for the Red Carpet Buzz contest win... it went out today, so it should be there in like 2 weeks, hahahahahahahaha.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY YAO-LIN!

Artsy Catsy said...

Yao-lin, we just heard about your dreadful predicament! So I brought my whole houseful to wish you a Happy Purrthday, to worship at your feet, and to put the final touches on the house trashing. We even saved up all our hairballs to yak up and made sure we have lots of dirty litter stuck between our toes.

OK, staff, ... let the yakking, litter-flinging and trashing begin!!!

Jimmy Joe said...

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, YAO-LIN! I can't believe you didn't wake up yesterday morning to find a crystal dish full of caviar and some sour cream and blinis. You got stuck with a real cut-rate slave, buddy. Hey, can I knock the key-rack off the wall? I LOVE doing that!
Your buddy, Jimmy Joe

Ruis said...

This is soooo bad!! I just heard from Karl what happened yesterday... nothing thus. Humans... where is she, where are the ornaments...grrrrr ??

I am too late, I know (you may bite me;) but I wish you a wonderful new year of your life!!

Headbutts,

Dragonheart & Merlin said...

Oh Yao-lin, we are so sorry to hear you didn't receive any presents for your birthday. :( That is just unacceptable. Still, we hope you have a Happy Birthday, regardless.

Cat Naps in Italy said...

We are a day late and a dollar (er, euro) short! Stopping by to wish you a very happy belated birthday!

Buon compleanno!

Isis said...

Oh Yau-Lin that's criminal behaviour on the part of your slave! How could she abandon you on your 2nd birthday? What does she mean with giving you no presents? It's inexcusable bad manners not to shower ones regal feline with toys, treats and other assorted goodies! Look at me I got a hand made blanket in the wool of my choosing, a special yummy dinner, catnip, Dad and the boy home with me all day and not just Mummy - plus a few days later I got a dirty weekend away with all the trimmings so to speak! ;) *giggle*blush* After all I'm a queen and deserve it! Just as you too deserve showering in gifts, I mean the very least she could do was supply you with a large bucket of KFC for your breakfast!

You are totally within your rights to get Baby Mao to leave poo prints all over her bedding while you work on shredding the curtains a little more! It's sure to make you feel a little better... ;)

Purrs,
Isis

Tamra Maew said...

Happy 2nd Birthday! This is truly aweful Yao-Lin... but I still have to insist that I am having a worst day (pictures on my blog say it all).

I wish you a good biting session tonight as a consequence of your human's actions.

Purrrs, Tamra

HAPPY PURRFDAY!

Kaze, Latte, & Chase said...

Aww Yao-lin it looks like you were able to stir up some trouble! When Baby-Mao's package arrives please consider it a birthday present from me :).

Happy belated birthday, Yao-lin. I am sorry that your birthday sucked so much. Your slave is definitely lacking in the Yao-lin adoration department. This is an outrage.
