After X-Mas

Sandy Claws arrived and it seems I wasn't forgotten (or that naughty either). I received a giant box, big enough for a sizable cat to stand fully upright (sweet), a large ribbon, a fresh bag of nip so I can have all my mice re-nipped, and a new mouse too (when you pull his tail, he scoots across the floor).

Oh and the very best present - I got a copy of my friend PsychoKitty/Max's book "The Rules - A Guide for People Owned by Cats." Here I am waiting for my family to curl up on the couch and read it with me (there are even cool drawings so humans will be able to understand the rules).

Wow my couch looks like a crazy test pattern in this photo.

Psst - Okay kitties I'm still trying to be well behaved because next week is my birthday (sorta), and I'm hoping for more loot, but I have to say that I'm a little suspicious about the box present. I'm pretty sure it's the box Mommy's present came in - I'm just saying.

So it's sorta my birthday on New Year's Day. I say "sorta" because my exact birthday is unknown. My Gotcha Day was mid-February and when Mommy counted back she figured it was about January 1st, so we went with that. On Monday I'm going announce a little something special I have planned for my birthday celebration. A little game my friends can play along with too, if they want, until then I will be encouraging my parents to hit the after X-Mas Sale at Petsmart.

Fin, I think you look pretty good against your test pattern couch-I'm just sayin'. And I'd be a little suspicious about that box present, too! But, what the hey! It's still fun to play in, huh?

I say a box present is great no matter where it comes from. It would be nice if your mom decorated it a little bit, though.

I look forward to your birthday!

I think boxes make great presents! I'd rather play with a box than anything! We can't wait for your (sorta) birthday, Fin!

Oh yay! Someone's gonna read my book! I hope it helps your People. Mine helped me write the freaking thing and they still don't get it...

Can't wait until your sorta birthday. Love boxes - they are presents by themselves!

A box is a box, really. And the rest of your presents sound good to me. I can't wait to hear about the birthday game!

Happy holidays!

We usually like the box better than what's inside it anyway, Fin!

Mom had to guess our birth date, too. We both have the same Birthday since we both have the same Gotcha Day!

Boxes are great purresents specially when they are upside down and have holes cut in them for you to go in and hide. They are even better when your brother is too fat, err muscular, to get in there too.

Fin, your pressies sound pawsome! We only got one little toy to share (!!!) and we don't even like it. Mom got the Aristocats DVD though and we love it! We miss you too and are looking forward to going back home in the new year. It's a bit boring here, but we cuddle a lot and that makes time go by...

I'm glad you had such a nice Christmas and got that cool box and book!

Woohoo - a birthday!

P.S. I think you look lovely lying on that test pattern. :)

All of our birthdays are guesstimates too, except my brother Madison...he's the only one we actually know. The rest of us are either based on Gotcha days or when they think we might have been born...for me, I was a tiny kitten in mid-April...so I was tagged with an April 1st birthday, but I'm no fool. Really.

Evie/VampyVictor said...

I thinks you iz a whole big pressie every day to the beans so therefore they should return your everyday gift with one of equal significance!... Oh woah can you just imagine how big that would be!?!? :)

Aaah Fin, how majestic you are resting upon the couch. I see your saucy paw tufts too. I am most relieved that you received such a grand haul of presents. The scooty mouse sounds like a wild toy indeed. A birthday on New Years Day is a very special birthday.

PS: The best boxes are the ready used ones, new boxes are just plain wrong.

I bet your mom picked the perfect box for you first, and then just accepted whatever gift would fit in it for her.

Glad you liked CCSI IV!
