Do You Celebrate Your Pets Birthday?
August 6, 2017 12:22pm CST
When I saw this image on Pixabay my first thought was, this looks like my little Nina on her last birthday with us. Unfortunately, she passed away about a year and a half ago.. Anyway, my second thought was, I wonder how many people here on MyLot celebrate their fur baby's birthday. We have celebrated all of our fur babies birthdays from the time they came home with us. If we weren't sure when their birthday was we gave them one. We would bake a big doggy biscuit for them and their friends and give the birthday dog a gift. Some people may think that this is a silly thing to do but the way we thought about it is this, They are a part of the family and they deserve a celebration.

My pup and the kitties love when I get in the mood to cook as I always make something for them as well @HazySue well, almost always, I won't feed them spaghetti or other veggie dishes but when I make chicken, beef or eggs they always get some.

How sweet your little Nina must've been! I don't know what my daughter will do with her parakeets next year "around" their first birthday - not sure exactly when it is . Our friend is having a first birthday party for her dog in September - with a bunch of guests, a big deal party!! But the actual birthday was earlier in July . . . I saw on Facebook she got her doggie a bunch of wrapped gifts and even a doggie birthday cake (not really cake, but apparently someone makes these doggie desserts in their area).
I understand what you are saying when there are those that think it is stupid to celebrate an animal's birthday. I beg to defer. The animal is our pet and either our family or part of our family. People celebrate their children's birthdays why not celebrate your furry one's birthday. I remember when I had my dog and celebrated her 5th birthday and had a little party with a friend and her and I think my cat was with us then. She was not allowed on the couch, but, on that day I let her go on the couch and she just looked at me and thought I was crazy and what was I doing giving her mixed messages. I can see her thinking that. This year my Sophie turned 3 and wrote a post on facebook and I think here too and we just celebrate quietly. I give her her presents. I bought her a string with a mouse and she loves it and we play with it or she plays with it alone.
