Remembering Our Pets This Holiday Season

trafficThe post below was written several years ago but still applies today. Only today, I no longer live in traffic ridden north Jersey. I live in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware where I can shop peacefully without the horrendous traffic. I will shop for gifts for my two cats in some of the nearby pet stores. Among their gifts will be some healthy treats,and some toys with catnip. I may also buy some new, soft blankets for them to snuggle up in. Remember our pets this holiday season and after looking at my post below, I’m glad I don’t have to do my shopping this year in north Jersey!cattree

After 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.
