Cheeto


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?)

Fritz (our cat) does the same thing with bows and eats the corner of packages. Needless to say I don't have any package wrapped and under the tree yet. And how cute that he has a girlfriend. :)

Aawww, Faylene is just the prettiest name! Cheeto looks so happy snuggled under the tree. Meisha LOVES our tree and the presents, but most of all the ribbons on the presents - she goes CRAZY when I wrapping pressies and curling the ribbon!

Cute!

My parents' cat eats ribbon. LOVES IT! Like, he actually swallows it. He can't keep it down, but that' another story...

Sounds like someone needs to have "the talk" with Cheeto!
