My cat went missing in November. A few weeks later, all of the toys and treats which I ordered for her arrived. I immediately opened them and gave them to my other cats…  because life is too short.

I might try and get them a cat enclosure in the back garden though… firstly so that, in the summer, my new pedigree kitten can enjoy the great outdoors without the risk of being stolen. Secondly so that, if my remaining pets make a fuss and howl during the night time (2 of my 3 cats are locked in at night, although Ginger and Smudge both have outdoor access during the day), I can put them outside in the enclosure without worrying about their being attacked by foxes (we think my missing cat was attacked by a fox). They can stay out there between 4am and 8am, provided it isn’t too cold… and then I can get some sleep!

Nope.  I have cats so they don’t really tear up their toys or have ones that need to be replaced.  I did look at the store when I was buying food, but cat toys are actually pretty boring, just all the same things they already have.  FMIL did send them a gift though so there is something under the tree for them!

Yup – Argo has a box tucked waaaaaaaaaaay at the back of the tree that neither of us can get to (BF did that on purpose so I couldn’t spoil him early) and I’m baking lots of treats for him and both our parents’ dogs.

I also got him a laser pointer that I broke into early because it’s just SO.MUCH.FUN to tease him!

Yep, our little angle will get an egg yolk for breakfast (her favorite) and several new miniature tennis balls. The tennis balls will be presented all at once by tossing them all in the air and letting them bounce, she get so stinking excited when we do that with new toys! She runs around smelling and trying each ball until she picks a favorite, which she will play with exclusively for the next few days.

Bru gets a stocking full of toys every year.  This year he’s getting the large  green themed one from Walmart.

I haven’t bought any presents for our dog, but I will be wrapping up a few of her treats so she can have fun opening some presents on Christmas morning. Her “grandparents,” however, have already bought her plenty of gifts – a brand new, deluxe bed (I swear, it’s nicer than our bed) and all the Pupperoni a dog could ask for.

We like to get a few treats/squeaky toys and wrap them. I get such a kick from watching them unwrap their presents. It is too funny!

Of course! We’re getting our pup some of her favorite chew toys – bully sticks, hoofs, and tracheas, which also happen to smell the worst of course. We also might spring and get her an antler, and there’s this dinosaur plush toy that she LOVED when on a doggy play date so if we can find that we might get one for her too. Plus she’ll get all the wrapping paper and boxes to joyfully tear apart.
