We made it! Oliver turns 3 today, despite eating thread, escaping to the wilds of our yard once, eating tape, eating styrofoam, eating whatever isn't normal for cats to eat. Oliver is our dear adopted cat from the Wisconsin Humane Society, and he has finally figured out we are his forever people.
Last year we celebrated with a delicious fudge cake and a #2 candle. This year it is all about Oliver, so his favorite food (he is a cat Vegan) is Brussels sprouts, so I hollowed them out, added candles (his Dad wanted to light them, NOT!) and woke him up from a nap for the photo op.
He looks tired and crusty, not his usual pink-nosed self, but he perked up immediately when the delightful aroma of fresh sprouts wafted about him. Tuna? No way. He loves his veggies and dry cat food and lots and lots of water from any faucet in the house.
What a wonderful cat he is, and how happy he made us, two retirees who were worried we were too old for a cat. He keeps us young and gives us love and fun and joy.
Happy, happy birthday, Oliver.
