Look out 2009, here I come!
It was so much fun to participate in the Secret Paws and the Kitty Christmas Card Exchange this year! Mom finally finished helping me scan all of my cards and I wanted to share them with you!
This was my special Christmas card this year.
You may need to bigify the collages to see all of my friends. Thank you for taking the time to send me a card. I had more cards than mom!
What do you mean we still have to scan in the Christmas Cards?
It's Sunday! We must get our rest.
What do you mean "you have work to do?"
Mom spent her time with some woofies!!! I have been betrayed!!
And then to top things off, she went to a movie about a woofie (Marley and Me) with her parents. I think mom has spent entirely too much time with the woofies, don't you? I think it's time to leave a surprise on the carpet again.
When she gets home, we'll watch some Christmas movies and have some hot chocolate with candy cane stirrers!
Yesterday, I teased you with the box and unopened presents, so today, I will share my presents with you.

My Mom had left her teaching job (middle school mathematics) to go back to school to earn her Ph.D. At the same time, she was going through a divorce after 21 years of marriage. When her husband left, he took their 17 year old cat Muff with him. Needless to say, mom was a little "blue." Her husband and Muff had been gone for approximately 13 months when mom started getting the itch to get another kitty. She spent Thanksgiving weekend with her sister and they began talking about another cat. Mom began looking in the papers to see if she could find a Himmie or a Persian available. She said there was an ad for some Himmies in the paper and when she called, they were all gone.
That is when I turned on the charm. As soon as I was in Mom's arms, I licked my mom's face (I still do this) and began purring. Mom said she walked around the store for almost an hour holding me and I fell asleep in her arms. The nice lady introduced my Mom to my fur dad, Little Tiger of Harbison (a red tabby Persian) and my fur mom, Chocolate Baby (a seal point Himalayan). Mom said she kept debating if she could afford me and finally asked the nice lady if she took credit cards. The nice lady said, "yes" and Mom said, "I'll take her."
Mom took me by to meet my grandbeans and then we traveled 2 1/2 hours to go to my forever home.

Now if I can just figure out how to open this bag . . .
