Santa is coming to town in a few days, and I'm worried that he's going to skip our house!
I've been very good. In fact, I think this year is my best chance for getting on the 'nice' list. It's the girls in my life that I'm concerned about.
Deli has definitely been naughty. I've tried to gently urge her to clean up her act before the big man comes to town, but she just whaps me. One look at her and Santa is going to run screaming!
Sweet Pea has not been much better. I realize she's still a kitten, and this is her first Christmas ever, but look what she did to The Ball Guy's arm! If you biggify it, you can see the puncture wounds as well as the slash wounds!
He was laughing when he showed Mommy, but I know if I did that, it'd be straight to the naughty list for me.
Delilah and Sweet Pea are Torties, and Mommy says that Santa understands tortitude, so maybe they won't scare him away just being themselves. Mommy, on the other hand, is NOT a tortie, and she is the worst of all the girls around here! She hasn't put one stitch of Christmas decoration up, and says she won't either. She has to work during the holidays (from home) and she said she just doesn't have the time.
Here's a recent picture of Mommy:
I guess it's up to me to save Christmas, so I've come up with a plan. Mommy says that children, doggies and kitties usually leave out sugar cookies and milk on Christmas Eve, because Santa has a lot of work to do and needs some nourishment for energy. I've decided to leave him treats and a mousie instead. These treats are full of protein, and instead of a quick sugar rush, he'll have more energy for the long haul. The mousie is, well, no explanation needed. Everyone loves mousies. And who wants sugar cookies when you can have freeze-dried beef liver and chicken??? Not Santa, I'm sure.
I'm also going to leave out stockings. Since we have no tree or Christmas decorations this year, at least Santa will have a place to put the gifts. The little one is Sweet Pea's because she's so small so she will probably get tiny gifts too!
If any of you 'nice' kitties have any other suggestions to lure Santa, I would love to hear them. I'm working with some very naughty housemates here, and I need all the help I can get!
P.S. We were so sad to hear about our friend Callie leaving last week. We are sending purrs to her family in this hard time. Delilah is going to dedicate her Tortie Tuesday tomorrow to her tortie friend.
