What did Santa bring your pet for Christmas?

What has your pet got for Christmas?
Our cat George has a pot of chicken livers which he loves raw. The vet said too much liver is bad for cats but the poor chap is over 18 years old, almost blind and deaf, the only bits that seem to work are his nose, his tummy and his purr so a little of what he fancies won’t do him much harm!

Apart from the rug - that wasn't intended for the cats, mine got the heating on all day, as I wasn't at work :-D

George (who after the liver, is looking with distain at the sachet of cat food we have offered him) sends his best wishes to you all :-D

Gwyneth our cat got 3 toys (the sticks with feathers on - they look like mimi feather dusters) they don't last long, not with a cat and dog chasing them, lol and some treats, though the amazon box was more interesting!

Poppy our dog got two soft toys, one with a squeak, one which has a hole in it already, and some of the stuffing missing. amazes me how a small dog can wreck a toy so quickly, ah well out with the needle and thread.

Enjoy the rest of your Cheistmas :-D

My cat got my Hubby's chair (which is in his den, and she usually has to fight him for it!) totally undisturbed, plus a packet of Dreamies.
I always buy toys and treats for my daughter's dog, and for the dog next door. I used to take him for long walks, but he's too old now, bless him

Whoops!! Just found a present I bought Betty cat.
A packet of hair ties :-D

Odd, you may say, but she gets great pleasure out of tossing them into the air, and stalking them.
She also takes them into the garden & loses them :-P

The other 2 cats aren't interested.

My 2 had their advent calenders (bought by a friend), they also from the same friend had turkey and chicken dinners. From me they had new waterproof coats and new harnesses plus a pack of treats. I will also soon buy them new ropes but they love the old ones.

Did I wrap them up ..not this year.
