Our Welcome Home Snowman

Our Welcome Home Snowman is Glowing Bright!

Gracey and Snowman

My Snowman Friend and I waiting for my parents

The holiday season is in full swing.  I can watch pretty twinkling lights outside my window at night and my window Snowman has come back to visit with me for awhile.  He shines brightly in the early evening and slowly changes colors from red, to blue to green. At night whoever is home first, either my mom or dad, they make sure they plug in the snowman to greet  each other. We have a code for the snowman’s colors, green is for my mom and me because we have green eyes, blue is for my dad because he has blue eyes and red is because we love our family and friends.

After the snowman is twinkling bright, my mom or dad scoops me up and holds me so I can see out the window and we watch as the car pulls into the driveway and wave  a happy welcome!  This makes us all laugh and I squirm to get down so I can run to the door to give a proper greeting.

Last year, our poor snowman wasn’t feeling well and he lost his glow.  We were super sad.  We thought about getting a new snowman but that didn’t seem right after all it wasn’t his fault  he lost his ability to twinkle.  My dad tried to find a replacement bulb for him, but wasn’t having much luck.  The snowman sat in the window with me, but he just didn’t seem like himself.

The Thanksgiving Menu Preparations

Preparations are being made in my habitat for Thanksgiving dinner.  This means all different types of foods are prepared at once and the smells wafting from the kitchen can be overwhelming!  A  cat’s nose has to work extra hard to determine the origin of these smells. And this is more difficult than you think, because the Thanksgiving menu is not all turkey and ham.  There are decoys on that menu like cranberry relish.  A cat must remain diligent and stalk the kitchen to determine the best time to ambush the table and snag a tasty morsel.
