Tabby Tattletale Tuesday

Well, I'm a bit hissed off because MY couch that mom and dad ordered years weeks ago still has not arrived.  They promised us 3 weeks and now it's 5 weeks...and Christmas is coming...and I don't know what I'm going to do if I have to sit on a ::gasp:: chair!

I consoled myself with a toy that still faintly smells of a certain silver tabby mancat.  Mom is tricky and hides our toys so all of them aren't out all the time.  Some of my brothers and sisters are fooled into thinking they are new toys.  I'm not that easily suckered.

Our stockings have been hung by the fire.  It's getting a bit crowded.  As long as there is room for my stocking I'm good with it.  There are advantages to having so many stockings since I've heard that Santa is unlikely to miss a house with so many of them to be filled.

Our Bridge Angels have a special place for their stockings.  Santa doesn't fill them with toys because the stockings are already filled with memories.

I love the Bridge Stockings. Now the Woman wishes she had gotten each of her cats their own stocking instead of just having one we have all always shared...

Ginger, at least you're getting a new couch at some point! I have no idea when I'll ever get a new cat tree!

Looks like you are ready for Christmas at your house. We love the idea of stockings for the angel cats that are full of memories. That's really great.

The couch will come, Ginger, don't fret. Use the bed instead for the time being.

Like the idea of stocking for each, especially for the Bridge
Angels.

You can come and share my couch if you'd like, my little Gingernut ;) You kitties (and Grete) are lucky to have your own stockings. We have to share one.

The Mum says that she likes the stockings filled with memories the best.

We hope your couch comes soon.

Our Mom just LOVES the idea of having stockings hung for the bridge animals who were here before us! As long as they don't get any of our treats, we're okay with it too!

The Island Cats said...

Ginger, we love all your stockings! We know they will get filled with lots of toys and goodies!! And it's nice thta you hang stockings for the ones that came before.

We hope your couch shows up soon! Our humans ordered a new dishwashing thingey about a month ago and it still hasn't shown up!! But they still have the old one.

We love the idea of a place for the Bridge Angel stockings. Mom had a really hard time when she saw Sniffie's stocking this year. She hung her stocking along with ours.

Your Bridge Angel stockings filled with memories are wonderful and make the mom's eyes leaky. Fabulous idea.

But we can't believe your couch hasn't yet been delivered! That's crummy customer service, we think!

Mariodacat said...

Gasp! You poor deprived kitty not to have a couch to snuggle on. You can come over and share mine.

The Whiskeratti said...

It's just terrible that your couch isn't here yet. But we do luff the stockings.

Cat said...

I love the idea of stockings for your Bridge angels...how wonderful that they are filled with memories!!!!

I'm going to put one up for my Molly who went to the Bridge in September, this is my first Christmas in 18 years without her.

Tell Cory I like to sing at about 4 AM better. Unless Ichiro or Chey sings then, then I wait until 5 or 5:30 (whenever everyone is back to sleep)

That is so very touching. Stockings filled with memories! That must be the best gift ever!

Ginger, you are so poetic!

Sorry 'bout your couch, though. Maybe there will be a Christmas miracle and it will arrive before the big day.

Katnip Lounge said...

Miss Ginger, you are a savvy LadyCat! We think our Mommy might be pulling the same stunt with our toys too. Gotta work on that...

We love your stockings filled with memories...Mommy got a little choked up.

It is adorable seeing all those little stockings hanging over the fireplace, waiting for Santa. And seeing the Bridge Angels' stocking made us feel warm inside in our hearts ~ 'cos we should never forget those who have gone before.

We sure hope that couch arrives in time for Christmas, so you can all hang out leisurely on it together. We love the stockings!

Your couch is becoming a couch saga!!!!

Lovely stockings!

Junior and Orion said...

Hmph! We can't believe your couch hasn't arrived!!! We hope your humans get a discount for the extra time it is taking to arrive.

Just look at all those stockings! We like that the Angels stockings are filled with memories.

Eric and Flynn said...

The Bridge stockings full of memories is a lovely idea. We hope your couch arrives before Christmas.
