Gift Wrapping


It’s a wrap! Asking cats to explore new frontiers and learn how to do tasks by themselves requires bravery, and patience, not only from the cats but from humans, too. But it can be tough to know when to let them untether and try things on their own.

Today it’s my lovely sister’s birthday. Mr. Bowie knows how to wrap a present up in a cute way. Happy Birthday, Sis! We love you! Espresso for two?

  1. Happy Birthday Herman’s sis! If Mr. B catches a whiff of heavenly chocolate, it might as well be his special day. 🙂
    I’m sure Mr. B can be very helpful in his own adorable way. Cheers!

  2. Give a big “Happy Birthday!” to your sister from me, the kitties and all our critters. Mr. Bowie did a great job on the wrapping.

    • Thank you so much, Ellie! I’m sure Mr. Bowie would like to hear you sing, but I think he’s more interested in treats…

  3. Happy Birthday to your sister, Herman! Mr. Bowie did such a nice job of wrapping the present! Your post reminds me of an old saying Rick’s mother used to keep up on her kitchen wall. “Every day is a gift. That’s why it is called The Present!”. Love to all of you. Have a wonderful day! Yes, cat treats, chocolate and espresso for all!

    • Thank you so much, Lavinia! Love the old saying of Rick’s mother too.
      And yes, we had a great day with espressos, chocolates and treats for Mr. Bowie.

    • Thank you so much, my friend. She will be very happy with such lovely and warm wishes. Mr. Bowie says “Meow!”

  4. Oh my fantasies are going crazy right now, about a cat wraps….. from Tuna wrap to mouse wrap, …well hey I’m talking about cat food here. What a special birthday card for your sister, hope you all celebrated with espresso dipped Chocolate wraps. Do you think I should write a cat food cooking book?

    • So true, Danella! I don’t like wrapping presents, but I do like getting presents, though… Thank goodness Mr. Bowie can give me a paw this Christmas! 😉

  5. Mr. Bowie is a mancat of many skills even without having opposable thumbs, whilst most humans cannot do half as much as he when we do! It must be incredibly intimidating and overwhelming to live with a mancat with more talent, knowledge, striking good looks, a perfect physique, and superior intelligence than you do. No need to fear however, as I’m sure Mr. Bowie loves you unconditionally. As long as you continue providing delicious noms, entertaining toys, a comfortable palace (home), unquestioning obedience, and endless worship that is.

    • Thank you so much for your nice words, my friend! Much appreciated.
      Mr. Bowie says “Meow!” Have a nice Sunday!
