Happy Birthday To Us!

Well, it was a big day yesterday - millions of people had been anticipating it for months. There were street parties across the country, 24 hour TV coverage with news anchors arriving from networks all over the world. Yes, it was our Official Birthday! (We are keeping our real birthdays a closely guarded secret). Lila was turning 3, and I was turning 2. I'm a big girl now! Perhaps Rachel and Pete will stop calling me Baby Cat now I'm a whole two years old?

We did think we might have a big day of celebrations with a constant stream of guests, a ton of presents, and maybe a tiered cake, but it was fairly low-key and in fact the humans' attention appeared to be somewhere else, humph.

We did get some really delicious special food though, which Rachel let us eat straight out of the can as a treat (well, Lila claims she was just too tired to wash up our bowls, but I don't believe that).  One of the tins had whole tiger prawns in, mmm! We had some party hats too, but to be honest we weren't that fussed about that. Here's a photo of me looking unimpressed.


But at least I wore it, Lila refused to have it on her head and pretty much set about eating it. However the birthday did start looking up as Rachel presented us with our presents: collars with our names on! Lila's was really bright, lime green to go with her black fur. Her she is wearing it while having a wash. We were getting ready for a Girls Night Out! But the catflap locked at dusk as usual, so it ended up as a Night On The (Bathroom) Tiles. Boo.


My collar was purple which is my new favourite colour. I thought there might be a spare prawn in the top of the birthday hat...


We do like our new collars. Rachel also made some for our cat friends Oz and Mollie - theirs were blue and pink.


If you like our special collars, you can have one of your own (with your name on, of course...)! If you'd like one, you need to let Rachel know by Monday (May 2nd) at the latest, as she'll be ordering the fabric that evening (British time!). You'll have to wait a couple of weeks to get your paws on them, as the fabric comes from America, but it'll be worth it, I promise!! For more information including cost see here on the Mog's Togs Facebook page and you can email Rachel at

PS We didn't get a birthday gift from you - not even a card! Sniff, sniff. Well, go put it in the diary for next year then, go on!
