Since this week’s Photo Hunt theme is “Six,” I thought I’d feature some photos from my sixth birthday in 2008 (my eighth birthday will be in a few days, on June 24). That was a strange year. My human gave me this weird birthday gift called an “Enchanted Palace.” As you can tell, I was a little confused by it at first!
Seriously, does this look like a cat toy to you?
Even so, I was oddly… enchanted by it.
So imagine my shock when I found out my human wanted to take it away from me! It turned out that she was really going to give it to her boyfriend’s niece, and she was just using it temporarily as a photo op for me! Can you imagine? By the time I discovered this unpleasant bit of news, I had grown attached to the thing and napped by it frequently. In the end, my human didn’t have the heart to take it from me, and she had to go out and buy a second one for the niece.
I still have my Enchanted Palace — you can see it in the background of some of my photos.

You are amazing, Sparkle! You look like a fairytail princess! I believe that someone cast a spell on you and made you a cat. In reality, you are a princess. The question is, how do we break the spel??
Best wishes to your highness from
I’m not playing PH today. Had no time. I would have liked to have shown Cajsa’s six kittens from June 2000, but those pics are not digital!
I wouldn’t have thought it was a cat toy at all. However, it is very pretty and since you like it, I will grant it the ‘toy’ status. How about that?
Your 6th birthday is a great take on the PhotoHunt theme of Six! You look gorgeous with your Enchanted Palace!
Sweet Praline says
You’ve got your human well trained!
That wasn’t very nice of your human to first give it to you than say she was going to take it away but we’re glad she let you keep your enchanted castle! More proof that cats rule!
Eric and Flynn says
We are glad you got to keep your enchanted palace.
Actually it looks like a good cat toy to me. You can pretend you’re a dragon with this castle. My little cousin had a cat named Dragon a long time ago.
Hmmm…an enchanted palace…of course I would expect nothing less for you Sparkle! And I do believe that you have your human very well trained indeed!
I like gifts, too! Lucky kitty!
Just wanted to say thanks for the link to the tuna information. Fuzzy appreciates it and so does his mom.
Alice Audrey says
Sparkle, are you really 10? You don’t look a day over 4 to me.
Katnip Lounge says
Well…it’s only right & proper you got to keep the Palace! It was yours first!
Pip Avery says
Now I want a pink castle …cats get to have all the fun!
Your pal, Pip
Ah, you kitties have us humans trained so well…
You are one pampered cat-person!
The Island Cats says
Well, of course she can’t give you something then try to take it back!! We’re glad she came to her senses and left your palace. Every queen needs a palace!!
Hannah and Lucy says
We’re glad you got to keep your enchanted palace – you have been taking very good care of it we see.
Sniffie and the Florida Furkids says
We got scared when we read that your human bought it for somebuddy else, but we were happy to hear that you got to keep it!!!
Sniffie and the Florida Furkids
Good for you Sparkle to keep the Mom from taking away your Enchanted Palace. It is kind of neat looking. And you look terrific taking a nap right next to it so we are thrilled that you got to keep it. We all have a little kid in us.
Have a great week end.

Toby & Leia says
Clearly, you have taught your hoomin something very impawtant…
Oh what a cruel trick. But we’re glad you got to keep your palace. And you know……EVERYTHING is a cat toy.
