Texts from Mittens: The Christmas Presents Edition

Gift planning is blocked, Mom eats all the gravy, and Mitty might have to wear socks! He texts!

Angie Bailey  |  Dec 2nd 2015

Thanksgiving has passed, so of course Mittens shifts his focus to Christmas. Even though he can be a little self-centered at times, he thinks hard about the presents he wants to give his loved ones. The trouble is, he has no money, and Mom is no help at all. She doesn’t even support his creative re-gifting idea! The holiday season will be a certain disaster!

At least there’s solace in leftover Thanksgiving gravy. Wrong! Mom informs Mitty the gravy bowl is drained. Is there no justice for a cat like Mittens? He sure doesn’t think so. And if Grandma makes him wear knitted socks, he’s not sure what he’ll do. Life is hard! Here are the recent happenings in the world of our pal Mitty.



"I'm poor!"

“I’m poor!”


"No socks for these paws!"

“No socks for these paws!”



"I'll have that gravy now."

“I’ll have that gravy now.”
