These Birthdays Are Going to be the Death of Me (2022)
Since today is one of those "milestone birthdays", I thought it best to commemorate it with those that I spend the most time with...mainly Addie (left) and Ocky (right). And since it's a celebration, I figured get everyone a proper dessert (peanut butter, chocolate cake, and tuna - separate, of course).
Ocky sits on either the table or the blanket all day, so I assumed he would have no problem sitting on the blanket ON the table. But what they say about assumptions held true, and Ocky proceeded to make an ass of me.
One picture and he bolted, claws out. Took the blanket/tablecloth with him, attached to his claw, He also decided to hit the tripod as he passed it. I caught it, but not before falling and cracking and skinning my knee as I watched him hide behind the couch.
Addie got birthday treats. I had a little bit of the cake. Ocky got some angry glares and a big helping of cold shoulder from me. He then, naturally, proceeded to go park himself on the table for the rest of the evening.
(For the record, the flames were comped in, so he was not spooked by fire. He just knew how to put the kibosh on my plan).
