ribbons and bows

I'm just taking a little break from cat-sitting & last minute preparations to enjoy some hot chocolate

 and my little friend, Audrey.
and her momma who just woke up.

She has been such a help with the wrapping. She's not much on co-ordinating colours but she's all about ribbons and bows. To her delight, I love to add tree ornaments to the bows. She just thinks that is all that and a bag of cat treats.  "Thanks Audrey"

We finally have just a bit of snow to give us a white Christmas. Christmas has to be white or we Canadians feel cheated. Just enough snow, no need to shovel; just enjoy the beauty of it all.

Food was delivered for the ferals tonight and I could see the little cat tracks so I know they are still around. I have only seen 1 in many weeks.
Extra food was put down tonight because it is getting cold. I won't let Christmas celebrations stop me from feeding the homeless cats. It's just another day for them.

Oh, it's getting exciting, isn't it? This will be a Christmas to remember for us as it is the first one that our grand-daughter will probably remember. We will see Christmas once again through the eyes of a child. I think we all have a little of that still in us on Christmas morning. I know I do.

Off to bed. Tomorrow is my busiest day for cat-sitting this year. I hope they're all NICE and not NAUGHTY.

Hugs, Deb


  1. Audrey, how can you sit there so calmly with all those ribbons around?? We'd be going crazy with those!!

    Merry Christmas!!

  2. Merry Christmas!
    Blessings to you for all your kindness.

  3. Merry Christmas to You and Yours. Little Audrey is a beauty! She's growing up so fast.

  4. Deb, what a glorious collection of Christmas images you have. Audrey under the Christmas tree... magical! - I love her face. Sounds like you will have a very special and magical Christmas - snow and viewed through a childs eye... sigh.
    And Deb, thank you so much for praying for Charlie - he needs it so badly.
    Merry Christmas to you and yours - and all the beautiful felines in your care.

  6. What a wonderful Christmas you have in store for you!
    It will be the joys of a first Christmas all over again with Audrey. Maybe Annie too! It is so sad to think she may have never experienced a loving Christmas.
    When You look into her eyes , you can see something very deep and magical in her gaze. Like she is communicating with you with her gaze! (All this from just the little, tiny photo of her.) God love and bless them both. And to you, the specialest of God's special blessings for all the love and care you offer to his little ones. We love you.

  7. Merry Christmas to you and yours, Deb!


  8. I hope you are sitting and relaxing this Christmas Eve evening and getting ready to dream of sugar plums Deb!
    Have a beautiful day tomorrow!
