I've long since given up on putting a tree up, with four destructive cats hanging about.... and now this year is a definite no-no with The Moose charging around with reckless abandon.
However, I was lucky enough to be invited to my friend Sandie's house yesterday to help her decorate. Silly woman thought there would be no problem with the tree and her new kitten, Spatz (as written about earlier about the hamster incident).
The tree is a rather nice plastic 6 footer. Sandie and my DH set it up then Sandie went in to use the loo before decorating. It was mere seconds before young Spatz was under and halfway up that tree. Now mind you, no one scolded him because we were laughing so hard. We managed to keep him out of it after that until we began to hang enticing dangling ornaments from the branches.
Needless to say the tree is bare on the bottom foot or so, and we have all placed bets on when it will come down. I almost died when Sandie told her kids to tell Spatz "NO" when he got near the tree because (and I quote) "He needs to learn what no means.". Oh, she has a lot to learn.
Stacey took pics but then found out there was no film in the camera!
