Santa Claws is Watchin'
Strider picked one of the coldest days to run out the back door (he hadn't done it for over a year, so Mom had let her guard down some - but only a little bit, she's always careful. She was shuttin' the door and it almost shut on him). Mom had to go get the flashlight and walk around in the neighbors' yards followin' him around. She was afraid someone was gonna call the police or somethin'!! Then he went up by the road (Mom gets really upset when he does that) and he CROSSED THE STREET!! He went across and rolled around on the ground, then when Mom went after him, he crossed back and stopped at the edge of the road to roll around again. Luckily it's not a big street, but sometimes it is kinda busy. There were no cars at the time, though. Then Mom was able to grab him. When she got home she realized it probably wasn't a good idea to be carryin' a big, metal flashlight in the cold around without gloves. Her hand hurt really bad!!
A couple days later, Mom was still asleep and Dad opened the back door and Strider shot out and off the edge of the deck!! It's kinda high, maybe 10 feets or somethin'. Dad ran out and saw Strider look up at him and then he came right back up and into the house. He doesn't do that for Mom!!
Mom purromised that she'd get our Secret Paws package sent out today. She'd better, or maybe Santa Claws won't visit her, either!!
We wants to wish efurryone a Merry Chrissy-mouse and Happy Hollydays and all that kinda stuff!!
