I am not sure what that is all about. People seem to think on a certain day they get a whole new year. It just seems like another day to me but if there are treats I am there. Continue reading
There is so much to do to prepare for Christmas and Santa’s arrival. Continue reading
Mom says this is a time for family so no blogging today. Everyone should be with family and fiends doing things they enjoy like getting treats and going for walks.
I just wanted to say Merry Christmas. It’s been so great so far, and I have a lot to tell you. I can’t wait to see what tomorrow brings. Can’t wait to see what Santa brings!
Arthur and I want to ask everyone…
“Life is a very special kind of thing, not just for a chosen few.
But for each and every living breathing thing. Not just me and you.
So in your Christmas prayers this year, …
… say a prayer for the wind, and the water, and the wood,
and those who live there, too.”
Apparently Christmas does have presents. It seems only for cats.
Arthur got his Christmas present early. It was a big box which Arthur liked…the box that is. He also liked helping mom put it together. He went nuts running all over it and scratching it and swatting at the dangling toys. It got me all excited watching him so I joined in and jumped at him and nipped.
Mom got mad and told me to let Arthur have his fun. So I ended up in my room. I don’t get it. She laughed when Arthur did it.
I had to sit and watch.
When it was all finished mom let me out.
She said Arthur got this particular present because of me.
I don’t know how she figures that.
Another part of this holiday, Christmas, is decorating. Now mom decorates for all the holidays. Halloween has a lot of decorations. That is nothing compared to Christmas. It takes her days to get it all ready. There are so many boxes dad can’t get around. I don’t mind so much. It’s just more stuff for me to sniff and chew on. Arthur, as always, helped with the decorating.
This time I got to help with the outside decorating.
How’s it look?
Staying outside all day decorating was fun but I’m still waiting to see if Christmas has any of the good stuff like Thanksgiving did….you’ve got it, treats!
It’s another holiday already!
Of course like all holidays it involves some decorating. This holiday doesn’t have many decorations so that’s good. It takes less time.
As usual Arthur helped with the decorating.
The morning of this holiday starts off with television. There was a parade on tv. Mom had it on while she was busy in the kitchen…for the food part of it all.
They call it the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. There were a few parts I found interesting. A lot of interesting noises coming from it…and then came the turkey!
This holiday has a LOT of food. This holiday is for food. The house smelled great! Treats all day and food, food, food!
Of course we had to take pictures first. It was killing me standing still. I just kept thinking of the food. Let’s eat!
I don’t trust that cat.
Hope your Thanksgiving was as filling as mine.
Another great holiday! It’s incredible! All these special days with lots of toys and plenty of treats. Well, maybe not plenty. They could use a little more.
This holiday is celebrated at night with lights and spooky things. I didn’t find any of it spooky, just annoying.
Decorating was fun. As always Arthur helped. He loves helping to decorate. This time I helped too.
Mom preferred I help with the outside decorations. She kept getting mad because I would grab things inside and run off with them. I really loved helping with decorating outside. I would get so excited I would just keep running around the yard, circling mom. Sometimes I would freak her out and at full speed jump over some of the decorations. Now that was spooky..for mom. I loved it. You’d hear her shriek, hold her breath and then sigh. She clearly doesn’t realize what a professional I have become. I didn’t knock one thing over.
Then there were the pictures. I don’t mind pictures because I get treats, but the costume…I could have done without that. But a treat is a treat.
Finally we got down to the good stuff…SURPRISES! Arthur and I dove right in.
There were treats and toys inside. Treats first, of course. Then the toys, but only after I am certain there are no more treats coming.
Then there were more treats..for me.
BOBBING FOR BONES!!!!
What a great day!
Oh NO! Not more pictures!
Someone take the camera away from this woman. She’s out of control.
I wish that stupid wolf would shut up.
By the end of the day Arthur and I were tired. Time to relax.
Mom loves getting pictures of Arthur with the Halloween decorations. She said Halloween is more of a cat’s holiday.
I think Arthur knows it.
