A note about The Cuddlywumps Chronicles

This blog is written and maintained by Miss Cuddlywumps, a fluffy-tailed calico cat who is both classically educated and familiar with mysteries. She receives creative input from the Real Cats and clerical assistance from She of Little Talent (old SoLT, a.k.a. Roby Sweet). Comments or complaints should be addressed to Miss C rather than to old SoLt (Ms. Sweet). Ms. Sweet accepts no responsibility for Miss C's opinions.

It's Old SoLT's Birthday! Plus Friendly Fill-Ins

We are taking sort of a break today to let old SoLT relax and enjoy her birthday. She hits the big 4-9 today, and that number is making her feel tired (just wait till next year!). We didn't get her anything, because she already has us, so what more could she possibly want? We did bake her this cake though:
It's old SoLT's birthday, so Miss C and the Real Cats created this great cake. Happy birthday!

Friendly Fill-Ins
And we told her we'd take care of Friendly Fill-Ins. So here goes. Paisley answered the first two questions, which are from Ellen of 15andmeowing, and Webster answered the next two, from Annie of McGuffy’s Reader.

Paisley's answers:

1. I can't wait to see anyone open my gift to him/her. Since I didn't actually get anything for anyone, it will be interesting if they find something from me!

2. I have had the same family for 12 years. It is a pretty nice family, except for the dog, who I wish would move next door or something.

Webster's answers:

3. I would not mind if Santa were to bring me a whole big box of treats. I really like treats!

4. On Christmas Eve, I always keep track of Santa through the NORAD Santa Tracker. That helps me know when I should go to bed.


  1. "She hits the big 4-9 today"

    Happy birthday you rotten kid.

  2. Happy, Happy Birthday to Old SoLT!! Now we know why you call her old - LOL!! Just kidding, because she's still a spring chicken compared to some of us!

  3. Happy Birthday, Roby! Yes, you kitties are the bestest present anyone could ever have...well, except for the cats at Eastside Cats!

  4. Happy Happy Birthday Roby! Shit, you are still a baby! Try being 62 like me!! Have a most wonderful day!!!! xoxo catchatwithcarenandcody

  5. Happy Birthday to young SALT! Being that I will be that age next July, I am not calling her Old. Thank you both for participating, great answers. Good idea to track Santa. :) Have a wonderful Christmas and a happy, healthy New Year! XO

  6. Happy birthday!!! Hope your precious babies gave you lots of extra cuddles :)

  7. I must sing Old SOLT the song!!!

    Mommy says I should give you the wishes in English...
    Birthday birthday, happy birthday

    PS loved your answers to the Friday Fillins!

  8. Happy Birthday to your Mom! We hope it's every bit as wonderful as she is! I had no idea the NORAD tracker was still a thing. Ellie and Bear agree with you, Webster ... a cat can never have too many treats!

  9. HAPPY BIRTHDAY! We wish you all the things that you wish for yourself!
