Christmas 2005: A Tail of two Beds

I thought it was about time that I wrote about my first Christmas. I know I'm a little behind, but better late than never! One of my Grammas came to stay with us for Christmas. I have more than one Gramma, so we will call this one Gramma A. Well I first met Gramma A. in November when she came for a visit. I'm not much for visitors, so it took me awhile at first, but then I would be in the same room with her. I was more comfortable at Christmas, and even let her touch me once! So we had Christmas with her. And she brought me presents! Take a look:

First I got this whole bag of goodies!

The pink mousie is my favorite of the bunch so far.

And she got me these really yummy treats! She said it's her job to spoil her only grandchild... I think that's me!! I was so appreciative of these gifts that I let her pet me!

Now comes the story of the beds. Two days before Christmas, Mom and Dad took away the old couches, then some strange men came and brought some new furniture with them! I was glad when they left because they scared me. But even after they were gone I stayed under the bed for awhile, because I just don't like new things. And the whole living room was new! There was lots more stuff in it than there used to be, and Mom and Dad kept moving it around and around and around... finally they got it set, but everything still smelled funny. Anyway, what I didn't realize at first was that they had bought a new big piece of furniture for ME!! It's called a re-cline-er. Sometimes I let Dad sit in it, but mostly it's mine... SEE??

It's a perfect fit for me. With just a little room left for growing!

Anyway, I think they wanted this new bed to be a surprise for me, so they got me a gag gift as well. They tried to tell me that THIS was my new bed... HA!!!:

I'm supposed to do what with this?

I played along for a little bit and even gave them the satisfaction of thinking they had me fooled. This one picture was to appease them.

Mostly, this is how I act around the leopard bed though.

Fortunately it didn't take me to long to figure out their little joke, and now everyone knows where to find me... on my nice comfy green bed. And what do I do with my leopard bed? Keep my toys in it of course!! I mean, which would you choose???

Does this Count?

So I see that Derby asked about kitties that can touch their nose with their tongues. Ms. Mia and Patches showed that they can do it, and know what? I can too! But it's not so easy to get a picture of me doing it. I'm very selective about what I'll do when the camera comes out. You can see here that my tongue is up high enough just over to the side. Does this count Derby????

We've got one too!

Hi everyone. I plan to update about the holidays really soon. But seeing Timothy's recent post made me want to update right away! We've got a bigfoot in our house too! It is somehow attached to my Dad and I do my best to free him from it. It's very hard work. These are some shots of me attacking it before Christmas. It's a bit camera shy, so you can't see the big foot so well, but you can see me working hard!
