It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas…

It should, right? Christmas is only four days away!

Just a quick maintenance note before I get to all the holiday fun. As I mentioned in my last post, I’ve now migrated the blog over to being self-hosted. I was told that anyone who subscribed to the blog via will now only see posts in WP Reader and will no longer receive emails when there’s a new post. If you still want to receive email notifications, then you will need to subscribe again, which you can do on the sidebar to the right (if you’re on a computer) or at the very bottom (if you’re on mobile). Sorry for the hassle – this only applies to readers. If you subscribed with your email address before, you should continue to receive email post notifications as usual.

Holiday Cards

Thank you to all our kitty, doggie and human friends for sending all of the wonderful holiday cards. We love them!

Thank You, Pinky!

The Three Chatty Cats also want to say thank you to our doggie BFF, Pinky the Chi. Pinky and mom Jennifer sent the cats some toys. We received adorable handmade toy mice that Jennifer makes for shelter kitties! And Pinky being a pup, of course she had to include a toy for Eddie. Thank you so much to Pinky and Jennifer! Be sure to follow @pinkythechi on Instagram. She’s a 3-pound toothless rescue senior chihuahua and is too cute for words.

Meanwhile, Eddie waits patiently for his turn.

Presents Have Arrived

Our Secret Paws package has arrived! I’m not letting the kitties open it yet, but to whoever sent it…it arrived safely and the kitties are very excited. I’ll post more about it once I (the mean mama) let the cats open their presents.

  1. Love the crew (including Eddie … he’s so patient! … then again, he lives with three cats … so the lesson’s probably been well learned by now). We didn’t send out cards … but we wish you the happiest holidays! You’ve been an amazing support and sounding board and I’m so proud to know the blogger behind Three Chatty Cats AND Cat Lady Alley :)

  2. Merry Christmas to the Three Chatty Cats and their humans. Oh yeah, and Eddie as well. We love puppers as well!

  3. Oh, that video,vyou have so many cards, it means many, many friends. I don’t know why, I am a simple and humble cat, my heart starts to run furiously when I see Sophie, and my cheeks are so hot… I just don’t know…
    Merry Christmas to you all!

  5. Whoa! Such a cute card. Mine is in the mail so you may have to redo that video. MOL! Can’t wait to see what the cats got in their SP package. We got our e-mail notification.
