FAST AWAY THE OLD YEAR PASSES!

Before this year and this decade fade into the past, I want to post this Christmas 2009 memory.  These are my grandkitties, Sox and Missy who are both a year and a half old.  Sox is the floofy brown male tabby with white socks, and Missy is the little girl tabby with white.

They both came over with their daddy (my son Ryan) for Christmas Day and stayed until after dinner.  They  travel very well and visit often enough that they have become accustomed to my home.  In fact, every time they come over, Ryan must run around looking for Sox when it's time to leave, because he never wants to go.  I mean he loves being in the car, so what other explanation could there be?

Could it be that grandma always has tons of food choices available, both wet and dry?  That catnip is always abundant, and there are a myriad of toys strewn here, there and everywhere?  Everything a cat could ever want.

Missy is the most dominant kitty I have ever encountered.  We sometimes call her "Hissy" because that is her preferred method of keeping everyone in order.  She keeps all three of my cats in line, too -- well, maybe except for Domino who just refuses to acknowledge her presence.  Domino's too dignified to even bother with her.

Anyway, here's Sox under the Christmas tree, and Missy sitting in the wing chair (normally Dante's favourite spot).






The next two pictures show Sox playing with the new Turbo Track that the 3-Ds got for Christmas!  You can see Missy approaching.  With just a look she displaced Sox, and took over the very spot he had been sitting.  Sox knows not to mess with her!






Anyway, the grandkitties had a marvelous time.  I can hardly wait until they come back to visit again -- in the near future I hope.

Of course, the near future is the New Year, so these memories, like 2009, are quickly fading into the past.  That's why it was important to record them here for PAWsterity!

Have a great New Year's Eve, efurryone!
