Sweetie Pie ran outside on Christmas Eve! She’s never supposed to go outside, but she just blasted right out. The worst thing was, the reason the door was open was …. But I’ll tell it right.
Sweetie Pie’s mom, my Granny, went to the little family Christmas party at my sister #2 Daughter’s (pictures in a minute). Then she came home and took some medicine. Then she got ready to go to Candlelight Service with my mom.
On the way to get into the car, she fell onto her tailbone. OUCH! It shook her up so much, she decided to stay home. So Mom and Mr. Mom were taking Granny back into her house, and THAT’S when Sweetie Pie rocketed out into the night. Right when her mom needed her the most!
Mom had promised to do something at the service, so she went on while Mr. Mom sat with Granny. Granny left her back door open, letting the cold air in and just asking for mice and possums to come make themselves at home, and Sweetie Pie came back in after a while.
She says she was so excited to get out, she didn’t notice her mom was upset. She says she wanted to see if Santa Paws was there yet.
Mom says self-control and attention to others are virtues we all need to practice. So, while she and Granny forgive Sweetie Pie and love her just as much as ever, Mom let me do Caturday this week.
Here are the pictures Mom took for me to share.
The black cat is Albert, but we don’t know the white cat’s name. He didn’t want to play with Albert, anyway.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from all the cats in the family. (Including Sweetie Pie!)
