I like celebrating my pets' birthdays, even if they don't really know that it's their birthday. For example, in high school, my best friend Anne and I put party hats on our horses and gave him a special bran mash to celebrate my horse's 16th birthday. Speaking of my horse, Pal, he has a special connection to Woods even though they did not walk the earth at the same time. The date we found Woods would have been Pal's 23rd birthday.

I always imagined Pal would be a part of my wedding day and he was. A lock of his tail hair, saved from when he passed away, was sewn into the hem of my dress. It also served as my something blue.
But enough about Pal. This post is supposed to be about Woods after all. Woods doesn't normally get wet cat food, so he was in heaven eating his cake on his "birthday." He didn't share with us, which was really quite all right!
Do you celebrate your pets' birthdays? If so, how do you celebrate? A special toy? Treat? Cake? Woods and I are dying to know!
