Feline Christmas

 Hello all!  It's Oscar kitty starting off to tell everyone "Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.   Mom took this photo of me surrounded by some of our Christmas presents.   One of the prezzies is a mouse and kitty treats. 
 Mom tries to make Christmas special by having an extra nice breakfast.  This year she chose gingerbread pancakes with strawberries and maple syrup.  She never tried them before and said it tasted delicious!
 She was able to purchase the mix from Chapters because she got a gift card.  You can also see in this photo a gift she got from a previous year.  I'm sorry to inform you that our Mom is a geek.  Yeah.  She likes Doctor Who.  Please don't get her started...just trust me on this.   Also, another first--we kitty brats bought Mom a present this year!  She was very excited as her family celebrates together on Boxing Day and she doesn't usually get to open a present on Christmas morning.
 Here is our gift to her.  Didn't we do an excellent wrapping job!   
 Hi!  It's my turn now.  I am posing for Mom in my favorite place--the forbidden dining room table.  Now back to our Mom's present....
 Here is our gift tag on Mom's present.   The present was from all of us--including Lucy. ( There isn't a day that goes by that Mom doesn't miss her.)
 Here is what we got her!  Feline coasters.   So practical and beautiful.   Purrs from us to her.
 Yeah, Emily, but let's get on to our presents.  Here I am patiently waiting for Mom to open up one of our presents early Christmas morning.  Guess what it was

 Only it wasn't the yummy eaty kind.  Trust me I tried.  Still I had some fun checking it out.
 Mom also took some walks that she told us about. These are her "staying sane walks" we told you about earlier.    We like to hear about the twinkle lights and the bits of  white fluff that fall from the sky.

I'm closing with this cardinal photo.  She took yet another walk on Christmas morning and saw this red bird.  Mom says whenever she spots a cardinal it feels like she has been given a gift.   Mind you--she prefers us but we can understand her interest in flying things.
We hope everyone had a lovely Christmas!


  1. Emily, we have a Forbidden Dining room table too. We are always on it! Does your Mama mange to keep you off of it...ever?!!

    LP loves birds too and feels that whenever she see certain birds it is also a gift to her. She likes seeing the Steller's Jay as it is indigenous to the west coast but we don't see it as often as a chickadee or pine siskin .

    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all of you :)
