Boxing Day Update and Belated Happy Christmas!

Well, here I am at Devon Grandma's house. Sorry I couldn't post yesterday to wish my friends a Merry Christmas, but hope you all had a good one. My humans and I drove from London to Devon on Wednesday. It was a slower journey than usual because of the weather and my humans got very tense because of the snow and the freezing fog and later the torrential rain - lots of cars were having accidents but my dad drove very carefully and we got to Devon Grandma's house safely in the end. I fell asleep in the Evil Cat Carrier and slept nearly all the way and my humans said I was extremely good and quiet.

I remembered Devon Grandma's house and I am happy to say that she still has all the cosy sofas and that there is still a very warm and comfy napping spot behind the red sofa next to the hot radiator! I have been spending a lot of time there.

On Christmas morning I checked my stocking and I found some tins of tuna and some other luxury foods for treats and a packet of Greenies sent from Mericky just for me! Edible presents are my favourite. Then my mum and dad went off to Cornwall to have Christmas dinner with Cornish Grandma and Cornish Auntie (who live about 2 hours' drive away). Devon Grandma went next door and had Christmas dinner with 12 other people and I looked after Devon Grandma's house for her. My humans stayed in Cornwall for the night so I was in charge of looking after Devon Grandma. She remembered to feed me at the right times so that was OK. This morning (Boxing Day) I woke up and I remembered my humans had gone to Cornwall so I found my way into Devon Grandma's bedroom and I jumped on her pillow and started licking her hair just like I do to my humans and I went "Meow, meow, breakfast please!" Devon Grandma got a bit of a fright because she is 80 and apparently she isn't used to large floofy cats on her head in the morning, but when she had calmed down she served my breakfast, so that was good! Then at lunchtime she was eating a turkey sandwich and I sat in front of her chair and looked really, really pleading and I got some TURKEY!!! After that my stomach was happy and full of turkey, so I had a nap until tea-time, when my humans arrived back from Cornwall and there was much hair-licking and happiness.

We are staying here until Wednesday when we go back to London so I will have lots more chances to try out the napping spots at Devon Grandma's house. My mum has taken some lovely Christmas photos of me but we can't upload them until we get back home. Hope everyone else is having as much Christmas fun as me!

We are glad you are having a good time with Devon Grandma and got turkey. We are also very glad that your Beans had a safe journey in those terrible conditions. We didn't have the torrential rain, but mum was very happy this morning when she saw most of the ice has gone. We look forward to seeing your photos.
Merry Christmas Eric, sounds like you are having a good visit with Devon Grandma, and good on her to give you some turkey. I got ham.
Sounds like you're having a great holiday, Eric! Grandma Devon sounds very nice especially since she gave you turkey!
Mmmmm greenies!!!
Hi Eric. So glad to hear that you and your family made it safely from London to Devon. We've had similar icky weather here. It's great that you were able to talk Devon Grandma into giving you turkey for lunch! We think you and Fuzzy must be related in some way because he's a big floofy cat too and likes to sit on Meowmy's pillow and purr in her ear and knead her hair.
Turkey..Yum..Glad you had such a nice Christmas.
It sounds like you had a marvelous holiday! I am glad that your Devon Grandma was able to understand that you needed breakfast while you were licking her hair.
Eric your visit with your Grandma sounds wonderful. Luckily you didn't scare her to death before breakfast! Merry Christmas and safe travels home.
Sounds like everything is just about purrfect there, Eric.
Sounds like a good time at Grandma's...especially with turkey!
It sounds like you are having a wonderful time at Grandma's house.
We're glad your grandma survived the fright. It would be quite a scare to have something licking your hair when you don't have a hair-licker of your own.

Guess you all had a happy Christmas!
Sounds like all yoiur needs are being looked after and you are getting spolied too. That sounds good to me. Hey you were very good in your evil cat carrier, I hate mine and meow realy loudly all the time. Looking forward to seeing your photo's. Love GJ xx
Everyone should know the pleasure of waking up to a cat on one's head.

Sounds like you had a lovely Christmas!

Oh man, you had turkey?! We had to stay home when our humans went visiting at Christmas and WE didn't get turkey.
