Nothing says "Happy Birthday" quite like a yummy treat! Enjoying some much deserved birthday cake is probably the best part of your cat's special day! Casey from Good Food Stories shared an easy to make birthday cake for your cat that we tried, tested and loved! If you're running low on time or if your cat is a very picky eater, you can always use her favorite wet food and decorate it with cat treats - this worked great for our Nemo's 3rd birthday! Just don't forget to blow out the candle and make a wish on your cat's behalf!

3. Turn Your House Into a Cat Playground
Make sure your cat gets plenty of entertainment by turning a room or a corner of your house into a kitty's paradise! We're talking boxes, boxes, more boxes, small and cheap cat toys, paper balls, wool and whatever else you have handy. You can create the perfect playground for your cat without spending a dime! Your cat loves paper? Spread some wrapping paper around! She is obsessed with boxes? Cut big round holes in old boxes and let her explore this box maze! I usually also get a bag of cheap cat toys because our cats love anything new, so even the simplest toys keep them entertained if they are brand new. As any cat owner can attest, cats play with random things like pens, tags, cables. Embrace the mess and let your cat enjoy all the entertainment!
4. Surprise Her With New Toys Or Trees
If some of your cat's essentials need to be replaced, her birthday is the perfect occasion to do that. Whether you need a new cat tree or want to try out a new fancy cat toy, bed or fountain, now you have a great excuse! The novelty of it all will keep your cat happy and entertained, while you'll update some of your cat furniture must-haves!
5. Snap Some Pictures
