We got to have a fun Christmas sleepover at Gramma and cousin Bowie’s house! I have never spent the night at Gramma’s house before, but Bailie has. It was so exciting, I couldn’t wait to leave for Gramma’s on Christmas Eve day! Even kitty cousin Bowie was thrilled to spend two days with his GBGV cousins. You can feel the love from this photo, right?
On Christmas Eve I got to open my present from my friend Sparkle. It was sent to me and Bailie, but Mom said it was more for me. She sent me a nice big root chew. Mom had me open it at Gramma’s so I could keep it there to chew on when I visit. I already have root chews at home. Sparkle sent along a super cool card too! Thank you so much, Sparkle!
The guestroom was our place to sleep. For me, the bed seemed pretty small since we are used to a king size bed at home, but Mom said it would be nice and cozy for the three of us. Who knows why, but I decided to get up early on Christmas morning, 3:25 am early. Mom was not amused, and said I needed to get back in bed and sleep some more. A Christmas sleepover must mean more sleeping?
Christmas morning we had a really long, but fun walk before breakfast. After breakfast, we got to open the last door on our Advent calendars. Normally they have twenty four days, but the ones for dogs have twenty five. Bailie and I were excited to see what we got because the door for day twenty five was about four times as big as the other doors. Turns out it was a big salmon and sweet potato bone treat! It was super tasty. We both loved the treats in our calendars and are happy to know Trader Joes sells the same flavor treats in their stores.
During most of our stay, cousin Bowie was pretty chill. He stayed within sight of us, but also far enough away to feel safe. He is a nice cat, but for some reason he is more like our kitty sis Sophie when it comes to loving dogs. We can never understand how humans or other animals sometimes don’t like us very much, since we are such nice, fun girls.
Bailie did some naughty stuff at Gramma’s house. When Mom and Gramma went to church, Bailie emptied both of Bowie’s cat food bowls. Gramma realized what happened when they returned, and Bowie was meowing around for food. Did a little trouble with Gramma stop Bailie? Of course not! She emptied two more bowls during our stay.
Finally, Mom put the bowl up high on Bowie’s scratcher tower so Bailie could not quite reach it. Bailie kept trying while Mom watched, but she was not able to have any success. It’s not like we were starving! We had our regular meals, an egg for breakfast, extra cookies from Gramma, marrow bones, and stuffed Kongs, but Bailie wanted the cat food.
As always, our favorite thing to do at Gramma’s is to watch the live squirrel TV. Christmas was no different. We spent a lot of time at the various windows watching those pesty creatures race around. It is quite exhilarating!
By the end of Christmas day we were completely worn out. Even Gramma was ready to crash. Only Mom was left standing with her camera as usual! What a fun Christmas sleepover. I hope we can do it again before next Christmas!
