I survived Grumpy Cat’s #Grumpybirthday

#grumpybirthday swag

Last night in New York City, I was one of 125 lucky cat lovers to party with Grumpy Cat at her 2nd birthday bash hosted by Friskies Party Mix. I survived the party and this is the grumpiest I got.

Sorry, it’s hard to get a frown on with an open bar, fab food, sweet swag bags, a DJ, magician, balloon maker, photo booth, and yeah a talented face painter. Then my cat blogger pal Tamar from I Have Cat dared me to my face catified. I had to take a train home to conservative suburbia and thought twice about looking silly but she said she’d blog about it so I said, game on! This what I love about NYC. I walked a few blocks, couldn’t get a cab and ended up taking the subway to Grand Central. A doorman said I looked nice. A few men made meow cat calls but most of people were either as nonplussed as Grumpy Cat or friendly and curious. I ended up having a great convo on the train with two cat lovers I would have normally never have spoken to. So thank-you,Tamar, Friskies and Grumpy Cat.

The birthday girl was adorably cucumber cool as usual and I did a short private interview with her and Bryan and Tabby Bundesen before the party started (subject of another post). Best of all, I got to hold her after the party winded down. So much happened at the party my head is still spinning. For now I leave you with a few pics. Oh and Merlin was right about me coming home smelling of another cat. (see yesterday’s post). Do I look guilty in the last photo? Time for another cat meme?

It’s also time for another blog hop. Plus I’ll be speaking at Blogpaws conference next week!

  1. Sounds like it was a great party! I hope that Grumpy enjoyed it as much as the humans did. She’s a lucky kitty. I love the cat make up πŸ™‚ Totally worth the stares.

  2. Oh my CAT!!!! Layla I so adore you for the face catification and going out in public!!!! That is sooooooooooooooooo something that I would do!
    We are thrilled that the Pawty was so fab! We know that our dear Merlin will forgive as always.
    We hope Blog Paws is a hoot too!

  3. Oh that looks like such fun for the humans. We are sure our Mom would have enjoyed it. And our Daddy seriously loves Grumpy Cat, we are kinda jealous he takes his Grumpy Cat book everywhere with him. We thinks he should take HIS CATS everywhere with him at least in digital form and heck the dogs even volunteer to go in the furs but he prefers Grumpy Cat.

  4. We love your catification (and dream of having seen you like this in the subway !) It looks like a great pawty ! Merlin, it could have been worst, she could have come home with another cat ! Purrs

  5. Wow! Lucky you for getting to attend Grumpy’s party. I’m a dog blogger and I still would have gone to that shindig! So cool!

  6. Oh I love your catified look! I hope Merlin isn’t being grumpy with you smelling like Grumpy Cat πŸ™‚

  8. HOW FUN. I AM SO JEALOUS. IT PAYS TO BE A FAMOUS CAT BLOGGER, AND IT DOESN’T HURT TO LIVE IN NEW YORK CITY, WHERE ALL THE ACTION TAKES PLACE. CAN’T WAIT TO MEET YOU AT BLOG PAWS. LOVED ALL THESE PHOTOS. YOU ARE ADORABLE IN YOUR CAT FACE. XO, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

  9. oh oh, you don’t want a jealous man, especially a jealous siamese guy.

    Miss Grumpy is only 2? She’s such a doll. And it is wonderful when non humans make money for humans.

    Such a great fun time you had!
