Christmas, as Garrett Morris might have said, was Berry Berry Good for the cats this year.
You can see how satisfied Jacoby looks as he surveys the spoils.
Tessie got, among other things, two refurbished Kittenator Neko Flies toys. She’d torn all the original fur off of them, so I re-furred them for her.
She prefers her Kittenators off the rod.
Kylie was just overwhelmed by all the goodies.
One of the toys the cats got was a nifty little treat puzzle toy from, of all places, Target. Tessie was the first to check it out.
She got bored with it pretty quickly, though. She didn’t even eat the treats!
Guess who didn’t get bored with the new toy?
Jake quickly sussed out what the point of the toy was and got to work.
Nom, nom, nom…
My husband got a remote-controlled helicopter as one of his gifts. Jake shared it with him.
Or he tried to share it, anyway…
Jake also got a fabulous Buddy the Elf cat hat from Etsy’s ScooterKnits. This is the same person who made Jake’s mistletoe hat and his pom-pom hat.
Like his other hats, Jake modeled his new elf hat proudly. “Buddy the Elf, what’s your favourite colour?”
Angel got an elf hat, too. Hers is a replica of Jovie’s elf hat.
Angel, however, did not model her hat as proudly as Jake did his.
She much preferred her other gifts. She got a collection of toys…
…and a new catnip mat.
I got an awesome present, too – two plush Abyssinians from Japan! They’re roughly life-sized and oh, so soft. They’re called 癒しねこは、本物そっくりのかわいい猫のぬいぐるみです(アビシニアン), which, according to Google, translates roughly as “Healing lifelike cat”…Proving once again that all the best Abyssinian things seem to come from Japan.
One has open eyes and one is sleeping. They both have fabulous detail, including little black paw pads. They were also quite happy to wear Jake and Angel’s elf hats!
Although snow was predicted for Christmas Day, we did not get any significant snow here in Boston. This was closest Jake got to having a White Christmas…
