It Pays To Be Good!

Sam Red Christmas Bow

Aww I have to wear this girlie bow?? I look silly! Alright....I'll cooperate....just for you since it's Christmas Morning!

Merry Christmas (again!).  So we just finished opening all the presents from under the tree and in our stockings and Dad’s taken the trash outside and Mom’s put all our unwrapped presents back under the tree so we can admire them the rest of today….whew!  I was overwhelmed – so many boxes, so much tissue, so many ribbons and bows…..that is always my favorite part.  I could almost do without the goodies Santa brings me (I said ALMOST!).

So what did I get you might ask??? 

Sam With His Christmas Presents!

OK Mom....check in my stocking for me and make sure EVERYTHING's out!

I liked the “Greenies” treats but I think my favorite thing was a little white mouse on an elastic band with a plastic ring on the end.  The orange worm was kinda cool too…….the one thing I didn’t care much for (in fact I tried really hard to bury it under the tissue paper) was that KONG Kicker thing (the big tiger striped thing with a black tail filled with catnip).   The package showed a kitty holding it in its legs kicking it with its back feet and having a great time………purrsonally I don’t GET it……but I’ve never been one to really like anything catnip-ish.  Poor Mom – she keeps trying it out on me though!!!  After twelve years you’d think she’d give up.   🙂

What I really enjoyed this morning though was watching Mom and Dad open their stuff and playing in the wrapping………..

Sam Under Christmas Tree
Go on Pop – open another present! This is fun……
Sam on Christmas Morning
OK Mom – YOUR turn to open one now!!!!

So, everything has calmed down in the house now – Mom’s got the turkey in the oven and all the other stuff ready to go….the house smells yummy although I’m not “big” on turkey (oh I’ll force myself to have a bit…..don’t worry!).  Later tonight Mom’s apple pie will be cooking and making the house smell great all over again…….we’ll round out our Christmas by watching the new Muppet Christmas movie (one of Dad’s stocking gifts!).  It’s been a really swell Christmas. 

I know Christmas is not all about the presents……we’re celebrating a very big and special birthday that happened many, many years ago in the little town of Bethlehem.  See?  I know the whole story because Mom told me all about it.  It’s a very magical story.  That night with that bright star in the sky WE got the best gift EVER……….
Mom, Dad and me hope you had the BEST Christmas!!
Love, Sammy

  1. Hi, Sammy, Looks like you were a VERY good kitty!
    My mom and dad left early for a family breakfast: 19 folks there. I think Mom and Dad were ready to get home to a little peace and quiet!
    My “brother” Marshall is coming tonight, and we’ll open gifts then! YAY!
    Merry Christmas (again), Sammy!
    Love, Sundae


    • Hi Sundae! I bet you can’t wait until Marshall comes over so you can open your presents AND see what everybody ELSE gets!! I hope you have a lot of fun tonight….and let me know what Santa brings you OK????

      Love, Sam


  2. You are looking fine and dandy, Sammy, there among all the presents. Mom and the catnip. Sigh. You know how moms can be sometimes, huh, Sammy. Just kidding, you’ve got the best mom in the world.


  3. Looks like today is everything you hoped it would be…lots of fun with wrapping paper and tissue, ribbons AND your Santa gifts! Don’t eat too much of that apple pie! LOL!!


    • Hi Miss June….we did have a very nice Christmas and no doubt you and BJ did too. It’s nice while it’s here, but we’re all pretty well pooped out after it’s over!! Have a nice “day after”…..we’re going to just REEEEEELAXXXXX!

      Love, Sam


  4. Merry Christmas, Sammy!!! Nice tissue paper you’ve got there! The wrapping is always the best part of any gift, isn’t it?

    Enjoy a little turkey for me, Sammy. The only thing my human has cooked is a champagne & berry terrine. Looks like I’ll be hunting for lizards while you get stuffed on stuffing!

    (I’m glad to see I’m not the only one that got stuck wearing a bow. The things we do for humans!)


    • Hey Cody – you’re right – that kicker thing is just too darn big. Why did they put a photo of a kitty having fun with it on the package??? I bet they had to tape or glue that cat to the darn Kong Kicker to take that picture!!! 😀

      Hope you had a super Christmas!!!


  5. These are lovely Pam. Looks like Sam had a great time with the presents. I especially like the last picture. He has beautiful eyes!!!! What a lovely boy he is, and so obviously at the heart of your home. i’ve got a warm fuzzy feeling now. 🙂
    Happy Boxing Day.


    • Glad you like them Isobel….just for you I didn’t use the flash although catching him STILL long enough for even that to work is a trial (or maybe I’m just too jiggly with my hands in my old age?!). He is truly our heart. Glad we could give you a warm feeling – we enjoyed your video this morning of NotCat – obviously the heart of YOU home as well??

      Happy Boxing Day to you too!


I wanna know what YOU've got to say!!
