Angels (Already?)

We're in the Christmas spirit and we can't help it.

It all started with an angel. Well, actually, make it two..three...?

About a week ago, we were told we were winners in a contest held by our friends at Ask Fisher. We entered because the book they were giving away had to do with angels and we have a thing for them around here. Mom Julie's convinced they exist. As a cat priest, I see them now and again, but not often.

Here it is when we first received it in the mail.




Oopsie, sorry, I'm in the way. Did you know bar codes have a smell? (hehe)

Anyway, here it is.


Hey, my whiskers look like heavenly rays!

 I'll just step aside now.






The book, as you can see, is CHRISTMAS ANGELS by Elaine Marlier.

We loved it. In fact, we read it in two sittings, and yes, it was easy to get into the Christmas spirit! It's the story of a homeless man who finds himself facing the holidays without friends or family. He catches sight of an angel in a storefront window and that begins a series of events that includes having his very own Angel, a dog who never leaves his side.

We're so happy we won! Thanks, Fisher and Jobi!

We don't want to forget others who have sent good things our way. Sage, our woofie friend from Portland, Oregon threw us a cupcake. Then, an award came to us from Sherlock, Ash and Traveler. Yay!!

Angels are everywhere.

Purrs...
