Twas the Night Before Christmas - Sensi and Tiger

Twas the night before Christmas and all through the house not a creature was stirring not even a mouse.  (of course if there had been a mouse I'm sure Sensi would not be so calm)

The stockings were hung on the cat house with care in hopes that St. Nicholas soon would be there.

The cats were nestled all snug in the beds, while visions of catnip toys danced in their heads.

Santa really was here!  I saw him just as he was leaving.  "He sprung to his sleigh, to his team gave a whistle, And away they all flew, like the down of a thistle: But I heard him exclaim, ere he drove out of sight-
Happy Christmas to all, and to all a good night".

I thought you all might want to see how the kitties prepared for Santa Claus.  They were all on their best behavior.....except Gypsy, who stole Santa's hat right off of the top of his head!

Despite the strong claw hold, she had on the hat, Santa was able to wrestle it away from her and continue his mission to deliver toys to all the the good little kitties.  Gypsy only thought Santa was wearing a cat toy on his head and she followed her instincts to attack.  Santa understood and I'm almost certain that he left something for her, too.
