Almost Christmas Eve Eve

People! Are you watching that Christmas ticker up there??? In less than an hour it will be Christmas Eve Eve. If today were tomorrow, tomorrow would be Christmas Eve! I am so excited, I can hardly stand it!

Buster Cat Nixon, our little mountain goat, got so excited about Christmas he nibbled on a pickle this afternoon. This pickle to be more specific...ugh! He tried to eat the Christmas Pickle! I came home to find it broken on the carpet. I gathered all the pieces, and started piecing them together. I wasn't trying to save the ornament; I was just so desperately hoping that all the pieces were there. They were not. There was definitely some missing pickle. I googled "cat ate glass." It still didn't comfort me. I called the vet. They said to feed him so that the food would bind to any glass and hopefully pass safely. So - for breaking and eating an ornament, this cat got about 20 treats, and an entire container of the fancy cat food.

(Hardly seems like punishment...)

I love him so much, and I am so excited about Christmas, that I am not even going to complain about having to examine the litter box... Seriously, I'm not.


  1. The things we do for the love of animals! It makes Jake's shenanigans seem that much more tolerable, so thanks : ) His habit of drinking out of our glasses when we're not paying attention is still going strong, but now he also licks our plates and gets his nose in our food! It's not like I don't feed him and he's never been interested in table food before. He's just a mess. Jake has a Christmas bow, but no costumes or clothes. That's as far as we'll go : )

  2. Buster Cat! I bet one of the mice dared him to do it. What coudl he do? He had no choice. I bet they ganged up and egged him on.

    He will be fine. My dogs once ate an entire rotissere chicken and 4 ears of corn. Cole once ate the net bag a small turkey came in. They are tough!

    At least he tried to eat an ornament that looks like food. I consider this a sign of extrme intelligence. He knew not to eat Santa!
