Really I have!
If you must skip our house though, I do understand.
I know you are very busy this special time of year.
And even more so as the big day draws near.
But hear me for just a moment purrlease....
Because I'm sure my case applies to many other kitties, both far and near.
You see I have no thumbs, although some kitties do.
And so there is no possible way for me to do those things, she tells others I do.
Yes, I am a good boy. Loving, good and kind.
Ferocious? Oh yes! But never mind.
Because although its very true, I'd never hurt your reindeer or the little birdie in the tree (or dining room wreath or the deer under the glass).
Except maybe those voles, but they eat all her flowers, so only for her I do this, don't you see?
And though she may tell all kinds of stories about my adventures and such.
Please keep in mind that I have no thumbs and so really I can't do all that much. Especially to the Christmas tree in the dining room because the door is kept shut.
So I was thinking just today, because I have been a good boy, surely you had toys and tuna fish for me....
But please feel free to skip our house and deliver my toys to those kitties in need.
I have a warm and loving home, and more toys than I possibly want or need.
And good food a plenty, especially when her plate is full and I see it unattended.
You know too many are homeless, too many are unloved, too many are in shelters
and just as important though....
I really don't want to be responsible if you take the lane to our house,
and slip and fall on your bum.
P.S. She made me do it. You'd feel the same way if she tied a cold bell to your tail. Right?
