We had a very quiet weekend around here – the power went off a few times (from 3:30 to 5:30 Saturday morning, and then just a few hours later from 8:30 to 11), but has been back on since then. The house got a bit cool during the power outages, but not too terribly bad. The kitties had plenty of warm, cozy spaces to keep warm (and each other to snuggle up with.) The permanent residents were grumpy about how cold it was outside (and stayed in the house.) Trixie and Rocco spent three days in the garage on their heated beds, and handled it much better than I expected. (With a space heater going, the garage stayed pretty cozy.) All in all, it wasn’t as bad as I’d feared it would be. And we had a sunny Christmas day!
Our friends at Keep Up Creations (Facebook, Instagram) sent us a box of very cool toys which included this catnip block. Kim found it REALLY PRETTY AWESOME. She kicked it around for a long time, and then she staggered off for a really good nap!
Slow motion tuxies. Apparently Saul WILL jump up after a feather teaser – it just has to be the RIGHT feather teaser!
Francesca is having an AWFULLY good time with that blue mouse!
Merry Christmas: the Santa hats!
Merry Christmas: the reindeer hats.
Merry Christmas: the festive ties.
Merry Christmas: the “Eh, just throw a garland up there and wrap it around the kittens, it’ll look good enough” (it does!)
(Note: the garland was just for the pictures. We don’t leave tinsel or garland out where cats can get to it.)
Merry Christmas: Randomly cute.
Lastly (but never leastly) Merry Christmas: the kitty wreaths.
