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.

Christmas Kitty Edition

 Hello folks and felines!   It's Winston kitty to start off today.   Things have been looking quite festive the past week.   Mom brought home a gift bag one night after a visit with some friends.  Once she left the room I jumped into the bag and did a bit of feline sleuthing!   For some odd reason, Mom always finds it amusing when I crawl into bags and make myself at home.
 Mom has been busy with holiday get togethers and Christmas shopping.  She saw these gingerbread cookies the other day.   Usually a bakery is very tempting for her but she was good and didn't purchase one of these goodies at all!
Mom also does something she calls "staying sane" and by this she means she will go for long, brisk walks to breathe in cold air and look at the sky.   This photo was from a walk in the park just as the sun was setting. 
Hello everybody!  It's my turn--Emily!  Guess what?  We got a Christmas toy early.  I'm so purry happy!  This little mouse has feather on his tail and squeaks when he moves.   I love him so much.  Mom loves him too because she says I go all crazy kitty.  Mom also says I should let the boys have a turn playing with mr. Mouse on the Play n' Squeak.   That is so funny, Mom.   I'm not sharing Mr. squeaky mouse with anybody!
 Here is another photo of one of Mom's Twilight Christmas walks.  If the walks keep Mom from being grumpy then I am all for it!
 Mom was browsing through one of the stores recently and giggled when she saw this --they are called Choc Stars!  She says the kitty is Lady GaGa...I think that one is the best one of all--tres chic.
 Hi, it's Oscar now.   This photo is from last year but I love it so much that I asked Mom to use it again.   This is what I wan for Christmas: a nice box filled with Christmas tissue paper.  Mom says I look incredibly adorable in this photo.   *Score!*  I bet  I will get a new box to enjoy this year.
 Mom went to a bookstore on one of her shopping expeditions and saw this kid's reading nook.  She confided to me that she wished she could have a reading nook like this complete with sparkle lights!  Silly Mom.
 This is Mom meeting with a friend and talking about books, felines and men and kitty toys.   Whatever floats your boat, Mom!  Just make sure we get what we want for Christmas!

It's not easy being good

 Us felines hear so much about having to "be good" at this time of year.   We try but it's not always easy.  Plus our human is very high maintenance.  She doesn't realize how much goes on behind the scenes when we are taking care of her and she just doesn't clue in.  I think we are very patient with her.  We just thought, that is Oscar, Winston and Emily, that we should let you humans know that we are NOT the only ones who have to behave during this holiday season.  Here is a small list of our demands  feline requests to be a good human servant.

Feline Health Benefits

Good morning all,  It's Oscar here to start off.  Just wanted to let you know that Mom is starting to get her voice back.  Keep your paws crossed. Otherwise, I will have to sleep next to her and purr some more until she is better.   Emily and Winston help out by making her smile.  We are exhausted from all the extra cuddling, purring and adorable antics.   Phew.
 Mom is still twiterpated with that silly owl she bought from Chapters.  She is convinced that it needs a Santa Hat.  In fact, she had one put by using the computer.
 I will admit it looks festive but it's just one more thing for Emily to fling onto the floor!
 Oscar, I am a little hurt that you would insinuate that I merely knock about the Christmas decorations for fun.  I have to admit, though, that I am very excited about Christmas!  So many things to smack, bat and drag around!  I'm dreaming about the toys and treats I will get for Christmas if I behave.  I will try very, very hard.
The weather here has been very up and down.   One day we will have a lovely dusting of snow.  The next day the temperature climbs and everything melts.
