The fun for us continued today as Mom proceeded with her holiday decorating. Yesterday Giulietta was responsible for snoopervision and quality control inspection. In a spirit of cooperation (Santa is watching), we kitties have decide to take turns in this capacity.

You really cannot see what I was doing here, but I was ensuring that this artificial wreath was suitable as a cat bed. Mom says that efurry kitty who has resided here has had this particular job at one time or another. She says that I am especially good at this as I have a compact body that fits easily within the wreath. Once I was satisfied that this was up to my high standards, I had a really nice snooze.

Tomorrow Dad will bring the trees (yes, trees) up from the basement. Mom will work on decorating those for at least a week, so each of us will have ample opportunity to fulfill our duties as snoopervisor/inspector. It’s a tough job, but we are up to the assignment!


Oh. I almost forgot…Mom asked me to remind you about our current giveaway. To enter for a chance to win an autographed copy of Tail’s from Cyprus as Told by Liza, click here and leave a comment.

Mom says this was an absolutely pawsome book, and she cannot think of anyone who wouldn’t like it. I say, “It’s about a cat. What’s not to like?” Entries close on Sunday, December 7, at 8 pm EST.

Purrs and paw-pats, Astrid

p.s. to Sampy

Dear Astrid,
You are doing such an excellent job snoopervising! But I would expect nothing less from you. Everything about you is excellent. That wreath looks like a great napping spot — is there room for me to come join you? I’d love a good snuggle with you! I hope you have a fun time helping your mom decorate! Mom and Dad just bought our tree yesterday. We haven’t gotten around to decorating it yet though. Maybe tomorrow! I’ll send you photos of my snoopervising once it happens. Sending lots of love, and a kiss for every leaf, petal, and pine needle on that wreath!
Your Sampy

We love to snoopervise the decorating too. Our tree might go up this weekend, though the mom doesn’t decorate it right away because for some reason it ends up un-decorated.

Oh thank cod we thought we couldn’t get to see your blog anymore. It seems that some computer are not compatible with your site. On the humans’ home computer we can see you, but when she peeks during her breaktime at work, your site is not loading 🙁

So there, we were clicking every day just so you know. We missed you.
