The news is pretty awful recently. So Steven and I decided
to uphold an old tradition, and celebrate the cats' birthdays.
Both cats were born early in October. They don't really get
cake, but that looks cute in the photos.

We couldn't find the delicious small chocolate cakes we
usually get, but we did find small cakes, and took the shots.
Fiona turned 16, and Monet turned 2.  Sally the dog, who
will be 11 next month, loves "singing" Happy Birthday, and
she did.

Of course they didn't eat cake.  All three had roast chicken, and
were extremely happy about that treat.  

Have a loving your life day.

Thank you so much Evelyn!

They have been having a snack of turkey all week, so they think the festivities have continued.
