Well, mom had to get on this harness kick again. So on the harness went and she called me to come downstairs to the basement. I don’t like to walk while wearing this thing. I know I look like there is a saddle, which is far too heavy for me, straddled to my back. Also I mince on by with tiny steps. Dad laughed when I walked by him. Finally, I made it to the basement. There was a reward waiting for me.
See my race car in the background. Now, seeing as mom gave me a treat each time I walked for the treat. I wouldn’t walk unless I got a treat. It didn’t take mom long to figure this out either. Pretty soon Kali was in the basement with us getting all the attention and treats. Mom was so happy Kali was getting exercise for her hip. Well, mom ran out of treats and Kali and mom went upstairs while I minced along much more slowly.
While they were waiting for moi, Kali posed for a picture in my toque.
After we had a rest from our frolicking in the basement Mom decided to have a peek at Elfin John who has been busy fishing in the kitchen sink. Heck he caught 2 spoons and a small fork. He told mom he was ready to go back in the nightie drawer till later in the year. So Kali helped him into the drawer.
Kali tucked him in for a long nap and we all got a little sad.
I brought Kali into the living room where we discovered our friend had sent us some goodies. Kali was overcome by the feathers as I was and soon Elfin John was forgotten.
Trust mom to snap the picture when we looked away from the feathers. Really mom, get with it.
What a wonderful Crisp Mouse. We are so lucky to have such great friends. Mom and dad were excellent at interpreting our signals for what we craved the most of all.
Christmas morning found us all ready to dive into the prezzies whether they were ours or not. Dad kyboshed that idea smartly and gave us our first present each. We looked so organized and well…. you know, Dudley do right. Then mom said oh what did Shoko get from her Secret Santa?….. and I was there like a shot.
Turns out my Secret Santa was Pete Hartley, Co-Patrol Leader of The ThunderCats Den in Cat Scouts. He sent us a gorgeous feather wand….I’ve never seen so many feathers all in one place. Thank you Pete H. I love it. Here is Kali digging into some nip from the Rockies. This was sent by mom’s brother and wife and their kitties. Uncle John lives right smack dab in the mountains and the soil produces thee BESTEST nip EVER. Thanks Uncle and Aunty. Mom decided to open one of her presents also. Hurry up….I’m dying to know what it is. Carol Burnett dvd’s…um well,that’s nice. You can take them for your IV Treatments, put earplugs in, and sit there and laugh. Peeps will think you’re nuts! hahaha This is our box from Einstein and Buddy Of Timmy’s Commentary and family. You know, I’ve never seen a roll of dehydrated chicky boobs in my WHOLE life but these guys found one and sent it to us. We’re fixed for chicky boobs for a year. Wow. We each got a personalized card from our honeys, a crinkle ball…I never saw one of those either, some nip, a kicker and so many things from these wonderful mancats. Notice the black kicker Bacon from Piglove sent us. It’s unbelievable. You can’t realy see the Friskies in a box shaped like a cat head from Easy but they’re in mom’s mess.
Mom, Kali and I thank all the furfriends that sent Christmas Cards and we have attempted to make a slide show….don’t laugh….we tried.
What a fun and filling day. The turkey was scrumptious.
