Merry Christmas to All!


Christmas is almost upon us. I like to retain the Spirit of the season through all Twelve Days, though it’s difficult as eleven of them are no longer celebrated much. It used to be that Christmas would start on December 25th, not just be on that date. Regardless of modern modes, the Yuletide remains my favourite holiday, and my beasts and I have traditions that we follow each year.

One of them is the making of the Christmas card, which I send to family and friends, and share with the Cat Blogosphere. It always has something to do with my cats - no surprise - and this time Tungsten takes the spotlight.

This year, I miss my friend Bear Bear, who died in February. He wasn’t with us for long, but the impression he made will last a lifetime. Cammie left us but returned, thank goodness, after an adventure in how not to adopt a cat. And now Kola shares our home, and will enjoy Christmas with us.

I will be writing again during the holidays, but not until after Boxing Day, so I will wish everyone - human, feline, canine and of any other description - a merry Christmas. May this wonderful time of year be truly full of wonder for you and yours.

    1. Thank you for your compliment. I saw your card on your site earlier and pointed it out to some friends at work as an example of what I like about feline/family Christmas cards. What a great way to celebrate togetherness at the holidays.

  8. Wonderful card! Tungsten's expression is absolutely delightful. She IS wishing very hard. We hope her wishes come true and hearts everywhere are filled with peace and contentment.
    Thank you for asking about Spirit. He is at home, on very strong pain medication so our Christmas light is a bit dimmed this year. Christmas blessings to you and yours.

    1. I'm sorry Spirit has to take medicine for his pain, but am glad that he's home. Bering away from their human is of course very stressful, and having you near is undoubtedly as good a medicine as any veterinarian could prescribe.

      May your Christmas grow better and better through the season.

  10. These cards are truly lovely! Lucky people are those who receive one. We hope you and the dear cats have a merry Christmas with much joy. And lots of presents for the kitties. Jessica got her present this evening; a new soft brush and some catnip. She has been trying to open the gift for days. From Eileen and Jessica
