Aby-a-Day – 4 February: Happy first birthday, Alfred!

Today is Alfred’s first birthday!


I made him a special cat food cake with a sparkly #1 candle.


I like using Poesie Venison and Cranberry in jelly because, hey, it’s venison! And also the little heart shaped solid lumps of cat food make really cute little cakes.


In winter, we use our balcony as an extended refrigerator. So I put the cake out there. And I shut the door. But somehow…when I went to show it to Björn, all I found was an empty plate! I have no idea how they got the door opened or who ate Freddy’s cake!


Luckily, because Logan’s birthday is next month and then Jacoby’s is in April, so I had some backup Poesie hearts, so he will still get a cake. Or a second cake. I really don’t know. But I wish I could find the sparkly #1 candle. I hope whoever ate the cake didn’t eat the candle, too!


Freddy still got his cake, though.


Once the candle was blown out, Freddy was all over his cake.


For his birthday, Freddy got a brand new beefy chew stick.


Jake was curious about it.


I guess it looked like a tasty snack.


“That’s it? You just chew on it? I don’t get it…Kids these days!*

  1. Happy Birthday, Freddy! Hope that you enjoyed that pretty cake!

    Is there any possibility the 1st cake was taken by someone from outside, like a visiting squirrel or neighbor cat? That candle looks pretty big for an Aby, or Singa, to eat, so maybe it was dragged off somewhere for chewing? Sure is odd –

      Mystery solved! In the interest of keeping everyone’s meals in their stomachs, I haven’t shown the actual barf on the actual comforter…but in the interest of scientific documentation, here is the partially chewed and digested cake and sparkly candles, offered as proof that JAKE ATE THE DAMN CANDLE!


  2. Aha! I read further posts above and see that the culprit was none other than JAKE! Baaaaad boy, Jake! Serves you right to barf! Now leave those candles alone (especially the burning ones)!


      1. Coco, maybe Jake is part dog and, in particular, beagle or lab. Beagles and labs are notorious for eating EVERYTHING! Ha!


  3. Happy Birthday Freddy! Really dumb move, Jake. While Abys are the most food-obsessed cats I’ve ever seen, eating a candle is … not cat-like. I think he was channeling his inner dog.
