I know it's early and I did tell family that Santas come out in December but I snuck this guy into the kitchen tonight.Christmas and I'm starting to put things away in the freezer now.
He has a kind face. I like that.
I figured Santa was toast. She has to inspect the additions to our home but she considers this kitchen decoration absolutely useless. She tried to eat the basket contents but gave up quite quickly when it did not meet her standards. Plus she heard "No, no, no Audrey." Which really means nothing to her but she'll not look at him again.
One of my readers made a wonderful suggestion if you are cat-sitting for travellers. If the cat or cats are shy and do not like to be handled, sitting down on the sofa and reading a book out loud gets them used to your comforting voice. She said this worked very well for her with a shy cat. I did have a cat years back that I would read out loud to and this would lull the kitty off to sleep. It is a great suggestion and one for you future cat-sitters to make note of. "Thanks Christine".
