Christmas Day

Christmas Day was a nice quiet day for the kitties as I was gone most of the day.  When I got home, I put their gift from their cousin Jack in the middle of the living room.  It makes noises when it moves. 

How do I know it makes noises?  I hear all the time EXCEPT when I'm in the living room.

Holidays Mean More Naps

I wonder if I should get a new A/C-Heat unit.  The kitties act as though it is 20 degrees in here.  They are all cuddled up (separately not together) and nap like there is no tomorrow. 

I like it warm inside.  As in barefeet warm - I admit I've taken to wearing spa socks inside because they feel so sooo good and as a side benefit, they are warm.  
I added 2 blankets to my bed and the kitties have their winter blankets as well.  And lately, they both cuddle up next to me during the night.  Until their breakfast time anyway. 
Sam moves from place to place to snooze.   Millie stays in the middle of my bed.  She can be quite vocal when I make her move so I can get in. 

Sam tried to sleep on top of the couch but the slick throw had him almost upside down and slowing falling to the cushion.  Of course I woke him up when I went to get the camera. Just like in the photo above.   Which by the way, he is responsible for all the strings under the bed.  I certainly do not go under the bed. 

Oh, I checked.  And it's 70 degrees in here.  Good thing we aren't going to have any of that snow stuff for Christmas.

Merry Christmas to Yall.

No Hissing - No Growling - No Swatting - Are the Kitties Sick?

Nooooo.   They are on their best behavior for Christmas!
Both of them have been coming out at the same time to lounge in the living room although Sam does stay longer.
  Sam has been napping close to Millie lately - not within swatting range but close.  Sometimes when I can't find Sam, I hunt for Millie in her ultimate favorite spot for now - in the smack dab middle of my new lap blanket that I hurridly put on the bed late one night instead of hunting for a large quilt or blanket (I was COLD that night and didn't feel like walking down the cold cold hallway).   If Sam isn't snuggling on the lap blanket (note that I said blanket - not with Millie) then he is under the bed napping or playing with the strings on the bottom of the box spring.  In self defense it must be noted that there were NO strings before Sam started napping/hiding/practicing hunting skills while under the bed.

This is Millie's old favorite throw.  It was in a chair and was supposed to help keep her fur from being all over the chair.  So when I took it off to wash, she found it on the floor and took her naps on the floor in the living room.  It took a few days before I could wash it.

Is Santa Here Yet?

Yes, there is a fireplace but both cats ignore it.  I guess Sam thinks Santa will come to the front door?
