FRIDAY 13th May: Three Today - Happy Birthday Cato!

Tara:

Mum says I can tell you MY SECRET now, cos it isn't a secret any more!  It is Cato's Birthday!  And we are going out to meet Dad later, for sausages 

(Mum: actually for lunch, but there will be sausages, yes)

- and we will go for a walk.  It was going to be a beach walk in the salt marshes, but the tide is in. :( so we have to go somewhere else. :) maybe the big lake.  we get to decide when we eat the sausages!!!

And Mum said that I get to have some of Cato's chicken, later if I am good ALL DAY.  So I am trying really really hard.  And she also said that my present to Cato is to have this pic up, cos she says that showing the world my Bed Head will make you all laugh at me, and after the karate incident he needs some revenge.  Don't understand any of that, but look how much my hair has grown!!!

Cato is going to come and write a bit of blog later, but he is asleep at the moment.  He doesn't seem very excited, but then, he didn't see the chicken arrive!

Cato:

Thank you Aunties!  Mum says I am 3.  It is is bit of a surprise, cos I thought that 3 was old, and I don't feel old.

Thank you for saying Happy Birthday.  It is very nice.  It is nice to have one of my own. :)

We had a warm sleepy lie in.  Mum lifted me up onto the Big Bed, and I slept snuggled up to her for about an hour.  Then we came downstairs.  I was BUSTING by then, and ran to go out the catflap instead of waiting for Mum to unlock the door.

The weather isn't very nice for a Birthday though.  Grey and very windy and cold.  We went to the Outside Sausage cafe for lunch, and Mum got a bit worried cos Tara and me woz shivvering.  So we all had a big discussion and decided to go to Foxy Park for our walk.  There is less wind there than on the salt marshes, you see.  But we get to go to the marshes tomorrow!  So really my Birthday will last 2 days, won't it?  I like Birthdays, though I can't really remember my other ones.

Here are our walk pics.

Mum says to thank you all for talking about the Calming Signals.  She has started using them more on our walks, and Tara isn't beating me up so much, which is nice.  

This is me holding back cos Tara will beat me up.

And this is when Mum has stopped her by stepping between and telling her not to, so I can run to Mum.

I think the karate thing was the final straw.  Mum says she will let her bounce, but in future if she gets too rough she will get directed into less rough avenues.  Wotever that means.  But so far, I like it.  Tara was charging up to me several times, and Mum Calming Signalled her and she stopped short, every time!  And was gentler after that.  I love Mum.

And there is going to be ROAST chicken for tea.  I love chicken.  Mum likes to give it to us raw.  That is OK, but it isn't as good as Roasted.  With skin.  I am very very lucky.  And I might give a bit to Tara, if she doesn't bounce on me again today. :) 

These are Mums boring flower pics.  The hosta is bigger

Cato.....such a nice way to start your Birthday........what a lovely walk. Love you standing in all the cherry blossoms that have fallen from the tree. You enjoy that roasted chicken......funny that you mention roasted chicken cause Mom has a whole chicken in the crock pot for us to nibble on...maybe that is our special treat for your birthday celebration. You have a Wonderful rest of the day...........from all of us 7 Wagging Tails Stinkers of Tennessee we WISH YOU A VERY SPECIAL DAY..............

Thank you for my card, Stinkers All!  It looks kindof like Tara on a Karate Swoop. :)  Hahahaha!

The chicken is going into the oven soon, and I am starting to get a bit excited. :cheezy:

You will appreciate this was a one off action shot, no chance of a re-play - hence the blurs.  lol.

He is now gorged on Roast Chicken, and so are we.  Tara got her share.

- and in case anyone is worried, no dogs got any bones. :)

He is a very happy little buglet.

Lacey, they are very, very, very yummy.

Mummy likes them as she said she doesn't think they have any stuff in them that Donte could be allergic too. 

Your chicken looked yummy. Our big sister might be coming home for a few days at the weekend and Mummy said she'd cook a roast.. Mummy always plates us some roast dinner up.

Cato, 

 Did you salvage the wishbone....so you can make a wish?  When Mom clean the chicken off the bone our wishbone was broken....our special Cato B-day treat was chicken gizzards and were they yummy.......now we patiently wait for Missy to have her birthday for more special treats......glad you had a great day....sleep tight.

Later Man, 

Bailey

Cato:

Morning everyone!  Thank you @Missysmom , Bailey, @missy dawn and @Sophie's Haven 

I will ask Mum for the chicken wishbone thing, though I am not allowed cooked chicken bones normally.  Our chicken didn't have gizzards.  Mum says that next time we have one she will get gizzards for us to have.  I know I like chicken livers, but they make my poo runny if I have too much.  Tara likes crunching the necks.

We have just been given some new tooth chewing treats.  They are very hard.  I tried to chew mine but I couldn't. I left it for Tara.  She seemed to like it.

Mum says the wind is still horrible, so we might not get to the beach today, either. :(

Were not allowed bones either but Mom said growing up she was taught of a custom that you take the chicken wishbone.....it can not be broken it has to be the whole wishbone and you set it aside to dry out.....and two family members make a WISH and each hold the end of the wish bone and pull and who ends up with the top of the wish bone on their piece......their wish will come true.......you probably don't have that custom where you live....I did not give that a thought when I asked you about the wishbone......you might want to give it a try though........Mom said the next time she is going to put a whole package of gizzards in the pot so we all can have our own piece.....we told her she was teasing us with just a morsel......I told her Missy's birthday is coming up and so is Lucy's so to get LOTS of gizzards. Sometime Mom's forgets things that we like and when someone mentions certain foods a light go off and surprise, surprise like chicken and along with the chicken comes gizzards..........:clap:

We pull the wishbone.. You can't have a chicken in our house, without someone asking to pull it when it's dried out. ?
