Jake's Birthday

At the end of November, Jake's 11th birthday kicked off the beginning of our crazy Christmas/birthday season. We went all out with decorations, presents and cake (for us; an appropriate feline treat for Jake!) Having been a live-in nanny for over five years, Jake has become as much a part of my family as Jolie and the girls. I never had a pet growing up and I've never been much of an animal person - except for a select few who have wormed their way into my hearts... but I love my Jakey. Like Lysa, he helps keep us all sane. Truly, he's a person in a cat's body and I can't imagine our lives without him!

Of course not! As long as she likes the hoodie... I don't believe in torturing animals, haha! Yesterday Layni tried to put her pink Bambi hat on Jake's head; as it was way too big, he was running around blind trying to claw it off before I rescued him. With everything he has to put up with, he totally deserved a big birthday party!
