Happy Birthday to Flea.

Flea
Dear Flea,

Happy Birthday. I know I've only got one child of my own so it's sort of hard to compare, but of all the children I've ever met, you're definitely the best one.  

Thanks for sitting through endless business meetings in the past month and behaving like an angel. I owe you SO big.

Thanks for making me laugh so hard I almost passed out when you said that you’d been looking forward to your birthday for months because Grandma said she’s making sausages.

Thanks for the last-minute, not-at-all inconvenient change in birthday request from ‘kitten’ to ‘hamster’. I live for that kind of excitement in my life.  

Thanks for not being too old to hold my hand, quite yet.

I’d write more, but I’ve got to go and see if Pets at Home are open on Sundays.

Love, 

Mummy.

    Awww. Flea sounds fantastic! Hamsters probably easier to look after than kittens anyway!

    Happy Birthday Flea! I love the wisdom of age that concludes hamsters are better. I agree actually, but then I’m also old.

    Awwwww… Happy birthday Flea!
    P.S. Kittens are FAR better than Hamsters. Much more cuddly, and less inclined to wee or poo on you. Honest 🙂

    Is it very wrong to say secretly I wanted a cat? Bit gutted.

    Happy Birthday Flea! You can get cool houses and toys and tunnels for hamsters so much more entertaining than cats (just very embarrassing if and when you have to take them to the vets as they don’t look like “real” animals there compared with most pets you see in vets waiting rooms!)

    Dear Flea,
    Happy Birthday!!! Hope you had an amazing day.
    Sure you don’t want a cat to keep the hamster company?!

    Cats are overrated – they have germs and stuff,
    Hamsters are a nice and easy pet – you got off lightly.
    She’s a real beauty Sally – you must be so proud
