Having had such a nice Christmas ourselves, it would have been just plain rude not to get the cats a little something. Not that they really care. They normally end up playing in the gift boxes anyway. But I happened upon another fabulous fur find and couldn’t resist getting the little boogers a treat from Santa.
I got them a big, soft bed and a new scratching/play toy combo gym thing.
While Gus was immediately hypnotized by the carpeted ball tree, Scarlett gave me the “I asked for a Play Station 4” look.
Scarlett pouted for a minute as Gus executed his attack.
It took a few minutes for them to declare the new bed habitable, but they eventually got in it.
The bed is plenty big enough for both of them to relax in it comfortably. This isn’t exactly the sleeping configuration I had imagined. From the looks of it, it wasn’t what Scarlett had in mind either.
After a while, Scarlett settled into a position with a little more breathing more. As for Gus, I decided to have a little fun with him and put one of those paper “ribbons” on him. At first, he acted like it was some debilitatingly heavy back brace even though it couldn’t have weighed 1/8 of an ounce. He went and sat in the bed with Scarlett to recover from his condition.
Then he forgot he had a condition and a back brace and decided that hangy-ball needed catching.
Mmmm, tastes like salmon.
Time for a nap.
Burst of energy!
Time for another nap.
He slowly overcame his condition, got up from the bed…
and started to step out of his back brace to check out the carpet ball tree from another angle…
Then he got distracted and had to sniff Eugene’s gift boxes…
Nearly free of his shackles, he spotted Eugene’s egg-shaped lip gloss that was evidently much more entertaining than his gifts. He and Scarlett then spent the next 30 minutes chasing it around the living room.
I should have just gotten them lip gloss.
And a Play Station 4.
Y’all keep it real,
