Thank you to everyone who sent messages of love and concern all year.  I appreciated every note.  The cats and I will enjoy our Christmas, and we're looking forward to the new year.

Merry Christmas, Lesa! You'll be in my thoughts today. I know this can't be an easy Christmas for you. The photos are wonderful!

Just for you, Ingrid! I knew you'd want to see the cats at Christmas.

Merry Christmas, Mason. Thank you! The cats are such hams! I hope you have a wonderful 2011 of good health, great joy, and great books!

Lesa said...

Thank you, Michael. I hope the rest of your holidays are filled with family, love, and good books!

Thinking of you this holiday. Cats are wonderful company and such cheap amusement. Best for a better '11!

Lesa said...

Thank you, Janet. I really appreciate the notes from all of you saying you're thinking of me. Thank you. My Mom and I have had so much fun with the cats. In fact, I had a cat Christmas, and I'll have a couple pictures tomorrow of it.

I hope you have a wonderful 2011, Janet. I'm hoping we all have good years without a great deal of worry in our lives.

Merry Christmas to you and your sweet (and spoiled) furbabies! They are all just too cute! Please give them a gentle squeeze from me, and big hugs to you and your mom too!

Wishing you blessings and all good things for a lovely 2011.

Lesa said...

Well, you're certainly right, Beth, that they're spoiled! And, my Mom, who I wouldn't normally call a cat person, really has enjoyed them. We've had a great time laughing at the cats.

Big hugs, Beth. Thank you. I wish you the same - all good things, including good health in 2011.

Merry Christmas Lesa! May your New Year be filled with many blessings.

Lesa said...

Thank you, Bev. Merry Christmas. I hope you have a wonderful 2011, with good health and happiness.

Best wishes to you and the Holstine cat family.

They could not be cuter! Thanks for sharing their photos with us.

On to a happy new year, with lots of good books, family, friends--and cat high jinx.

Lesa said...

Bonnie,

You're right. It's been wonderful to have my mother here, and she and I have enjoyed a great deal of laughter over the cats' antics. Thank you. I hope the rest of your holiday season is beautiful.

Lesa said...

That's cute, kathy, since the funniest cat is Jinx. He's a delight.

You're right. I hope you also have a wonderful 2011, filled with family and friends, lots of love, and lots of good books.

Have not seen Nikki's photo before that I remember, but that is one beautiful cat.

And, seeing Stormy again--who has an impressive name--reminds me of what a beautiful, regal-looking cat she is, too.

Lesa said...

The girls are beautiful, aren't they, kathy? Nikki was Jim's cat, and she's still mourning him. Soon after Dickens' sister died, a bunch of kittens were dropped in a box on a November cold morning at our Main Library. Nikki was only 5 weeks old, and she was one of the kittens from that litter. A book lover's cat from day one.

And, Stormy knows just how beautiful she is against red, and likes to pose. I don't care what people say about cats not seeing color. She always knows red is her color.
