Cat-themed parties: Sometimes they celebrate adoptions or birthdays, sometimes they’re workplace gatherings that include whiskers and ears as props, other times they’re a chance for friends to make cocktails named after kitties and watch That Darn Cat. (Again.) We asked Catster readers to tell us what kinds of cat-themed parties they’ve thrown. Some of the replies (and illustrative photos) are below.

I have thrown two cat showers — one for my co-worker, Lisa, and one for my daughter, Caroline.

Look at the table cloth — love it!

I wanted to do something special to congratulate both of them on their new kittens. Caroline and Lisa loved the kitty-themed gifts and were very surprised by the showers.

Everyone who attended had a fun time.

We threw a cat-themed one-year-adoption-day party for our cat Jadzia. All of her feline siblings attended, and my fiancé and I both wore cat ears to fit in.


The cats loved playing with the balloons! To celebrate, Jadzia got her own four-course meal, and the humans ate a feline-inspired fish dinner.
