Tipp des Tages : 21 April

Organising a birthday party for your cat

To arrange a birthday party for your cat, you must first choose the guest list. You should only invite people or animals your cat likes : avoid people allergic to cat hair and animals who love to chasing cats all around the house.
If your cat does feel good only with you, organize the party just between you two.

Prepare a suitable design and plan your cat's favorite dishes. Make also dishes for guests who do not share the tastes of your pet.

Organize games with the guests and get everyone involved. But remember that it is the your cat's birthday and that he has to play first.

To purchase gifts, please choose what your pet really like.

The goal is to have fun at a party, but remember this is yourcat who decides and on that day, he may be sleepy. In this case, do not disturb him and play games with other guests and tell cats stories.
