A year in the life of our Miss Riley

Throwback Thursday: Penny

on December 18, 2014

Penny was my mother-in-law’s cat, who came to live with us when my in-laws moved to Florida (and went back to them when they moved back a few years later). Penny wasn’t a Christmas tree climber, thank goodness, but the first Christmas we had her, I heard an odd rustling from under the tree…

She had found the catnip toy I had gotten her, and was doing her best to unwrap it, hidden by all the other presents under the tree. To keep her out from under there, I put the package in the picture window. She spent the rest of the days up to Christmas there. She didn’t chew or claw off all the paper; she just licked her way through a crucial point in the paper and was content. As I recall, it was tough to get it away from her to unwrap completely on Christmas…and that face backs up my memory!
