Oscar and Midge had a birthday on Saturday. It was very exciting, because a new lady came, I hadn’t met her before. Everyone else had, and she knew everyone who’s ever been here. Auntie Vikki. She tickled my nose and my head but I felt that was enough on first meeting and moved away before she tried the full body cuddle. Maybe next time.
Then she and Mummy went and sat outside with Oscar and Midge. They got lots of cuddles, and they don’t often go out at the same time, so they must have been on best behaviour. Vikki gave them a card and some presents. We had some of the present for breakfast next day. It was okay. A breakfast cookie. Mummy says there’s two more, each, with different flavours. That’s good, I wasn’t excited by the flavour of the one we had yesterday.
We also had birthday cake in the garden in the afternoon. That was great!!! I loved birthday cake. Mummy took photos of us, then took the candles off the cake and we just enjoyed it while we had a run on the grass. I enjoyed the cake very, very much. Kevin got a bit stroppy with me at one point. I don’t know what he was fussed about, just because I’d taken over his tent and ate more of the cake than anyone else.
We all got presents for Oscar and Midge’s birthday – new cagewear. Oscar inherited George’s hammock, which I never worked out how to use; I got a new bed, which I’ve tried out and it’s very comfortable; Kevin got a new snugglesack which he says is ace, and Midge got a new tunnel which he likes so much he doesn’t want to leave. He also got a rosette for the Piggy of the Month photo, but I’ll talk about that next week.
It was a very busy weekend, and I need a rest, but I have to wish our American friends a Happy Independence Day. I hope you enjoy it.
