We’ve great news! Mom became nocturnal and spends her nights with us! She doesn’t appreciate her new style of life though, and says that it isn’t funny to cough all night. However, she’s feeling better for each day, so don’t feel sorry for her (it only makes her lazy and demanding). Thank you for all your greetings and wishes: Mom will answer you soon.
Now to the important part – it’s Boxing Day! All boxes belong to cats, so it’s today we celebrate Catmas. I wanted to go petite this year.
Mom thinks that this box is too small for me…. I don’t agree.
Mom is very sick and coughing on the sofa, so I thought that I’d help Granny instead. She often laughs when she sees me, so I guess she’ll be happy to get some helping paws.
Talking of helping paws: you probably know that many Europeans celebrate Christmas on Christmas Eve. Mom’s family will meet at her brother’s place at about 5 pm. Mom is feeling so bad that she thinks about staying at home with Kajsa and me. Sounds like a great plan to us, but her family wants her to come so that Mom isn’t alone on Christmas Eve.
Alone?!? Mom tried to tell her family that she has wonderful company, but apparently we are “only two cats” and don’t count. ??
We are young and innocent cats, and we’re still learning about this Christmas thing. We were thrilled when we heard rumors about this climbing Santa dude and flying angels – who would have thought that these guys were so much fun??
Oops. This angel can’t fly?
Oh. Santa can’t climb?
Very weird. This angel can’t fly EITHER?
Good morning, Mom, great that you’re awake, we wanted to ask why …. WHAT are you grumbling? … Yes, we played with the angels and Santa, but …. WHAT??????
You know when your human is really excited and gets a lot of things from different rooms such as tape, a bread knife (best saw for cardboard), scissors, strings, boxes, a chair that you can turn into a ladder, pillows, blankets and a camera to document every bit of it? And you’re like Oh well, as long as she doesn’t take my scratching pad?
I guess I’m lucky that she also left the green armchair in peace.
I dunno why Mom is looking at me with joy and anticipation, but I’m quite comfy here. I’d appreciate if she’d deal with Granny though – she started complaining that “her” living room looks worse than it did when Mom was a kid and had her toys spread all over the place?
What, Mom? I know that I never sit on your lap. I like it when you lay down, but your lap is not good enough for me. Granny’s again is perfect, I want to sit here for hours! Now get lost and leave us alone.
You may continue tickling me now, Granny, I think I made my point.
Did you know that Dreamies / Temptations are called Catisfaction in Germany? A funny name, but we’re not satisfied as long as this bag is closed.
Now that’s better.
Hmpf. Stupid Kajsa doesn’t want me to sniff.
Attack! Stupid Tessa is still on the table!
Hehe. It’s always the same with Kajsa. When our Queen of Drama gets annoyed, she throws a tantrum and disappears to sulk somewhere. It doesn’t matter what she was initially fighting for; a toy, Mom’s chest, the closet, treats…. She gets so angry that she doesn’t want it anymore.
Oh, I love this box on top of the cupboard. It’s one of my favorite beds, but why on earth did Mom put it there if she didn’t want me to sleep in it??
It’s not my fault that I have to jump on the kitchen table when I want to get down. And it’s not my fault that Granny likes to sit there with her crosswords. And it certainly isn’t my fault that she forgets that she’s two cats now, and that I like to sleep on the cupboard.
So when I jump on her crossword after some good hours sleep, and Granny starts behaving like slaughtered people in a horror movie, why does Mom look at me??????
Feline friends! Thank you for all your thoughts yesterday (well, except for Punapippuri’s and Flynn’scomments)! When we heard people constantly complaining at our destination, we knew immediately that we were once again inMäuschen-Germany. We mean, we like being at Granny’s, but we don’t like traveling.
The food was ok though
But Tessa was sulking on her favorite armchair.
Kajsa again made sure to catify Granny’s place, and opened every cupboard.
She was also interested in Granny’s Christmas decoration
Good thing that Grandpa bought extra glasses ……… (and no, obviously the candle wasn’t burning)
Oh yes, yesterday’s letters were indeed interesting! Mom fell in love with a postcard from Granny, and tried to get a cheesy picture of me.
When you’re in trouble, I’ll be there for you
She was so very satisfied with this perfect picture: such a sweet caring tender darling cat! You probably already guessed that I was only sniffing at the card to see if it was something to play with, and oh, you bet it was!
Mom tried to rescue her precious card from me, and blamed me for destroying the moment. Let’s put it that way – in the opposite to her, I read the card properly, and she suddenly realized her mistake. The card actually says:
Whenever you need trouble, I’ll be there for you.
Hehe. Granny has 4 children, 4 grandchildren and Kajsa and me, so she definitely knows much more about life than our romantic-silly Mom.
