Here Comes Santa Paws…..

(sung to tune of “Oh What A Beautiful Morning”)

(((Sam clears throat)))

“Oh what a beautiful moooooooooorning,

Oh what a beautiful day…..

I’ve got a wonderful feeeeeeeling,

Santa is coming today!!!!”

Me in a Santa Hat......

Santa Claws? No, it’s ME silly!

Happy Christmas Eve Day everybody!   Well, even though it’s hours to go before he gets HERE to Virginia, I guess he’s already started stopping at some places on the globe to do his thing. 

Be warned boys and girls of all animal types, it’s too late to make a switch from “NAUGHTY” to “NICE” so whatever you were, you still are!  You’ll find out Christmas morning I suppose if you’re unsure WHICH list you were on.

Me?  I’m on the NICE list…….I may have been on the NAUGHTY list a few times in my many years but not now.  No doubt about it. 

I had fun over the weekend reading everybody’s Christmas blogs – talking about the true meaning of Christmas, family or friends who are coming to our houses to share in our holiday cheer, presents under the tree (or hidden in closets by our peeps who think we don’t know they are there….hahaha) and now here we are.  Christmas Eve Day. 

I’ve said it a bunch of times lately – and I’ve meant it every single time I’ve said it – but now that it’s really HERE, I want to say it again!!  Thanks for being my friends……..thanks for visiting me here every day………and I hope you have a wonderful Christmas.  Remember no Tuesday Teaser on Christmas Day but we’ll see you again on Wednesday! 




Your Pal Sammy

    I was awake at the stroke of midnight so I decided to check on all my new blogging friends.I even managed to pick up a new one as I searched my photo/graphics archives for a bit of holiday cheer. I was successful, your site did the trick. Thanks for picking up my spirits this holiday season. – Bob & Jack the Cat

      Hi Sundae! You’re so sweet all the year round I’m sure Santa is overlooking the bitey-bite thing. I’ve been a bitey-biter for 13 years and he’s ALWAYS visited me!! I hope you and your Motor Parents have the merriest and happiest of Christmases Sundae girl.

      Oh what a sweet message Miss Caren, Cody and Dakota! You made the special-ness of Christmas Eve even special-er !!! 😀 😀 😀 I’m so excited I can’t stand it….and Miss Caren, Mom is threatening to put that cute Santa hat you sent me on my little ginger head tomorrow – let’s see if I can FOOL HER or if she will FOOL me!!

      Holiday Hugs and lots of love to ALL of you!


  14. 31

    MERRY CHRISTMAS Sammy! I sure do hope you and your pawrents have the best of Christmasas ever!

    Yes, Santa will be flying tonight. I know that NORAD keeps track of him and whatnot but I understand that sometimes the airforce base near us does a little tracking, too. They might even give him a fighter escort or something. Anywho… if you need up-to-date info on the big guy’s progress, feel free to call me. I’ll get on the horn to Greenwood. purrs


    • 32

      Thanks Nerissa!!! I appreciate the offer of getting the low-down on Santa’s operations this Christmas Eve. I’m hoping he’s on schedule and that he doesn’t have any “reindeer in training” who might get directions wrong to your house or mine. Mom and I loved your bloggy today but we couldn’t get the little comment square to pop up! We just LOVE your Mom’s catnip mouses – very cute! I hope you get everything your heart desires for Christmas my good friend………

      Holiday Hugs, Sammy

    Penelope Says:

    Sammy, me is finding it furry hard to be good. To tells yous the truth, me and Kozmo had a rumble in the middle of the night and waked everybody up! Me thinks me should sleeps all day. Now me is off to naps.


    • 36

      Well my dearest Nellie, what’s a holiday without a good rumble to keep things INTERESTING……I’m sure that it’s too late for that to count against either you or Kozmo anyway. Santa’s already guiding that sleigh your way by now – – as for sleeping all day I think that’s a purrrrfectly good way to spend Christmas Eve – it makes Christmas morning come faster!!!!

      Holiday Snuggles, Sammy

    Merry Christmas Eve, Sammy! We hope you find everything you wish for under your tree tomorrow!


    • 38

      Thanks guys and same to you! Since we’ve all been PERFECT cats this past year, there’s little doubt that we’ll be raking in the “good stuff” tomorrow morning from Santa!!

      Holiday Hugs, Sammy

    Sparkle Says:

    I hope your Christmas is full of delight and treats, Sammy! And I guess since it is too late to change, my whapping Boodie this morning will be overlooked.


    • 40

      Oh it IS too late Sparkle – that whap goes on NEXT year’s “naughty” list for Miss Sparkle…….HAHAHAHAHA I hope Santa brings you tons of fun stuff!

      Holiday Hugs, Sammy

    Meowy Catmas from all of us at the Katnip Lounge! We avoided any Christmas garb this year…we got lucky!


    • 42

      Oh wow – you guys ARE lucky. Mom’s got a silly Christmas hat she’s expecting me to wear and I thought I saw something getting jammed into my stocking (I was peeking at the time) that looked a lot like a bow tie! HORRORS!

      Merry Christmas gang……….may you get precisely what you wished for from Santa!
      Love, Sammy


  20. 43

    Merry Christmas Sammy and Pam … and wishing you nothing but the best!
