When I suggested they write letters to Santa Paws, there was a lot of hissing, disdainful looks, and EJ jumping up and down in the background with excitement. So we compromised.
Last year, I put up a Christmas tree and stockings and lights for them, but not this year. If you’d like to send them a Christmas gift (they all celebrate, except Britta but she likes gifts) here are some suggestions along with fun facts about each of the regulars.
Thank you for all of your support and love this year. We just celebrated two years as the caretakers of this motley crew and no kittens. That’s a good thing. Several could be candidates for an indoor life if that strikes your fancy. They’ve put their trust in us so we are honored.
