So here are some unretouched pictures of the cats with their Christmas presents. They got quite a bit, but not as much as I had hoped to get them (being broke sucks). But they will be getting the rest of the stuff I had hoped to get at some point soon I hope - I wanted to get stuff from some of my fellow bloggers out there because they have great stuff. But I should be caught up a soon so I am not too worried. And this way it will be like getting two Christmases.
If you look you can see how I had the dog treats mixed in with the cat stuff - but they got taken away as soon as I noticed. And they cats couldn't have cared less about them at the time - it wasn't until later that they went after them.
Oh, in once picture - the first one - Barney is actually playing with one of the older toys they have - it was made by the vet assistants daughter and is one of Lola's favorites (all the cats love it but Lola liking something is rare and so it makes it a big deal she likes it).
We didn't put the toys in their stockings this year because there is no way that they wsould have survived until morning. We just kind of put them out and told them Santa had left them all in the big box to make it easy for the kitties to see them all.
Update: Ok, I should have mentioned this - and they were noticed by Inigo Flufflebum and d'Artagnan Rumblepurr - the kitties did get some springs this year (and a new plague ratsie for Barney - he loves the tail and his old one is "missing" half somehow) because I wasn't sure if the little cats would like them or not. We had them years ago and the older 2 weren't impressed but since Alfie is a big fan (and apparently so are Inigo an d'Artagnan) we thought we would try them again. I knew we could always send them over to Alfie if the kitties didn't like them. Unfortunately for Alfie they did like the springs, so they are staying here. They actually got so crazy with one that it is stuck in the mesh on their tunnel.
