A few days ago, a very important package arrived in the mail:
The Armarkat Classic Cat Tree model #b6802.
Even though Dave and I have been devoted cat-parents for the past five years, we have never really given our “children” a substantial present. However, since we have some big milestones coming up this year (Brody is turning 10 years old and Baby Girl entered our lives four years ago this month) we decided to surprise them with something really special.
The beauty of buying a present for a cat is that the packaging is a gift within itself: plastic straps, tape, packing peanuts, even the box itself become exciting toys.
It was so much fun watching my kitties enjoy their new things, and I had to wonder if this is what Christmas day feels like.
You know…to all those human-parents out there.
