Decorations

On the Saturday after Thanksgiving I decided to put up the Christmas decorations, so I brought the black and white things down from upstairs and had The Hubs bring down the tree.

The little pink tree goes in my office. We didn’t use the blue ornaments after all.

Philip was very interested to assist with the decorating, so he inspected the tree:

And got an even closer look and a good sniff:

Then he checked out the box to make sure all the important things had been removed:

The Girl wasn’t feeling well so she supervised from the couch. While we were decorating, we put on a video of a Christmas scene that played Christmas music:

Philip did enjoy sitting by the fire in the video!

Here are the finished results — the tree:

I like all these ornaments quite a lot, but the little coat with the skis is SO CUTE! It came from Target.

These little trucks also came from Target. Since The Hubs like trucks, I thought they were appropriate.

Here is the front entry:

And the living room:

More little trucks, these from Hobby Lobby.

Can you find Bigfoot? Also, we have two clocks because the mantel clock belonged to The Hubs’s grandma and it makes him sad to hear the chimes, so we don’t wind it. But he also insists on having a clock there, hence the little alarm clock.

Philip and I wish everyone a festive and peaceful Christmas and holiday season filled with love and joy!

Adventures in Eating

When I was at Copper Creek Mercantile the other day buying cat food, Jen told me that they had something new. When she showed it to me I knew I had to get a can for Philip to try.

Can you imagine?

Here is what the food looks like:

Pretty normal looking pâté-style cat food.

Now, I don’t know if Philip’s mama kitty ever brought him a mouse to eat when they were still living outside, but Philip didn’t want this. He would barely even get near it. He jumped down and went away until I got out some of his regular, non-pâté food. He likes his food to have chunks, like real chicken or fish, and he has never been a fan of the pâté style. There really isn’t any way of knowing whether he rejected it because of the mouse, other ingredients, or the style of the food, but Philip says no, thank you.

Philip enjoys biting Lamby and doing bunny-kicks. Lamby keeps our arms free from bites and scratches. Lamby is a good sport!

Meow There!

Philip

Meow there! Welcome to my blogger!! I am Philip. Mama said I could blogger today, so here I am. I am a big kitty now and I weigh 13 weight-thingies , but I used to be a little baby so Mama and Daddy still call me their little baby. Here is a picsher of me when I was a little baby, after Daddy rescueded me from the outdoors place. Before Daddy rescueded me I was living under one of his trucks where my Mama Kitty had put me, but I wasn’t having safety. Daddy put out a thing with some delishus noms in it and I came in to eat the noms and then I couldn’t go out again! Then Daddy brought me in the house place and I am now what is called a house cat! I am very speshul to Daddy espeshully because he rescueded me himself!

Me after I came to live in the house place.

Here are some picshers of me when I was a tiny baby living in the outdoors place.

Me when I was in the outdoors place, eating crunchers.
Me eating crunchers with my Mama Kitty. Isn’t she a bootiful lady?

My Mama Kitty took good care of me and she did her best to keep me safe, but she didn’t have a house to live in or a Mama and Daddy to take care of her. My Mama and Daddy gave her crunchers to eat every day and drinks in the drinks bowl.

But guess what happened? My Mama Kitty had FIVE more little babies in Daddy’s shed! He found them and brought them in the house, but he wouldn’t let me see them because he thought I might try to play with them and I probly would have, and they were just tiny little tiny babies. Then Daddy put out some delishus noms and my Mama Kitty went in to eat them and couldn’t get out! So Mama and Daddy brought her in the house place with her tiny little tiny babies so she could take care of them. Soon Mama took my Mama Kitty and my tiny little tiny sibleengs to a place called Salem Friends of Felines. The nice ladies there took my Mama Kitty and the tiny little tiny babies to what is called a pawster home, where they got to live in a house place just like I do! Then the nice ladies found good house places for my Mama Kitty and all the tiny little babies so they could be house cats too! I was so glad when Mama told me that they were all being loved and cared for just like my Mama and Daddy care for me!

Here are more photos of me being a happy house cat:

Me when I was little playing with my Lamby. I still like to play with Lamby and he is a good sport!
