Yes Virginia, there is a Santa Claus!

Good evening all!

Well, Mom took me to see Santa Paws this morning, and I was very well behaved!! As soon as we walked in, I got soooooo much attention. Everyone thought I was adorable in my little dress & in my stroller. Mom says I was amazing with Santa! The only thing is that the photographer had a hard time getting a good picture of me because I was more interested in sniffing Santa's beard and face. I smelled sooo many doggies and kitties on him - it was a lot more exciting than having a picture taken. Sadly, we are unable to view the photos online like the other years. They have a different photographer this year unfortunately, so we'll have to wait a couple weeks to get them. The other one was amazing. Mom was a little sad because the event reminded her of when she used to take Mr. Fluffy. At least it was at another location, otherwise, she thinks it would have been too hard.

After the event, Mom and I went to the pet store (Pet Smart) to buy some litter for me. The pet store allows vaccinated pets. It was my first time there, and I had a great time cruising the isles. What a busy day I had!!!

Anyway, today was also the first snow fall of the season! Mom actually put up a few Christmas decorations (I know, it IS early)... She also finished up her Xmas shopping and is ready to start wrapping everything. I still say it's too early for all this...

Here are a few pics of me checking things out!


Mom says I look like a character right out of an X-Files episode with my glowing green eyes!

Mom made this decoration when she was 8 years old in 3rd grade! That was 21 years ago,and it is still in good shape. Pretty amazing for something made out of a toilet paper roll! haha...

Prada started hanging out in the sink... Funny enough, Mr. Fluffy used to do the same. Speaking of Mr. Fluffy, I was looking at his pictures, and lately, it feels as though life was so much better when he was around - it was a much happier time. If you have seen "Fried Green Tomatoes" (one of my favourite movies), it reminds me of when Ruth died - the whole town died right along with her. Same as Fluffy. He captured a lot of hearts, and when he went, everyone else did too. There was something very special about my little guy, and nobody or anything could ever replace the special soul he was. As much as I love my beautiful little girl, she doesn't capture people's hearts like he did. And honestly, if anything, I think she makes people want to stay away because of her rough play. I sure do miss my little guy... along with all the positive energy he brought into our lives. It seems so unfair. I can barely even stand my apartment because it reminds me too much of his last days here.

On another note, like brother, like sister....

Secrets revealed...

I have a very sweet side people (unfortunately) don't get to see often. I LOVE to give kisses and wash people. I don't like to show this side, but Mom managed to capture a very sweet moment. How dare she... (She was getting ready for bed here... she asks not to mind the crazy hair. hehe...)

Lip kisses of course. Sometimes I try to "french kiss", but Mom doesn't like that too much... (at least not with a cat) ;)

Nose kisses!

Side kisses! (hehe)

Forehead kisses!

Long weekend for me, short weekend for Mom

Well, Mom is finally home with me now. As you recall, she went to visit Grandma without me this weekend. I was sooooo happy when she got back. I started meowing even before Mom opened the door. Mom felt bad that she didn't leave me more water. She was only gone overnight, but I had no water left in my bowl and my food dish was quite empty too. Next time, she will have to get a sitter to come check on me. Hopefully, I'll be able to go too though. Mom spent some time with Maya and I guess Grandma got her a party dress too!

Mom had a great weekend with her mom and aunts. She got some Xmas shopping done, and only has a few more things to get now. She says it felt like such a short weekend though, and has a LOT of work to do since report cards are coming out and parent-teacher interviews are coming up. This will be her first time doing these, so she is a little nervous.

On another note, Mom is getting anxious for her 3rd annual Xmas Bird Count which is next month. She and her birding partner have been assigned to the downtown core these past couple years, but they would like a more "nature'ish" location. They would like to see more than Gulls and Pigeons this year. The sewage lagoon would be ideal. As "fun" as it is to walk around on "beach whistles" (tampons), there really is a nice assortment of birds to be found in these spots! Fingers crossed.

Anyway, here are some pictures of Cousin Maya!

You can't really see, but the front of the dress says "Mrs. Paws" :)

If looks could kill, huh? hehehe... Maya is a very sweet kitty though. :)

Mrs. Maya Paws! :)

Pretty holiday dress!

Well, Mom succeeded in making me wear my holiday dress with minimal struggle. I have to admit that I am pretty darn cute in it. Also, news has it that Santa has my favourite rubber balls in his workshop after all! Could that mean that I just might get some for Xmas?? Paws crossed.

Lest we forget...

It is Rememberance Day here in Canada. Of course Mom had the day off, and we got to spend some quality time together which is good. She has to work tomorrow, and she's going to visit grandma this weekend. I have to stay behind by myself unfortunately because Mom is taking her aunt with her and meeting some family in the city before going to the country to Grandma's house. I'm a little sad because I was told I would get to play with Maya this weekend. Oh well...

So the big news with us right now is that we got a new car! She had a 2004 VW Beetle convertible before, but the warranty ended and was faced with continuous expensive repairs, so she figured the best thing was to trade it in before the really big issues started (engine, transmission, etc.) We just got our new car last night, and Mom was already starting to miss the convertible, but she had to face the realities of an aging car. We now have a new 2010 Chev Cobalt LT, and Mom is very satisfied with her purchase so far. At least there is much more trunk room, 2 sets of tires included (winter and all seasons), much better gas milleage, and of course all parts in working order! She didn't really want to go with black since her first car was black, but for some reason, the other two colours were significantly more expensive. Mom can't wait to take it for a good drive this weekend!

Well, time for my nap now! Here is a picture of our new car! :)

Hi everyone,

In just a couple short weeks, I will be visiting Santa Claws for my first time (after all, it will be my first Xmas)! I guess Mr. Fluffy has been going the past few years and was an absolute angel. For some reason, Mom is a little more nervous about taking me. Can you believe she actually thinks that I may create a scene??? As if I would do something like that. And I still can't understand why Grandma calls me "Badness" and "Trouble". I do have an issue with the fact that Mom expects me to wear a holiday party dress.. Hmmmmm.... All proceeds from the event go toward our local SPCA, which is why Mom goes. She always buys the calendar, and last year she bought a recipe book too. We also pay for the pictures.

I have been thinking of what I'm going to ask Santa, and I know I definitely want a Cheese Chase toy. I think the "Cat Sitter vol. 2" dvd would be pretty cool too.. Oh oh.. and a new blanky, and my favourite balls (the ones with the rubber exterior). Mom says they're very hard to find and that Santa may have to make them himself in his toy shop! Whatever, as long as I get some.

Mom would like to remind all fellow animal lovers to please donate to your local shelter this holiday season. We already bought 2 big cases of canned cat food, some toys, and will be getting some blankies for them soon.
