Update. I have one less cat than I listed in my hints. I'd been taking care of Gavin, my niece's cat, since last December while she's stationed overseas. Last week my sister (niece's mother) took Gavin to live with her. It's a much better situation all the way around, both for Gavin and for all my other cats. Anyway, my secret santa has one less kitty gift to try to cram into the box.
