Today is Izaak’s birthday! He turns one year old today.
Not only that, but we are at a cat show in Örebro. So this is a very special birthday – the first one of any of our cats that we have celebrated away from home.
Before he could have his little birthday cake, Zak had to go up and be judged.
Today we had a judge we’d not seen before. He was from Romania.
He really seemed to like Zak quite a lot.
But in the end, he wasn’t Nominated. Neither he nor Lorelai were today.
In a way, though, Zak got something even better: he earned his third CAC certificate today, which means he is now a Champion!
So Zak celebrated two milestones today.
He looked a little unimpressed by his candle and cake.
Since Zak usually rejects anything that isn’t raw food, I wasn’t sure if he would even eat his cake.
And, at first, it did seem that Rory was more interested in it than he was! Back off, Rory…you’ll get yours in two weeks.
At first, Rory was the only one eating Zak’s cake.
Zak watched her eat it for a while.
Eventually, he took a bit more interest.
Finally, he decided to give it a taste.
At last, he tucked in alongside Rory. I was so happy that he actually seemed to be enjoying his cake.
…and I was right!
I couldn’t really capture him playing with it with my still camera.
So I made a little video of him playing with it (Click on the image to watch the movie in another tab).
