Words with Webster and Friendly Fill-Ins for December 23

Words with Webster: Kringle Kitty Kup

Words with Webster logo
Hello, all. Real Cat Webster here, and on this special holiday edition of Words with Me, I come to you from under the Christmas tree, where I have discovered a New Thing. What I have discovered is the cozy little nestlike area that is just perfect for catnapping. I am calling it the Kringle Kitty Kup, or K-3 if you want to sound cool like me.

Here we see a currently catless Kringle Kitty Kup.

In our house, the K-3 results from hours of catnaps on the quilty thing the people put around the bottom of the tree. It might be different in your house if you already have lots of presents under the tree or something, but I really hope all the kitties out there get to enjoy a K-3 this Christmas. Please let us know in the comments!

And here we see the ever-so-rare dual
Kringle Kitty Kups, meticulously created by
Real Cats Paisley and Webster.

Friendly Fill-Ins

Friendly Fill-Ins badgeAnd now to Friendly Fill-Ins from 15andmeowing and McGuffy’s Reader. They are a fun way to learn a little bit about the authors of the blogs you read. The first two questions, answered by old SoLT, are from Ellen of 15andmeowing, and the next two, answered this week by Real Cat Paisley, are from Annie of McGuffy’s Reader.

Old SoLT's answers:
1. I still need to find that great baked French toast recipe before Christmas. I made it last year for Christmas breakfast, and it was really easy and really good, but now I can’t remember where I got the recipe.

2. My favorite episode of Seinfeld is … okay, I have seen Seinfeld, but not for quite a few years and not enough to remember a specific episode.

Real Cat Paisley's answers:
3. What I really would like for Christmas is any toy with catnip.

4.  My favourite part of Christmastime is getting a new toy. I also enjoy having the humans clear the presents out from under the Christmas tree so I have plenty of space to sleep under it again.


  1. That French toast sounds really good. I hope you find it, and share it!
    Merry Christmas!

  2. I saw a tasty looking recipe on Facebook last week, but now I cant find it. Google it! Merry Christmas!

  3. Thank you for participating in the fill-ins, I am surprised by how many didn't watch Seinfeld. Here is a good recipe for baked French toast: http://allrecipes.com/recipe/221259/best-oven-baked-french-toast/
    I hope Santa is good to you. Have a wonderful Christmas. And enjoy napping under the tree, none of my cats are doing that this year, probably because it is too cold on the floor despite the tree skirt.

  4. Sleeping under the tree is great...warm and snuggly. No tree for us this year. Phooey! Enjoy the K-3. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Angel Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

  5. Poor Bear Cat doesn't have a K3 because we don't have a tree (ask him why ... go ahead!). We're wishing all of you a Merry Christmas full of love and peace (and K3s). And thank you for your friendship throughout the year!

    1. Why, Bear? Why don't you have a tree? ;)

  6. I like to make French Toast. I toast it and then pan fry it. I keep it in the oil until the smoke detector goes off. Have a Merry Christmas.

  7. Have fun napping under the tree, but be careful under there. I think it sounds like a fun adventure. :)

    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you and your family!

  8. Would you believe Mudpie has yet to sleep under the tree...and we're now nearing the end of her second Christmas season? She doesn't know what she missing!
