Well, it is Wordless Wednesday, but Mom said we could not remain quiet as she had intended. Yes, she said that we must confess our naughtiness once again. Though we saw her put our Secret Paws gifts under the Christmas Tree, she says that Lily’s transgression today could find them becoming Valentine’s gifts.

So…here’s what happened today. Mom was baking cookies and Lily kept trying to get into everything, including the shortening, which Mom found her licking. Needless to say, she was not happy with Lily Olivia’s behavior but was willing to cut her a little slack. Then IT happened. Mom had to turn her back for a nano second to open the door to the catio for Giulietta. When she turned back, she found Lily Olivia standing on the cookie sheet nomming an unbaked cookie!

Though he was not the one involved in the cookie incident, Lily tried to make up by giving Dad seven kisses at bedtime. Mom said that even had Lily Olivia given her the seven kisses, that would not have been enough of an apology!

Can you believe it? We can’t seem to get through even one day without somebuddy acting out. It really isn’t our fault. The decorations and unusual activities around the holidays upset our normal routine and get us all confused. It makes it so easy to forget our manners and get into trouble. So we think it is totally unfair to withhold our loot. Please cross your paws that we can make it through the day so that we can get our gifts on Christmas morning.

Finally, we’d like to share our first ever Meowy Christmas card for those of you who did not receive it through either snail or e-mail.


Meowy Christmas


Ho, ho, ho, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

p.s. Look at those innocent faces. Santa will never believe we haven’t been purrfectly good all year!

Gee, these accidents sometimes happen. I’m sure Olivia didn’t realize she was behaving badly. She probably wanted to give you the thumbs up by tasting the cookie…Give her the benefit of the doubt.

Lily Olivia, we think Angel Leo may have had a hand (paw!) in your transgression.He would have loved the shortening in the cookie dough 🙂 You all do look very angelic on the card and we have grabbed it for our sidebar. Thank you!

Merry Christmas to all of you!! And to your pawrents too! May your day be filled with love and joy and lots of merrymaking! 🙂

your pals,
the critters in the cottage xo

Yes, indeed. All that out of the ordinary stuff confuses us, too. Surely Santa knows this, and that you have all been GOOD. 🙂

We love you, dear pals. Merry Christmas!

Oh those Kitties. I am sure they were testing the dough to make sure it was safe for human consumption. I have been accused of the same.

Merry Christmas and blessings in the New Year – WOOF!

The Island Cats December 24, 2014 at 12:35 pm

Oh your mom should cut you all some slack because it’s the holidays and us kitties get so excited with everything that’s going on. Like take me, for instance. I’ve climbed the tree several times (and plan to do it some more), and while the mom doesn’t like it, she kinda understands that I just can’t help myself.

So did Lily get to keep the cookie that she nommed? The mom says she probably would have just baked it with all the others, because the heat would have killed any germs. MOL!

Honestly, it sounds just like it is around here! Poor mom, with 2 dogs and a cat now, has to shut us out of the kitchen completely when she’s cooking. (Rhette drank dad’s soup one day and the scrambled eggs mom was making.) I am sure Santa will understand and you’ll get everything you want! Merry Christmas! Love Dolly

I think you’re all safe. I’ve seen Peep #1 nibblin’ on an unbaked shortbread cookie and not once has she ever received a lump of coal in her stockin’.

MERRY CHRISTMAS my friends!!!

We agree – it isn’t your fault that you’ve been getting into trouble! How could the humans ever expect us kitties to leave the Christmas decorations and food alone. That is just plain crazy.
We love your Christmas card! You all look so festive. We will have to get Mom to print out a copy so we cab add to our collection. We have all the Christmas cards we’ve received displayed on the wall in the kitchen.
Sampy sends as many kisses to Astrid as there are snowflakes at the North Pole! We are all sending love and hugs.

Gosh – I think it was acceptable to have a nom of an unbaked cookie if in fact it was left UNGUARDED for even a nanosecond! However, I hope that by now you’ve been forgiven and that Christmas Eve will be QUIET in your house……Santa likes to bring stuff to QUIET kitties you know!!!!!

Happy Christmas Eve!

MOL, MOL! We don’t even stand a chance at finding some goodies, cause they are nit available in our den…due to dietary constraints…sheesh, last year they were all ovfur the place! Peeps, they are strange beings sometimes…but meowmy says its worth it to drop 4 sizes in 5 months……Pipo better be careful or he will be doing those dietary constraints soon, MOL!

Did the cookie taste yummy? We bet the lard did, MOL!
Mewwy Catmas, and we hope you get to enjoy your loot!
