If you think that celebrating a pet's birthday is over the top, look away! Because I celebrate it every year! You probably think I'm some crazy cat lady by now, but I assure you nothing went too far. There's nothing wrong with buying a cake to celebrate, some toys for the birthday-cat, and giving him some extra love and attention on the day we got him 8 years ago :)
His name is Kizzy and he's an European short haired cat. He sleeps 20 hours a day and only gets up to ask for attention or food, but I love him very dearly. He has a gorgeous coat of fur and is super soft. He loves it when you pet or comb him, but never try to pick him up! He and his adopted brother don't get along very well, but he always stays kind (unike his evil brother-cat).
I bought a meringue-topped cherry pie from my favorite bakery here in Maastricht. So delicious!
Tell me, would/do you celebrate your pet's birthday? :)
