Simon’s Cat Scary Legs
We love Simon’s cat and this one Scary Legs really made me laugh. Many people are afraid of spiders and I have to be honest, I used to be one of them. I could barely stand to be in the same room with a spider but I never wanted to kill them. I liked to relocate them back outside and at times this took a lot of courage to accomplish. In fact, more often than not it involved deep breaths, involuntary shuddering, shivering and repeatedly telling myself to stay calm while I balanced the spider on the end of a broom or yardstick.

Walkin’ in a Kitty Wonderland Photo Winners!
Our friends at Purina and Petco offered some great holiday decorating tips for you in their latest edition of Purina Purr. I was super curious how you and your cat decorate for the holidays and asked you to share with me photos of your cat and any special holiday decorating you do with your feline friends in mind. I want to thank all of you that sent in super cute images of your cats. There were so many to choose from that we allowed independent judges to choose the winners.
Decorating with your cat!
In my habitat, things are beginning to get a bit more interesting. Lots of shiny objects are coming out of boxes and twinkling lights are being strung across the mantle. Even my sunroom takes on a winter wonderland feeling when the blinking star garland takes it’s place and the Christmas tree is adorned with ornaments in the shapes of many of my favorite animals.
My parents make sure all the super shiny glass ornaments are resting out of my reach and they place the soft satin and other unbreakable ornaments on my little tree in the sunroom. This is better for everyone, including me, because after all I am a cat and when the lights are twinkling and the glass ornaments are super shiny and interesting to touch, sometimes the glass ornaments leap off the tree and crash to the floor. Shards of glass are not good for any of us.
