So when she sits around the house she really sits around the house!

It's amazing how they hone in on those things. Just put a top or a pair of jeans down on the bed for a minute.....

Yes, that's like a magnet to them. Even more so if it's a fabric/color that will really show cat hair!

Heheh. Stripes is certainly handsome and quite content in that photo. Of course, there are ancient and immutable laws in Catdom -- if you like dark clothing, you will have a light coloured cat. The inverse is also true. And of course, the moment that anything new/freshly laundred/dry clean only lands on a chair or bed or bench, they must claim it as theirs.

Going to open the goodies now.

A few minutes later: WOW! I love the tea calendar and booklet guide -- how very perfect! And the holiday ornament with the Aussie flag. I love stuff like this. Thank you very much, Pat.

I'm glad you liked it. I saw the Obama button while on a business trip to DC right after the election so I thought you might like a little piece of American history. That hedgehog is a little freaky, isn't he?
