Since I picked up Scout in the street when he was just a little guy, I have no idea when he was actually born. The vet gave an estimate. While I think that it’s a few weeks off the mark, we ran with it this weekend and had a little first birthday party for Scout.
He had tuna. The humans had cake. He received more gifts than a lot of children. And like most kids, he was more interested in the packaging than the actual toys!
And like most kids, he turns a bit wild when his grandparents come to visit. He was practically swinging from the chandeliers by the time they left.
I made him a little party hat but he was pretty determined to not wear it. Poor little cat didn’t want to put on a silly party hat for pictures! In fact, he’s probably still traumatized from the Christmas hat.
It may sound silly celebrating a cat’s birthday but I believe that one key to happiness is appreciating the small things.
It may be a small thing but Scout is kind of a big deal in my life. It’s the least I can do to wish this sweet little cat a Happy Birthday!
