How Cats Celebrate Birthdays 1. Rise at first light. Sit on owners face until they wake up. 2. Loudly demand birthday breakfast be served. 3. Shun two kinds of cat food. Shun owner, then grudgingly eat organic tuna. 4. Visit magic box. Find conditions unacceptable. 5. Enjoy private time behind sofa. 6. Enjoy watching owner clean magic box and area behind sofa. 7. Practice the ol yoga stretches. 8. Hork hairball into secret hiding place. 9. Stare at wall. Pretend to see something owner cannot. 10. Sleep for 18 hours. Start all over again. Hope your birthday is just as much fun!
