3. One holiday memory I cherish is my first Christmas when the female human wrote a poem for me.

black and white Christmas kitten”Twas two nights after Christmas
And kittens so young
Were destroying gift paper
And having some fun.

The humans were snuggled all warm in their bed,
And felines so spoiled had been very well fed.

When what to their wondering eyes should appear,
But a guest in the garden, a beautiful deer.

He munched and he snacked
On the nice cherry tree
Then turned toward the porch,
The kittens to see.

And then those deer hooves made such a clatter
The felines, so scared all jumped and then scattered.

And they heard the deer say
As he walked back to the woods,
“Merry Christmas small kittens
Now try to be good!”

4. I always thought that Santa was a human, but I’m beginning to wonder if Lily is the real Santa!

  4. Fabulous poem. Loved seeing the picture of the racoons as we don’t have those in Scotland – if we did I’m sure Princess Cookie Cat would love to keep an eye on them out the window. Great answers to the fill ins.

  6. Fun!

    Snow keeps falling!

    I enjoy sitting on the sofa in front of the fire with the furries.

    One holiday memory that I cherish is waking up on Christmas morning to see what Santa had brought for my siblings and I. .

    I always thought that Santa…….hmmmm………I always thought that Santa did well to stay so quiet and not wake my family when he landed the sleigh on our roof. Plus, very clever to squeeze himself down the chimney of our woodstove!

  7. Wow! People love participating in your fill in the blanks! Snow blankets the drabness of winter with it’s own dazzle. I enjoy the snow with my American Eskimo Gusto. The holiday memories that I cherish are from my childhood and opening up presents around the Christmas tree. We are expecting a picture of Gusto with Santa to arrive any day now…lol.

    • Thanks for purrticipating,
      We’ve heard that Santa is jolly but we have yet to meet him. Every Christmas we sit by the fireplace hoping he’ll come down the chimney, still hasn’t happened. I refuse to believe that it’s because we haven’t been good kitties all year.
      Purrs & Head Bonks,


  8. What a fun post!

    1. Snow gives me season envy! We live in California where it doesn’t snow, but I think Rooney would love the snow. Our goal is to visit it this year!

    2. I love Christmas and walking Rooney around the neighborhood to see the lights!

    3. One holiday memory that I cherish is the Christmas that I got my puppy Rocky, he was such a special and wonderful dog, he was in our wedding!

    4. I always thought that Santa was my mom. 🙂

    • Great fill ins! If you come to where we live (Sandpoint, Idaho), there is a big beautiful lake and a beach called Dog Beach where, you guessed it, dogs are welcome! Of course if you come in winter, there’s a lot of snow!
