#Secret Santa Paws celebration!


At last I can share our Secret Santa Paws prezzies! Dad P and Mom L didn’t get our stockings or our Secret Paws gifts to us until after New Years! I think they need a refresher on the course in proper kitty care, don’t you?? We are so happy we pawticipated in the 2022 Secret Paws gift exchange that Ms. BJ Bangs took on managing after our dearest Miss Paula passed away last year. Thank you so much Miss BJ for doin’ this for all of us!

So you are gonna see our stocking stuffers mixed up with our Secret Paws prezzies ‘cuz we all just kind’a dug into the box at the same time we did our stockings. Our fabulous Secret Santa Paws was the incredibly talented blog Four-Legged Furballs.

Let me tell you! Those four-legged furballs sure do know how to make a bunch of kitties happy campers!! Their human, Miss Lorianne, helped those six kitties pick out some mighty fun prezzies! And the kitties’ human Grandma made some special nap pads for each of us; even one for Mom L. Of course, we already snagged the one Mom L got so’s we could use it for ourselves! MOL!!!

So here we go—some photos to show off our wonderful Christmas celebration (once our humans let us at our prezzies!!)

Sage could smell the catnip toys in her stocking and she wasted no time bunny kicking the snot outta her stocking as she tried to get at that nip! Then she did a dumpster dive and almost got her head stuck in her stocking. Silly cat!

Mom L offered my stocking for me to preview with a couple of sniffs. Then she had to open stuff up and present it to me. I wasn’t gonna get outta my nice beddie and mingle with all those crazy pants youngsters like Sage was! You can see that I finally gave up and nodded off again.

Even our shy Katie go into the action. She especially loves anything with catnip in it—just like her Auntie Sage! You can see her inspecting my empty stocking on the floor. She wouldn’t look into her own; silly little girl.

As for The Domino Kid aka Domino aka Domie aka “the boy”—he was all over everything once he got the hang of what was going on. Remember, this was his FIRST EVER Christmas just like it was for our foster girl Binky. Domino found this one wand toy right outta the shipping box and he wasn’t gonna ever let that go!!

Last but never ever the least—our sweet foster girl, now seven months old, stood back and watched for a bit. But then she got right into it.

I wanna share a couple of photos of our newbie Domie, and our foster Binky along with sweet Katie. These three are the “youngsters” in my castle and they are having such a good time these days what with chasing each other up and down the stairs playin’ tag and anything else they can imagine to do together.

Just look at  our Ambassador Katie, talking to Domie and Binky; tellin’ them how special they are and how much we all love having them in my castle. Katie took time to do some nose kisses with her new gal pal, Foster Binky. And TKS allowed the two other  young house panthers on the bed to help open all our prezzies.

I’d say we all had a marvelous Christmas and our Secret Paws are the most spectacular gift finders ever!! Please go visit Four-Legged Furballs!!


Friday Smiles from our Chrissymouse day


I am changing up my usual Friday Memes for Friday Smiles in hopes of giving you some smiles by sharing how all six of us kitties in my castle enjoyed our Chrissymouse Day! And I am revealing our Secret Paws gifts and the identify of our Secret Santa Paws!!

First up is revelation of our Secret Paws for 2021! Lola and Lexy from Lola the Rescue Cat. We were their Secret Paws in 2020; small world, eh?

Our prezzies were all wrapped so pretty and they all had labels so’s I would know which ones were mine who got what. Mom L found some pretty holiday happy hour napkins and this cool ice cube maker that turns the ice into the heads of cats!! And we got this way cool tunnel that Eowyn and Katie and our foster kittens loved!

We all super enjoyed opening our Secret Paws prezzies.

And then we got to open our special stockings!

And our foster kittens Arwen and Frodo shared in the festivities by checking out their very own little stockings.

I hope you have your Friday Smiles on from watching us enjoying our Chrissmouse Day. We hope all of you had a meowvelous special day and that your New Year will be bright and healthy!


My Secret Santa Paws 2019


First, I promise this blog post will still get your Friday smiles going!! Every year for the past seven years we have pawticipated in Secret Santa Paws, hosted and organized by the incredible kitties and human at Sweet Purrfections. Without Truffle, Brulee and Miss Paula, this wonderful event would not happen at all!!

The deal is that I get selected to be Secret Paws for cat/cats who blog and then in turn some kitties are selected to be MY Secret Paws. It’s a wonderful gift exchange between cats who love to write blogs!

Anywho, moving on. So this year I got to be Secret Santa Paws for wonderful buddies The Island Cats, Ernie and Zoey and their human, The Lady With The Yellow Hair Miss Sue.

I gave Mom L a shopping list and let her use my secret Savannah’s Paw Tracks credit card. And oh my cat did Mom L ever do a great job shopping! So great that TKS, KK and I all wanted to be sure to send off our gifts with some of our very own kitty spit!

That’s us helping Mom L wrap the prezzies we sent to The Island Cats. You can probably tell we really like the selections Mom L made!

Fast forward to Christmas morning when we finally got to open our box from our own Secret Santa Paws, The Celestial Kitties, Leo, Glitter and Cashmere!!

I stayed in bed late on Christmas morning so KK and TKS did the honors for all of us. And TKS was first to get right into that box to start getting those wrapped packages out where she could play with them.

And did those three ever send the bestest ever prezzies to us!! As some of you know, Miss Andrea is known for her skill with those knitting needles and she used them to make a special catnip mousie for EACH of us. You can see that Katie totally loved hers!!

Of course TKS also went nip crazy over several of the prezzies.

You can see that our Secret Santa Paws knew just what we liked. And one of the bestest ever was the paper bag made from catnip paper!

And if you think TKS and KK were nipped out after opening their Secret Santa Paws, you haven’t seen them opening their Christmas stockings!! Remember this is Katie’s first ever Christmas with a loving family!

Of course TKS got to the stocking before anyone else. First there were three on the fireplace mantel.

And then only two!

TKS also had another nip hangover after going through her stocking.

All in all, we kitties had a pawsome Christmas!! Thanks again to Celestial Kitties for their generous prezzies. We are still enjoying each and every one!

So how was your holiday?
