Floki’s Fourth Birthday

Yesterday our little boy turned four and we missed it because I made a stupid mistake. We actually don’t know his exact birthday but I was told that Floki and his brother were left in a carrier at Walmart on Memorial day and they were about six weeks old at the time so I did the math and came up with April 18th. I then had Alexa remind me of that date but for some reason thought Saturday was the 16th and I had made a mistake. It reminds me of the old joke, “I thought I was wrong once but I was mistaken.” This time being wrong about being wrong was a mistake.

I’m four years old? What is that in dog years?

In either case, my wife wanted to celebrate “early” with a cake. I told her it would have to be a tuna cake but she din’t like that idea but she wanted me to pick up some tuna for him as a treat. Since I had to get cat food anyway, I looked for something special and found something called Churu that were squeeze tubes of different flavors of treats. I chose the chicken recipe.

I opened two of the four tubes and squirted it on paper plates for the cats. They all loved it.

Rose decided since it was Floki’s birthday I should open up the other two packages and give that to them too. I did and they gobbled that up as eagerly as the first two. Hopefully, next year I will get the date right.

    I don’t know the exact birthday of my cat either. I also did some funky math. I knew when I got her and that I got her as a 12 weeks old cat. So, that’s how I did the math. 🙂 It’s November 9. But I definitely know she is born in 2007. Time flies.

    Happy birthday, Floki! I’ve never had these treats. My human is not 100% convinced they are good for me… like treats HAVE to be healthy! Geez.

      I totally understand her feeling. I checked the ingredients and it doesn’t seem too bad. The main ingredients are water, Chicken, and tapioca. I don’t have it in front of me but I have seen much worse. I try to feed our cats the healthiest food I can find but occasionally I give in to a tasty treat.

    Yes, happy birthday, Floki~! It looks like the birthday treat went over well, and I must check that out for Andy and Dougy’s birthday, coming up July 1st.

    The upside of forgetting a special day for our cats is they have no idea it’s been missed (!) – the downside is we worry about it and feel guilty. Churu treats are just like the “Lickables” that Teddy adores – same thing and oh boy does he love them! I have to order Churus but Lickables are in our grocery (thankfully). I hope Floki (and the other gang) enjoyed their treats and HAPPY BELATED BIRTHDAY to Floki!

    Hugs, Pam and Teddy too
