Cat birthday invitations: cat's paws beside the Time To Pawty Invitation card

Hey, cool cats! If you want to go all out on your birthday — or your cat’s birthday — then a theme party would be the cat’s pajamas. (And now that we think of it, a “cat’s pajamas” theme would be purrfect for a slumber party.)

Cats should be every birthday girl and boy’s inspiration. After all, cats do what they want all day, every day. If that’s not birthday energy, then we don’t know what is. So for your special day, embrace your inner feline with a fierce party theme.

A cat birthday party theme has so much paw-tential. You can fill your space with kitty cat party decorations, serve up some sushi (what else would a cat eat?!), and wear cat ears instead of party hats. But before you get your claws into all the party details, the best place to start is with your birthday party invitations.

Your invitation cards are your guests’ first introduction to your birthday party. Make a big Maine Coon-sized impression by sending out invitations that are the cat’s meow. We’ll help you choose the purrfect cat birthday invitations for your party, plus we’ll share some of our favorite messages to get the party started.

8 Cat Birthday Invitations to Announce Your Pawty

Felines are notoriously fussy, so we haven’t rounded up just any old cat birthday party invitations. We couldn’t handle the sass if all the cats and kittens out there thought they were getting anything but the best. So we’re only showing you cards that are digital invitations, which you can customize to your cat’s content.

You can adjust the colors, change the wording, and even add music that plays with an instant download when your guests open their invites. We’re picturing “Stray Cat Strut” or “Everybody Wants to Be a Cat” blasting alongside your birthday cards.

Here are eight completely customizable cat birthday invitations.

1. Time to Pawty Invitations

2. Pawty Paw Prints Invitations

3. Otomi Inspired Invitations

We love the crafty cat hidden among the birds on this colorful kitty invite. While this invitation may originally be from the Cinco de Mayo cat-egory, you can change the text to read “kitty cat birthday party” or “feline fiesta,” then send it out as a cute kitten birthday invitation.

4. Get Wild Invitations

This bengal-inspired invitation was originally designed for a baby shower. But with a quick update to the text, you can transform it into the ideal invite for your cat birthday celebration.

5. Our New Addition Announcements

8. Photo Birthday Invitations

Wild Cheetah Invitation

Design: Loree Mayer Design

If you have your own precious pet, then they would look paw-sitively adorable on your birthday party invitations.

Cat’s Got Your Invite

Once you get your cat birthday invitations picked and sent out, you can go back to focusing on other things, like making the cutest cat birthday cake or choosing the purrfect party supplies. By far the fastest way to send out your birthday invites is with online invitations.

Online invitations allow you to personalize your cat birthday cards with your own photo, message, or color scheme. You can add all your party details, upload your guests’ email addresses, and send invites to their inboxes in a matter of minutes.

You can also track your RSVPs online and send out reminders to any guests who haven’t responded. That way, you won’t have to play an elaborate game of cat and mouse just to find out who’s coming to your party.

Plus, unlike paper and printable invitations, digital invitations won’t end up littering our landfills — because the only litter we like are litters of kittens. And we’re not kitten around when we say that we hope you have a very happy birthday!
