Santa, Santa! It is Maria, Maria Christina. It is I, and I am writing you this holiday season because I want to send you my list of wishes. I am a good, good kittie and I do not screech like Tabitha does when she wants to eat (she wants to eat all the time, and so she is a very annoying sister). I also do not kiss up to the dogs like my sister Evelyn. It is revolting, have you ever seen such a thing? And then they share their food with her. Pfui. I am a cat’s cat.
Santa, first on my list is something special just for me, mostly for me, but I will share if you ask me to. You see, my dear, sweet, lovable veterinarian Dr. Pete who is so smart and handsome and sweet and tells me how pretty I am – he has recognized that I have an allergy. I think it is probably to my sisters, but he said perhaps it is food. And therefore I need to eat a special food. We have tried this Purina sensitive skin and it seems to be helping (and it is so so delicious). I can even share it with my sisters because I’m that nice of a kitty.
Along these lines, Santa, you see, we all eat at the same time and it is sort of like a big family – you know, everyone grabbing across the table and trying to get the best stuff first? Well, if we had this three-cat feeder contraption perhaps we could all eat together in peace. What do you think, Santa? I am a very community-minded cat, do no you not think so?
I am such a pretty cat too, Santa, and everyone says so. People love to pick me up and hold me and tell me how pretty I am. I would be so happy if a person would like to sponsor me and then come over and hold me and make me feel special.
I just cannot wait to see you and sit in your lap. I might think of other things to add to my list, but most of all Santa, I just want to tell you how happy I am that I was rescued and that I can live in safety on this farm.
Love to you and Mrs. Claus and all the cute elves,
