Aby-a-Day – April 14: Happy Birthday, Jacoby!

Today is Jacoby’s 4th birthday!

The day started out with the cutest birthday e-card from Sherry and his brother Dillin and a special, non-prescription UT diet, breakfast. They don’t make bacon-flavoured cat food yet, but I did find him pork cat food, which seems to be a pretty uncommom cat food flavour. I think he really appreciated the change.

He got two great presents.

One was a new, leopard-print SturdiShelter I found on eBay for a song – only $169! And that included not only the house, but a hammock and a matching leopard-print show table skirt.

There was also a bucket-style carrier.

Jake really liked the carrier for some reason.

IF these were still available on the SturdiProducts website (the leopard-print shelters and skirts are sold out, so you can’t buy them new at all), they’d be around $300 so it was quite a bargain.

Jake was all over his new house.

I also got him a fleece photo blanket from Shutterfly.

Camera ham that he is, he approved of his new blankie.

After the presents, it was time for can-cake!

I found an awesome new flavour at the store: Wellness Core Beef, Venison and Lamb.

Jake was eating it even before the candle was blown out!
