Welcome to Chica's 21st Birthday Partay!!!!



Today, Sunday June 24,  is the day..my 21st birthday!!!   Mom asked Ann of Zoolatry to make her a graphic for my 21st birthday - I love it!  Thanks Ann.

Thanks to each and every one of you for joining us this week to celebrate me and making it so special.  It was fun sharing memories of my long life with you and in turn learning more about you too.  I have had an amazing life - from being found at a Florida strip mall to moving to North Carolina and getting used to sooo many new brothers and sisters.  We have moved 6 times in my life but as  long as Mom and Pop were there - I was home.

Since the theme for this party is 21 - Mom found some info online about why the 21st birthday is so important....

Some say it’s significance originated from knighthood rituals of long ago. A boy began to learn about becoming a knight at the age of seven when he was taken on as a page. He graduated from page to squire at fourteen and became a knight’s assistant, caring for his equipment and training with him until at the age of 21 he would become a Knight.

In Elizabethan times 21 was the age of consent for a man to marry.

In the US today, 21 is the age that you can purchase alcohol.

The symbol of the 21st Birthday has traditionally been the key. It is believed that the meaning of the key is that the birthday boy or girl is now a senior member of the household and given a key to the house. 21st birthday gifts, invitations, decorations and cakes are often fashioned around the design of a key.  (my21stbirthdayideas.com)

Mom asked me to choose a song that best describes my life and I chose My Way by none other than Frank Sinatra (heeheehee) Of course Mom could not get the embedd to work on the laptop but you all knowe the song and singer!

 I appreciate your friendship and hope to be around for some time to come! Help yourself to the salmon, shrimps and ham, niptinis (of course) and assorted toys, and even a jungle gym!  Mom got me two cakes for the party - one to celebrate that now I can legally drink and the other is key cake -  "You got the key to the door, never been 21 before"! Let's PARATY!!!




















Our good friends Derry of Fuzzy Tales and Sparkle  also are celebrating their birthdays that day too. Wendy's LOL spot features me - so check that out! Make the rounds and be prepared to party yntil the sun comes up!

P.S. Mom did all the posts this week on a tiny borrowed mini laptop!  Very frustrating as she could not access her photos, put on any new ones...She says she can't see straight anymore either!!!  I don't believe her but I know she loves me lots for doing this and caring for me all these years!

This certainly is a very special day and you deserve all the attention and accolades you can get, Chica!

Happiest of birthdays Chica Dear. We are doing our best to purr Happy Birthday to you in tune, but Scylla keeps purring off key and Fenris is wooing instead of purring and Mom well Mom is humming but we sure hope you will enjoy the song. It is the thought that counts right. ~Socks & Family
