Merry Catmus to the lovely, helpful peeps on the Litter Tray fsmile

A fantastic furry day to all the Litter Tray regulars, particularly cozie, TCN and Fluffy, who have all spent this year keeping me and Mr Cory in peak health and happiness.

Mr Cory, who is dozing after stealing a smoked trout, joins me in wishing you all the festive best.

Thanks and the same to you all!

I'll have an even more cat-filled day than usual tomorrow as Celia's is short of feeders and cleaners, so I'm helping out. I'm also on call for cat-related emergencies, but of course hoping not to be called out this year. (I spent a particularly festive Christmas Day two years ago with two policemen searching for traumatised cats in a burnt-out drugs den in Tottenham. I'm hoping tomorrow will be less interestingsmile ).

First Christmas in a multi-feline household.
Love it. Perplexedkitten loves the decorations and lights. He's adorable. smile

Merry Christmas mumsnet moggies :D our bitey little bugger went to the cattery today as we're away from tomorrow until the new year. She's been sent with DPs dressing gown, her turkey wet food, a Christmas stocking, five jingly balls and her laser pointer :D DSD did come home in tears after dropping her off though so we had extra cuddles and stories about the cat.

I hope my cats don't find out what goes on in other cat-staff's houses. I don't have any decorations, so nothing for them to destroy play with, and I'm vegetarian - so no interesting bits of turkey or whatever for them to eat.

They'd feel very hard done-by if they discovered what they're missing ...

Happy Christmas to all from my lovely tabby boy and thanks for all the great advice.

Merry Christmas!

Fluffy cat is in a cattery because we went away. Bet he loves us.

I hope there's no emergencies tomorrow TCN.

A whole smoked trout? shock

All the best to everyone who won't be here later on. I have to go off now to wrap a few last presents and do some more Xmas Eve chore-ettes but I'll be back at 12.

Well against all expectations, Seniorboy has just hit the big 2-0.

Merry Xmas to all from The Birthday Boy.

A happy Xmas to you all.

I have a bit of a crush on Mr. Cory. He would make an excellent provider. Good marriage material. fgrin

I doubt your cats feel in the least bit hard done by TCN.

And happy 20th to Senior Birthday Boy! A cat of distinction! Snuggly, purry hugs to him.

CatCushion Thu 25-Dec-14 00:11:54

Happy catmus to all! Our cat is sporting a go-faster stripe of stitches where she has had a cut sewn up, so is a house cat for this yuletide season.

Happy birthday senior boy (that's an impressive age!)

AnotherEmma Thu 25-Dec-14 00:20:29

Merry Christmas to all of you and your cats!
My two kittens are in a cattery as DH and I are away for Christmas... I MISS THEM fsad
Already counting down the days until we can collect them!

Fluffycloudland77 Thu 25-Dec-14 08:16:39

Happy birthday Senior Boy.

Happy Christmas everyone!
We don't open the main pressies til 2pm so Ophie is keeping them safe..

Catmint Thu 25-Dec-14 13:33:58

Merry Christmas! Our cat is in deep disgrace for swiping the head off the icing snowman next to the gingerbread house, chewing his hat and spitting the chewed up bits onto floor. X

AWholeLottaNosy Thu 25-Dec-14 13:36:38

Aw happy Xmas to you and all your kitties! Mine is going to have a very happy Xmas with all the leftover chicken he will be having later ( hate turkey...) smile

Wolfiefan Thu 25-Dec-14 13:59:48

Gorgeous cats!
Our old girl is 18. She kept us awake yowling between midnight and 3am. DH thinks she was disturbed by the arrival of odd wrapped things that don't belong in her house!!
She has been groomed (long haired) given catnip and has had her first two pills of the day!
Wondering if this'll be her last Christmas? Lots of turkey and squirty cream later!!!

AnotherEmma Thu 25-Dec-14 16:52:14

Some photos of Ron from the last few weeks! He loves climbing the tree (much to my husband's dismay) and also quite likes wrapping paper.

Corygal Thu 25-Dec-14 17:40:40

Happy Birthday darling Senior Boy. What a big day this is for the cozie family - rest assured families across the land (weli, rather bijou families such as myself and Mr C) are thinking of you and hoping Senior Boy has enjoyed his full Christmas dinner.

Yes it was a whole flaming trout, thank you for reminding me cozie. He topped it up with turkey from M&S specially bought for him plus bacon rolls (also M&S, that animal costs me an arm and a leg) and is now comatose on the radiator.

I dropped round Xmas dinner to my flu-bound neighbour and the little lad got outraged when he saw turkey leaving the premises.

At 2pm on Christmas Day we had to make the decision that it was the end of the road for our lovely, gentle ginger boy.

He was blind and deaf and his kidneys were failing. We knew we wouldn't have long with him but he was rapidly going downhill this morning . He had a series of increasingly violent seizures this afternoon which were distressing for all concerned. Fortunately there's an emergency vet and the end was very peaceful.

The consolation is we were both here with him. It would have been terrible for him if he'd been on his own.

VenusRising Fri 26-Dec-14 02:44:12

Oh PhaedraIsMyName, I'm so sorry.
It's a hard decision isn't it sad I still miss my little cat, and remember how she used to climb the tree and attack the baubles, patting them far across the room.

No doubt you have happy memories of your gentle ginger boy and I'm sure you'll look back on today and know it was perfect timing for him to head off to happier hunting grounds, even though it's a stand out date for us, for different reasons.

Thanks to everyone in the litter tray for chat, fun and help over the years, and have a great break.

CatCushion Fri 26-Dec-14 06:59:20

Phaedra so sorry for your loss. I agree that it's important to look at it as being there for your pet and giving the love and best care possible in their time of need. It is a tough decision to make, even harder on Christmas day I'd imagine. I really admire your selflessness to do that. flowers
