Molly & Twix's 'Christ-mouse' Surprise

Santa Claws paid an early visit to our house this year, thanks to the Kitty & Canine Blogger Gift Exchange, which paired our one-year-old fur children Molly and Twix with Cashew and Macadamia, whose mom Erin writes the fun and fabulous Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Silliness blog.

From feather wands to Party Mix treats, a laser pointer, crawl cube, fish-themed throw toys, letter from Santa and more, the girls were in Christ-mouse heaven  from the moment the package arrived, since even before any toys were actually pulled out, they had already laid eyes on a few of their all-time favorite things – newspaper clippings, bags, and of course, the box itself!

Here, a few fun photos taken during the play frenzy, which was the perfect addition to a weekend already filled with other holiday activities, including sending cards, shopping and enjoying a few sips of spiced holiday ale. 











A huge thanks to Erin, Cashew and Macadamia for making our kitties purr with happiness, and also to exchange organizers Hannah and Kelly! Once we know that Cash and Mac have received their treats, I'll also be sure to share the Christmas-themed goodies we sent their way. 

How are you getting into the holiday spirit so far, and how do you usually celebrate with your pets?

  10. Bevo, our Boston Terrier, has a present still in it's box. He usually gets an over-sized rawhide bone that usually lasts for the entire year. Last year's bone is not even half-way done so I think we'll have to skip that tradition this year. Of course he'll get toys and probably some special to eat.

  17. This is way too friggin' adorable. I love animals! I so miss having a pet. :( Mr. A and I want to save all of the homeless animals in the world, so you can count on us having tons of fur babies in the future.
