    My poor Tree

    Cameron and I decorated the tree on Thanksgiving - here it is being put up


    and here it done and lit all pretty


    That was two weeks ago already.

    I heard a party oging on downstairs last night. I woke up to this


    Branches are off. Lights are unstrung. Countless balls are scattered on the floor. Notice the big chunk in the back about 1/3 the way up? Its a sad sad looking sight.

    So who dunnit? Shouldn't there be justice for the tree?

    The very possible culprits

    All of those possible culprits look pretty innocent to me. Maybe it was a big mouse?????

    I would say most definitely. A Christmas tree is just one big playground for cats.

    Ahahahaaa, loved seeing all the photos! It's almost as if you KNEW you needed to prove what it was like once upon a time. Of course, being a cat owner of many years, that is probably true!

    It is a very pretty tree, quite a temptation! And in the law, leaving a temptation unguarded partially absolves the culprits!

    But I think it was a mousie, too. He he heee. Said by a similarly experienced cat owner!

    First of all I can't believe how big Cam is getting! He's so tall! I just remember him as the little toddler boy.

    And this is why we did not put up a tree this year at all. Funny thing is...I don't miss it. Since we do not have kids and won't have anyone over for Christmas it's not a big deal not to have one up. Plus it's not in a front window for neigbors to see either.

    Out of the culprits.......nope, I think they are all innocent too.
    Our goal in life should be - to be as good a person as our dog thinks we are.

    Thank you for the siggy, Michelle!

    That's why I put my tree up in my home office where I can close the door and keep my boys away from it.

    2008 was the first year I put a tree up since I got the cats. I initially just put the lights on and let Chessie and Casey in to see how they would react to it. Chessie went up to it and just stared at it in awe. Casey went right up under it and began rubbing against it, causing the tree to sway. So while the tree is up, no cats in my room.

    However, Smokey (aka "The Daredevil") thinks he has to be in here and tries to run past me to get in. One time last year, he was successful, and I was able to grab his rear half just as he started up inside the fully decorated tree.

    This was my first thought . . . .

    I also agree, the Fantastic Four are absolutely innocent - or very good actors

    I doubt that you'll ever find out who did it unless you can catch them in the act. This is why I haven't put up a tree in years. I can't even put up a small tree because Storm will try to eat it.

    Hi kitties,
    Groucho is in Cat Court today but I called him and left a voice mail about your unfair predicament. He's going to be outraged as he always is whenever a kitty is falsely accused. You'll be hearing from him tonight!
