Dani and Sox are together again for the first time since Sox returned to his own home.
Those were the 'Do-Come-Over-and-Stay Days' when Dani and Sox were a duo or a do-over (meaning if you do that again, it's over!).
That year we featured them both on our Christmas card.
We'd like to give a nod to Dr. Suess for his endearing and enduring inspiration.
There are two Things in this picture.
Thing 1 is Dani and Thing 2 is Sox.
The inside of the card explains what is happening, as follows:
Thing 1 is wondering when Santa will come
Thing 2 wonders where he's coming from
But most of all, they wonder:
WHO IS THIS GUY
WHY IS HE STOCKING US?
They think Santa might be a PURRvert!
"Is da stocking dat makes me suspishus" remarks Dani.
"Stockings is used by stockers ta strangulls yoo" adds Sox anxiously.
"We best watch out fur dis fella an' pounce on him before he kin get us."
" Wif two of us an' one of him, we shud has de upPURR Paw."
So realizing that if I didn't step in there'd be a major KATfuffle, I sat the two kitties down to give it to them straight. I couldn't have two "armed" cats with deadly teeth and claws out there on Watch-out. Santa may not have kept up his defensive skills. He was declawed many moons ago. That was when he changed his name from CLAWS to CLAUS. (Betcha never heard that one before!)
I sat the two kitties down to explain how things really work: Santa comes efurry year on Christmas Eve and leaves presents in your stockings. If you had presents of mind you'd realize that Santa is a good and kind gentle man. I think you owe him an aPAWology. To show your appreciation you can bring him some cookies and milk. You better get ready.
Dani and Sox rush off ...
"I'm goin' on da InterNETS ta try an' CATCH summa doze Cookies dey got flyin' all over da place. Yoo kin take care of da milk." says Dani.
Sox, the lap cat, replies "We has no milk. I lapped it all up!"
So when Santa arrived they gave him a root beer.
"I'm ROOTin' fur ya, Santa. SORRY about da Milk." says Sox
"An' I'm SORRY 'bout da Cookies. I tried my best." says Dani.
Then they both thanked Santa and wished him
and to all a GOOD NIGHT!
