This is how my cat, Cheeto, feels about Christmas. I thought it was cute when I saw him nuzzling under the tree on the tree skirt. Just as that thought was entering my mind, I caught him rip a bow off a package and proceed to destroy it! What a ham...
Speaking of Cheeto, he has a girlfriend! Cheeto is an indoor cat and although he spend hours on our screened in back porch, he's not allowed in the yard. But, his girlfriend is an outdoor cat. Girlfriend, (faylene is what we call her) comes and visits Cheeto every morning. Faylene sits on the fence and they just stare at each other and meow. Faylene also visits during the day and sits directly outside the glass front door while Cheeto sits directly inside the glass front door. It is a sight to see! Both of them are all riled up with tails wagging (I didn't know cats wagged their tails!)
The sad part is, we don't know if Girlfriend has a home or not. She looks well cared for and isn't skinny, but she comes around the house a lot. We put food out for her and she eats it, but we aren't sure if she's not being feld elsewhere and is really hungry or is just a chubby nugget.
So--for now, Cheeto just has a mistress that visits him daily. (Kinda romantic, isn' it?)
