Oh, Christmas Tree. OH, Christmas Tree Pt 2

When I was nearly done decorating the tree, I sprung the Loudermilks from their room.   Once again, the curious boys crept into the living room to take a closer look.

They pawed, batted and sniffed while Charlene supervised from a nearby chair.

While the boys were engrossed in the tree, Charlene leapt from her perch, landed just inches away from the Loudermilks, and scared the bejesus out of them.



They quickly recovered, and went back to business.



Later that day, while I put the finishing touches on the tree, I was treated to this lovely holiday kitten concert.

For spastic kittens, they keep very good time, don't you think?




PS In unrelated news, I'm going to temporarily turn on "comment moderation".  I've been getting too many spammy comments, which is driving me bonkers, and I need to try to discourage that for a spell.  Once things settle down,  I'll switch it back.

  1. So cute and such musical talent--the Loudermilks have it all!

    I'm glad to see that they've been introduced to the Bean. Work your magic, Charlene!

  3. Have they tried to climb it yet? My cats have never been interested in our tree, but I am fostering 5 kittens and I'm certain that they would be VERY interested! Unfortunately, they have ringworm so they are stuck in the guest bedroom :( BOO!!

    They are adorable and I loved the little mews of the kitty telling you to stop recording and come play!!

    1. They're not really interested in climbing it. Mostly they just like being under it. The tree is pretty dense so it would be difficult to climb too high.

  4. Super sweet! Laurie, do you wire your tree in place? I'm foreseeing big crashes any minute with very happy kittens! :)

    1. It's a fresh tree, so it's pretty heavy and the base is wide. It would be really difficult for them to take it down.

  5. Is that Graham coming up halfway through the second video that I hear burbling and purring? So cute.

    Laurie, you are a brave woman for having a Xmas tree out around kittens. I have 2 full grown cats and I'm still nervous with them around my tiny tree.

    1. Yes, it's Graham.

      They are actually pretty good around it. They might mess with it for a second or two, but they have a short attention span and move on quickly.

  6. Maybe they know every time a bell rings, a kitty finds a forever home? It's the season for believing! Purrs..

    1. Love that! I think that should be the new saying for when a bell rings.

    2. Delightful thought, Colehaus Cats, I love it!

    3. I like that....each ring, eh? Anyone have a count of how many kittens the Loudermilks just helped?

    4. I lost count of the Loudermilk's announcements!

      Their bell-ringing is way more enjoyable than *other* bell-ringers!

  7. OMCC! They are beyond adorable! And way to go, Charlene! They didn't stay scared for too long though. Great videos! Thanks for sharing them, Laurie!

  8. Everybody needs a kitten for Christmas :)

  9. My advice? Take the show on the road. For a modest admission fee, you can raise a record-breaking donation for the animal shelter next year.

  10. You must have those little bells TIED to the branches so that they don't come off. So. Fun.

  11. That is just adorable! Good job, Miss Butterbean. The bells must be pretty well anchored to the branches and the music was quite lovely.

  12. Hark how the bells, sweet kitten bells, all seem to say SEE HOW IMPOSSIBLY CUTE WE ARE!!!

    ReplyDelete
  13. How kind of you to give the kittens such a lovely toy to play with ;)

    ReplyDelete
  14. I must now found bells to put on our tree for Louie. Maybe that will keep him from climbing it...

  15. My goodness, a lot of kitty angels got their wings that night, didn't they?!

    I love these videos! And now I must find some little bells to put at the bottom of the tree for my cat crew...

  16. Those bells are the perfect kitten distraction! Here's hoping the babies stay little long enough that they're not able to reach anything more breakable higher up. I suspect that the bells will keep them occupied for some time, though -- and they have a lovely sweet sound. An excellent choice for the bottom of the tree!

  17. Really spectacular, Laurie! I fear these darling Loudermilks are reaching their "ideal weight" and will soon be off on Santa's sleigh... say it isn't so, that they'll stay through Christmas!

  18. So cute. Ding a ling a ling! Ping ping. Oh I like this bell. Love it.

  19. Oh, Christmas tree, oh, Christmas tree! Your ornaments are (soon to be) history! *G*

  20. It's not Halloween, Charlene!

    I love the little tails at attention.

  21. I loved Charlene's entrance in the first video...best use of 17 seconds known to human kind!

  22. Charlene may have frightened them momentarily, but they sure recovered quickly so they could get some kisses from the lovely Ms. Bean.
