Wednesday Whimsy - A Catty Little Christmas!


Have Yourself a Catty Little Christmas this Year!

 I’m still waiting for Mom to put up my stocking this year. She put up a lace mantle scarf, but nothing else yet. When I sleep during December I dream of extra kitty treats and catnip, and maybe a new stuffed mouse to pounce on.

My least favorite thing that happened this holiday season was when somebody bought me a Santa hat and thought I’d like it. How embarrassing! Thankfully it was too big and I pulled it off right away.

My favorite part of Christmas last year was helping with the Christmas tree. You know, my humans just don’t arrange the branches quite right for the best climbing and exploration, so I need to get in there to make sure things are right. If your cat needs more help in this area, have them read about two very smart kitties, Iris and Fern, at their Tree Decorating 101 web page. They have several cool step-by-step pictures. (Mom needs to take more pictures of me, so I can show off more often!)

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you and your cats out there (waving a paw at Tasha and Wild Cat, especially) and even a few dogs, like my friend, Jakearoo! Wednesday Whimsy will take a holiday break. We’ll be back in 2014 on January 8 with more pet interviews, book reviews and commentary on cat life. Until then, don’t forget to spoil your pet this holiday season.

Cat not included!

  1. My cat must be a close cousin. She loves to climb up in the tree and unfortunately rode the tree down to the ground. For an old cat she ran like a spring kitten. Merry Christmas!

    1. Merry Christmas, Mary! The cats are fun to watch if they don't knock over the
      tree. :) At least that hasn't happened here . . . yet.

  2. Cat not included?! Awww... but I don't suppose our cat would appreciate another addition to the household anyway. He's a crotchety old puss. ;) And I see chocolate in that basket so... deal me in!

    1. Cool, Pegg. Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment. Lily wouldn't
      want another kitty around either. She's happy being an only cat, so I know
      what you mean. :)

  3. No kitties here to climb into our tree. I would love to have one but I think my chiwennie would get extremely jealous !

    1. Thanks for stopping by! What is a chiwennie?

    2. It's an itty-bitty dog that squeaks. (Says she who owns a St. Bernard.)

    3. I wondered if it was a dog of some kind . . . or a large rodent . :)

    4. It's one of those "designer dogs" (what we used to call mutts), a cross between a chihuahua and a dashhound. They charge unbelievable amounts of money for these little designer dogs. It's unreal. Don't get me wrong, I love mutts. Half the dogs I've owned in my life have been mutts and they are every bit as wonderful - or more so - than the purebreds. It just amazes me what people will pay for them now. My current trio of dogs are all rescues, two purebreds and one mutt. :)

    5. Thanks for the education, Pegg! Mutts make good dogs and cats. :) I can't
      believe how much some cats cost either. My little rescue kitty wound up
      needing surgery, so ended up being more expensive than expected.

    6. I'm blessed to have a vet who will work with me because she knows I take in rescues. My St Bernard needed surgery to correct turned-in eyelids when I got him. She did that - all four lids - plus neutered him for just over $200. I'm sure she could have easily doubled that, even 8 years ago. I've never regretted taking in any of our rescues. They've all be wonderful pets with no lasting issues from their rough beginnings.
