Humph! I'm having a "bah, humbug" moment.  All those presents - and what do I get to open? A chocolate scented teddy bear.  On the plus side, I love the smell - but on the down side, I've chewed and it just tastes like teddy bear.  Mom and Stephie both got some tasty chocolate spoons for coffee from Samantha and Ryan, but did they think of my needs? Nope.  I really could do things with those spoons, but Mom said, "Nope." Hardly fair.

So here is our in-Whittier family picture.  Can you believe it.  The Otto and Vivika Cats even sat still for the family shot.  There was a bit of yowling going on for a minute, but they settled down.  They are just big babies.  I barked instructions until Mom said it wasn't needed.

Dad got  a scratch, so he gave Otto to Stephie.  That was what Otto wanted anyway. Spoilt brat. My folks are just way, way too patient with those cats.  I just don't understand it.


  1. Unbelievable! Uh, the bear, I meant. Not the cats (THOSE I understand completely, having 7 of them as my furblings).
    Merry Christmas, everyone!

  3. MERRY CHRISTMAS! Hope you had a wonderful day yesterday. I really like the family portrait. My peeps have never managed to get a picture with all of us in it. Don't know why. Hmmm... maybe it's 'cause there are twelve of us? Or... maybe it's 'cause we're pretty unco-operative cats. purrs

  4. I see that Greg got to hold the superior pet.


  5. Howdy Henry, sorry about your mum and Steph not letting you taste their chocolate spoons (which by the way, mum says she loves the sound of them!). I bet you offered them a chew of your chocolate smelling teddy. Sheesh. Oh well, hopefully your bear will last longer than their spoons. Take care little mate. See ya in the New Year. No worries, and love, Stella and Rory

  6. Why you took a truly great holiday picture. Your peeps look almost as cute as you! I think a teddy bear is a really nice gift, I cat a ricky raccoon.
