I was thinking the same thing! Really, every day is Christmas here for the furry residents.

Aspen gets a big smoked beefbone on Christmas, Thanksgiving and her birthday as well as a new collar every birthday. This will be the 1st Christmas with the cat, but she doesn't like treats or catnip. (Of course I get the cat that isn't affected by catnip lol...)

Our animals, 1 cat (Mira) and 2 dogs (Skidder and Kenya) get the usual round of bones, toys, catnip, chewies, tennis balls, etc. Skidder gets his all wrapped up because that his greatest joy in life is to open Christmas Presents. Kenya would just rather have the toys right away. And Mira usually shows the typical kitty indifference.

I'm on a budget this year, so Buster & Lily are getting a new Nylabone each, plus one toy and a monster sized bag of Beggin' Strips. They might get some ham on Christmas Day in their chow bowls too.

the cats have been wasted on catnip all day. especially our jewish cat. looks like he's had too many manischevitzes.

i think they all think they're experiencing "fear and loathing in las vegas".

the birds await their presents. the turtle does too.

the hermit crabs just tuck one claw into the elbow of the rising other claw every time i say merry christmas to them.

little bastids.

Of Course!!!! The cats got new organic catnip toys which they've been drunkenly rolling around with all day, plus a few cans of pricey gourmet cat food for supper. The dogs got some new flexible "Nylabones", along with some big meaty beef shank bones, & a few stuffed toys that I know will be torn to shreds in a nanosecond, so I won't be handing those out until I can completely supervise. The cockatoo got a new acrylic gear-turning toy, along with a wooden Xmas tree toy to tear apart.

Our two cats also are not affected by catnip they show some initial interest and then just walk away
