My neighbor came over all frustrated yesterday. She had found some tinsel in her Christmas stuff and decided to put it on the tree. Tinsel is a time consuming operation. She was ready to shoot herself when the worst happened – the cat discovered the shiny tinsel.
It reminded me of my Siamese cat. Everynight when I came home from work, I had to redo the bottom 2 layers of the tree. They were completely stripped.
My current cat chews on ribbons and strings. Any ornament on a ribbon or string is not safe. Packages under the tree cannot have any sort of ribbon bows.
I’ve never had a cat that climbed the tree, but I’ve heard stories….
Do you have any good cat in the Christmas tree stories?
