Flashback Friday Meets Whipped Cream Day

A quick check of the National Day Calendar shows that there's a special day to celebrate just about anything! For instance, tomorrow is National Whipped Cream Day.

It brought to mind my angel kitty Sashi (the last of two tuxies I had before torties took over my life). She LOVED canned whipped cream, specifically what we called "cow can cream" from Cabot because of the cow print design on the can.


She had a small squirt of her favorite treat pretty much on a daily basis, and on birthdays we would put a candle in it.

Confession time...I still have her last (mostly empty) can of whipped cream stored away in the back of my fridge. Some people probably think that's crazy, but I'm sure my fellow cat moms won't.

Whipped cream is Mimi's favorite! I still have Sophie's meow on my voice mail message. She died in 2006. People still tell Sophie to tell her mom their message. Purrfectly normal.

Sashi's face in the photo is just too cute. She looks so happy with her whipped cream birthday treat. Love seeing this flashback photo. Thanks for the share. Have a wonderful upcoming weekend and happy new year to you all.

I discovered the jar of pill paste that we used for all of Chuck's medicines over the holiday. It's staying right where it is, end of story.

What a beautiful kitty with her birthday treat.

There is still a container with one cookie in it in my freezer. The Christmas after she was diagnosed with a brain tumor my friend gave me the container full of cookies. I never did eat the last one. She died last summer.

Can you share the "best by" date on that can? Heh heh. Tuxie's rule! TW still has unopened Waffle cans of Mile's in our fridge.

Evan says Sashi was not only very pretty, but also had very good taste in treats. He loves him some whipped cream, too. As for keeping that old can of whipped cream, I have a can of my angel Rosie's favorite food as well as a jar of her favorite baby food in with the rest of her things in her memory box. They will probably be there forever. Purrs!

My cat Pita loves whipped cream. I think that's a beautiful tribute keeping the can. Thank you for sharing.
