Question for pet owners: today is my kitty Salem's first birthday. I bought her some toy mice and a special treat. Do you celebrate your pets birthdays?

I have 2 rescue dogs, so I don't know their birthdays, but they are well loved and cared for every day.

heck yes, my dog has hip dysplasia and pretty bad arthritis and he's only 3 so I try to make every birthday count because he's not going to have as many as he should.

I'm sorry to hear that. No matter how long they live, it's never enough!

Yea, I try to enjoy the time I have with him :) his condition is pretty well regulated with medication and my vet says he should have several more years before he deteriorates to the point of needing surgery, so I'm thankful. happy bday to Salem BTW!

I think for my cats first birthday (I was 11) I made a big cake in shape of a cat. For me to eat of course. She got a can of wet food and toys!

My Doug's birthday is 4 days before Christmas, so we usually get her one little thing for the two holidays combined.

Not sure of their bdays so I celebrate their adoption days with extra love... since I spoil them with toys regularly already :P

They do get Christmas presents though. One actually loves wrapping paper... It's quite convenient!!

Of coarse do they are members of our family.

We don't have a pet now, but never did make a big deal on her birthday when we did. I'm not sure we ever even knew her exact birthday - she was already about six weeks old when we got her. She got her own present on both of our birthdays though.

Yes!! I kind of go all out for my pet's birthdays...and if I'm being honest, today is my dog's adoption day and I plan on celebrating that too :-) Pets deserve love on their birthdays too! Happy birthday to your sweet Salem!

Yesterday was my griffon George's 1st bday. We gave him two coffee cakes. He peed and got wild but we gave them to him anyway. Happy Birthday, butthead.

We just give our pets presents at random times because we don't remember when their birthdays are

I only remember my kitty's birthday because it's the day before my anniversary or I'd be in the same boat as you!

My family has a tradition of giving the dog a baskin Robbins ice cream cone on their birthday

And, when I have one, my pets totally get stockings at Christmas, too!

So do mine!! Never buy their stockings from the dollar tree store though. I bought Salems there last year and it had a huge spelling mistake I didn't notice until it was hung up

Your babies are so spoiled. :D

I'm sorry to hear about the stocking! But noted, I will be wary. Sadly it may not be an issue for me for a while.

I always say what's the point in having pets if you can't spoil them!? I'll try to get a link to the picture of that stocking so you can have a good laugh

My husband and I made a joke of it. Now we always say " Salem, you're so purrrfe!"

That's kind of horrible, but awesome at the same time.

Nope... I don't really celebrate birthdays in general.

No, she thinks everyday is her birthday and demands to be treated like it is :)
