Before Cat World Domination Day, my birthdays were fun but way more ordinary. Take my seventh birthday in 2009, for example. My human just showed up with two presents. No cake and not even any treats!
Of course some things have always been the same.
The smaller present was Da Bird — my very first one ever! Which is kind of criminal, considering that I was seven.
But I started making up for lost time immediately.
The larger present was supposed to be a Kitty Pirate Ship, but it just looked like a big messy pile of plastic.
When I saw the instructions I did not hold out much hope.
But much to my surprise, my human actually put it together without messing it up or ruining it!
It was actually a pretty cool birthday, even without all the fancy stuff. And we still have the Kitty Pirate Ship — you can see it in the background of a lot of photographs! Boodie uses it most, even though she talks more like a space alien than a pirate.
You can see the original blog post for all of June 2009 here.

I got my first Da Bird when I was 2 years old 🙂
Your Pirate Ship is really cool !
You know what ?! My dad sayÂ´s I donÂ´t need any Pirate Ship at all !!
Will se about that , right mom
You got Da Bird when you were 7? I am 13 and still waiting! Every time mum goes to America she says she will bring one back for me. She never does.
The pirate ship looks like a baby’s pram â€¦ a bit!! Anyway you get fun presents!!
Speedy Rabbit says
you have the greatest presents even back then,xx Speedy

We love the pirate ship!
Maxwell, Faraday & Allie says
We boyz think that’s because Boodie realizes that it was really a SteamPunk Cyber Spaceship instead of a pirate ship, and she was just ahead of her time talking space alien stuff. At least that’s our story and we’re sticking with it! (And the answer to Life is 42!)
Cathy Keisha says
Whoa, what a a great birthday! Your human even wraps your presents! Mine say it’s a waste of time and money. Money that cna be spent on one more gift.

Mark's Mews says
Well those were both great prezzies, but we agree that birfdays have been getting fancier lately.
Katnip Lounge says
Your current celebrations are WAY funner, Sparkle!!
And we fully & unconditionally blame Mommy for not wishing you a timely “Happy Birthday”! She had the usual “reasons”. Lame.

Thanks to Cat World Domination Day, I think all of us felines in the future will be demanding lots of presents and yummy food on our b’days as well! Meow and Namaste! ~ Pippy
P.S. You look stunning in your pirate ship Sparkle!
Kitties Blue says
Sparkle, that looks as if that was a pretty catastic birthday. Just think of all the kitties who don’t have pawrents to give them such wonderful gifts. We’ll have to start looking more closely in photos to see if we can spot your pirate ship. Purrs and hugs, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

Toby & Leia says
Oh, we like that pirate ship. Pretty pawsome.
That is a very cool pirate ship Sparkle!!!
That’s a pretty good birthday celebration if you ask us, Sparkle. We love that pirate ship, and Da Bird is the DA BEST!
Glogirly & Katie says
You were SEVEN before your human gave you DaBird???
I think you ought to stick HER in that pirate ship.
; ) Katie
I have the same pirate ship. It’s so pawsome! I take it to #lakewithpetie every summer to sail on his lake.
WOW – that was a grand birthday. Love the Pirate Ship!
Hannah and Lucy says
We never get anything as exciting as a pirate ship on our birthdays. Have a great weekend.
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

Those are some fantastic toys! How could you not have Da Bird until you were seven? That’s borderline neglect. We used to have a pirate ship, too. There are pictures of it in our blog posts a couple years ago. But we destroyed it one too many times, and it eventually wouldn’t go back together. The head peep says the boys are hard on our toys.
That pirate ship is pretty darn cute. But Da Bird is the best. We love ours. That looked like a great birthday. Hope all of you have a good week end.
The Kitties of Purring Pines says
Wow! You have the best birthdays!!! Happy Caturday!

Mr Puddy says
