Hello! My name is Thelonious Dribble and some of you may know I’m the youngest in the house with my brothers Thompson, Diego-san and also the food fella. I feel very lucky because my housemates asked if I would do our 2011 holiday letter! Usually they don’t ask me to do anything except leave them alone… but I don’t mind because I’m up for doing anything anytime anyplace! Did I already mention anytime? For those who have never met me, come on over and visit! I love to meet new people. In the meantime the next best thing you can do is listen to the squeaky bathroom door at the food fella’s work because he said it sounds just like my MEOW! It reminds him of home where I try to follow him into the bathroom and I cry and cry until he finally opens the door!
This past year was a very special year for us because we got a tent for Christmas and the food fella made sure it was stocked with nip toys all year. There’s nothing I love more than licking my nip banana. Unless it’s licking my nip fish! Or my nip stick of dyno-mite! Sometimes Thompson or Diego-san will grab one of the toys from the tent but usually they just go away when I join them in licking the toy! Our house motto is it’s good to be licked every now and then!
Thompson is a pretty good big brother. He likes to wrestle and growl at me. He usually spends his day sleeping in the living room and sometimes I’ll even join him for a nap. But not for long. Because I’m on the go! Got things to do!
I look up to my other brother, Diego-san, a lot. And not just because when I chase him he likes to jump up somewhere I can’t jump up to! He howls and hisses at me and I know he just would love if I could jump as high as him! His are loving whaps on the top of my head!
The newest thing in our house this year was the food fella trying to learn how to play what he calls a gee-tar! It’s very loud and it’s even louder when he does what he calls singing and my brothers and I call CAT-erwalling! Diego-san sits next to him when he practices his gee-tar but Thompson and I usually stay downstairs until the racket is finally over. You think with all the time he practices he would get better. We’re all crossing our paws! (Thompson uses his back paws to cross!) If it’s not the noise from the gee-tar it’s the noise he makes telling us all about the ringing he hears in his ear. Sometimes when I sit on his chest he asks if I can hear the ringing. When I butt my head against his head I do hear the wind whistling in one ear and out the other! But that’s definitely more of a whistle then a ring though so I’m not sure I know what he’s talking about just like most other stuff.
Well I hope you liked my letter. I have to get going. I gotta look for some food or play with my brothers. Or look for some food. I hope y’all have a great holiday full of nip and fun! Oh and by the way, my food dish is empty!

We got our first shipment of bonito this week and as soon as I opened the package all three boyz came into the kitchen with eyes wide open. I put a little in their dinner dishes and they couldn't snarf it down fast enough. I have yet to try using it in my cooking, but the boyz thank Daisy for introducing such a tasty treat into the house....

One word that rarely describes Thompson is "playful." Playing with cat toys is challenging because to do it upright means trying to time batting the toy with hopping to maintain balance. Usually when he plays he does so on his side and often substitutes his back paws or his nose for his missing front leg. Last night for some reason he was in an extra playful mood, hiding inside the empty spot in one of our cat scratchers and then later batting the ball around in this toy. I didn't have my camera handy and just caught the last moments of playtime. Somehow though, to see Thompson play ALWAYS makes me feel happy.
