cat-christmasAfter work today, I decided that I cannot delay my holiday shopping another day. I waited too long already and had to buy lots of gifts. I got in my car and headed out to the mall. Living in North Jersey where traffic is normally a nightmare proved even worse than could be imagined. Infamous Route 4 was a literal parking lot! When I went to enter the mall, I realized that mall security had blocked off the entrances! Cars were zig zagging all over the place. You really never know what to expect in this state with it’s horrendous traffic all the time!  Luckily, I knew a back entrance that not many people are not aware of. I got in, parked the car and fought the crowds. After I made all the purchases of “people” gifts, I had to shop for my two cats. Off I went to the pet store lugging so many bags of bulky gifts that I felt as if I would tip over!  The cats had to have their presents! I bought a bunch of cat toys, a stocking and some other cat items.  Why do we do this? I would feel that the holiday is not complete without the gifts for the cats. They already have a toy box full of toys from previous Christmasses. Most of the toys are either under the furniture or hidden in some special place. Surely these won’t be found until I sell the condo!  I put the gifts under the tree on Christmas morning like I would for anyone else. Out come my cats Mollie and Millie. They sniff, swat, roll around with them for awhile then, they’re done. Another Christmas with the cats! Well after all, they are part of the family.
