Theme Party Thursday: Kitty Cat Party

Invites: You could use a Paw shaped card, or check your local paper store for cat die cuts, etc.

Join us as we PAWS to celebrate (name)'s birthday
with the PURR-Fect Feline Frenzy.
It's sure to be the Cat's Meow!
Regrets Only, (ph #)

If you want them to dress like a cat, then add that at the bottom.

Games/Activities: (choose about 3-4)
How many cat treats? Guess how many cat treats are in the jar.

Pet Parade - Set up a "Cat-Walk" and invite each guest to come dressed like a furry feline for the "Pet Parade". Play the theme song from Josie and the Pussycats while each guest models their attire.

Curious Cat Hunt - a treasure hunt.

Alley Cat Dance Check your local library or online for a recording of the song "Alley Cat" and teach the Alley Cat dance

Cat, Cat, Dog played like "duck, Duck, Goose".

Pin the Tail on the Cat like "pin the tail on the donkey"

Fishing Kitty Since Cats are always famous for putting their paws in the fish bowl, fashion a fishing rod with a dowel and string. On the end of the string attach a magnet. Then make several paper fish and attach paper clips to each one. On each paper fish assign a number that corresponds with a prize. Then, each guest takes a turn fishing. The paper fish can be placed in a little blow-up pool or empty fish aquarium with colored stones, if desired.

Poor Kitty! Arrange the group in a circle with a blindfolded player in the center. Then have the players move around the circle very quietly. The blindfolded player should approach the circle in any direction and secure a victim who, in a disguised voice, says 'poor kitty' and then imitates the 'meow' of a cat. If the blindfolded player fails to identify his prisoner, he releases him and the game continues. If he succeeds, the two change places.

Catch the Kitty! Use large rings from a ring toss game, and several stuffed kitty cats. Place the stuffed cats in single file. Have each guest try to Catch the kitty by tossing the rings. The further away the kitty, the bigger the prize.

Food: Tuna Salad Sandwiches (cut into quarters), Goldfish grackers, Sliced Cheese, and Milk. Oh - Don't forget to serve "kitty litterbox" cake. Basically a chocolate cake with chocolate frosting. Then spread a layer of granola over the frosting. And strategically place unwrapped Tootsie Rolls in the "kitty litter".

Party Favors: Check out Oriental Trading Company for cat favors and crafts. Or get some stuffed cats from the dollar store. There are tons of kitty toys out there.

Pretty fun. Hey I was trying to find your water fun party plan but it's not there anymore. Do you remember what all you had in it?

I'm with susie, I think any kitty decor would have me in an allergic mess (psychological allergy is real too) ;)
