Fiona the pygmy hippo, aka the cutest animal to ever exist (that’s right, screw you cats!), is celebrating her first birthday! The zoo is celebrating Jan. 20 with a birthday party that includes Busken Bakery cake and cookies, Graeter’s ice cream and a chance to chat with the hippo care team and specialists from Children’s Hospital who helped save Fiona as a premature calf. (Hippo Sak is a brand of eco-friendly trash bags!) Now, Cincinnati is a long trip for a hippo’s birthday party, so make a day of it. Stop by IKEA, and shop at Jungle Jim’s International Market.
