Penny’s Tips Volume 117

Hi everyone! Mom said if I wore this hat that Santa may overlook my chasing Trouble and peeing on the mat.  Mom has been complaining that us kitties have too many toys, tunnels and trees, She wants to put some away to make room for the Christmas tree. I suggested they move the couch to the basement instead, but she didn’t like that idea.

Mom made a basket of goodies to leave out for delivery people.  She does that every year, but I helped this time.

All you need is a basket, bottles of water and some snacks. Mom usually puts a note on a chalkboard, but this year she found some free printables and had Dad laminate it. Here are links to 2 of them:

  1. You look so cute in your Santa Hat. I have an in with Santa paws so I’ll put in a good word for you.
    What a nice treat for USPS, FedEx and Postal Service

  2. What a lovely idea! I think mama is going to bake sme cookies or something. But maybe they want something packaged for safety. Still, they always see the receiver here in a mask and HOME!

  3. Penny, this is such a great idea! And since I ordered so much on Black Friday (cat food, Squeezeups (A LOT of these), health and beauty products for the next year, Christmas presents …), I’m pretty sure I owe our delivery people stuff. My boyfriend is already complaining about “more packages” – but we’re only about 1/4th there. I’m sure I’ll be sorry when I get my credit card bill – but I won’t have to buy much for the first six months of the year or more!

  4. What a wonderful way to show some love to delivery people!

    Santa understands everything, so he knows what was bothering you when you peed on the mat and chased Trouble. He doesn’t approve, but he understands that you’re a cat and can’t help behaving like a cat. It will be okay.

    As for putting away things for the Christmas tree, when you get those things back after the holidays it will be like welcoming back old friends, everything old is fresh and new again!

  5. OUTSTANDING idea Penny…and I will never believe the gossip that you peed on a mat! NO way.

  6. Penny that is a wonderful idea about the basket of goodies. It is very rare for us to get a delivery to our door.
    Every so often we receive a FED EX but we are at the end of his route which is usually after dark.

  7. That is such a kind and thoughtful thing to do. Mom is going to do that too. Perfect day for this tip with it being Giving Tuesday.

  8. What a lovely gesture! Although we live in a big city, we are on a very quiet cul de sac, so it would probably be safe for us to do this too.

  9. Thank you for this reminder of your kind gesture. Bless you and yours, my dears. And I don’t think the hat is required to grant forgiveness. ~hugs~ Oh, and maybe the Christmas tree could go in the basement. lol Not that it doesn’t deserve top billing, but so do kitty comforts. 😀
