I’m sure everyone has heard of the world-famous “Santa’s sleigh”. Well, today there was a little Pudding in it!
Pudding the Christmas cat was very busy today. She helped Mrs Claus to put some frosting on a big batch of Christmas treats. She also checked the taste to make sure it was just right! She helped the elves to wrap up some Christmas presents. (But she did not help with the sticky tape this time!) She helped me to check the latest names on my ‘naughty or nice’ list. And then she had a game of chase with Hiccup and Hurkle the North Pole mice.
After all of that, she was ready for a big snooze. She went to the reindeer barn to find a cosy spot. “Ah ha! That looks comfy,” she thought. The elves had been busy checking over my sleigh. They had given it a good wash and polish. It was twinkly clean and shiny. They had also plumped up my special seat cushion. My cushion keeps me comfy every Christmas Eve. Flying around the world is a long journey you know! Pudding thought it was the perfect place for a snooze.
What Pudding did not know was that Santa’s sleigh was about to go for a test flight! The reindeer took it out for a short flight to check everything was working as it should. Ho! Ho! Ho! Can you imagine Pudding’s surprise when she woke up? She was flying through the air in Santa’s sleigh!
“Meow!” she cried. “Get me down!”
Finally, the reindeer landed. “Everything is in order,” they told the elves. “But Santa’s cushion might need some repairs.”
Pudding had been so scared she had stuck her claws tightly into my cushion! Never mind. It will soon be mended and ready for the big night.
