Whose birthday could it be..?

Why, it’s Jacoby’s, of course!

Unsurprisingly, Jake was eager to eat his delicious cat food cake.

The cheerfully burning candle did not deter him in the slightest.

I guess after five birthdays, he’s become an expert at eating around the candle.

Jake didn’t even get one curly whisker!

After cake, it was time for his present – a Whack-a-Mouse game!

Jake was so excited…

…he knocked it off the cat tree!

Oops!

I guess this is more of an on-the-floor game.

Every time you give a cat – even an Aby – a new toy, there’s that moment of truth…will kitty play with it?

Well, I needn’t have worried.

It was such a hit that Angel had to check it out, too!

Jake and Angel actually played with it together for a little while.

Without any hissing! I wonder if that was Angel’s birthday present to Jake?

Happy 5th Birthday, Jacoby!

Today is a very big day…Jacoby is 5 years old!

So, here are some Somali kittens to sing him a birthday song!
