Tummy Tuesday Tea Party!!!!

Well hello everykitty! :) I'm so pleased that you're all here for my first Tea Party... Please make yourself comfortable on the sofa, chaise lounge or stool - there is also a large soft cushion in the corner and 2 large cat beds for those who prefer! :) Oh and there are plenty of throws for those ladycats who feel the cold easily...

Help yourself to some of the delicious tea; Twinings Breakfast Blend is my personal favourite at present! :) Though we have peach and redcurrent, lime and ginger, fennel, green and jasmine teas for those who prefer something a little more exotic... I believe my loyal Lady in Waiting, the lovely Miss Peach is coming over with a little of her excellent catnip tea in a bit and maybe a few others for you all to try! :)

There's plenty of nice nibbly food on the table, turkey terrine, poached prawns in a delightful fish broth, a vast array of kitty bikky, including some delightful organic varieties in very pleasing shapes! There is a catnip jelly with thick kitty milk for pudding too, so don't over indulge on the savouries... ;) I'm sorry to say we have to go without kitty paella as I was a little over excited in waking Mummy up and managed to stick one of my claws into her leg with all my weight behind it (while trying to rescue the mousie I took up for her to play with...) - the end result being that Mummy woke everyone in the house up screaming as a result of my claw... :( Apparently being woken up with a claw shoved into ones soft inner thigh is grossly inappropriate iffen you want that self same person to spend the morning cooking for you... ;) Well at least I've learnt that lesson before I have the kittens here, I guess I had better teach them this most valuable of lessons before letting them leave home?! ;)

Oh and before I forget any ladycat wishing to play for a bit can join my brother Ramses and our housemate Tigmut'hep with all the Mancats in the cat run! They are showing everyone our nearly completed kitty condo, so do take a quick look...

Hello sweet little mommy to be! Well here I am with all of my trays of delicious goodies! Ramses helped me carry most of them in earlier. He promised to take good care of the mancats who come along and play in the kitty condos.
My you are looking so fine today Isis. Such a glow all about you...becoming a mommy does seem to agree with you. Do put your paws up and let me rub your shoulders a little. I see this is the paw that offened mommy this morning...maybe you should wear gloves:) when you go to bed. Paella would have been so nice to round out the offerings.
Do try one of my liver pate sandwiches while I put on the kettle and prepare the tea before any of the guests arrive.

Isis said...

Ooh liver my current fave! :) Yummy, yummy... Oh Miss Peach you make the bestest sandwiches and I'm sure iffen you ask Mummy nicely she'll relent and make us some paella! ;) She's a soft touch really, just not when she's had her leggy badly scratched...

The tea smells divine and you'll find plenty of kitty milk in the fridge - as you know I like my tea nice and milky! :)

goldenshade said...

Shade~ Hello to you both! I am soooo excited to see you. You are both so beautiful, Isis you are absolutely radiant. What a wonderful place you have here. I am so happy to get out of the snow for a bit. I have brought some creton for you to try. It is a French Canadian pate. Oh, thanks Miss Peach for the tea. Ahhh.....I am just going to sit on this beautiful cushion and sip.

So any good gossip?

Isis said...

Oh yes, there's always lots of good gossip! :)

Mmm... yummy pate and of course Miss Peach makes the bestest tea! :)

Did you hear about Skeezix? He can't look at a picture of the lovely Daisy the curly cat, without getting urges! ;) He's got it bad for her... *giggle* But didn't he get her the prettiest flowers for her birthday! They were so pretty and I'm sure they smelt wonderful too...

Goodness isn't my belly getting big, I can rest my tea cup on it! ;) Mummy says the ickle baby kittens will pretty much double in size from now until I have them... I'm going to look like a beached whale iffen that's true! Oh well I'll work it all off as soon as they're born, no doubt! ;)

MISS PEACH >(^.^) said...

I do hope the tea party goes on for a long while. I must even hope that it lasts till tomorrow! Mommy wants to put me to bed now as it is 4 in the morning. We will awake again in about 9 hours and by then the party will have been in good swing. SO I will see you again in the evening. There is extra tea water cooking and the treats are stacked in the cold box ready for serving. I am glad Shade is here with that delish pate to keep you company until the guests arrive. Let me fill your cups before I retire...I will bring back some marzipan mice when I return.

Ramses said...

Oh I think I'll pop by later for a marzipan mouse iffen you ladycats don't mind?! :)

Dragonheart & Merlin said...

Hello Isis. :) We hope that you and all the Ladycats have a wonderful tea party. :)

Isis said...

Oh thank you boys! :) Oh you're so cute little Merlin... Come over here and let me give your ears a good cleaning! ;) Go on I'll let you have a cream puff after iffen you're a good boy and don't squirm! :)

Charlotte said...

Hi Isis. I thought I'd pop in to say hello ad introduce myself. I love a little social gathering, however I don't get out that often, mainly cause my SMS is too darn lazy, busy at work or too tired. So slack of her. I told her to check out the blogoshpere and saw that you were having a tea party. You are so kind to host a tea party. I also love twinings tea. My favourite is earl grey, then English breakfast but I'll drink any tea. I've never had catnip tea before though.
Thought I'd bring a Salmon pie. It's my first time making it so I hope it is OK.
Miss Peach is so kind to have brought liver pate sandwiches. mmmm they are so delicious!
Isis you are definitely the hostess with the mostest!

Charlotte said...

The pregnancy sounds like it is going well. Let me use the special necklace to swing it around your tummy to see what you will be having......

OH! I think it is swing in all directions! That means boys and girls! You need to eat up girlfriend! You have to feed your little babies in there!

So who is your Valentine?

Isis said...

Hi Charlotte! :) It's so lovely to meet more ladycats here... Oh you think I'll have a nice mixed litter - that's just perfect! :) I wonder if the boys will look like their father GC Silversmoke Dan Dare? Maybe they'll look more like Ramses or our father GC Myleenus Lordofthelynx? Oh that would be so wonderful... *giggle* I so hope the girls look like me! :)

Mmm... this pie is very yummy! :) I'm starting to find my big belly useful for putting my plates down on! ;)

As for Valentines I have told Napoleon he can take me to an all you can eat buffet for a nice long romantic meal, at which I intend to try at least a little of everything they have on offer! ;) Since he got "fixed" a few months ago, he seems pretty happy with this arrangement! :) It seems he's nearly as interested in food as he is ladycats now! ;) *giggle*

Princess said...

Thank you for the plate of goodies, Isis. I thought i would come over for a little bit and try some of the goodies and see how you look.
You do look wonderful!

Daisy said...

Hi Isis! This is a very wonderful Tea Party! Can I rub your tummy a little bit? I think I can feel the little babies inside. You sure look beautiful!

The tea and snacks are yummy, too.

Gandalf & Grayson said...

We just wnated to see if you had better food than Ramses. Have a wonderful Tea Party Isis & Ladycats

Isis said...

Oh Prinnie, you made it here! :) I'm so very happy to have you visiting me... Please do take a seat on the chaise lounge as it's just the warmest place to sit here! :)

Of course you can rub my belly Daisy! Mummy says in another week to 10 days I should be able to feel the kittens starting to move - now won't that be fun?! :) Though I might have to look for a new place to rest my tea cup... ;) *giggle* Oh and Daisy did you know that Skeezix has it really bad for you? He sent those lovely flowers and all that, but I hear he gets these urges all the time he looks at you! Now you've just got to tell me your trick... *giggle* It could come in very handy the next time Mummy lets me go off for a naughty weekend with a sexy stud mancat! ;) *blush*giggle*

Isis said...

Oh Gandolf and Grayson I do so hope you were covering your ears just then! ;)

DEBRA said...

Isis said...

That's quite all right, I remember what my first tea party was like... :) Now sit down there Gracie and enjoy a few of the savouries before you try a little of the catnip jelly with cream!

Isis said...

Oh wow, chocolate cake! Ok, everykitty sit on Mummy before she gets to it! ;)

I just woke up, ..., sorry about that, what kind of tea was that again? It's nice to see so many lady cats, around here. I am so relaxed , no wee ones to poke me, the best napping spots, you'll have to give me the number of your interior decorator.

Normally, I have to sleep with one eye open when Goldie is around. Speaking of which I suppose I should go over and check on him. I want to make sure that furball is not getting in too much trouble.




Oh, I knew it! Isis where is your Mom?

China Cat said...

Hi Isis - Willow and I want to thank you for inviting us to your tea. You are looking absolutely lovely. We can't wait to see your babies! We brought over some nice tuna puffs to share with everyone.

Purrrrrs, China Cat

Willow said...

Oh, Isis, I am so happy to be at your tea party - you really are glowing. My 1st tea party was at Miss Peach's and I'm so looking forward to a nice day with all you girls today!

Since it's almost Valentine's Day China Cat & I also brought over some heart-shaped catnip cookies to go with the tea!

Purrrrrrrs, Willow

We are friends of Miss Peach and are very pleased to make your acquaintance. We are waiting for lambs here on our farm, and will look forward to seeing your babies. (I love kittens and it has been a very long while since I held one) Best wishes. T.

Hello Miss Isis,

I wanted to stop by and have a bit of tea with you all.
Are there any liver sandwiches left???
I am always hungry, and it seems since I've gone blind, that I can taste things much better. I just love to eat!
I was so happy to hear that Prinnie and Miss Peach would be here to help out with us senior gurl cats.
Yum! That is absolutley fantastic!
(a small tiny burp escapes.) Oh please excuse my manners! It's just all so yummy.
