I have lots of memories of past Christmases with the cats. But this is one of my favorites.

Cat spread eagle in front of the Christmas tree

This photo was taken about 10 years ago. Wally…always the exhibitionist…spread eagle in front of the tree. And Ernie…looking at him with a bit of disgust as if to say…”Jeez Wally…not in front of the tree.” I liked this photo so much, I used it as our Christmas card the following year.

Oh how I miss Wally and all his silliness.
