Cat and Christmas Tree


Having just brought home and set up our own real Christmas tree, I could relate to Simon’s Cat, Santa Paws as he discovers all the fun of a tree in the livingroom bejeweled with new playthings!  I had many giggles watching the video below and hope you will too!

For us, so far, so good.  There have been pine-needle eating contests here by the cats (the kitten won) and hide and go seek games played under the branches.  There has been batting and tapping of ornaments which are break-proof specifically placed on the lower branches for some pawsome fun to be had and with fingers crossed, all is well.  I don’t think that eating pine needles off of the tree nor drinking from the christmas tree holder base is wise.  Lucky for me (and them) we only use plain water and no chemicals to keep the tree moist.  I do tie a tree skirt around the base, but the houdini paws of our cats have learned to untie and find a way to play/drink in the sappy water.  Silly kittens!

Do you have any pets who like to participate in the fun of setting up a Christmas tree?  Please share as I love to hear all about their antics!

Shine On!


Santa Claws is Here!


Having just brought the real live tree in this week, I can well-relate to the video ~ can you???  My thanks to ShareChair who posted this on her blog earlier this week!  Since I’m not feeling too well, I thought this would be a cute one for the cat lovers in the blog o’sphere for the holidays!  Please accept this post for Michelle’s Weekly Pet Photo as well!  I know I’m stretching it a bit, but I’m doing it anyway!

Big hugs all!

Shine On!
