Christmas Through the Eyes of a Cat

(Image Source:

Don’t you just love Christmas? I know I sure do. All the shiny things that come out for me to play with are truly incredible. Apparently, they’re called Christmas decorations, but I’m pretty sure they just bring them out once a year because I’ve been really good.

All of those ornaments on something they call a Christmas tree are the most fun of all. They’re just hanging there, calling my name. I mean really, how can they just hang them and not expect that I’d want to play with them a little.

There’s so many things that turn me into a little kitten again. Those twinkling lights and tinsel on the tree look like fun to play with. And then there are presents with ribbons and bows on them.

The part about all of it that makes me sad is that I get in trouble if I play with any of it. So, I try to act like a good kitty and use my imagination instead.

As much fun as Christmas can be, I know how strong the memories of loved ones are at this time of year. Being part of a funeral home in Sydney I’ve seen so many people come in around Christmas and it’s especially difficult for them.

If you’ve been feeling this way, then you really need to come join us for the Christmas Memorial Service.

We don’t ever want to feel like you have to grieve alone so we offer a special evening for you to remember your loved one.

At our event, you will enjoy a delicious supper that will be complimented by lovely music to help liven the mood and lift your spirits. There will also be a special candle-lighting ceremony in memory of your loved one.

Another special part of the evening is that you will receive a Christmas ball with your loved one’s name inscribed on it. It’s our gift to you that we welcome you to take home and add to your tree.

If the idea sounds good but you aren’t sure about talking to people or feel like you may get upset, that’s okay. I will keep you company and you can give me some affection to make yourself and me feel good.

I know, spending time at a funeral home in Sydney with a cat may not seem like the most exciting plan, but sometimes you just need somewhere you can feel understood. We truly understand how much of a struggle Christmas can be and want to be there to provide support.

During my time as the resident cat I’ve learned that Christmas isn’t only about fun and ornaments, it’s about family and spending time with your loved ones. So, come and visit me and I will cozy up to you and make sure you aren’t lonely.

Just One Cat’s Opinion of a Heat Wave

Sydney funeralCan you believe this heat we’ve been having? I don’t know about you, but I’m not a fan of it. I can’t do anything fun because it’s way too hot to move around much.

You’ll find me sleeping most of the time and often on the cool floor. That’s right, the heat makes me feel like I’ve been banished away from everyone, stuck laying on the floor! I’m the most important part of Elite, I should be treated like royalty with someone fanning me all day.

Another thing about summer time is that us cat’s shed and get a much thinner coat. That’s another reason why I can’t stand it…it makes me lose my precious fur! So instead of being a beautiful fluffy kitty that everyone wants to touch, I’m almost bald. Well, maybe not but it sure feels like it.

Speaking of fur, I’ve been eating a whole lot of it. The grooming necessary around this time of year is off the charts. I’m constantly licking myself to try and keep cool. It does work a bit, but getting so many hairballs really isn’t fun after awhile.

The hairballs wouldn’t be so bad if I at least had some mice to chase but that’s not happening either. Not only are they hiding out, but it’s just too much work to try and run around after them in the blazing hot sun. The sun is just so bright…I’ve got to squint my eyes whenever I’m near it, how annoying!

Can you tell I’m ready for it to cool down anytime soon?

If you need a break from the heat like me, you could always come visit and browse our urns or cremation jewellery. I’ll gladly sit by your side and comfort you during the process. I’m really very sweet, I just don’t like the heat, but I promise I won’t complain to you about it while you’re here.

While we have to order most of them in, you don’t need to feel like you have to do it alone. I’d love to keep you company during this difficult process and you may have questions about the products for us.

If you like the heat that’s okay, I will still show you love. You probably go swimming to cool off, I’ve always wondered what it would be like to enjoy swimming. For now, I’ll suffer through a few more months until it’s back to the cooler temperatures I enjoy!
