MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!!! from Stacey
Just wanted to take a minute and wish all the Pet People a MERRY CHRISTMAS! Hey, it's not over yet, so I'm still in time. I don't know what your house was like the last couple of days, but mine has been crazy. So, I didn't have time to post this sooner. And besides, if I did, I wouldn't have Christmas pictures of Shadow to share!
As always, we had stockings for the babies this morning. Shadow really enjoyed all her new toys and even shared some with her brother Ranger (the other indoor cat). They have almost played with each other, but they somehow manage to stop before they really get carried away. I think they will be good buds, but it is going to take time. She gets closer and closer to Lucy (the youngest dog) every day. Without being forced to, that is. Lucy wants to play with Shadow so badly, she can hardly stand it. But, she is being very patient and not pushing the issue. She just observes.
I was amazed with Shadow tonight. Dragon's kids and the grandkids came over for dinner. I wasn't sure how she would react to a houseful of people, especially with a 5 and a 7 year old running around. She was right in the middle of everything, all night. The boys had ray guns making loud noises and she never left the room. In fact, most of the time, she was right in the middle of us in the floor, with all the bags and wrapping paper everywhere. Naturally, she had to investigate an empty gift bag. And the box! You can spend a fortune on the coolest cat toys in the history of the world, and what will the cat go to??? The dadburn cardboard box!! Never fails.
I had trouble deciding what Christmas pictures from today to post. There are so many cute ones. I love the one of Lucy licking her chops, waiting to see the next goodie that Daddy Dragon will pull from the stocking. And it was hard to choose from Shadow and her new toys or Shadow as the Spirit of Christmas Present. But, how can you resist a cat with bows??? Anyone that wants to see more, I can email you some. Poor Auntie Sandy is being deluged with Shadow pictures and videos. But, she asked for it.
Thanks Sandy, for giving me the best Christmas present. Dragon and I just love our little girl. She just melts your heart. That mean ole Dragon is totally wrapped around her little paw. And she knows it.
