Merry Christmas!

BK gave me the best Christmas gift ever, he brought over his family for a visit on the night of Christmas eve! I didn't get any pictures because I didn't want to risk scaring them away.

I recognized Mama Kitty and I think the other one must have been one of the kittens but it seemed kind of big compared to the last time I saw it. It was jet black with a faint white spot on it's chest just like BK and Mama Kitty. If it was a kitten, that doesn't bode well for the other one that was absent. If it wasn't one of the kittens maybe it was a visiting cousin in town for the holiday?! Whoever it was, it was quite friendly with BK and Mama Kitty - definitely family!

All three cats ate together, played in the yard together and hung out at BK's house. So fun to see more of BK's family! I hope they come back for more! Seeing how fast the food bowl went down, it made me wonder if the family is coming over for midnight snacks each night, because every night I fill up the bowl but by morning it's empty.

Earlier on Christmas eve, I arranged for Theo and BK to meet up again. This time it went much more positively. BK was curious but not agressive. Theo was slightly interested. They didn't make physical contact but just hung out together on the porch, looking each other over. I'll take the lack of aggression as a success!


Merry Christmas everyone! I hope your day is filled with many blessings and delightful gifts!!

As I enjoy the holiday with family and friends, my heart also remembers that on this day last year, a fellow cat guy and blogger, Greg_1948 unexpectedly lost his beloved Verty to the Bridge. I also think of Admiral Hestorb's mom who is without her beloved Admiral on this Christmas. And my heart thinks of Parker, enjoying her last Christmas with her family. Prayers and purrs to you all.

  3. We echo your thoughts, dear friend, and when it comes to kitties, silence I guess is golden, especially when there's eye contact and nothing happens too scary. A very Merry Christmas is wished for all of you and our holiday hat is off to you for caring so much for your kitties and your kind-hearted words.

    Hugs,
    Tom, Mittens & mom Julie

  7. Dear friend
    Hoping you are enjoying the Christmas days with your family and beloved furry bundles.
    I am warmed by the thought of each cat lover who so lovingly gives to a cat/s the life it/they truly deserve.
    Thanks for your kind words on God's Little People.
