Mauricio, Astrid and Lisbeth all have significant others as most of you already know. Each of them received some incredible gifts from those kitties: Astrid from Sampy, Mau from Allie and Lisbeth from Charles.
With Fiona’s illness, all the gifts were not opened until several days after Christmas. Allie, Sampy and Charles were so generous that all our kitties will be sharing. Calista Jo tore the paper off of, played with and absconded with a toy. Lily Olivia got so carried away with a catnip toy that she horked on an unopened gift, the bed and the rug. The two latter incidents occurred prior to any of the actual recipients arriving on the scene.
I am not going to write too much about the gifts but share photos in a slideshow.
Needless to say, all the fur balls had a terrific holiday and received more gifts than they deserved. What they don’t know is that they have one more gift to open from their dad and me.
Lisbeth absolutely loves to crawl under the covers with us at night. I believe her new blanket, which she adores, may eliminate her need to burrow with us.
Mauricio, Lisbeth, Astrid and I send our sincere thanks to Allie and Mom Sharon, Charles and Mom Inge and Sampy and Mom Emily (Kitty Cat Chronicles) for their thoughtfulness and generosity. They are the best of friends, and the kitties and I love them all bunches.
Finally, in case you did not see it on Allie’s blog (Friends Furever), Mau asked if I would please share a photo of his main gift to Allie.
I commissioned this pen and watercolor portrait of the couple from Thomas Dalsgaard Clausen. Most of you know him from One Drawing Daily and from creating drawings of many of our furry friends, including Mau and Lily Olivia. I was amazed at how he totally captured these two love birds and can never thank him enough for creating something so beautiful.
You all had lots of lovely gifts, and the portrait is beautiful.
What terrific gifts!
Oh that commissioned art work is gorgeous.
Sampy is so excited to see that Astrid is enjoying her gifts from him. He has a cube just like that and loves to run through it. It looks like everybody got some really great gifts! Those photos of Lisbeth sleeping with her gifts are adorable! We really love the portrait of Mau and Allie too — it is beautiful!!! We hope you al have been able to continue enjoying your Christmas prezzies. We send lots of love, with extra purrs and prayers for Fiona, and zillions of kisses for Astrid from Sampy.
What pawsome gifts! And that watercolor of Mau and Allie is spectacular.
The watercolor is exquisite!
What a lovely post ! It looks like you had lots of wonderful gifts, and a lot of fun ! The painting is adorable ! Purrs
Mau really knows how to get a gift for a lady- that came out great. All your kitties are lucky to have such sweet significant others. A lot of my kitties are paired up now and it is hard to keep track of them all.
Aw, what wonderful gifts! Love the portrait!
Lovely creative post ! I did not tell Paladin and Moon – they would become jealous, and besides they already have a human totally dedicated/enslaved to their every whim … Happy 2016 to each and all! Vera
I loved watching the picture slideshow and seeing the kitties enjoying their goodies! What a wonderful Christmas it was. Also, I absolutely love the portrait created by Thomas – it’s purrfection! Purrs to all!
The THUD you heard was Allie when she saw her handsome ManCat Mauricio on his blankie!!! We’re glad you like your presents!!!
The Florida Furkids with special smoochies and love to Mau from Allie
What a GREAT slideshow of presents and fun…….we think Thomas did a totally amazing job of capturing Mau and Allie’s LUV in that portrait. Thomas is just SO GOOD at getting expressions – especially in the eyes.
Love and Hugs, Sammy
