I remember crying on the couch and saying to my husband "We won't see him attack his stocking again." Every year since he was a kitten Bailey has loved his Christmas stocking like nothing else. He's slept on it, cuddled with it and even attacked it (blame it on the catnip toys inside)
Bailey's first Christmas he met Santa Clause and wasn't too sure about him lol
So this year I was determined to get some really good pictures of him, that he wouldn't hate.
That's when I came up with this...a box! Cats love boxes so why not turn one into a photo shoot that he would actually enjoy?!
We just took an empty box, wrapped it in some Christmas paper and he immediately jumped in and posed while I took all the pictures I wanted.
I love this SO much!
We are so happy we decided to treat his cancer. Even though we don't know how much more time it will give us, He is so much more active now and his quality of life has dramatically improved. Despite his age and arthritis, he still chases our other cat Louie and gives him a run for his money
We're still worried this will be our last year with Bailey. We have no idea when or if the tumor will come back. He has also developed other issues unrelated to his cancer. He now has the early stages of heart disease and kidney disease that too often occur in older cats.
So we just try to take it one day at a time and enjoy every minute we have with him.
One thing we know for sure...this Christmas he was the best present under the tree!
