Around the mouse-house

The cats are having more fun with the bags than any toys around the mouse-house lately.
Audrey loves the noisy, crinkly ones the best.

BUT...throw an empty wrapping paper roll on the floor and she heads for the hills. =^..^=
She's adorkable.

My all-time favorite Christmas song ...

                                         Breath of Heaven 
                                                                                (Mary's song) 

I love the Vince Gill version. If you find it, listen to it and cry. I always do. lol

Other than no's beginning to look a lot like Christmas.
There has been only one Christmas....the rest are anniversaries. W.J. Cameron

  1. It's funny what cats find to play with. Crumpled up balls of paper are the cheapest toys around, I find.

  2. My sweetie's cat loves to play with crumpled up candy wrappers. Oh, and peanut M&M's. She will kick those things all over the house!

  3. My cat is afraid of bags, plastic or otherwise. The noise seems to bother her quite a bit. A big change since previous family cats seemed to think playing with bags was big fun.
    Hope you get snow soon!

  4. I love that last line!! So true. :-). I'll have to try the paper bag with Tuppence. Thanks. Have a wonderful evening, Deb.

  5. I love that last line too, never heard it before but it is so true.

    I think my cats would be perfectly happy for me to leave paper and ribbons around all year round for them to play and sleep in. Oh, and boxes, lots of boxes !

    Love that Christmas card with the kitties peeking around a door.

  6. Deb, I'm wondering about Sierra and her little chinny-chin-chin. No news is good news, right?
    Oh, and I love that quote by Cameron!
    A friend in Nebraska ><>

  7. I may borrow your term 'adorkable'--it describes several of our felines in residence!
    I suppose we are saving trees by substituting plastic bags for paper--a brown paper bag has so many pleasant uses--not least of which is entertainment for the cats.

  8. I have an old Motown Christmas LP, from
    the 60's. My favourite is Silent Night,
    sung by The Temptations..Brilliant!

    And, Audrey!x Audrey!x What can l say...
    In the bag again..! Bless!x

  9. Is that a little elephant? Squeeeeee!

  10. My fur girls are the same about bags. Although Sooty's favourite (right now) are tin foil balls, which she chases & returns. With them still been in kittenish stage, I wrapped presents in paper this year so they could have fun after gift opening. Paper bags from the LCBO are the best (empty of course)

  11. I love the last quote too! Oh how the kitties make Christmas so much fun! Can't beleive we all have such warm weather....hugs and warm wishes!

  12. Lots of things to keep the kitties occupied, I see!

  13. Your tree is also lovely. thanks for visiting me.

  14. Deb, cats are so funny and cute. I sure miss that! Have a wonderful holiday with your 2 and 4 legged family..Merry Christmas..Judy

  15. Loving this post! Love Audrey. Love the tree ornaments. Love the last photo. Love the thoughts! Everything!
