Getting in the Holiday Spirit With Our New Fur Child

Getting in the holiday spirit

The holidays are officially underway. We had a wonderful Thanksgiving with our families and ended the weekend with a gorgeous snowstorm. It was the perfect day to get out the holiday decorations and spend some time with our new little fur child – Miss Kitty! (Click here if you missed that post.)

Now, the point of this post is just to show off some fun photos I took with Miss Kitty, and what I imagine she might have on her Christmas list this year… I’m sharing those ideas at the end of the post.

Oh yeah, we’re those pet parents…I’m pretty sure Miss Kitty asked Santa for more sane owners for Christmas this year!

Our local mall, the Fox River Mall, has “pet nights” every Monday night. So, I thought it would be fun to take her to it! (And my husband reluctantly agreed.) She did very well! There was a family with two dogs ahead of us, and she didn’t even seem to mind. Although, my husband was a bit afraid she was going to bolt or dig her claws into Santa… so, he wouldn’t let her sit on Santa’s lap, haha.

She’s been settling in so well by us and has been a wonderful little helper when it comes to decorating. She also hasn’t climbed the Christmas tree (yet) or tried to wreck anything. She’s definitely going to be on Santa’s good list this year!

She’s curious of all the new decorations coming out, though!

Miss Kitty’s Christmas List

And for everyone who thinks it’s just me who is the crazy pet parent…This is what my husband thinks is on the cat’s list this year…He really wants to get her a “cat jungle gym.”

I’m loving all the funny little cat toys out there… like Pusheen teasers and Christmas toys. I’m also intrigued by those self-cleaning cat litter boxes. Does anyone have one?

Needless to say, we’re excited to buy cat Christmas presents this year! Haha.

      Thank you so much!

  2. Funny!! That jungle gym/tree looks really cool!

      Santa just might be bringing her a cat jungle gym for Christmas this year, haha!

    OMG Miss Kitty is precious! I wish our baby was friendly enough to see Santa. She is very sweet to us, but is very shy to others. I love that cat tower, Jake and I want to get our kitty one too.

    1. haveclotheswilltravel says:

      I can’t believe she was so calm about it! I think we’ll be getting that cat tower too. Lots of happy kitties this holiday season, haha.

  4. We got Rubix a cat tree and while she has caught on to the scratching post portion of it, she hasn’t figured out that she can jump up onto the various levels and does not seem to care about it. HA! We have placed her into the top and she sat nicely looking out the window so I think she LIKES it up there but she does not go up on her own. Such a typical cat!

    1. haveclotheswilltravel says:

      Oh my gosh, that is too funny! Cats will be cats!

  5. Oh, she is such a dear. Heck, I would NEVER take either of our cats to something like that….they might go crazy!!
    Our one kitty loves to sit under the tree, and occasionally an ornament is off. But we are lucky too!!

    1. haveclotheswilltravel says:

      Aw, thank you, Jodie! Haha, and that’s not too bad if you only have the occasional ornament off!
