It’s me, Nota Supermom.
This year for Christmas please keep our new kitten Pinky from electrocuting herself when she tries to nurse on the Christmas tree lights.
Sure it’s cute when her cheeks light up, but this just can’t end well.
Also, Santa can you keep the kitten from knocking down the Christmas tree? We are running short of ornaments, and I really liked the one my late mother-in-law gave us. You can barely see the cracks after I glued it back together.
But, if something happens to the Santa candle she gave us, I won’t complain.
And can our forty-two-year-old cat Fergy have one last Christmas? She’s slowing down and keeps falling off my lap, but I’d hate to have to anything happen to her at Christmas. Besides, the backyard is too frozen to dig and the freezer is full.
Is it too much to ask that our Chihuahua, Chewie, lay off the accidents on the tree skirt? I promise not to complain if she goes back to peeing on the bath mat. At least until after New Year’s.
Can my kids stop telling me new things the “really, really want”? My shopping is done, so they are out of luck if they see a commercial for something they’ve always wanted but didn’t realize until they heard about it for the first time today.
And please remind my husband of the “nothing that plugs in” rule for presents. Unless it’s from Apple. And then it’s okay.

I think your requests are reasonable.
Please, let me know how it works out for you.
Is that from nursing on a red light?
She has a pink nose and tongue.
I didn’t name any of the cats: Figero/Fergy, Pinky, and Patches.
ha – your life sounds a lot like mine right now…especially the bit about the dog and the tree skirt. :-/
I will never own another chihuahua. They are so cute, but save it up on their walks for when they get back inside.

Love this letter! I think I need to write my own 🙂
Link me if you do! I’d love to read it. I love Christmas letters.

I would be totally cracking up if I saw the lights glowing through the cheeks! But yeah, that candle has got to go.
It haunts my dreams.

You crack me up. [smile]
That’s my job!
HAR! I love picturing that kitty with the light in it’s mouth. heh heh
It was so funny. I hated to make her stop.
Love the new look, too!
Thanks! I highly recommend Jessica at The Frilly Coconut. She was fun to work with and has great style.
Thanks for reminding me why I don’t have pets – except for the Beta fish and he doesn’t cause too much trouble. The kids on the other hand… they’re pretty good about not asking for a million gifts, but they think every minute their home I should be entertaining them with magical Christmas activities.
Stick to your guns. I have one pet per child. I’m way outnumbered. Too many things that poop!
