Shavuot - Feast of Treats

Our Human has been celebrating the Shavuot festival today - the Jewish Feast of Weeks. But for Us, it has been a Feast of Treats. On this festival, it is traditional to eat dairy foods, and at any rate, not meat. She had her sisters round, with their mates and kittens, for a Buffet Lunch and made lots and lots of delicious goodies and her sisters also contributed tasty treats. It was very noisy and the little ones ran about all over the place, which always scares Us, so We hide under the bed. But She knows this, so when there is going to be Company, She shuts the bedroom door so they won't come in and disturb Us.
Anyway, after everyone had gone and We had the house to Ourselves again, She shared some of the Festival Food with Us. Since there's such a lot left over, perhaps some of you would care to join Us. What would you say to some fresh salmon, baked in a delicate sour cream and dill sauce? Or maybe a dollop or two of tuna salad? Cheese and mushroom quiche, anyone? And for those of you with a sweet tooth, the pi├Ęce de resistance  (and our human's showpiece) - cheese-cake (with cherries)...
But you'd better hurry - it won't be there for long ;-) 

Possum and Pixie

PS. If any of you know of a homeless kitty, in need of a square meal, you could bring them along too. We have so much, we would like to share some with pussycats less fortunate than ourselves...

Wow we wish we had a festival of treats like that! We don't get anything like that ever at our house - those foods sound tasty! WE would love to transport over and share with you but we don't think we will make it for everything - we will try!
