Daily Prompt: RSVP “Plan the ultimate celebration for the person you’re closest to, and tell us about it. Where is it? Who’s there? What’s served? What happens?

Our beautiful cat Cece (whom I’m allergic to) finally sat still for me yesterday with the camera out. Usually she turns and hides her face from me as soon as she sees me pick up the camera! She let me capture quite a few photos of her before she was bored and walked away.
