Third Day of Christmas!

Merry Christmas! Today, as the title says, is the third day of Christmas! We hope you all are having as merry a time as we have been! The kitties have been enjoying lots of Christmasy things. Unfortunately, they know that Sandy Paws has already come so they don't have to behave any more so every time I try to take a picture of their cuteness and playfullness and Christmas joy, they stop. Dead in their tracks sometimes! Little brats...

Star tried to steal other kitties presents as I was wrapping. She tried to chew bows off several packages. She tried to steal her own present toys before they were off the cardboard. And the second they were off, she went nuts and flipped around like a kitten! Then I got the camera out and she just sat there..

Leo was an especially good boy with packages and ribbons and the tree. I opened and removed new feather toys from the cardboard and tossed them at him and he caught them in mid air and flipped them around! Then I got the camera out and he just sat there...

Monday was not only the second day of Christmas, it was also boxing day, and Star celebrated by jumping into every box, even boxes with boxes in them! She even balanced all four paws on the edge of a box full of boxes! Then I got the camera out and she jumped down and just sat there.. I mean, her toes were even splayed, half on each side of the cardboard side! It was amazing! But camera.. no cuteness.. *sigh*

The only pictures I have are of them NOT doing anything cute, but since it’s all I have that’s what I’m going to share with you.

Star the Sly
Camera! I'm outta here!

Yup, I was just flipping this thing like a kitten, but, sorry, camera!

Leo the Loony Lion
I know I had it airborn, but that was before you got out the camera.

Can't trick me, ma, two toys does not mean twice as likely to get me on camera with one. See how neatly I lined them up, too bad you couldn't capture that moment!

Nice try trying to sneak a picture hiding behind the chair, but uh.. I can see through that just as easily as you can! Sorry

The ONLY toy I could capture either of them with.. Star playing with her old Kong Kick-A-Roo!
Love my kick-a-roo, but the second you put that camera away, I'm back at the new feather toys! Gotta get my licks in before Leo chews all the feathers off them!

So there’s my ornery kitties! I hope yours are letting you get better pictures than mine are!

Merry Christmas wishes for hearts of Gold, Common Sense and Purr!!

Looks like a whole lotta fun going on at your place and I can see y'all had yourselves a Merry little Christmas!

We do that to our Mum too - she watches us play and we see her sneaking the camera from behind her back and we pretend to be asleep!! We love that game and it makes mum say some naughty words!
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

Did you tell then that the feather balls were from Moose???

Yes, Kizzie will never pose either. They only do interesting stuff when the camera isn't there.
