Happy Birthday Dad!

We have news on the Ginger Ninjas! All four are doing well. Mum's initial attempt at sexing was incorrect (now where have we heard that before...) and there are really three girls and a boy in the litter.

This is Noo-Noo and two of his sisters warming up infront of the heater after a bath. He got his name from the vacuum cleaner on the Teletubbies, because he is a little piglet kitten! He is the biggest in the litter. This is the third sister.
The best news of all is that after the first night, the little ginger (below right) who had a slightly runny eye cleared up completely. In the last two weeks there have been no signs at all of the flu- no sneezes, no runny eyes and no runny noses. That makes us very happy.
Today is our Dad's birthday! He got two cakes, because the first one didn't taste all that good! This was the first one, a sponge cake that we tried to make look like a tractor bringing in his jellybean harvest. The sponge was a bit overdone and there was a bit too much icing!
This is the one we made him today. It is his favourite, a black forest cherry cake with milk chocolate ganache. That should keep mum quiet for a while... MOL!

Happy Birthday to your dad! But we have to say our mom feels there can never be too much icing (and we think it was a cute cake to be bringing in jellybeans!)

And that is such great news about the Ginger Ninjas - they are such cuties and we are glad they are all doing well!

Happy Birthday Dad. That cake looks so Yummy. Our Mommy is drooling.
You ginger kitties are the cutest. It is very unusual to have some female ginger cats. Anyway, they are very cute.
Have a wonderful day.
