Its Boxing day!
So that is why I like boxes? They made a holiday for us kitties...what kitty can't resist a good box to hide in, ambush someone or poke a paw out of to shag a toy or a passer by!
Or perhaps it is a day to go boxing? But while I often have tiffs with my furbros, I don't think I would want to see a real boxing fight...I am a kitty, and I like peaceful activities!
Actually, Boxing Day is British, also celebrated in other countries, such as Canada. The folks would make up boxes and deliver them to families in need.
It is my furbro Pipo's Birthday! Happy Birthday, Pipo!
It is also my Grammy's Birthday!
She is 92, today...but unfortunately, she has not got much memory of anything these days, hardly knows when she gets a visit, and talking on the phone with her is so hard, because she is very deaf, and never wanted a hearing aide...but now she would probably not be able to properly use it.
We called her yesterday to wish her a Happy Christmas, and now we are waiting for our uncle to go there and put us in touch, so we can wish her a Happy Birthday!
Oh the sad days of life, when we can no longer function very well, and the children become the parents...but we do cherish having her with us, still...even though she had to go to a nursing home several months ago...she kept falling, and uncle couldn't help her properly. She seems to like the added activity there, too...there is more going on around her, than in her home.
I don't know that I as a kitty will get to be that elderly, but for now I will accept the fact that soon I will be also having a milestone marker on my lifeline...all of 6 years!
Meowmy posted up some new pics of me and some of our Christmas and birthday gifts. We got the B'day gifts early...cause the pawrents will be too busy on those days, and also then my unfurbros could watch us play with them!
And there is some pics in which you can see Skeezix giveaway gift. It is blue. Just the right color, I love blue! Thanks Skeezix!
Soon, meowmy will put up some pics for my B'day...
The snow storms of late have not bothered us too much, so we are able to get around quite well, or rather our pawrents!
Hope that the current storm in the northeast and southeast does not cause too much trouble...hope that all our furends in its path stay warm, cozy and above all safe.
I like playing in boxes too - I thought it was a holiday to play in boxes that were emptied out of Christmas presents! MOL MOL! Happy birthday to Pipo and your grandma.
Boxes are the greatest things in the world! I usually sit in them so long that mommy can't throw them out for days because she doesn't have the heart to move me! I just look so happy in them!
