Oh jeez you're all so lucky! I insisted that we get a real tree even though we have Bella and Pepper who have never seen a christmas tree before. And in the two days we've had it I haven't had a moments rest!
I guess I should have expected it, but so many people say their cats don't bother it. . . I was hopeful. Pepper actually climbs up into the tree (dropping millions of pine needles, ornaments, etc) and chews the lights (aren't kitties suppossed to be smarter than that?!). Then Bella runs circles around the tree trying to get to Pepper, but getting pissed that the needles hurt her face when she tries to poke her nose in! Then I've caught Pepper in the act of jumping from the couch towards the tree batting at the ornaments and garland. If he knocks anything down then Bella runs over to chew up whatever fell.
So it's funny to write about it, but I'm not sure how I'll manage until Christmas.
Btw, everyone's trees are just beautiful.
I hope more people post pics of theirs. I'll try to get one of mine if I can ever get the garland and ornmanents all on at one time again!
