WWC #66, and more

This week’s words are NAUGHTY and NICE.

Sunday afternoon we attended a lovely open house/Christmas party. We were gone for over 2 hours. Before we left, my husband opened a box from my mother and placed the wrapped gifts under the tree. In the box there was also a nice Christmas treat for Cleopatra. SuperDad set the non-gift-wrapped (but still in plastic) catnip mouse in a dish on the counter.

In our absence, 0ur naughty cat got up on the counter (a major no-no!!), helped herself to her gift, and proceeded to remove it from the packaging. I wish I had it on film, to see how long it took her!

Teeth and claws are good for opening presents!  Packaging was found on the floor, but my floor does not make a pretty background for pictures!

By bedtime, the mouse was in danger of being disemboweled. I’m sure she had this accomplished by midnight:

Cleo had the munchies (Vitamin M for cats?)

That is some powerful-good catnip! I highly recommend it.


A few weeks ago, our Cub Scout Den visited the county’s safety center. They got to see how the 911 system works and then they got to sit in the nice deputy’s car.

This picture was taken the week after we finger-printed all of them!

May he never ride in the back seat!

May he never be so naughty that he rides in the back seat!

We’ll be taking the next 2 weeks off from this photo meme, but it’ll be back on January 6th. Merry Christmas!

  1. LOL on the mangled mouse!~ Reminds me of the year Andy (our Maltese) got into the Hersheys Kisses on Christmas Eve. I came home to a roomful of wrappers (Lord knows how he did that feat) and an 8 pound dog on a sugar high. Needless to say, we finally got to bed at 4 a.m. Oh, and yes, the emergency dog hospitals work on Christmas Eve, but they said he’d be fine … it’s the cooking chocolate that’s bad for bad dogs. ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. I know how it is, OUR cats found the secret catnip mouse hiding spot too!
    Maybe your son will be a police officer himself one day?
    Will your husband have some time off work this week or next?

  3. Great use of the words! I was totally expecting a “high” shot of the kitty though. Maybe he was hiding. I hear catnip makes cats paranoid. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  4. Love the naughty cat story! You can’t blame him though, it’s like leaving crack for an addict. Hee hee!

    The line up at the police car is too cute.

    Good job all around.

  5. And you expected the cat to leave it alone? lol good story, love the photo of the dessicated mouse too! Interesting texture on the bowl, I like how it shines. And boys and police cars, hopefully none of them will ever be in the back seat!

  6. So did the cat get the munchies after getting into the catnip? ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Great job on the words! Have a great Christmas!

  7. Who can be naughtier than a cat?? They’re the masters. Well done!! Hope you and yours have a Merry Christmas!! -AJ

  8. I love the bowl–he needs to start talking to Gary about his future.

  9. O! I luvz kat nippie! Iff I wuz Cleopatra kitty kat den I opens da present 2! OK?

  10. When I was a kid we had a catnip junky cat. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Excellent photos as usual. I hope that they never get to ride in the back either!

  11. My cats would have done the exact same thing. I have to hide their catnip in an airtight container lest they always be high. Great uses of the words.. well done. ๐Ÿ™‚
