So it’s Christmas morning and my human presents us with just two packages! Binga and I were wondering where Boodie’s was. My human said that instead of getting us a bunch of smaller gifts, we were getting bigger ones and had to “share,” whatever that means.
I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw my first gift! It was one of those DJ cat scratchers that I wrote about a few weeks ago. I was bummed because they sold out, but apparently my human got one in time!
Then I saw… the dreaded instructions! My human asked if we wanted to see the second gift while she was putting the DJ cat scratcher together. Of course we did! I knew it was going to be a while.
How cool! My other present was one of those fancy ceramic fountains! I’ve been wanting one of those for the longest time, and our old Drinkwell has been broken for months. We’ve still been using it, but it does not run anymore. A new fountain has been long overdue.
But… wait a minute! What do I see here?
I can’t believe it. First my human buys one that has already been opened and returned — and then she forgets to take off the label. How cheap, and thoughtless!
At least it did not take her too long to assemble the DJ cat scratcher.
And she brought in a sprig of Christmas catnip from the garden!
How great to finally have my own fresh nip!
Oh, and if you were wondering what my human gave her boyfriend that was 112 years old — it was a vintage map of downtown Los Angeles from an 1899 atlas! Before there was Dodger Stadium or even freeways.
I was beginning to think the only real bummer part of Christmas this year (other than that 20% off label on the fountain) was that I did not get my Secret Paws package in time. But then my human’s boyfriend came in with a package that some postal human had left yesterday by the gate, instead of by the door like they are supposed to. I looked at the return address…
To be continued!
