Holiday Musings

The Holiday Season was busy, busy. Now that things have slowed down a bit I am able to post again... meow. The tree was beautiful and so fun to lay under. The twinkling lights, the fresh smell of fir. Every bulb and ornament beckoned ... 'play with me, play with me'. Of course, when I did, Mom was not pleased, to say the least. I can still hear her, "Kodi you leave those ornaments alone". She ruins all my fun. Gizmo and Missy Girl liked the ornaments too. Especially the golden jingle bells. Every once in awhile you'd hear the ting, ting of the bells being batted by little paws.. meow .. meow. We were gentle and never knocked any off the tree and onto the floor. You would think Mom would be happy about that part and let us amuse ourselves.

Under the tree, the packages made a nice bed. Ribbons and bows made great toys. I found that if you pulled and batted at the bows long enough they would release themselves from the packages. Free to be scattered across the floor and chased after. Mom would get up in the mornings and find our latest "prey" sprawled across the carpet. "You kitties were very naughty last night", she would say as she picked up the remnants left behind from our escapades... purrr.

I think we were very good kitties... not once did we try to climb the tree. There is something to be said for that. (Hmmmm.. something to look forward to next year.) Although, the water in the tree stand did need to be replenished often. It was just more convenient to drink from the tree then to walk into the kitchen... meow..meow. Humans think there is some great mystery surrounding the fact that cats drink from the tree stand when they have fresh water in their dish. Sorry to break it to you guys. No great mystery. Just pure and simple laziness. It is closer. Why exert the extra effort to walk all the way into the kitchen when there is perfectly good water right in front of you. Doesn't take a genius to figure that one out.. meow .. meow.....
