Christmas is just around the corner

First off, we are very excited cuz we just put up our Christmas Header.... It's a wonderful thing for sure. Ann does such beautiful work. Anyhooooooooo..... we are also very excited cuz we know that new toys are on the horizon and maybe a treat or two.

We're too cute to get in trouble, right?

We just read on Molly's blog about her letter to Santa Paws and we thought we ought to get ahead of a little incident that happened the other night.

So, Bugsy being an impartial third party was elected to write to Santa Paws for both of us, because he seems better at maintaining the right balance of humility and joy of the season to please the old guy. 

Bugsy started off by explaining that we don't have a chimney and that we live on the third floor, so if'n his knees are bothering him when he comes to make the delivery, he can use the elevator.... Then Bugsy gently eased into telling Santa about my misadventure the other night.

I (Knuckles) am writing this blog post about the incident because there's a story going around that I was a bad boy the other night and I want to make doubly sure that Santa knows that it was a fluke and will never happen again. Certainly, my blog post on top of the letter from Bugsy will convince him that we are sincere.

So, anyway. here's what happened.  You see, HH heard a noise in the middle of the night.... a rustle-of -plastic noise.  So she got up and tiptoed toward the kitchen. When she reached the doorway, she found Bugsy playing lookout. When he saw HH he got his OH - OH eyes on, but he forgot to warn me that she was rounding the corner.

So, long story short ... the scene in the kitchen goes like this.  I'm a smart boy, so it was no trouble for me to get the lid off the garbage can. I just never thought to try before. Well, when HH entered, I was on the kitchen floor with the handle of the Tall Kitchen Garbage Bag in my mouth, and I was pulling with all my might to pull the garbage bag out of the garbage can. 

I know it wasn't such a smart thing to do, but I was just looking for a little snack. I guess I should thank my lucky stars she caught me when she did. Now that I think about it, I would not have fared as well if I had succeeded in my mission and had strewn garbage throughout the room...

So, Bugsy is writing Santa Paws to explain that no harm was done, just in case Santa should catch wind of my most recent activities.  And, I'm confessing in this post just to make sure Santa knows that I mean it when I say that I didn't mean any harm and that there is no reason for any coal in my stocking this year.


That's the truth as I know it.  Have a nice day........ Knuckles

It really is important to keep sure Santa doesn't have any wrong info when it gets this close to Christmas!

We are sure that Santa will forgive you as really you are a good kitty. I will make sure that Santa sends you lots of nice things as you know I can be very firm when I need to be. Santa won't mess with me this year. Love your new header. Have a terrific Thursday. SQUIRRELS & TREATS!
Best wishes Molly

I know Santa VERY well and will call him immediately and tell him the story....he will put you back on the nice list....I just know it! LOVE the new header!

Oh darling, don't you worry even a little bit. Santa knows you are a good boy and that you just felt a little hungry, that's all. Besides, you tried to handle that without disturbing your mom. What's not to like?

Casey said...

Hey, you were just trying to help sort for recycleables! I do that too, and for some reason, Momma gets all annoyed. I'm sure Santa Paws understands.

Beautiful header. Ann does a great job. We think you saw a mouse climb into the trash can and was just trying to get the critter so it would not scare HH!

Marilia said...

So pretty header!

Sparkle said...

Binga misbehaves all year, and I've noticed that she still gets Christmas gifts anyway. Hmmmm...

Cathy Keisha said...

Hmmm you were just trying to bring Smorgasbord night indoors since you're an indoor kitty. Nothing wrong with that.

Brian said...

I think that was really nice that you were going to take out the garbage so she wouldn't have to do it!

Marg said...

Knuckles, we would have tried the same thing, so we can't blame you. You were just looking for a little snack. Nothing wrong with that. We just know that Santa will still come to see you, bad knees an all. Take care.

What an awesome header, second blog in a row where we have seen more of Ann's magic. AND that is one very special pic of the two of you. We are sure Santa will understand the whole incident, Knuckles - you and Bugsy would never be naughty:)

We're sure Santa Paws will overlook that one transgression, Knuckles!

We love your header!

ohhh Miss Ann did my holiday header too...I really like yours lots!

And Knuckles, I am sure Santa Paws will understand. You live indoors, like me, and well, I bet HH forgot to give you that special snack before she went to bed and then Bugsy was a little peckish too, so you wanted to help him out and also get a teeny bite for yourself so you did what any indoor kitty would do you ....ummmmm...ok...that's all the story I have come up with yet...back to iPad notes...paw pats, Savannah

Well, with winter coming and cold and stuff, it's normal to feel a little hungry in the middle of the night so I guess Santa will understand!
