A Cat Wanted Her Presents
We had a very finicky cat that would punish us every time she got a bath. Three days before Christmas right after a bath she went missing. We looked the house over and she couldn’t be found. We decided she must have slipped out while we were bringing in presents or groceries. It was a sad time as we had had this cat for 7 years and she was an important member of the family- my daughters were devastated. Our cat “Fancy” was gone!
We even put out food outside and inside and it wasn’t touched. On Christmas morning my oldest daughter was sitting at the bottom of the tree giving out presents. And she picked up one that had Fancy’s name on it my daughter said what are we going to do with Fancy’s stuff? About that time Fancy started meowing and started climbing down the Christmas tree. I guess it didn’t matter how mad she was about the bath, she wasn’t letting another cat get her presents!
Baptized the Christmas Tree
When I was single, I had an Airedale mix who went everywhere with me. He was very polite and never lifted his leg so I never gave any thought to taking him to a friend’s house for a Christmas party – oh, yeah – he found the Christmas tree and “baptized” it in their living room! It was really good my friends had a sense of humor because we spent most of the night laughing about it and Fred (my dog) just looked at us like we were all nuts!
