One of Ellen's wonderful decorations!
BOY did our human, Ms. Carol get lucky!  She got an invite to Ms. Ellen Pilch's of to spend Christmas Day!  Okay, true, she should have stayed with us.  But we let her go this one time advising she MUST be home by dark! Today we will allow her to share with you the wonderful cats she said she met at Ms. Ellen's...on the condition WE get to show off our gifts next time!

So the first thing she saw was an identifying sign, so that she KNEW she was in the right place!

Note: For those wanting to see ALL the photos from Ms Ellen's house, click on the 4 minutes'll be almost as fast as seeing the pictures and will give you the full "flavor" of the day!  Meowwwrowwww!  CHRISTMAS AT ELLEN PILCH'S HOUS

Then, before and after a scrumptious dinner, she met "the katz" (well, most of them), and got to watch them (and the humans) open their presents! 

(Below: Phoebe, Joanie and Stinky wait for the fun to begin!

 Ellen assists Joanie in opening her present!

 Just what I wanted!

 Millie watches the action from a safe distance

 Ellen reassures Jinx he is "next!"

Sammy doesn't wait to be "reassured" - he plunges right in!

Settle down everyone!  (David, Ellen's hubby, tries to bring order to the event)

Ka-Two, meanwhile, takes a well-deserved subath!

A gift pack for the kitties from Carol awaits..

SAMMY: I must know what is in it IMMEDIATELY!

Stinky's new cowboy hat fits Purrrrfectly!

Sammy:  Is there CATNIP is this package?

Phoebe is up for some major exercise...on her new reindeer blanket!
(wonder where that came from?)

Well, Carol thought it was a wonderful afternoon, packed with cats, goodies, Ellen's great family and delicious food.  It was a wonderful experience to meet all those cats she'd been reading about. They are even sweeter than they look in Ellen's blog. So are Ellen's family!  Thanks Ellen for a great afternoon!  We would like to have our human back now, though.
