PERCY: Hey, what's this strange looking tree doing in my home? I didn't give permission for it to move in.
RUSTY: It's not a tree, Percy, and it didn't d need your permission. Jan brought it in and you know how she thinks she owns this place!
MERCI: Jan said it's a new scratching post. It's supposed to replace two similar ones you cats destroyed a few months ago.
MARCUS: I'm relived Jan specified you cats. I would hate to take the blame for destroying something I never even touched, except by accident.
BUDDY:: A very kind blogger gifted us with some money in Jan's Paypal account and Jan said this is what we need, so this is what we will get. Canines don't use a scratching post, so who are the "we" who need it?
CYNDI: Next Percy checked out the sweat jacket hanging on the doorknob. Jan spends months dressing in layers - even in the house - because she is always cold, so we won a good sweatshirt for her in Savannah's Fix Our Ferals Sweatshirt Giveaway. That should help keep her warm.
MICAH: We hope Savannah's mom has been waited on hand and paw as she recuperates from a total knee replacement earlier this month. It must have been tough for her to have patience during the holiday season when humans want to run from store to store to spend money on gifts. Unless she was a cyber shopper.
SAM: We're a bit late in posting on this too, but in October we won a Whiskerslist desk calendar for Jan. With Jan's history, we have little -- okay, no faith that Jan will remember to read important dates on any calendar, not even this one.
CAMERON: But we will sure enjoy reading the daily kitty classifieds on it. We won the calendar from Summer at Sparkle's blog.
BUDDY: Hey, it just occurred to me we've been gypped! The cats received a big box of goodies. They have a new scratching post. What did we dogs get for Christmas?
PERCY: Uh .... oh, you all had a Christmas present. Back in October, Jan bought you each a new bed. It was already too cold to save them for presents, so you had Christmas early.
SAM: I don't remember Jan saying anything about them being Christmas presents, just that we had better take good care of them. We're going to have to have a talk with Jan.
