Today is Dashiell’s first birthday!
As always, he got his very own cat food cake to celebrate.
At first, the flame didn’t bother him at all.
Until it did.
We blew the candle out, but he still didn’t trust his cake.
Even after we took the candle away completely, he was still afraid to come near his cake. We tried to coax Dash back to it…
Finally, Dash got a whiff of the smell of his cake and came closer.
And he discovered it was tasty and delicious!
I also gave him his birthday present, a mouse made by the Da Bird people. Dash likes realistic mousies, so I thought this was perfect for him.
And, at first it seemed that the mousie was better than his cake…
…almost being the operative word here. Happy birthday, Dashiell!
