Eating Habits

Some might find this disgusting. Others may find it funny. But, seriously - - please don't believe we would actually feed a cat from our table.

OK, we might do that. But, we would never feed the cats directly from our own forks...

At least we haven't yet.

I can't seem to get over the fact that Christmas is over and we're facing a loooooong winter. But, looking on the bright side, I've got my own li'l family and a lot of great friends (just like family) who will help me get threw it...

Anyway, I got a kick out spending time back home with the family (wish I was still there) and I thought I'd post some various pics...

Dad was our guinea pig - here he is in the new sweatbands my sister got him:

And a stocking cap - I liked his placement of the hat:

Mother - cooking us dinner before we left:

My sister and her cats:

And - finally, their cats:

Kitty Christmas

We had a great Christmas weekend. Got to see everyone's families and really enjoyed ourselves. The only problem is it goes by so fast.

Here are some pics of our kitties' little Christmas before we left for the weekend.

Christmas Kitties

I bought an early Christmas/no-reason-at-all gift for us - a new digital camera! I was so excited I took a million zillion pictures last night. And the kitties helped us wrap our gifts. I still haven't perfected the red eye stuff yet. Right now I'm getting some very glowy eye shots. Not red - just glowy.

Christmas. Christmas is coming this weekend. My tree is still in the same shape it was last time I blogged about it. Well, I take that back - it's probably a little more bent and ugly than it was before and still has a cat in it every night but still no Christmas lights or decorations. Makes me feel weird. Makes me have to admit how lazy I am. After asking my husband almost every night: "Are we going to decorate the tree?" And he'd reply: "How will we keep the friggin' cat away?" (OK, not his exact words, probably mine.) Yeah, can you imagine how much yelling and water spraying and unhappiness we'd go through trying to keep that cat off the tree? And, to top it off, visions of National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation are dancing in my head of "fried pussycat". Afraid one of my own will bite through the cords. A friend of mine says she had a bunny that did just that and survived...

I've kept this debate going in my head and with my husband and with my friends and now - it seems too late. I'm lazy. Do I want to decorate the tree just to tear it down in less than a week?

And I haven't watched my special Christmas shows. I've recorded some on my TiVo thingy and some of the others I own. I'm a little kid. I own the classic Christmas shows and Disney movies (even though my husband tells me Disney is evil and corporate and something-or-other but, somehow, if a Disney movie is on my wish list - it ends up being mine.)

I haven't listened to my Christmas music either (which we usually listen to as we decorate our house and the tree).

So, I haven't done a lot of my Christmassy things and it doesn't feel a lot like Christmas so far. But, I've been thinking about it. I can't wait for Christmas this year. I'm really looking forward to seeing my family and continuing our traditions 'cause my mother always made sure we had the best Christmas we could have. And I'm excited that I'll get to enjoy some time with my friends and start some new traditions and, damnit, I'm sappy, but I just can't wait for Christmas. I'll try to stay off the sauce and not go around singing and petting people.

My favorite kitty

I think I'd make you throw up if I tried to explain how much I love this little kitten.

Live Nude Cats

Click on the title to this blog entry to go to the website - I have no idea how I did it but I've linked the site to the title of this blog. I'm no computer programmer/website-maker-upper.

That is, click the link if you're interested in this cute, fuzzy calendar I saw the other day - it would make a perfect gift for any cat lover you know. ;0)

Christmas Tree (puke)

This is why my Christmas tree is up and not yet decorated. We may decide to take it down soon and skip the tree this year. This is not Lucky's first Christmas. But, this year he seems overly obsessed with the tree. The other morning, I found Christmas tree puke on the floor in the den. Someone is overindulging!! Can you imagine if we had a live tree???

Mike is 6' tall....Lucky climbed almost to the top of the tree.

If you look closely at the picture below, you'll see that he's licking the tree.

Goofy Fortune

We went to a buffet today at lunch. If anyone can explain this to me, I'd be glad to hear it.
