Early Holiday Gifts for my Pets

Just wanted to introduce my two cat babies - Bena (black short-haired) and Loki (long-haired). They got a couple of early holiday gifts (fleece cushions) that I bought at the Second Chance Pet Adoption holiday bazaar.

Bena had to try out both before allowing Loki to sleep on either one - she is the queen of this household but does allow Loki to have first choice when it comes to food.
