I don’t know this for a fact, but I am pretty certain that while most families will be going out to get a gift for under the tree for their pooch, less will be thinking the same for their cats. But this year we have a dog and it seems churlish not to put something under the tree for our feline friends too.
So, Coco and Sadie, over to you. What is on your wish list this Christmas?
1. Cat nip toy
Dear Santa, our top choice for under the tree is a cat nip toy. It drives us crazy! (but in a good way!) And one each if you don’t mind, none of that sharing malarky – The Dog is getting her own gifts and so should we!
2. New scratch post
A new scratch post would be puuuurrrrrrfect! There is a new thing in our house we are calling ‘The Dog’ and she needs keeping in her place. So our beautiful claws need to be sharp and on point!
3. Nerf bullets
If we are honest, we are not 100% sure what these are, but we just know that they are our favourite toy. We bat them round the kitchen, run around with them in our mouth and pretend we have caught something and then chew them to pieces! We used to have loads, but since the youngest human in our house has grown out of them, they are in scarce supply.
4. Roast chicken
Dear Santa, we know that our humans are having roast chicken for Christmas lunch and we want some too! We know that The Dog will get scraps under the table. We would prefer ours served in our proper eating bowls and no bones s’il vous plaît!
5. Open fire
So after we have stuffed ourselves on roast chicken, all we will want to do is curl up in front of an open fire. Bliss!
We have been very good this year and have only hissed at The Dog when she chases us around the house, so we have our paws crossed for a bountiful Christmas!
