Happy Earth Day!

I'm thrashing on my Gizzy with joy, because my humans are back home after leaving me for three days! (Well, to be fair, they arranged for my buddy Jim to be our slave while they were gone.)

I didn't get too mad because they went to my Grandpa Bob and Grandma Vivian's 23rd Wedding Anniversary Surprise Party! Yes, tomorrow my two human artists' dad and stepmom will have been married more than half a century!

More than 150 family members gathered in the ballroom waiting to shout "Surprise! Happy Anniversary!!" when Grandma & Grandpa came in ....They were definitely suprised! Here they are with my humans' half-sister Vickie ... which I don't understand because she's always looked like a whole sister to me ....
Here are my human artists Sharolyn & Suzanne with their dad, my Grandpa Bob. They're the oldest of his nine children! He was an only child, and says he vowed to make sure none of his children would ever be lonely. I'd say he was pretty successful ... even more so because he raised a family of cat lovers - everybody wore cat furs to the surprise party! And I'd say this is an appropriate Earth Day post, since Grandpa Bob did his part to populate the Earth with cat lovers! ...
There was cake and food and a beautiful photo collage and a scrapbook of their lives together ....
And dancing ... here's Grandma & Grandpa kicking it off with an honorary first dance to the song "Stand By Me". Hey, my Grandpa still knows how to 'cut a rug'! ....
I wish I'd been there - I know a few things to do to rugs, too! Hey, everybody, if you'd like to wish my Grandpa Bob & Grandma Vivian a Happy Anniversary, you can leave a comment and I'll make sure they read them!

Also, I'd like to ask everyone to sign the petition urging the city of Brazil to leave the Rothrock cat rescue alone and let them do their important work. My mom will be attending the city hall meeting Thursday with the Rothrocks.

P.S. We're still having aftershocks - a 4.5 one yesterday morning. I think the Earth is trying to shake some sense into its humans around Earth Day!

Congratulations! 50 years. That's wonderful. From the photos, we can see they had a great time at the party. And we felines can't thank them enough for helping populate the earth with cat lovers. You were all well-dressed and wearing cat fur the proper way for a human --- shed from a live cat!

Happy Anniversary to your Grandpa Bob and Grandma Vivian!! That's amazing! Our Nana & Grampy have been married that long, too. Although they didn't raise a bunch of cat lovers, only 1 of our Auntie's and Mom have cats, out of 8 kids. We'll have to ask them why thiat is...
