Birthday Treats

Last week it was my gorgeous little Urchin's first birthday. We have retained just enough sanity NOT to have a party for her, but we did get her a present and gave her a special birthday tea.

She adores sweet creamy things (takes after me, clearly). We don't let her have very much, because a cat who has drunk the milk at the bottom of the Rice Krispy bowl is a very strange animal, but we thought just a little taste would be nice for her.

As it happened, we had some clotted cream in the fridge from a not-very-successful scone making episode, so I made her a little clotted cream quenelle. She knows that treats come on white china saucers (normally she eats straight off the newspaper) so as soon as she saw it come out of the kitchen she bushed up her tail and ran ahead of me to her eating spot.

The cream was considered acceptable.

Her birthday present - a hammock that sits over the radiator - was also found to be quite comfortable. Just wait until we actually have the central heating on!

HH - it'd be nice if they made them for people, wouldn't it?!

Girli - she is a bit, isn't she? It's nice having a happy catbeast.

Happy birthday to Ms Foodycat's kitty. She looks truly content.

Oh, great, now my cats want clotted cream and a new cat tree perched over a warm spot ;-). Pickles drank from a can of coconut cream a few weeks ago so that must be his Burmese origins coming out.

Happy birthday, gorgeous Urchin!

Kat - every home should have one!

Teresa - thank you!

Cranky - you can tell your beasts that it's the benefit of being an only child.

Those cat hammocks are the biz. I'm not making your creamy treats for 3 of them though.

Oooh, what an indulgent birthday treat! Happy B-day, Urchin!

Leslie said...

Happy Birthday oh fluffy one!!

Foodycat said...

Jude - she wouldn't have got it if there weren't leftovers! Better her than me eating clotted cream by the spoonful.

Su-Lin - thanks!

Leslie - thank you! She has decided birthdays are quite good.

Happy Birthday to Urchin from Max. (I think he wants a hammock now). ;-)

Foodycat said...

Pips - yes, she is a very pretty little cat. And she does love treats!

Deb - well you know what to get him for Christmas! (do you have radiators in Hawaii?)
