Quick! Look!

Before the demon feline wrecks it again!!

Mind you, the deccies came as a surprise and he managed to get himself stuck! Just tinsel and lights and my precious santas (too high for him to reach!) - easy to rebuild without baubles.

It was so pretty, I turned the lights off and stared at it for about 15 minutes :-)


No pressies underneath yet - I am not going to tempt fate! Those are still locked in a cupboard!

24hr update - it's still standing, a bit battered, but still standing. Tinsel is still intact (mostly), ancient Canadian Santas untouched and the lights still work! And the feline demon seems to be beginning to lose interest [x's fingers]

But I am still bending branches back into shape where he has slept on them - being a big little ginger fluffball!

48hr update - the tree is still standing - just. Sadly, Charlie has noticed the Santas and two of them ended up on the floor (luckily undamaged). The tinsel is a mess, the tree is all bent out of shape and the lights are becoming knotted.

Two things I said to MB (safely back from his travels) as I stubbornly bent the tree back into shape, replaced the tinself and recovered my Santas.

I am going to have my Christmas tree if it kills me!'

'These Santas have hung on a Christmas tree for over 40 years - they will hang on it this year!'

I have seen trees hanging from the ceiling rather than standing on the floor/table. this makes them swing alarmingly when jumped on & pets soon learn not to bother.

Just an idea:-)

This is the feline who has swung from....

blinds...

curtains...

light shades...

and even tried to get on top of the glass shower partition!

Nice thought, though... :-)

hmm - too quiet.....[wanders off]

What a beautiful tree...I can't get over your Charlie wrecking it!! He is something else! But it looks very very beautiful in that picture. Congratulations!

Is it a levitating Christmas tree? It looks like it is defying gravity already... I'm all confused now.

I *love* Christmas. I have a small tree with far too many lights and decorations and just stare at it too (and no cat to terrorise it!)

I have found my Christmas tree no has to be biased.....all teh decor is on one side- Kitty can only oplay with the ones she can swat from the fish tank table...and the inside, so my tree is rather...lopsided. Still, it's entertainment..

CQ, I have a business proposition for you. How much d'you reckon we'd make if we sold X-mas trees complete with the pressies already bought and wrapped?

craziequeen said...

silentmum: after a lifetime with cats, nothing surprises me - although I did snigger when I found Charlie knotted up in the lights!

eric: hi sweetie! I was under the impression that's how men thought they came? [wink]
It would have to be pink wrapping for girls' gifts and blue for boys! [oh, must go and comment on your 'Pink' post!]

LOL, hey darlin'! That's how men think they come which is why the business idea is great - it will be so natural to men! [evil grin]
