He wasted no time attacking the Christmas tree

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
PJ just snuck through the doorway, races around the corner upstairs.....stops dead in his tracks when he sees the Christmas tree....we've had it about 4 hours now, not decorated yet.

Realizes I'm hot on his heels, so he takes off......makes his leap.....and......

...lands smack in the middle of the Christmas tree!

What does he do then?!?!

Bawls for meowmy to come get him down.....he doesn't like this, it feels icky to his paws!

It is so nice not having kittens in the house. I've got the tree up and no one has bothered it. I had more problems with Much eating the tissue paper wrapping the ornaments than anything on the tree.

My brother just got 3 cats (2 male kittens 2-3 months old and a 1-year old female). When they put their tree up and decorated it, both kittens immediately started chewing on the lights. He removed the lights from the last foot or so of the tree and hasn't had any other issues so far.

I don't put up a tree so Junior will never know what a Christmas tree is.

PJ cracks me up! I started decorating this evening - so far only have a few things out/up. George, of course, has checked it all out - and as of right now, has left what's out alone. Can't wait until the tree goes up!

I read that as Munch the first time through and thought "well DUH, if you name your cat Munch what do you expect?!?"

I've been pretty lucky SO FAR anyways! Zoe has given the bottom branches an occasional swat but nothing big....but I do have this little standing old world type Santa that she buried her nose in and then started grooming his beard! But that too has only been the one time...just gotta check it all out I guess

Don't look at me. DH named her after some character in a Robin Hood series.

At least it didn't fall over with him in it-perhaps he wants to be a logger when he's older.

The family cats here have always had their own tradition to,as soon as the tree is down and put together,they face away from the tree,reverse backwards a bit,flick their tails and give the tree a spraying,they have done it every year without fail,Blackie was probably the most dedicated until she died.

That is why we do not have a tree . . . and will not be getting one this year. With all the munchkins, it would be a disaster!!

We haven't had a tree for a no. of years. 16 y/o when Coco was a kitten we had one, from memory she liked to swat at the decorations. Following years, she didn't bother. I'm sure if I put one up this year, Blossom would give it a good going over.

I haven't had a tree in years, either. It just got to be too big of a hassle, worrying all the time if the furbabies might eat the tinsel or get shocked from the lights, while I was gone at work or something..

Last year was the first Christmas that my s/o and I spent together in our own place, and he just HAD to have a tree for our first Christmas together. So we reached a compromise, and got a little tree that we could put up on a higher place, where the cats couldn't get to it. They sure were thinking about it, though: you could see it in their eyes, everytime they walked by it..

I do miss having a tree: it doesn't seem like Christmas w/o one..
