Cat-Shaped Water Bottle



Three years ago, we came down with swine flu for the holidays and the only silver lining was our new kitten, Tiger Woods, who helped keep us warm.



This season is being celebrated with a minor, common cold, which feels almost reassuring in the context of serious, life-threatening health travails that seem to be striking family and friends this year. We still have the cat-shaped water bottle at our feet, though, and it's only gotten larger and more comforting, perfect for a rainy Christmas. Happy holidays, everyone.

Get well soon. I hope it is not a precursor to an affliction like yours that our resident feline, for the first time, inserted himself on the pillow between our heads last night ...

Dear Jan: I love the look of your "rescue cat" and am happy to hear he finally loves/trusts you enough to insert himself on pillows between heads. Merry Christmas, and really, the cold is no big deal.
