Santa's Little Helpers

Hurrah, Christmas time is nearly upon us! And every year for me, this means one thing... time to dress up the cats in Christmas hats! Tee hee! The cats do not love this tradition quite so much. However, I never dress up cats under any other circumstances and I think the girls can cope with the slightly miffing circumstances of having something attached to your head for 30 seconds. Plus, it is so cute!

First up, we have some SANTA CLAWS... Three Santas? Who could the true one be??

Gizmo says: 'Surely it could be me! For Santa is round, and so am I. Did someone say milk and cookies were left out tonight?'

Sahara says 'It might be me, for red is a very Santa colour, and I am red. Did you say cookies?'.

Dim Sim says: 'It certainly isn't me. I am so totally outraged with this entire situation. In fact, just don't even talk to me.'

Hmmm... whoever it is, they'll have a very cute team to pull their sled!

(Again, Dim Sim says: 'Don't close your eyes tonight. You might not wake up. I am so bitter about this.')

Oh... my girls are adorable! Alas, this Christmas Eve I am not at home with the girls, eating Christmas Eve dinner and going out to look at Christmas lights. I am on call at the clinic. And with the flu! But I do have a little someone to share my night with...

This is Daphne. She is BOOOOOTIFUL! She was brought into the clinic a few months ago as a stray who was hit by a car. She had a fractured pelvis and a ruptured cruciate. And now she is fixed! Yay! And she is so very sweet. So we shall spend Christmas Eve together. Wish me a phone call free, sleep full night!

And if anyone wants to see something just adorable for the Christmas time, go over to the Super Special Festive Friday Feature at I Am Not A Rabbit, it will put a massive smile on your face!

Happy Christmas Eve, and a wonderful Christmas Day for tomorrow! I can't wait to read about everyone's yummy food!


  1. So cute! But yes, I would sleep with one eye open if I were you! Tee hee!

    And thanks~ you are so sweet! I'm glad you like the festive feature! My dad said I have "way too much spare time" >:o)

    I hope you feel better soon, and that you don't have to work too hard tonight.

    A very Merry Cristmas to you and your gorgeous girls! xx

    (I'm sure the company of the beautiful Daphne will make your Christmas Eve all the merrier!)

  2. Haha! You're right, our kitties should get together :P They're adorable Susan!

  3. V.v.v.v cute kitties! And Daphne is beautiful too, I love hearing happy stories like hers!

  4. Aww, I think your kitties will forgive you. They look so cute. Merry Christmas!

  5. I love how Sahara is all "I'm keeping my eye closed, thus this is not happening, and I retain my dignity". I suspect if I tried the same with Lucie and Squeak I would be removing angry-cat from my face for months.

  6. They are indeed beautiful. And Daphne was excellent Christmas Eve company. She spent the night all curled up in the crook of my arm, purring and snuggling. Such a sweetie! I love her a little bit.

    Leigh - I was quite surprised that Sahara sat so still for it. I had tried it a few days earlier and she was far too frisky. And seriously, do it with you cats! The photos last a life time, scratches heal eventually. ;)

  7. OMG your kitties are so adorable!! Dim Sim looks mad, but you know he's loving the attention regardless! Daphne is such a lucky little cutie pie!

    I hope you had a lovely Christmas!

  8. I can't believe you disgraced your girls like that! lol
