Our Gift to Jan

Hey, Cameron here. While Jan is busy elsewhere, I thought I'd borrow the computer to update you on yesterday's post. First, thanks to all our friends who sent a birthday message to Jan. She appreciated the nice messages, including the ones that hoped her desire for strawberries and whipped cream would be fulfilled. She was hopeful the Zoolatry girls would figure out a way to teleport some over here, but, alas, their teleport was down.

Our gift to her was that we were perfect furries for the day. Um, sort of perfect. Uh, maybe not quite. But we didn't ... Unfortunately we did .... Well, guess we should admit we were almost perfect furries yesterday. Jan was pleased with us, so maybe she didn't notice ... Never mind. We wouldn't want to bring anything she missed to her attention.

She did get to lunch with a friend earlier in the week. When the friend mentioned "birthday," the waitress returned to plop a hat on Jan's head. It was heavy! Can you guess what kind of restaurant they visited?

Yep, you guessed correctly - Chinese. :)

Sorry, I mean Mexican. I added the sunglasses so Jan won't get upset with me for posting her picture.

Jan walked to Ingles yesterday to buy a special food for Buddy. We hoped she would return with some whipped cream and strawberries, so we might have a taste of the cream. But she said they aren't in our budget, so she just came back with carrots and dog food. We were disappointed. We've never tasted whipped cream but other blogging furries say it's delicious.

Then Jan got a surprise. Her friend read our post yesterday and just before the booming storm hit, the friend's husband dropped off a special treat. In no time, Jan had her dinner prepared and barely waited long enough to snap a picture.

Yep, that's Jan's dinner. A plate with 3 thin slices of pound cake, fresh strawberries and whipped cream made with real cream. It looked a lot yummier in person but Jan was more interested in eating it than staging a photograph.

Since there's more in the fridge, we're hoping we'll each get a taste of the whipped cream today. Many thanks to the couple who provided the special "feast."

KC's birthday was Sunday too and her mom said she got a can of Evo's Duck Cat Food, which KC enjoyed but her mom thinks smells terrible. Maybe we should have gotten Jan a can for her birthday. It would be good protein. And surely she'd share that with us?

Have to run. The fridge door was just opened. I'm hoping Jan is planning a whipped cream snack for us.

  15. Forgive me, but seeing the sombrero and seeing the mention of Chinese food got me wondering. What are Chinese restaraunts like in Mexico? Do refried beans go with water chestnuts and bamboo shoots? Are there Mexican restaraunts in Germany? Are there German restaraunts in China?

    These things keep me up nights...

    Oh wait, I had a purpose for this. Right. HAPPY BIRTHDAY! ;)

    The Big Thing
