Claus was named by our middle son after a friend of his from Germany, but we still think of him as a Christmas cat. At the restaurant at Holiday World, there are several paintings of Santa’s workshop and many of them contain a cat that has the same unique markings as Claus. We told our granddaughters that the paintings prove that Claus is related to Santa’s cat. They just smile back at us skeptically and humor us, as if we were completely insane, much the way our children do.
