Do you celebrate your pet's birthday?

First of all, I should mention, I only have one cat, and I've only had her since early this year, and she is my first cat. I feel the need to point this out, because I feel like my question kind of paints a picture of some crazy lady living in total isolation with a house full of cats that she thinks are people. But anyway, I decided my cat should have some special treats for her birthday. I don't know exactly when my cat's birthday is, but her vet records say it is in October, so I decided Halloween would be as good a day as any to celebrate it. Before leaving for work, I just gave her some regular treats with her food, which I do sometimes anyway if I know I'm going to be gone all day. When I got home, I gave her some special treats that she only gets rarely, as they're on the expensive side, but she loves them. I had bought a few little toys on sale awhile ago, planning to give them to her here and there, but decided to throw them into a birthday gift bag to give to her. She rarely plays with toys, but she actually liked most of the ones she got today. After a few rounds with the toys and her tasty treats, she fell asleep. Doesn't sound like a bad birthday to me. I don't think that sounds too crazy, it's not like I threw a party or anything. :) (OK...I did sing "Happy Birthday" to her.) Do you celebrate your pet's birthday?

That's a great idea, I almost decided to pick my birthday as my cat's birthday as well, since my birthday is in early November and hers I knew was sometime in October (supposedly...that may just have been a guess as she was already a couple of years old when she went to live with her previous owner). But somehow I just decided to go with Halloween. :)

@fluffysue Oh, should have mentioned Molly is a dog. Forgot to do that. Yes, like most dogs, a ride in the car is a joy for Molly. Now, my sister has 4 cats, and car rides are not liked by them. My husband is holding Molly, as a puppy, in the photo.
