Based on when we rescued Miss B and Mr. C and how old they were when we took them to the vet for the first time, we estimated their birthday somewhere near the middle of March. So, today, we celebrated their first birthday- although we may call their birthday March 17th instead. Somehow, the Ides of March seems a little odd for a birthday. Anyway, a birthday celebration seemed in order for today. It has been super wet outside for a really long time now and without the yard to run in, we were all getting pretty bored.
So, what do you do when you want to celebrate a birthday but you can't play outside? First, we gave all of the puppies a bath, and then we made coconut bread. The puppies love coconut, so they were very glad to help lick the spoon when it was time to add the cream of coconut. They were also very glad to help eat half of a loaf of coconut bread, I mean, taste the coconut bread. We didn't do a very good job of planning ahead, so we didn't have any birthday hats. Instead, we put pirate bandannas on the birthday boy and girl.
What did the cats think about all of the birthday celebrations, you ask? They did what any self respecting cat would do... they took the opportunity to sneak into our bedroom and take a nap on our bed.
