Happy Birthday to the CATS!

Happy Birthday to…the cats!

I can hardly believe it’s been 6 years since my two goofy cats were born! I adopted them at about 4 weeks in September of 2008, so this is their birthday week. I happily adopted them from the Humane Society of Huron Valley. It was “Buy one get one free” for the cats that week, which is why I have two cats instead of one! Now you know!

It is a special day when your companions turn 6. I, of course, had to make the little guys some birthday cake. Unfortunately it is work getting them to eat much other than cat food (Ferdinand will eat nothing but), so they didn’t do much more than lick the frosting.

Birthday BoyLeo is investigating the tiny cake.

He seems to like the frosting but doesn’t like the sprinkles.

While I never would have thought of myself as a “Cat Person” 6.5-7 years ago, I am a happy Cat Mom now. My cats are a wonderful source of inspiration and entertainment, and they always make me smile. I wouldn’t have it any other way, unless there was a way to not ALWAYS be covered in cat hair.

Birthday BoyFerdinand is terrified.

Perhaps of the tiny cake? Perhaps of aging?

While I go and give my cats a little extra cat food and some new toys, I hope you give your companion animals (and/or people) a good hug! Or perhaps a “tooth” like Leo loves to give me.
