Cats and Christmas Trees
Once the Plunetts were gone and Thanksgiving was over, the tree went up. I know it's not the case with all cats and Christmas trees, but Wylla and Charlene really are curious about it, but don't really mess with it at all. They give it a sniff as they pass by, and Wylla naps beneath every now and again, but they're never tempted by the many shiny things hanging from its branches. Though they are very good, I still play it safe and everything on the tree is firmly attached and I've installed an "alarm system" of tiny little bells on the lowest branches, so if there's trouble in the tree, I'll be alerted.
They do love it when I water the tree. That's really fun and interesting. Each morning I fill up a tumbler for the tree and put it on the floor first for the girls to lap from (or stick their paws in). They both take their turns, and once they're done, what's left in the glass gets dumped into the tree stand.
So what about kittens? Well, we're on the wait list. I requested a small set, but now that it's the off-season, you never know how long it will take, so we will just wait and see what happens.
Until then, we'll just spend some quality time with these lovely girls.
