We had expected to be having a Thankful Thursday today and telling you all about our Secret Paws gifts. But an unidentified kitty got into some mischief Tuesday night.
This is what Mom found when she went downstairs Wednesday morning. Not only was efurrything in disarray, but some extra-bad kitty had peed on the table runner. We’re pretty surprised we got our breakfast after this blatant display of naughtiness. Of course, we never tattle on each other. Even though we are not each others’ best friends, we have to stick together when it is humans versus cats.
Due to the inappropriate behavior, Mom said we could not have our Secret Paws presents today. She is letting us tell you who sent the prezies and show you her gift.
So, some cat, purrlease man the cymbals and tambourine and make lots of noise: Our goodies were sent to us by Mom Alana, Crepes and the gang from Cat in the Fridge. We think that is particularly cool as Crepes and Mau are both in the Worldwide Wildcats Troop and the Wolverine Patrol at Cat Scouts.
And here is the special gift for our mom from Mom Alana. Our Mom is over the moon with the super personal gift.
It is a exquisite sketch of Astrid drawn by Mom Alana. We apologize that the photo really does not do it justice. Alana is a much better artist than Mom is a photographer.
Purrlease keep your paws crossed that no cat gets into trouble overnight. That’s the only way we can hope to open our gifts any time before the New Year. Even if we do get to check them out, we won’t be reporting about it until next week.
We have a huge surprise for Friday’s post. We have some visitors who will share the holiday with us. We will introduce them to you in the special post. Some of you will recognize our visitors. But that’s all we are telling you now.
See y’all on the flip side.
Purrs and paw-pats, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo
Oh, you guys! My comments aren’t sending notices on my blog anymore (that happens about twice a year when they update me) and I didn’t see your note. I just stopped by today, a little late. So sorry! Glad you love the sketch! And thank you for all the nice comments about the sketch and MomFOD. You guys are the best. We hope you enjoy the rest of the gift when you’re finally well-behaved enough to get it! – Crepes. 🙂
Oh oh…well it’s a good thing ol’ Clooney Claus still delivers to the naughty! That is a beautiful portrait of Astrid by Alana, how special!
Heh heh! Whoa! Your Secret Paws is FAMOUS! TW won’t let me open mine. I know who it’s from but the blog is pretty unactive.
And Not-Me sure keeps busy at your den, MOL!
Wow dat’s a pawsum drawin’ alwight. Hope yous hav a pawsum Christmas. We can’t wait to see what yous got.

That’s a beautiful sketch. Naughty peeing….what’s that about? I hope it was just a one-time thing. And I hope you get your Christmas gifts soon, certainly before New Year’s.
That sketch is beautiful and such a thoughtful gift. Are you sure you don’t have a leaky roof? None of you would pee on a table runner.
Uh oh, someone might be getting coal. That is a gorgeous sketch of Astrid. Alana is very talented.
*whispers* I peed on our new bed …so I won’t tell.

Beautiful sketch ! We hope you’ll be able to open your present very soon, even if one of you is now on Santa’s naughty list ! Purrs
Hoping the kitties got to open their gifts after all! That portrait is just exquisite and something that I am certain you will cherish forever. Alana is so gifted in so many ways, and soooooooooooooo nice an unassuming to boot!
what a lovely picture of Astrid….. we hope you guys behave and get your presents
Uh oh…guys you don’t want to get COAL for Christmas…so no more peeing on the christmas stuff or…well you never know what might happen with Santa Claws. What a gorgeous drawing of Astrid. That will be a present your Mom will always treasure.
That sketch is totally wonderful!!!!
Don’t forget that peeing inappropriately like that is a huge red flag that something is wrong, and changes are it is medical.. I never call my kitties naughty for peeing outside of the box, because it is the only way I know to tell that something is wrong.
hehehe…some shenanigans going on at night? The best time for shenanigans…if you were involved Mau you could get your shenanigans badge at Cat Scouts. The peeing on the table was just excitement and I’m sure nobody was being rude.
Oh dearie me……..you know Santa is still working on the NAUGHTY and NICE lists and peeing on the table runner just might push SOMEONE over the edge and onto a different list! I hope not……of course if there’s no “evidence” of who it is, you all can ALL claim innocence! Beautiful drawing of Astrid – Miss Alana is a wonderful artist! Can’t wait to find out what’s up at your house on Friday!
UH OH! That is some major naughtiness! Good thing you kitties kept to The Code though – no tattling! Hope you get to open your prezzies soon…
We will be looking forward to tomorrow’s post! We have no idea who the special guests could be.
Wait… Sampson wants to say something…
Astrid! That portrait of you is gorgeous! Alana did such a wonderful job capturing your exquisite beauty. What a lovely gift. Speaking of gifts, Mom sent my gift to you in the mail yesterday. I really hope you like it. Sending all of love plus as many kisses as there are black furs on my body. Your Sampy
LOL calls for some coal we say. Better be on your best from now on. Lovely sketch. Have a tremendous Thursday.
Best wishes Molly
every cat gets into a little mischief even my frankie behave and you’ll get your presents and that is a beautiful painting
Uh oh…not a good thing to be messing stuff up when you got presents waiting for you. I was a little naughty yesterday too. I climbed way up in the Christmas tree. The mom was not happy. I hope Santa Paws didn’t see me. ~Ernie
What a beautiful sketch, and an amazing gift! Alana is so talented.
Santa Paws will put you on his naughty list for peeing on the runner! No wonder your mom won’t let you have your prezzies now!
But that is a beautiful drawing of Astrid! Of course I’m a little biased toward torties! Since I have been owned by two different ones!
OMC, you already got something awesome! After Sparkle died, Alana sent my human a sketch of her, and it was so beautiful it made her cry.
Uh oh… looks like someone’s gonna end up on Santa’s NAUGHTY list! 😉 MOL xx Roxy & Tigerlino <3
The drawing is simply divine! What a precious gift.
Mommy says that is not much bad mischief at all. Your beautiful Tiffany lamp is still in one piece. Ours had to go to the trash incinerator – now that’s bad mischief!
You kittehz do get extra pointz for peein on the table runner, though. HahaMeow!!!
Oh, oh…somebody’s getting coal in their stocking! Just kidding. What would a cat do with coal?
Noodle and crew
Haha. they did get coal. Charcoal for the sketch! :p – Crepes.
Oh, naughty kitties! (But I bet someone had a lot of fun!)
Y’all need to be good – at least until ya get your presents!
