You better watch out.
You better not growl.
You better not hiss,
spit, smack-paw or howl.
Santa Clause is comin' to town.
He's makin' a list
for cats who'll get nip.
Checking that none of 'em
gave their peeps lip.
Santa Claus is comin' to town.
HELLO MY FRIENDS! I was just singin' a little tune while wrappin' up some prezzies, 'cause if you haven't heard, Santa Claus is comin' to town. MOUSES!
I know, I know... I know what you're wonderin'. You're wonderin' why I, Seville the Cat, am wrappin' up prezzies. It's not like I'm Santa Claus or anythin'.
Or maybe it is. MOUSES!
Nah. I'm just joshin' you. Although Santa and I are on good speakin' terms. I've met him a couple of times now. Helped him out and everythin'.
But seriously folks, it's not just Santa who gives out the prezzies. We cats have to give prezzies, too. For instance, right now, I am currently tryin' to wrap up this prezzie for Peep #1. I can't tell you what it is, 'cause you know, she might read my blog and find out. I want it to be a surprise.
No Andy, I am NOT givin' the peep a surprise like that surprise you left for her outside the litter box, the day before yesterday. MOUSES!
FYI, I am not talkin' about the 'snow' Mason scattered all over the floor. No, Andy's surprise was far, far worse. Oh boy, was it ever worse. MOUSES!
But back to the wrappin' of this prezzie.
Excuse me. I'll be right back.
PEEEEPERRRRRRRSSSSSSSSS!!! Where did you say you put the good wrappin' paper, again?
No. No, I'm sure you told me. I'm sure you told me where the paper was. I'm sure you gave me the actual location. I've just forgotten what that location was, is all.
No. No, I'm positive you didn't tell me to keep my stinkin' paws away from your good wrappin' paper.
For starters, my paws don't stink. MOUSES!
But have you taken a whiff of Andy's paws lately? I don't know what that boy got into, but whatever it was, it was pretty stinky. MOUSES!
Anyway, where did you say the good wrappin' paper was, again?
Okay, okay. You don't have to tell me twice. And you CERTAINLY don't have to yell! Santa's comin', you know. He's not gonna be too happy if you're goin' around yellin' at his favourite marmalade pal. You know... ME.
Quit your hollerin' woman! I can take a hint. MOUSES!
Apparently, my friends, I, Seville the Cat, do not have access to the good wrappin' paper this year. MOUSES!
I had thought about puttin' the peep's prezzie in a box, instead of usin' wrappin' paper at all. But then I thought better of that. I mean, why waste a good box? MOUSES!
What to do; what to do...
GOT IT! I can wrap the peep's prezzie in some newspaper.
I know, I know... I know what you're thinkin'. You're thinkin', newspapers are for trainin' puppies who are bein' paper trained, although truth be told, why peeps train puppies to read newspapers while they're doin' their business is beyond me. I mean, seriously. Can puppies even read? MOUSES!
But think of it this way. At least the surprise inside this newspaper won't be stinky. You know, like the surprise Andy left for the peep outside the litter box, the other day. MOUSES!
Seville, those are some great Christmas pictures. Good idea to wrap the presents in newspaper. That will work just fine. Merry Christmas to all of you.ReplyDelete
Well with the good stuff in hidin', newspaper was all that was left. MOUSES!Delete
Well Seville, we are glad your prezzie won't stink in spite of being wrapped in newspaper ;)ReplyDelete
Besides the Peep #1 can read the paper again if she chooses.
Purrs Georgia,Julie and JJ
She can! I should have used the comic section. purrsDelete
MOL! I don't think puppies can read - I'm surprised ours can even manage to feed themselves.ReplyDelete
We are anxious to find out what the present is ...ReplyDelete
Every year I like to get Peep #1 somethin' kinda special but what I really SHOULD be gettin' her is some computer trainin' on account of her doin' that stuff for my blog. MOUSES!Delete
I know where the good paper is hidden but I can't get to it!ReplyDelete
Your peeps keep it locked up? MOUSES!Delete
Now you have us all curious about what you are giving your peep. Newspaper makes great wrapping paper, and you are being good to the environment. We do think you should get to use the good paper, though. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Angel Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista JoReplyDelete
Yeah, 'cause the good paper is all shiny and pretty and stuff. MOUSES!Delete
I think wrapping presents in newspaper is a great idea! Especially is the present is fish and chips!ReplyDelete
OH MY MOUSES! Fish 'n chips... I SHOULD have given her that!!! purrsDelete
You look so festive!ReplyDelete
Have a great Sunday...
Noodle and crew
Awww... THANKS! purrsDelete
Nice Christmas photos, Sivvers! And we think wrapping your peep's presents in newspaper is a brilliant idea. Recycling is a good thing, right?ReplyDelete
They say recyclin' is super good! Unless it's litter, of course. No one wants to reuse that. MOUSES!Delete
I wonder what you got the Peep, I hope you will tell us on Christmas.ReplyDelete
Certainly can't tell you before! It's a secret. purrsDelete
Hmm, if there's something interesting on the newspaper wrapping, that could double as a gift in itself, and coupled with the gift box, that would be two gifts! So clearly you have no need to put anything in the box as that would be just extravagant, and saves money for nip! purrs ErinReplyDelete
And savin' up nip money is ALWAYS on my mind, for sure. purrsDelete
Merry Christmas to Seville and your family. ☺ReplyDelete
And a Very Merry Christmas to you and yours, Beth. And a Happy New Year!!! PURRS.Delete
Pretty Christmas pictures ! Newspaper is paper, and when you wrap presents in it, it becomes wrapping paper, right ? Add a pretty ribbon, and voilà ! PurrsReplyDelete
Sounds about right to me! purrsDelete
You met Santa! You'll have to tell us more about that. Have fun wrappin' those prezzies!ReplyDelete
I've met him a couple of times now. He's a really great guy. Very jolly. purrsDelete
Well Seville you MADE MY DAY with your song there my friend.....but trust me - you won't score points using newspaper for wrapping paper. The only thing that newspaper should wrap is fresh fish. Now if you're giving tuna or mackerel or something like that as a gift - go for it!ReplyDelete
Love, Angel Sammy
NEXT year, I might just give the peep a paper wrapped fish. MOUSES!Delete
Hey Seville, that's so not fair mew not getting your paws on the primo packing/wrapping paper, seriously dude isn't there some committee of packing/wrapping paper peeps that mew can call and complain to? We cats deserve the right to the primo stuff at all times, mew know like primo nip, primo cream, primo beds and primo packing/wrapping paper... I'll sign your petition dude!!! Purrs Basil & Co xoxReplyDelete
Peeps are so selfish. They keep all the good stuff for themselves. MOUSES!Delete
Umm Seville, would you mind not mentioning stinking paws in case my mum sees it. You see, I had a mishap in the litter box yesterday when my tummy was a bit upset. Being a good boy, I carefully covered then went back to where my mum was wearing my favourite furry dressing gown. I must have covered too carefully and got poop between my toes because when I climbed on her shoulder for a snuggle her nose started twitching and then she saw it! The dressing gown went right in the wash but she could still smell it so she got in the shower while she left my dad washing my toesies for me.ReplyDelete
Stuff like that can happen, for sure. Believe me, I know. PURRS.Delete
You are far more generous than TKS and me Seville. We don't give diddly to our Mom and Dad. After all, we have been giving them our body heat ALL YEAR LONG...needed or not!!ReplyDelete
Well THAT'S a super duper gift in of itself! purrsDelete
