Christmas Tree .

Esme , "Hmmm. Daddyman and LP bought a Christmas tree. It smells delicious. They hardly put any decorations on it though this year. No breakables. None at all. Absolutely not! Not with kittens! They just kinda wrapped this huge ribbon around the tree with a few ornaments here and there.So far the kittens haven't touched a thing! No interest whatsoever. "

Esme , " I guess I'll get started on this ribbon then. It shouldn't take me too long to unwind, rip and shred it. Someone has to show those kittens how to celebrate! "

Merry Christmas to each and every one of you! May your holiday be filled with good cheer, friends, family and an abundance of lasting love. A warm thank you to those of you who sent us cards both through cyber space and snail mail. We appreciate each and every one of your friendships. This blogging community of animal lovers reminds us even on the bleakest of days, to keep on the sunny side of the street! Thank you for that.
We are off to visit family in sunny California for Christmas and this is our last post before our departure. We will be back to bring in the New Year with you. Until then, stay safe , warm and happy.

Christmas in the Foster Room .

Leo , " I was thinking of Christmas and wondering when LP was going to make it look like Christmas in here. I never used to celebrate Christmas when I lived on the streets but now that I have a foster home , I do. Celebrate that is ."

Leo , " Then this morning LP came into our room and started decorating just as if she read my mind! "

Leo, " She hung the tiny stockings I love so much ."

Leo , " And she put up our little Charlie Brown Christmas tree with the little bird ornaments amongst other favourites ."

Tulip , " I love the Peace Dove . And the vintage Christmas plaque ."

Tulip , " Actually , I love everything about Christmas ! I can't wait for Santa Paws to get here! "

Leo , " I'm going to keep our Christmas booties nearby so that Santa Paws doesn't miss them ."

Leo , " And in the meantime , I'm going to settle down to a long winter's nap while visions of sugar- plums  dance in my head ."

Have a marvelous Monday!
See you soon.

Have a wonderful Wednesday.
See you soon.

Kitten Perks.

Mitalee , " See my new pink blanket ? "

Mitalee , " It's just the right softness for my fur cleansing . "

Mitalee , " Since the kittens arrival it seems there are new , soft , little blankets everywhere."

Mitalee , " Like this one , for example. I'm thinking they are all here for me ... since I am the eldest."

Mitalee, " That's how these things usually work ... wouldn't you agree ?"

Have a marvelous Monday !
See you soon.

Bunny Beach .

LP, " There is a beach not too far from where we live whose hillsides are dotted with rabbits -not hares which are indigenous to Canadian wildlife. These rabbits are the product of irresponsible owners who grew tired of them and then set them free. Since they are not neutered or spayed they are prolific. They are healthy and well fed by caring park goers and are thriving in our mild climate but are not living in the safety of family life.Their numbers and well being will no doubt be a problem in the future but in the meantime, they are lovely to watch hippity hopping on the bunny beach."

Duffy , " I wonder if any of those beach bunnies would like to be my friend ?! "

Issa , " After we bunny watched we counted the seagulls on the dock. Later we admired the view , then we reluctantly went home ."

Have a wonderful day and weekend!
See you Monday.
