Do the pets give you gifts? My purr-babies used to "buy" gifts for my Mom from their allowance.
No, I'm not crazy, it was a running joke.
My Mom would always say, "just get me something practical " but I knew she loved pretty stuff. So "the cats" would get her beautiful and very impractical gifts while Hubby and I bought her stuff she could use. She's always complain, "Oh you spent too much" and I said, "No, Mom, the purr-babies got you that with their allowance, I didn't buy that!" Then she would have to accept it.
My cats still buy my brother's "Santa Gifts", just as they have for the past 25 years.... okay, different cats, but same tradition.
