Confessions

Mom's Confession:

I know you're all dying to see pictures of my giant kitten playing with his X-Mas toys. You'll notice the post is picture free. Sure I could be blamed by Quill for my lack of quick wits in getting the shot. But to be far I really didn't have time to prepare...

Santa's Helper (A.K.A Caren and Cody) had a contest where we won a cool stocking full of loot. Stuffed with treats and reindeer mice. So cute!

Anyway I tucked it back in the packing box till X-Mas morning, and stuck it in the bookcase in my office. So when I heard Quill playing around in the corner I wasn't putting it together at all. By the time I turned around he had knocked the box on the floor, pulled out stocking, and was bunny-kicking the whole thing.

I tried to grab it back and he wrestled me for it. What with the claws and jaws - he won. You see our boy gets a bit aggressive on the nip. So I must dole out the hooch in minimal doses. So the rest of his toys are going to be a slow and steady passing out.

I will try to re-capture the joy of the moment in subsequent photo ops...

Quill's Confession:

All rumors of my nip, eh, problem are greatly exaggerated. Did I claw at my Mom? Yes, but I thought she was taking away my toys and all the Temptations. And yes, I did chew her a little after she cut off the reindeer mice tails... something about my chewing them off and eating them.

I did tip over the trash and get them back though. Sadly she caught me and removed them.

I gave my family a present on Christmas morning too. Right after breakfast, I expelled my first hairball. No it did not contain a reindeer mouse tail.

Way to go Quill! You are definitely master of your home. **High Paws**

BeadHappy said...

Lol, that's why my Ralphie doesn't get mice that often - cause he loves to eat the tails. Silly goof.

Sparkle said...

You had quite the holiday adventure, Quill! Too bad your human was not able to get photos... although I am not sure they would have been as good as what I am picturing in my head!

Marg said...

Oh Quill, good job getting those toys in your claws and fighting the Mom off. That will teach her to make you wait for your pressies. Love this story. MOL. Take care.

Simba said...

You sound like quite the handful, Quill. Fun to see a kitty so enthused, though.

Jenna and Sissy said...

Quill, you are incorrigible. I'm a mean drunk, too. I do like me some nip :)

We're sorry to hear your human cut off the mousie tails--that just isn't right!

Mary Sheehan Winn said...

this is Wolfie and Abba's mama and I busted a gut picturing your Chrismas :D
Personally, I'd like to see a picture of the hairball ;)

Oh, my! Finny would've been so proud of you Quill!

Old kitty Wart wants to know: "OK. I have to come down from the Twilight Zone for a minute and ask you a question. Is there a hairball fairy that comes and cleans up the hairball and then leaves you a coin? I should know about this."
Sorry, he had to ask. - Jobi

Quill you are a handful. Tuiren is turning out to be a handful too.

Derby, Ducky said...

Good job getting your toys! We would have loved to see a hairball with a reindeer mouse tail in it.

Kitshka: my hero, Quill... <3

Texas: so you too are being falsely accused of having an addiction to nip. Humans...

ConCats on your first successful hairball ejection, Quill :)

Uh-oh, this sounds like a contest to see which one of you can annoy the other the most. :)
