The first Christmas of any of my adopted out kitties, I always try to do a little something special for their first year away from me and Mum.
Last year, it was simple gift cards to Petco in a Christmas Card. This year, I had intended to make replicas of Siamese Kitties and place them around Christmas Bulbs with scribed writing announcing the year..
... alas, there's always next year.
The important thing for me, is letting the adoptive parents know that I am still thinking of them and the precious bundle of fur they took home with them. It has worked out well over the past years, and I've been able to watch my .. er um.. their furry children grow.
These were 2 of the gifts I bundled up on yesterday for their journey on Saturday. Lord knows, the postal service needs all the time it can get during this season!
