No Kitty For the Cao's

Well we found all kinds of cats, young ones old, skinny ones, fat ones, black cats white cats multi colored and striped cats. As I said before oodles of cats and crates of kittens. But it doesn't matter Paula in addition to being scared of mice is just as scared of cats. So no cat for the Cao family.

Quang told me that she is terrified of the neighbour's cat. The cat occasionally comes into their yard and when it does she hides in the house. I may have to have an intervention, take them or Paula at least down to the Humane society, get a couple of the kittens to turn on the charm. You can't be scared of a little powder puff curled up in your hand looking cute. Heck that's why little animals are cute, so you don't kill then when they get into trouble and so you adopt them at the shelter.

The Animal Christmas party was wall to wall people. You were lucky to even see an animal. The few dogs they had were all on hold or adopted, and it looked like a lot of the cats were on their way out too. What was a good deal was the sales room especially the everything for a buck table, they had dog bags for 1 dollar for 105 bags. I bought 5 dollars worth. It will take the girls more than a few days to fill all those. So it was a good deal all round.

Belle had to get new shoes this week. She walked through the bottoms of her's. So I went to Pet planet where I got Dixie's. Just in time too, they only had one pair of small ones left. So now Belle is the proud owner of a brand new set of HOT PINK boots. They are so bright I think they melt the snow just sitting there. Belle doesn't mind them though she is color blind. Although that pink is so bright she might even be able to see it. So far Dixie has not gotten jealous but I think she's been looking over at them.

And our Chinook finally arrived and is supposed to stay through the weekend. We are planning to see if we can take Ellen's Aunt Norma out to a buffet on Sunday morning and we will be putting up the tree on Saturday. It will be (in the words of the Christmas song) "beginning to look a lot like Christmas"! And if the Chinook kicks in t0 high gear it will look a lot like a Calgary Christmas, brown and dusty.

Just sitting here counting sleeps til Christmas...
