Hope you are enjoying the new Nugget. I've been busy growing my coat out to stay warm as the nights get chillier. Saves me the bother of wearing a wrap.

My humans have been busy putting up their Christmas tree. I look forward to exploring it and playing with all the wonderful shiny cat toys they decorate it with!

Happy Holidays!
