The Victorian Christmas House and Felines!!

 Merry Christmas (a bit early!) from Santa Winston.   I'm here for a quick update on our household.  
 The weather here is decidedly UN-festive.   By this I mean it's been primarily rainy, damp and foggy.  This photo was taken by the Mom on a recent walk to view some Christmas lights!  In order to help her get into the Christmas spirit she and friend decided to do something fun!
 So that  Mom and a friend went to tour a Victorian home that had been decorated for Christmas.  She saw an Advent wreath!  
 Miss Emily here now!  Guess what, though, on the weekend there was a little bit of the white stuff!
 (Little birds trying to hide from me!)  Thankfully, the snow was so much fun to watch they were safe from my fierce feline huntress capabilities!
 It was nice to see the snow covering up all the drab greys and browns.  Plus, it was only a dusting so it wasn't too hard to get around!
 This is a plate of goodness inside the parlor where the Mom person went.   She said it was in a roped off area of the Victorian Christmas house!   Poor goodies for her!
 Winston and Oscar now.  Oscar has been feeling kind of tired so I snuggled up to him.   He has another spa day before Christmas.  
 This is the dining room in that same Christmas house.   Mom fell in love with the dishes!   We think she should be more interested on the food.   Silly humans!   Don't worry, though....
 There was a tiny, but delicious, plate of goodies for the Mom and her friend!  There was homemade gingerbread (the Mom got the recipe!)and shortbread.   They even got a cup of warm apple cider!
 The Victorians lit their trees with real candles!   Mom says she doesn't think that would work for us?  Just look at that cool kitty tree just dangling with ornaments for us to smack around!

We will close for now.   But before we do we just wanted to quickly mention that the Mom's step father is very, very ill.   They are hoping he makes it to Christmas.   We send him our warmest purrs because we know it is comforting and he helped Mom find Miss Emily.
Sending you our purrs for a great week.   If you get too stressed remember that cuddling your feline will help relieve your frustrations.  Also, so will giving your kitties catnip treats, Temptations, toys and a nice brushing.   (PS-our human fell for that!)
Oscar, Winston and Emily


  1. The Victorian house tour looks like it was wonderful. Our biped is all about the food, though, forget the dishes. Ha.

    Purrs to Oscar, we're sending him our best wishes and the human is sending universal divine Light. Also all our purrs and Light to your mom's step-dad, your mom and her family.

    Peace and blessings.

  2. That was a fun tour. I love the Victorian homes especially at Christmas. Audrey says her tree is lots of fun to play with; especially the bottom row of un-breakables (but she can rip them to shreds). I send good thoughts and prayers for your step father. This is such a hard time to enjoy while worrying about someone else. I hope you do have a wonderful Christmas. Deb:)
