December 25 and 26

I had been going to join my father for brunch on Christmas Day but our weather was very uncertain...icy rain, freezing drizzle, fog, and rain, quite heavy at times. So we decided to wait 'til Sunday to get together.

I finally had a chance to sit down and start writing Christmas cards after spending the day making them. Of course as soon as i sat down at the computer desk Louie needed a snuggle.

Today i opened the lovely gifts my friend Betsy sent for the cats and me. Here's Sylvie playing with a twist of fabric jam-packed with very high quality catnip.

Fuzzy is giving me some of his patented kitty kisses with his sandpaper tongue. I'm wearing the gorgeous purple Pashmina shawl Betsy gave me.
Gingy standing up on her hind legs and begging for the yummy new treats that my sister Friskies "Natural Sensations" cat treats. (Believe it or not, when Gingy came to live with us 5 years ago she only ate one kind of treat, and didn't actually care for them much...)
Fuzzy and Louie sharing a day-after-Christmas snuggle.
Peace and happiness to everyone!
