Jay’s Christmasses

It is holiday time again and of course I am very excited. I have been such a good cat this year that I just know Santa will be as good to me as he always is although I think it will be hard to top last’s year’s present. I know I told you about it before but isn’t it beautiful?


I love hanging out on the top of my five foot condo

I spend almost as much time there as I do sleeping on mum’s legs in front of the fire.

Either way I have it made. I’ve done all my shopping and wrapped the presents. Let me say that Christmas paper and cat claws are not a good mix but it’s the thought that counts. At least that’s what mum always says.

Last year in our video we told you all about our preparations for Christmas so this year we decided to show you a few of things we did on Christmas Eve and Day in past years. If it seems like I am spoiled, well that’s as it should be!

As soon as mum wakes up on the 24th I start suggesting it is time to hang our stockings and I go to the window to see if Santa is in the sky yet.


I know Santa does not come until it is dark but I can hope, can’t I?

Then mum tells me it has to be dark out first. I don’t understand why we have to wait but mum says it’s tradition. I don’t know what that word means but she uses it a lot at this time of the year.

We always have a small live tree but we also have an artificial one in the hallway. The branches are hard with glitter and fake snow on them. Whenever I am not pleased about something and I want to make a point I wait until mum can see me and then I chew on one of the branches which always gets her attention. I have to pay her back for some of things she makes me wear during the holidays.

Here is our Christmas 2014 video



Whatever your traditions or whatever you are doing during the holidays, mum and I hope you have a purrfect one.

    Awesome video, Susan! Such great video footage and such gorgeous pictures of Jay (of course!) and your place at Christmas. The cozy and peaceful feel of your place really comes across. Once again, the music is perfect and I love how you always tell a story with your videos.

    Wishing you & Jay a wonderful holiday season!

      Thanks so much Seema for all your comments about the video. I try hard but it does not always succeed. I am glad the feeling of peace came through, though, as that was the thing I was most hoping would work. Of course it helps that I have a subject like Jay to fill the screen. He does most of the work! He and I hope your holiday season is filled with much joy and peace and that 2015 is fruitful.

    Great blog post and video. Reminds me of the true meaning of Christmas. The perfect video to watch on Christmas Eve! Jay is such a beautiful boy, and the love that the two of you share is inspiring. He is so photogenic and personable. It’s almost as if when he was born someone forgot to tell him that he was a cat! I promise to never tell him that he is 😉

    Much love to you and Jay at Christmas and always,

      Thank you Denise. Yes, please do not tell him he is a cat. He can be a handful sometimes as it is! Jay sends you a huge hand butt and leg rub and we both send you love and hopes for a Merry Christmas and an enlightening 2015.
