It’s a day late, but here it is…..my rambling, perhaps not fully inclusive roll call of all the lovely and much-appreciated cat-related presents that came my way this Christmas.
from AUNTIE L
It was a misty moment indeed when Jake’s Madre presented me with this magical bag of things Auntie Lauri had set aside for me before her death. She was a real stunning lady, and these gifts show that for certain.
from AUNT GLENNIE
from JAKE’S FAMILY
Many of the gifts that are given when I come down to Maryland for a belated Christmas with the Wellers are fantastic objects, delicious treats, unusual finds, and their presentation is somewhat all at once…so, though I am not specifically sure of the giver of these gifts– Mormor? Madre? Padre? Lauri? Glennie? Iggo?– I am certain of the love behind them, and the appreciation of their receipt.
Grandma jewelry? Check.

from OLIVE but really I think it could have been LA MADRE DE JAKE
These might not represent them all, and if I catch any stragglers hiding on my bookshelves or in a kitchen cabinet, I will report on it promptly. This list doesn’t mention the print given to me by Ingrid– which will be published once it has been framed, or Olive’s cat treat haul from my family– which is on its way to being devoured, or Jake’s gift which deserves its own photo-essay post. I feel so inundated by all of the good will that has been thrown my way. And also, I love you.
