Mittens came with me to my parents house for Christmas. They already have a cat, Caleb, and a dog, Webster. Luckily my parents have a large house, because each of these animals are very particular about their territory.
Webster is everywhere all the time. He’s curious about the cats and enjoys giving them a good chase. The way he whips his stuffed animal toys around makes me want to keep him away from Mittens though.
Caleb is pretty secretive about his life. He spends his day roaming the neighbourhood and comes in at night to sleep in Dad’s office. That is until he sneaks up to my room where Mittens and I are quietly sleeping. Christmas morning I was woken up to a cat fight. A cat fight that took place right on top of me.
An entertaining activity that usually happens during any visit to my parents is the animal photography session. It’s usually just Mom and me. We kill ourselves laughing while taking pictures of a pissed off cat and a show off dog. Caleb seems to escape being put through this. Below are the best of the Christmas photo session.
Webster got a new leather jacket for Christmas. He’s quite proud showing it off. Note how his chest hair pokes out the top of the jacket. True biker fashion.
The beauty of Mittens’ photos are in how annoyed she looks. She obviously believes that she’s of a higher intelligence than the photographer (me) or the photographer’s assistant (Mom). It’s as though our actions confirm her theory of us being complete imbeciles.
