I'm a bit late with this post, but better late than never, I suppose. Sophie celebrated her 6th birthday on September 10th, and Devon celebrated his 6th birthday on the 14th. It is hard to believe that we have had them for 6 years!
For Sophie's birthday, we went to the Wild Bird Unlimited store and picked up a bird feeder and some seed for her. She loves to chatter at the birds and watch them throughout the day. This new feeder will bring her pleasure all year. For her birthday dinner, we had steamed asparagus. This is her favorite human food, and she ate several stalks of it! I'll post pictures later...
For Devon's birthday, he also got a new bird feeder and a branch for the pole system. The finches love his feeder and there is always someone out there eating. The cats all love the birds! Devon's big thrill in life, besides laying on the oven, is licking butter from the County Crock tub, so for his birthday dinner, we had baked potatoes. He licked the butter and ate some shredded cheese. He was a happy boy!
Devon and Sophie, along with the other cats all got a new catnip toy as well. They love the felt mice, and will just wash and wash on them until they are soaking wet. Everyone went to bed high that night...pure kitty bliss.
Pictures of the actual birthdays will be posted at a later time.
