Who knows why I stopped by Pet Smart last Christmas Eve, noticed an openly loving, white cat with big blue eyes, and adopted him. I immediately, named him Christmas; since, Eve would not have been gender appropriate. Soon, he began to work his holiday magic and transform non-cat persons into cat lovers.
Although Christmas is a mouser, he is very social and gentle with people. He made friends with the children next door and their Jack Russell terrier. They all play chase; and, Christmas has a turn as IT, chasing after the kids and the dog. He made friends with the military retiree to the east of us. He goes in and watches TV with him and usually has a snack.
After a number of ear infections, Christmas had surgery to clear the problem. It took about three months for his hair to grow back.
All in all, Christmas has been good for us; and, I think we have been good for him, as well.
