Happy Hanukkah, Merry Christmas, Happy New Year, and Happy Kwanzaa Efurryone! We hope that you all had nice holidays with your families and furriends.

This was our first Christmas in our furrever home at Casa Cabán. First, Mommy and Daddy felt the need to take our pictures.  Mommy and Daddy made us dress up for the occasion. They made Panda Bear wear a jester’s collar with jingle bells.  (snicker)

Meerkat had to wear a red muffler with big fuzzy white balls.  Meerkat and Panda Bear do look cute sitting together on their Gizzy Quilts on the rolling foot stool thingy.  They look so different from each other, but they are siblings.

Oh, the indignity of it all …  they made me wear a Santa Hat. (Note how pretty my blue Gizzy Quilt is. If you want to learn more about Gizzy Quilts, check out the Bizzy for Gizzy web site.)

The photo shoot completely exhausted us, so we caught up on our napping.  We had to be well rested for the rest of the day’s festivities.  Meerkat slept on the rolling foot stool thingy next to our stockings.  (Mommy was afraid to hang our stockings from the mantel.  Something about a certain male kitten in the house who has a fetish with dangly things.)

Panda Bear chose to sleep under the tree among the presents.

I slept in a basket that Mommy and Daddy said used to belong to “Clyde”.  Mommy and Daddy were all weepy because they said I looked just like Clyde in the basket.

After we got all rested, then we started opening presents!  I got this really cool catnip sock that Panda Bear kept trying to steal from me.

Panda Bear gave a good sniff to his toys.

Meerkat had fun playing with the neato pink boa toy:

Meerkat gave the DVD of Season One of “Meerkat Manor” to Mommy.  Note how Meerkat is posing just like the picture of the meerkat on the box.  Doesn’t Mommy look happy?

We had a wonderful Christmas, and it was the very first Christmas for the kittens.  We are all very grateful for having such a great furrever home!

Happy Hanukkah, Merry Christmas, Happy New Year, and Happy Kwanzaa Efurryone!

So far there is an extremely high correlation between Mom and Dad using the Rug-Sucking Monster and then visitors showing up. So we should have expected that after Mom and Dad dragged the Rug-Sucking Monster all over the downstairs yesterday morning, that we would be having visitors soon.

Mommy also gave us our pedicures yesterday morning. Daddy and Mommy put more of the Christmas nail cover thingys on Meerkat’s and my toe nails, to replace the ones that we managed to remove that fell off all by themselves.

Around lunch time yesterday, Mom and Dad went out. When they came back, they brought some visitors with them: Miss Edie, Mr. Scott, and their Sticky Little People, David and Jane.

Mr. Scott introduces me to Little Jane

Now, I have read about Sticky Little People on other cats’ blogs. So, I was a bit nervous about meeting them in person. I did not want them petting me funny or grabbing my tail. I was also a bit miffed that Mom and Dad did not consult The Furry Bambinos before permitting the Sticky Little People into the house for a visit.

I kept my distance from the Sticky Little Girl

Anyway, the Sticky Little People freaked me out initially. David walked around on his hind legs, and Jane sometimes walked on her hind legs, and sometimes on all fours. Jane was very interested in our water fountain and food dishes, but Miss Edie and Mr. Scott kept an eye on Jane and didn’t let her steal any of our food or water.

After awhile, David decided to play with us. He took the neato pink boa feather toy and waved it around and ran around and laughed and squealed a lot. It was fun to chase David and the neato pink boa feather toy. David sure knows how to play!! And he doesn’t get tired as quickly as Daddy and Mommy do.

Apparently, there is a cat-kitty named Fiowwwwnnnnna who lives with David, so I guess that is why he was so good at playing with us. Meerkat and I had a great time chasing the neato pink boa feather toy, and Padre even got into it too.

When it was time for them to leave, David was having such a good time that he had to be carried out of the house, while kicking and screaming that he wanted to stay.

Padre, Meerkat, and I were worn out by the time Mr. Scott, Miss Edie, David, and Jane left. Mommy fed us our supper, and then I curled up in a ball on Mommy’s chair and went to sleep! Meerkat and Padre took power cat naps too.

For Sticky Little People, I have to say that I was totally and pleasantly surprised at how much fun they could be. Mr. Scott and Miss Edie must be very good human parents. If David and Jane are as much fun as they were yesterday, then they can come back anytime for more play dates!
