Pecan's First Birthday

Even though I have done nothing this long weekend (today included) I'm still thankful for it. I should be studying but I feel like I deserve this holiday just like every other working person. What makes it even better is that today is a day off running (hooray!) only one week to go now until I run so far that I will most probably die. So far I have spent today looking after Mr S who has a terrible tummy bug (at the same time trying to steer clear of his germys!) as well as sorting photos and blog posts out. I wasn't going to blog about Pecan's birthday because a) people think I'm crazy and b) this is a food blog, emphasis on the FOOD part. Well, I don't care.

Pecan is my darling little kitty cat, I wrote about her here and here. Now I've started up a blog just for her. I know it sounds like I'm a crazy cat lady but it all honesty it's mainly just a way to get all my photos up somewhere apart from Facebook. You see I take hundreds and thousands of photos of her and they are too good not to share! In fact, I just checked her photo folder on my computer there is exactly 733 photos of her and lots of videos too! Okay so maybe I am a crazy cat lady.

It was Pecan's first birthday last week so we celebrated by making her a little party hat which she honestly didn't mind wearing. I'm telling the truth! (I know you don't believe me) She also liked to play with it so now it's another cat toy. We bought her a laser pointer for a little present and you wouldn't believe how nuts she goes for it! Plus I made her a little cat-friendly cake. This "cake" was made with Fancy Feast topped with cat treats. For months we have collected free samples of cat food which is for adult cats and I wouldn't let Mr S give them to her until she was 1 year old so her birthday marked the day she was free of kitty food too!

Happy birthday Pecan baby! Thanks for staying cute and fluffy!

  4. Your cat is adorable and I think it's sweet that you love her so much! I have a question for you that's non-cat related. Your photos are so clear and amazing! What camera/lens combo are you using? I use a Canon with an L series lens and am always looking for new equipment! :)

    1. Oh Lisa you are so kind, I actually don't even know how to use my camera! It's all on auto settings (how embarassing) one day I'll find time to work it all out I'm sure.
      I just use a Canon 550D with the lens that came with it, nothing exciting haha!
