Dear Santa...

Dear Santa...

Well ya big ol' guy in the red and white suit, it's that time of year again.   The time of year when I write my annual letter to you, letting you know what I would really appreciate the most, in the whole wide world, for Christmas.

Now let's get down to business.  Christmas would not be Christmas if there wasn't some nip under the tree.  Nip mice, nip fish, nip biff bags....  it's all good.  As long as the nip is fresh and, if at all possible, grown organically.  That's me doin' my part for the planet, you know...  asking for the organic nip.  And let's face it, the nip is pretty easily grown - apparently for anyone other than my peep - so I don't see why it shouldn't be organic.

We need to talk 'bout the numbers.  I consulted my sister Mason on this one 'cause she has those extra toes just made for calculatin' these complex calculations and whatnot.  Mason did what she always does for such complex work.  She takes all the numbers, puts them in a big ol' bag - kind of like your sack, Santa - stirs them up a bit with her tail and then crunches them with her butt.  Works every time.  Mason has calculated that we will need forty-seven nip-filled toys.  That's three toys each for the twelve of us cats, another three for the cat who came back in case he comes a-visiting, a couple for nosey neighbour cat 'cause he's bound to visit and then six spares.  The spares are necessary 'cause I've got a couple of fur-sibs who like to slobber all over everyone else's nip toys to make them unattractive to the other cats and hog them all for themselves.  I am not one of the cats who does this.  I am most definitely not.  Neither is Mason.

Anywho...  that's the business of the nip taken care of.  Some treats would be much appreciated.  You know our favourties, by now, I am sure.  And some tins of the Fancy Feast along with those fancy-shmancy trays of Whiskas would be most welcome under the tree as well.  Please make sure some of them are of the turkey variety just in case those ol' veggie peeps of mine forget to get us our own turkey since they'll be havin' something veggie for themselves.  We talked 'bout this a couple of years back, remember?  Of course you do.  You're Santa!

The next item is a pretty big one but it's not for me.  Really, it's not.  Santa, there are so many kitties out there in this big ol' world without homes.  Some of them are in shelters while others are livin' out on the streets.  Christmas is not a time to be livin' on the streets.  It just isn't.  I know that if anyone can find a few homes that will fit in your sack, it's you.  So Santa, I'm putting fourteen homes on my wish list.  Including nosey neighbour cat and the cat who came back, there are fourteen of us so...  so I thought...  I thought we could ask for fourteen homes.  Not for us - of course - but rather, for fourteen kitties out there who don't yet have homes.  And if all of my pals out there in the blogosphere and on twitter and FB would ask you for homes for homeless kitties, too...  well then...  we could get all those kitties the families they so desperately need.  What do you think?  Can you handle this request?  Of course you can.  You're Santa!

And last but not least, I need one more star to complete the set for my Blogger of the Year award for 2012.  The peep is sayin' I can't just take the one sittin' on top of the Christmas tree.  Pretty nervy peep, huh?  See what I have to deal with all year?  Gosh you sure are lucky that you don't have to keep track of her naughtiness now that she's all ancient and whatnot.  What a list you'd have.  There isn't enough paper in the whole wide world to keep track of naughtiness like hers.  Anywho, if you could arrange for one more star for my award, it sure would be appreciated.

So that's all from me, Santa, for this year.  Hope you're havin' a good day up at the North Pole.  Remember to wear your extra-warm woollies under your suit on chilly days.  You've gotta stay healthy for your big night later this month, you know.

Love & purrs,
Nissy


If no one minds, I'm just gonna take a moment to send out a whole bunch of extra-special thank yous to Sherlock, Traveler & Ash at Feline Purr-spective, Nellie at the Cat from Hell, the whole gang at Katnip Lounge and Speedy at Speedy the Cheeky House Bunny for all sending me my second thru fifth stars.  They're all real stars, themselves, you know.  Super stars, I should think.  You should check out their blogs.  Enjoyment at its finest.

And I'm gonna pass the Blog of the Year award along to just a couple more pals 'cause they, too, are super-duper stars and also deserve this special starry award.  I'm givin' one to Simba over at Simba's Antics 'cause he gets into the antics, all right.  And Katie from GLOGIRLY 'cause her blog is such incredible fun as are her movies and now...  there's Waffles Too who is gonna add tonnes and tonnes of even more fun.  And then there are those cats at Trout Talkin' Tabbies who live in Trout Towne.  I simply love how they talk!  Must be a trouty thing, I think.  And last but not least, I'd like to send one to Speedy at Speedy the Cheeky House Bunny 'cause right now, his mom has been decoratin' up a storm and Speedy has been sharing pictures and it's all ever so beautiful. A real treat for the eyes.

Now remember everybody...   the Blog of the Year has rules and ya gotta follow them, okay?  You need to visit http://thethoughtpalette.co.uk/our-awards/blog-of-the-year-2012-award/  There, you'll find all sorts of interesting stuff including the rules for the award!  Also, that's where you'll pick up the appropriate badge for your blog.  You know...   the one with the correct number of stars.  Congratulations to all!

  24. Nerissa,

    SO very true, your post. *sigh* So many needs homes, it makes us very sad to think of it. And I KNOW that's right about Xmas not being a time to be out on the streets (or, in my case, living near a dumpster!) No kitty should have to endure that kind of horrible. I'm just SOOOOO thankful that I have a warm, loving home & that you do too - we ALL of us are so lucky!

    Happy holiday purrs to you & yours, my furriend!
    Selina

  26. I just want everyone to know that I'm having major issues with my reading list. Blogger 'says' I have no blogs in it and yet, there should be dozens upon dozens. So if I'm not visiting, it's not 'cause I don't want to. IT'S ALL BLOGGER'S FAULT!!!
