How to celebrate a cats bday?

Sophie and Ollie's "birthday" is tomorrow! Of course I don't really know their bday but I took a guess the day I got them according to how old they appeared to be. They are not siblings either but must have been born right around the same time so I figured they could share the day.

ANYWAYS!! I want to do something special for them for their bday. Maybe give them a special meal... I'm sure you guys have ideas! I thought about making them some real chicken or something but don't know the first thing about preparing that for a cat. For me, yes. For a cat, no.

What do you suggest?

I had a cat (Major Thunderpussy) whose absolute favorite treat was butterscotch pudding. For his birthday, I always made enough pudding for everyone. I cleaned "pudding" from the litterboxes for the next two days, but hey, it was worth it to see ol' Major's face smeared with his bestest treat.

This year I bought a ton (about 25) of those cheap (3/$1) soft cat balls and several other on-sale cheap cat toys, put them in the bag with the 30-40 cat toys "we" already have, and one by one, quickly threw ALL the toys all over the living room and kitchen. It was a blast! Just as someone would pounce on a toy, another toy would go flying somewhere else. I had cats sliding into walls, colliding with each other, and it took them quite a while to calm down. Who needs cable?

Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in his shoes. That way, when you criticize him, you're a mile away and you have his shoes.

My kitteh's favorites are the cheapo little 'nip filled cloth pouch toys and, of all things, a funky little scrap of shoestring from the yard.

Arianwen gets two celebrations -

Her "gotcha day", her adoption anniversary, a few weeks ago
Her "birthday guesstimate day" coming up around the end of September

Ah, any excuse for a party with my favorite Kitta!
She gets extra treats, extra outside time, extra play time, extra pettings, and extra nip toys for her two big days!

Ideas for kitty B'day:

- freshly opened can of a favorite flavor of food

- birthday card rubbed with catnip for fun photo opportunities!

- new cheap toys or one new fancy toy if you can find one of the 'tried and true' ones that your kitty doesn't have yet (Da Bird, Cat Dancer, etc.)

Have fun! Post pictures! Happy early Birthday to the two-some!

Thanks for the ideas!! I think I will take a little from each and just try to make them happy today. They are eating their morning wet food right now, but that's nothing out of the ordinary. So I think I will stop by the store and pick up something special later today. But mostly I will give them all my attention. The card idea is funny. I just might do that

PS: My bf had to leave early this morning for a presentation so I was all alone feeding them and I sang them Happy Birthday. I felt kinda stupid and their looks at me sort of confirmed that, but HEY! They are like my children. I love them...
