The Good List

My furiend Misaki had a grreat idea today. After all those confessions last week, we don't want Santa Paws to get the wrong impression of us! We can't risk being mistakenly added to the naughty list, after all. So Misaki thought it would be a good idea to list some of the good things we do, just to remind him.

1. I look after my momma's health. Momma works very hard to stay healthy and in shape, and I do my part to help her. Every single day, without fail, I make sure she gets her exercise by taking her out for a walk. Not just once, but twice. Sometimes she grumbles about wanting to stay in bed or not go out in the cold or rain, but I poke her with my cold nose and sometimes even bark a little to get her motivated. Without me, she'd be a lazy lump on the couch.

2. I'm the official trash inspector. I have to conduct random searches of the kitchen trash can to make sure Momma isn't mixing recycleables in with the regular trash. I'm very thorough and make sure I've checked every last item. It's exhausting, but I do what I have to to protect our planet.

3. I keep the kitchen counters neat. Sometimes Momma gets lazy and leaves stuff out on the kitchen counters, even though that means the poor kitties have to walk an obstacle course. So I make sure to remind her on occasion that she needs to keep food off those counters and put away where they belong.

4. I'm Momma's official bed warmer. Really, Momma can't sleep in the winter without me. She gets into bed and starts trying to get settled, but she can't settle down until I jump up under the covers with her, plant a paw in her stomach, and put my head on her shoulder. Then she's warm and comfy and can sleep.

See, Santa? I'm a very Good Boy and deserve LOTS of presents this year! Thank you for your consideration.


  1. Casey you really do deserve a lot of presents from Santa, we may have all confessed to the little naughty things we do but each day we do good things like helping our pawrents stay fit and healthy, I too am a furry hot water bottle to my Momma and we snuggle up in bed or on the sofa together in this cold weather and enjoy eachothers heat! I also bring joy to my village by walking around in the jumpers and christmas pudding outfits and making everyone laugh!
    We all all good at heart!
    He is making a list and checking it twice we are not naughty we are ALL nice!
    Love Frank xxxxxxx

  2. That is a fantastic list of good things. I love how you snuggle with your mummy.
    Santa Paws will definitely be visiting you with a huge sack of toys and treats :-)

  3. You put us to shame Casey! For one thing we can't even see the tops of the counters, we are to short to jump up on our moms bed, the trash can is to tall for us to look into, AND we are lucky we get to go for a walk every other day cos its to cold. We are gonna have to think of another way to prove we should be on the good list!

  6. Great job Casey!! We are good bed warmers too. Mom just can't sleep without at least one of us snuggled right up beside her. And this time of year it is under the covers most of the night!
