Has your kitty "discovered" the Christmas tree yet???

post #1 of 27
Thread Starter 
So...how many naughty kitties out there have "discovered" the Christmas tree yet? Tonight Isabella did She was all the way in the middle of it with her head sticking out like a little ornament I wish I had a picture of it it was soo cute! Jasmine keeps trying to get into the tree, but her chubby bottom can't quite make it. Velvet and Abilene have been so far and have yet to get in trouble. So who else has a kitty who's "discovered" how fun Christmas trees are??

Nope not yet. Because it hasn't been put up yet..lol. I was going to put it up today but hubby didn't get motivated enough.

My tree is currently taking up most of my study because of my girls fascination with the tree. Mostly with chewing on it!

I'm kind of dreading putting my tree up. I'm sure that bean will be one of the "naughty" kitties that won't leave it alone.

I'm going to boast here but hope that i'm not tempting fate, but Rosie and Sophie have been really good Rosie pulled down the bottom set of beads once, but that's been it.

I have NO ornaments left....Maybe 10 bows left...I've redecorated about a dozen times in the last week. And fat boy Tiger usually doesn't bother ANYTHING. He's a lump normally..doesn't play with the cat dancer, the turbo-scratcher, crinkle balls or catnip. But as soon as I put up the Christmas tree...He came ALIVE!....All 20-something pounds of him!
He scales the tree to attack the angel...so the angel has been replaced with a giant bow

So far Abby has just been batting at the occasional ornament, and sleeping on the tree skirt

Phenom likes to hide in the corner behind it and Phantom loves to climb it. She knows she gets in trouble for it but she still does it!

I was just about to post that the boys were doing well, until 8-Bit did a Matrix like leap to pull down the Christmas Moose topper we have. :::: sigh::::: It's started again.

Oh the kittens have definitly discovered the Christmas tree. I am constantly kicking them out of it. Just the other day two of them were sleeping in it. Silly kitties!

And here I was expecting another rant about the Cat Brat Gang! Go Tiger!

We *finally* put the tree up last night. No decorations yet because I didn't want to put up too much temptation for Ginger. So far so good - the tree was still standing this morning. Trent was quite insistent on helping me tie the tree skirt on. He was being a real stinker! But after that he decided that he made the bestest decoration around - which he does. Ginger was interested in sniffing the lights, and otherwise played monkey-see-monkey-do and just laid under the tree like Trent. Ophelia never has cared about the tree except for laying underneath it.

Oh trust me, they are guilty too! Bo is notorious for bopping the ornaments off the tree, and batting them around underneath it. Right now Duke and Cooter are asleep in the pile of a skirt they made as Bo is sitting in the sleigh contemplating on how to finish pulling the other bows off... I'm glad that it's a pre-lit tree, otherwise there would be NO lights on it... I'm positive of that!


Edited to add that just as I clicked the submit button, Bo climbed the tree, jumped to the entertainment center, and now Mary and Joseph from my nativity scene are in about a million pieces...
I told you... THEY ARE HELLIONS!

Thanks for the stories everyone- they're too funny! Isabella tried it again this morining, but i couldn't snap a picture in time She saw me and realized she was being naughty and took off like a bat outta hell ....taking along with her a nice strand of garland lol...what a bratty little princess! It's kinda cute though, she's usually the little scardy cat, and now she's comming out of her shell to "celebrate" the holidays by being a little kitty ornament.

I'm dreading it, in a nice way....

The first year when mine were kittens I posted a pic of the tree all trashed,and a picture of minx sitting in it yawning, so last year i thought adult cats..all will be fine, well actually no, they were climbing in it before anything went on it! By the time christmas came, i'd re dressed it a zillion times, and eventually gave up, but also got some cracking shots of them sleeping within the branches. I am buying a new one tomorrow as I had to throw the last out, the branches were drooping to the ground and it was a very sorry looking thing

But still, it is cute and funny and I get great pictures, and theres worse things in the world than a trashed tree lol

They all think that it is their personal canopy and enjoy sleeping on the skirt. I found one ornament on the floor (I've had it up for about a week now) but that's it! I haven't actually seen anyone touch it, either.

Velvet sleeps on the tree skirt every year underneath the tree- that is her favorite spot. She'll roll over on her back and look at the lights -it's soooo cute! / She never messes with the tree though / Just isabella

no, because it's not decorated yet.

One of my sweet little furballs installed a "catwalk" around our tree. They did it last year too. My tree is near the fireplace mantle and one of my babies gets on to the mantle then steps onto the branches of the tree. She then proceeds to walk completely around the tree in a circle. So when you look at the tree there is the whole bottom half, then this big 1 foot open space, then the little top half of the tree. I know that it's one of 2 cats - Pebbles or Peanut. I know this because my other two are heavy weights and the branches wouldn't hold them.
I've put up tin foil on the mantle, but if it happens again, I'll be sure and post pics.

I don't have them up yet, but I'm probably tempting fate by planning to put up two trees this year...our usual one in the living room, and a sports-themed one downstairs in the family room. My boys are usually pretty good about the tree, though. Harvey could care less about it and Tailer just likes to sleep on the skirt. Forest is pretty curious about it, and may sniff at it or bat at some low-hanging ornaments, but his CH makes him incapable of climbing in it or doing any real damage. The only thing I really have to worry about is him accidentally bumping into it and toppling it over...so I make sure we have really, really sturdy tree stands.

The tree is going up slowly, hoping the girls will get used to it before all the decorations go on; the boys are older and are acting very nonchalant about the whole thing. I put all the pieces (it's artificial) on the floor last night so they could check them out. Got it put in the stand & brought the lights into the room this morning; Bridget promptly grabbed a bulb & decided to chew on it. (silly kitten!) We have 3 kittens this year, so I'm a little concerned. The tree is tied to the furniture, so hopefully they won't knock it over. I'm anticipating a fight over who gets to lay on the tree skirt, tho.

Well I have it up w/ lights but nothing else. I'm leaving the hard work to grandma tomorrow. While she's home with my daughter they can decorate it. Puff has already attacked the lights while we were untangling them, chewed on the bottom of the leaves, and he likes to sit under it. So we'll see what else he gets himself into tomorrow..lol. But if it's anything like today I'm expecting the worst.

Uhhh, my girls are being soo rotten this year! My mom just called and told me that Jasmine took down 3 ornaments. I guess those ornaments weren't to her liking...her and that torti-tude...
post #27 of 27
OK so I thought Whitey was doing really good with the tree. He has been using it to stalk from only.

Until last night...

Apparently he wasn't happy that I didn't play with him right away last night (homework), so by 11 o'clock or so all of a sudden I here the tree rattle and see a paw stick out and bat at an ornament.

Needless to say I gave up and he got his playing wish.
