Santa was good to me!

From all the trouble I got into this past year, you might have thought I wouldn't get anything for Christmas ... but, you'd be wrong! I lucked out this year. ;o)

Some pictures from Christmas day - what nice surprises and I had so much fun.

What's in this? Is this for "moi" ?

All the way from France, a fuzzy blue thing on the end of a fishing pole. This toy is loads of fun and my human "brother" enjoyed playing with me too.

I even received a new Christmas mouse from my cat "cousins" in the Untied States (Hmm, "Mom" is stepping in here, Sacha - you know perfectly well that it is the United States , not the "Untied" States. What were you thinking there?? LOL Silly little cat! We might have to make an appointment with the cat psychologist, for you, in the new year. Freudian cat slips! lol ) Thanks again Nigel, Toby and Bill!

First meeting ... hmmm ...

I gave the mouse (muis) a kiss (kus) .
Wat leuk! (How nice!) .

At the end of the day, I took a long nap in my tent that I had decorated for Christmas.

We always ask for food, cookies, bones, and more cookies.
So Sasha, here is a tip from us.
Toys.. who needs toys? you can always play with your moms clothes, socks, her pencils, brushes and other things she leaves around the house. In this way you get much more attention as well.

Happy Newyear! (and do not go out of the house tonight!!)

Don't worry, I'm not leaving the corner under the bed in the attic in Mom's studio! I've been there since early this morning - I'm not even in my tent! This corner is safer. Way too many fireworks going off in our neighbourhood for me!!!

Happy New Year to you too.
