Furkid Friday: Santa Paws is coming

Hi there humans, rodent types, and anyone else reading this.

This is Jasper the degu.

The human caretakers say it's just one more week until Santa Paws comes, so my rodent siblings and I are working hard on a plan to catch him. We're hoping we'll finally do it this year.

There are eight of us, and we're all older and wiser than we were last year. At least, we say we are... The Mummy human says that, while she agrees on the older part, the wiser part is debatable. How rude! But, anyway, there are eight of us, and there's only one of him. Well, he has his reindeer, but I'm told they aren't involved in doing anything other than pulling the sleigh Santa Paws carries the toys and nibbles around the world in.

OK... There's only one way in or out of this place, unless Santa Paws wants to climb out of his sleigh while it's hovering outside the window, several floors up, which would be both stupid and dangerous. All our cages have a clear view of that entrance, so we're coming up with a plan to catch him as he comes in. As long as at least one of us stays awake, we should catch him this time, right?

I'm not going to share any more details of the plan on here, just in case he's reading this. But, we're sure it's a great one.

Wish us luck!

Squeak soon,
Jasper

I think you are wiser. I mean, you know trying to get into your place from a hovering sled outside a window is dangerous indicates you having some wisdom.

...but I suspect crafty Sandy Paws just might do something like this... and those elves... Prep and Landing have that magic sparkle powder that makes folks forget what they've seen is a complication too - perhaps you need "gas masks" too (if those even work against sparkle powder)!

Iggy:
Good point. I'm not sure where we can get those masks from though... Especially not this close to the holidays...

Squeak soon,

I've always wondered if Santa has special powers, though, like becoming invisible. You know, since so many have tried to catch a glimpse of him and never have. Has always made sense to me. Explains a lot. ;)

Rita:
Sure does! Though that doesn't explain how we fail to smell him. I mean, you'd think a fat guy who spends so much time with a group of reindeer would be pretty easy to smell... Especially for creatures with such great senses of smell as we have.

Squeak soon,
Jasper

I never thought about whether someone with invisibility powers would still smell. I suppose I always figured they wouldn't because they never seem to be found out by scent and always by sound or failing invisibility powers or devices. Interesting thought. He certainly should have an odor to him, that's for sure. Especially wearing all those heavy clothes and visiting all the countries in the southern hemisphere--whew! LOL!

Exactly, Rita!
