Things to do with a Santa hat

This is Santa. I bought him years ago, when Daughter 1 was a baby.

He may well be a close relative of Humpty Dumpty.

His hat is a bit small for Daughter 2.

It's dangerous to lie around our house when there's a Santa hat on the loose.

Yes, I know it's taking advantage of Sirius's good nature, but the tempation's too strong.

He poses politely for another photo.

Ooops - where did it go?

Daughter 1 comes to admire.

Sirius decides it's time to give us a hard stare. Cats, he remarks firmly, don't really wear hats.


  1. You certainly are blessed with patient pets and playful daughters!


  2. He is a lovely puddy tat.

    You could use that photo as your next year's Christmas card!

  3. It suits him very well! Especially with the dashing little white tuft on the side. Do you think he'd submit to wearing antlers?

  4. What a lovely happy post - so enjoyed your pictures. Wishing you and your family a wonderful happy Christmas and all the best for 2008. I get to have my first Scottish Hogmanay for 17 years this year. Love Z xx

  5. My goodness, so many good-looking people (and animals!) at your house!

  6. Goodness, is anyone game to close their eyes at your house when someone's got a camera out?

    Love the photos!

  7. Brilliant photos. Do we take it Cassie, being the more intuitive of the two, smelt what was in the wind and made herself scarce? Is she just out shot, smirking at Sirius from a safe distance?

  8. Oooh look at those golden eyes!! Topsy gets that look on her face when she has had enough of me messing around with her!
    Just in case I don't visit you again in the next five days, best wishes to the 'Life' family for a very Happy Christmas!

  9. No of course they don't... humans are so foolish

  10. (Does that shirt really make me look like that?)

  11. Loved the photos of the cat (and Santa hat)

    Hope you and your famliy have a wonderful Christmas.

  12. What a cute little Santa Cat he makes!

  13. Loved all your pictures.
    A nice smile for the day!

  14. Now i think the hat looks perfect. Purrrfect. Great photos of your girls too! I am free at last. You will know just how delighted I am!
