Yesterday, I reminded y’all that the Gentleman and I are not big on presents. We actually did give each other 2-3 tiny gifts this year just to populate the tree and by tiny I mean that I got a bag of Goldfish crackers and some Pinot Noir. Good pairing, no? Anyway, one member of our family does get some loot from Santa every year and that’s our four-legged kiddo, Violet. Violet herself was a Christmas present, adopted from our local shelter on 12/23/10, so the holiday is also her Forever Home Day. Happy 2 years in the House of Crazy, Violet!
This year, in a moment of temporary insanity, I actually WRAPPED the CAT’s presents, complete with ribbons (yes, the kind cats can choke on) and labels. Violet is an addict, so most of these wrapped gifts contained her drug of choice, catnip. As a result, Violet had a grand time seeking out which packages were hers and pulling them open under the tree.
