Brulee's Birthday Circus

Come one, come all to help Brulee's celebrate her 1st birthday at the circus.  Brulee is known for her gorgeous silver shaded floof, but she's a clown at heart!  Brulee was born on August 27, 2011 to Mikayla and Jayden in a litter of 4 kittens.  Brulee is a half-sister to Truffle because they share the same mancat dad.  Brulee was such a shy little thing as a kitten and both Mom Terri and Mom Paula thought she'd be a purrfect sibling to the outgoing, independent  Truffle.  Mom Paula selected Brulee at 6 weeks of age.  The very next week, Mom Terri sent Mom Paula this video of Brulee.  She had definitely come out of her shell and has been a clown ever since.



Mom Paula is serving as the ringmaster for the circus and Truffle is serving as her lovely assistant.

Cody, from Cat Chat is the first one to arrive to the circus.  Cody says he isn't up to any tricks today but he wanted to bring birthday greetings to Brulee by bringing flowers and a circus ball for all of the kitties to play on.


The first entertainment of the evening is provided by Domino and Dante from Wendy's 3-D Cats.  Domino is the beautiful lion tamer and the ever handsome Dante is the lion, of course (doesn't he look like one?)

The crowd is wowed by Dylan from Wendy's 3-D Cats is the circus magician and he is assisted by the lovely Halle from Jacqueline's Cat House.

We just spotted two of the spectators from Alasandra's, The Cats and a Dog.  Scylla has never been to a circus and she just wants to watch everything and take it all in.

Socks joined Scylla as a spectator.  He claims he's too old for any dare-devil tricks and will leave those to the younger kitties.  We bet he was some dare-devil in his younger days.

Spyro from Herman's Hideaway was in the Ring 2.  Spyro's special trick is to jump way up high on the screen door and stay there forever!  We are very impressed.

In Ring 3 it's none other than our own Brulee trying to tame the savage Hammy (Diego) from Rumblebum.  Hammy became a little smitten with Brulee at Truffle's Debutante Ball.  They were chaperoned by Mom Paula, but we think they slipped a few kisses when no one was looking.

The kitties from Prancer Pie were the next to arrive.  Prancer Pie, Princeton, Princess, and Precious just couldn't help themselves.  They had to get in the center ring and sing a birthday tune to Brulee.

Look who we spotted in the stands!  It's TwoTwo, Joe, Splitters, and Tabatha from Margs Pets.  TwoTwo is in the red dress, Joe is the donkey, Splitters in sitting quietly watching all of the festivities, and Tabatha proud to be wearing one of Judi's hats.

Uh oh!  Looks like some of the kitties are misbehaving in the stands and behind the tents.  Mom Peggy (Laila and Minchie's mom) and Mom Dee (Angel's mom) decided to come to the circus to help Mom Paula chaperone everyone.  We're not quite sure who's chaperoning who?  Just look at those party hats!  Somebody better check the punch bowl!

Laila is just the cutest little clown.  She is having a blast running around in the circus rings.  She better watch out because Brulee loves to chase feathers, especially pink feathers!

Minchie just wanted to hang out in the stands with his buddies.  We think they are checking out all of the beautiful ladycats in attendance and performing.  Baby Patches is sure to be watching Minchie very closely.

We have a very special performer today purrforming a daring trick!  It's Angel!  Many of you will remember that Angel stayed with Laila and Minchie for a while when his mom was renovating their home.  Angel is a furrocious lion and has to be kept in his cage until the very last second.

Well, looks who came to the circus to watch all of the performances (his mom said he was too young to perform just yet).  It's baby mancat, Quill from Housecat Confidential.  We just know he's going to be breaking a lot of ladycat's hearts as he gets older.

Our special guests in the VIP section are the Zoolatry girls:  Maggy, Zoey, and Mom Ann.  Zoey is a little clown like Brulee, so there's no telling what they have planned for today.  Mom Ann is one of our most favorite humans in the CB.  We are so glad she could make it today.  And look, even Maggy agreed to be a clown today.

Truffle decided since Maggy and Ann agreed to be clowns that Mom Paula and she should also be clowns.  Brulee is MOL at the sight of their red noses!

The Florida Furkids from Friends Furever are the next performers for the circus.  Performing in Ring 1 is Ellie and Allie who are traditionally trained circus style performers presenting comedic juggling, hula hoop routines, contortion, and balancing acts.

Cubby and Clifford are so excited about coming to the circus.  We catch them as they enter the Big Top.  We hope they behave themselves around all of the kitties!

Cousin Trooper is entertaining all of the spectators with his clown antics.  He just loves to "clown around."

We have our first guests from across the pond from the UK:  Hannah and Lucy.  Hannah is looking adorable as she watches all of the circus acts.  

Lucy looks quite fetching as she observes the performers.

Maybe Hannah and Lucy have spotted the handsome mancats from Derby and Ducky in the stands.  Derby and Ducky said they don't do funny hats or noses and they definitely don't dress up.  They wanted to attend to help Brulee celebrate her first birthday.
 Derby

Ducky

Breaking news!  We have another lion tamer act, but hold onto your hats because this time, the lion tamer is a woofie!  Maverick, from Life from a Cat's Perspective, is the daring lion tamer of Samantha and Clementine.   We're holding our breath for this act!

Brulee decided she'd take a break from performing and enjoy all of the circus acts and her first sip of a niptini provided by Samantha, Clementine, and Maverick.  We wonder who she's sharing that second glass of niptini champagne with . . . Brulee is definitely a "diva in training".

The older kitties of Random Felines decided to send the kittens (Boubon, Whiskey, Gin, and Moonshine) to the circus in their stead.  They took a vote and decided they were just a little too old to party like that anymore.  They promised they would send someone to pick up the kitts in time for bed (though their mom promises to let them stay a little late).  Doc was asked if he wanted to attend and his response was "Happy Birthday wishes to Miss Brulee.  She is very very pretty.  I would love to go, but honestly, clowns scare me."

We've set aside a special section for the baby kitts at the circus (the Random Felines sat with Quill).  Just look who traveled from across the pond to entertain the younger set!  It's our favorite mancat, Ginger Jasper!  We're sure everyone is excited about seeing him.  Ginger Jasper was one of Sweet Praline's gentlemancats!


We would like to introduce another Southern Belle Ladycat, Miss Madi, from Madi and Mom.  Madi lives in North Carolina and we live in South Carolina.  We are so happy she could join Brulee for her 1st birthday celebration.  Madi is an expert in tongue curling!

Look who showed up on all their birthday party finery!  It's Tillie, Georgia, Tiger, Treasure, JJ, and Julie from Mickey's Musings.  They are having a pawsome, fun time at the circus.  

We think we see some more of our furriends from across the pond!  Yes!!!   It's Eric and Flynn from Eric and Flynn's Adventures.  Eric is sitting in the audience watching his brother, Flynn jump through the hoops of fire in the center ring!  Eric sure looks calm watching his brother.
 Eric

Flynn jumping through the ring of fire!  Just amazing!

Sparkle and Binga, from Sparkle the Designer Cat, were able to travel from the West Coast to entertain the little ones.  Even though Sparkle insists she isn't a clown, we think she is purrfect! 

Binga is a little more comfortable being a clown but you never know what a tortie may do.

We believe we've spotted Savannah from Savannah's Paw Tracks in the stands!  Yes!  It's her.  We're so glad she could make it to the circus today.  Savannah always reminds Mom Paula of her first cat, Muff.

And taking time from celebrating their recent 6th blogoversary are Ayla, Iza, and Marley from Mark's Mews.  We want to congratulate them on six years of successful blogging.

Our last act of the evening are a very special group of clown couples!  We have Dante and Sascha (Brian's Home) who are one of the newest couples in the CB, Dylan and Halle, Milo and Domino, and Alfie and Cory.

We are so happy you could join us under the big top today for Brulee's first birthday!  She is such a sweet little ladycat clown and Mom Paula and Truffle are so happy she came to live with us!  Happy 1st Birthday to our favorite little clown, Brulee!

Looks like we have some late arrivals.  Tamir (Friends Furever) and Gracie (Goodness Gracie) did a little celebrating just before they got to the party.  Gracie's mom noticed they weren't at the party and caught them.  Gracie has promised a tell all tomorrow to show everycat how they got a little side tracked and had dinner at Le Cirque together.  At least they made it to the party.

Oh my darling girl! I want to wish you the very happiest of birthdays, specially as it's your FIRST!

I'm sorry my lame-o Human did not send in my photo (she was all "distracted" by the beginning of school) and then of course there was the OUTRAGE that befell me last week.

But that's all water under the bridge and it's time to PAWTY!! I need a Niptini and a nice cuddle from the birthday girl! XOXOXO
