Well, as some of you know we put our tree up last night. It's been sitting there naked all last night and today. Mom wanted me to get tired of trying to climb it first before putting the ornaments on it. Will this work? Mom suspects not.
One of many attempts
All but one foot in the tree
I finally did get in the tree but Mom didn't catch it on the camera. Darn it!
Slowly she has added a few unbreakable ornaments on it and even put some up high so she could trap me into jumping. Ha ha it didn't fall for it. Again just to get me used to the tree.
About three o'clock today while we were napping Mom put these light things on the tree and started to put decorations on it too. Our tree is mainly silver and red with hints of gold. Mom said there's only 4 breakable ornaments on the whole tree and they are up way high.
Mom will be posting pics as the Christmas season progresses. She didn't post this diary for a while hoping THE picture would be taking. It hasn't.
Well, I got to go eat, Mom made a beef stew and the smell is making me hungry.
You're so cute! Don't break the ornaments, though, ok? Parents don't like that. I know from experience ... :)
And now yous knows why daddy doesn't puts one up!!! mol!
Zoe says Mom is very stubborn about the holidays and keepsakes. Neither one you mess with.
So far so good. The really nice plastic ornaments Mom put up was Martha Stewart from Home Depot. Mom loves them, she says they look real on the tree.
WOW! Ur so lucky, Gris! Look at dat tree! 'n UR IN IT!~I'd be eatin' it 'n chewin' on it 'n really lovin' dat! Kewt pix!~ Mom got as far tonite as gettin' da box out. HA, I already got it opened up! Mom sez we should smell it 'n get used to it afore her puts it together. It's fake 'n white, so maybe I won't eat it. Mom's not in any hurry!!! I know's what u mean 'bout ur mom bein' sentimental 'bout Christmas. It was always dat way when her kid was growin' up. Dey all grown 'n gone 'n no hubby either. now jus' us kit kids! HA 'n we rule! Love's ya Gris!~
We do rule Mallee!
I thank I wrote this in another diary, but Mom wants a solid white tree to bring out to change it up every couple years. She thanks they are so beautiful.
Don't break anything and don't chew on the lights!
yeah, I was gonna say - it's the lights our Mama would be worried about. Cats + Electricity = You Don't Wanna Go There!
I'd like to see more pics, please. Gris, now be photogenic for your Mama...
Oh, a TREE! Can we have a tree, Mama?
MAMA: I've thought about it again, and the answer is still "NO WAY!"
We haven't had a tree since mom got me!! Now we really couldn't have one with Snow!! Glad you're having fun though!! Luv, Tink
This is Mom- I came home to not to worried when I opened the door and I was right not to be worried. Not one single ornament was on the ground, the lights still working and in tack. I sat down on the floor leaning my back against the coffee table, Zoe was in my lap, Diamond beside my trying to telepathically tell me to play with her, and Zach sitting on the table with his upper body perched on my shoulder. Where's Gris you might ask? At first playing with a catnip toy and them bam! He took a flying leap up the tree. He waited till I got home! I guess that's a good thing. I then grabbed him and gently pulled him out. I'm getting his favorite toy out to get some of that pent up energy out of him.
Sleeper, I take so more shots. Oh and I sense some nervousness from some of you about the lights. I am scared of fire and what it can do, I'm also afraid of electricity...being shocked a few times will do that. Anyway, the lights are only on while we are in the living room, no other time. (And if he chews while we are gone, and then I come home and turn the lights on and we get a spark, I have 4 fire ext. here and I know how to use them) Hope that makes you guys feel better. I figure there's cord's everywhere in this house Gris could chew on at anytime he wanted to, so I really don't see a difference. Plus, he's not interested in cords unless they move (IE: the computer adapter cord, or cell phone cord).
PS- just took a couple pics with my phone of Zoe butt hugging and Zach laying on my back. All I need is Gris curled up on my legs and I would have a cat blanket.
Don't break the ornaments - for some reason, people don't like that one!
Where'd those tree pics go? I just saw them last night...must have been at Zach's...
Hey, Gris! I'll have to try the flying leap trick! I was gonna climb the tree, but discovered this BIG bowl of water at the bottom, so I played in the water instead. What fun!!! Good thing Mom put a plastic tarp under the tree skirt!
I love the bowl of water! But Mom doesn't love us loving it!
She gets onto Zoe a lot for wanting to drink the water.
Oh wow Gris, your mom is brave! Anyone want to bet there will be broken ornaments before that tree is down? I would also worry about chewed wires. Perhaps cause I am no kitten and I know I would not be able to resist temptation!
Okay your right Milo, I was bad today. Mom came home and found a bell on the floor, one ornament under the sofa, one ornament under the tree along with a shiny silver reindeer. Nothing broke, remember Mom used unbreakable ornaments except for a few up high. Oh and there's a nice new low place in the side of the tree that Mom says screams Gris was in the tree. She hasn't checked the lights yet.
Mom says she's staying positive about this adventure. She believes the damage will be minimal. (She hopes LOL)
Momma Panda has spoken
(Stamps paw, and looks at Gris)
That was Ollie that said that, Gris's Mom...(and me, under my breath - snicker, snork!)
Mom- oops sorry. All I knew was remembering a orangie talking. LOL
Oh, the lights are looking fine.
You gots talking ORANGES????
Yeah and talking bananas too. You know what thy say?
Gris, Gris, bo-bris
I guess nobody wants to play the name game with me, FINE!
Mallee, Mallee, bo-ballee
Fearless, fearless bo-bearless
Beerless! Dad would say that's a bad day! MOL!
Sorry, Gris - the Papa had a meeting and was home late, so we were eating late. Now we've gotten involved in a new DVD set MI-5 which requires concentration for the accents as well as the plot! Later...
Oh Fearless, I'm sorry to bother you. Go enjoy your new box set. Mom says she hasn't seen that show yet.
Show's over. The Mama says it was pretty good! Once she got past the rather irritating menu, that is, which was VERBAL. They tell you in a British accent - which makes it even harder to understand - that you are supposed to click on the set of tapes on the desk in the image to see the episode listings, or click on the rollodex for something else, or the phone, or whatever to get to the different parts of the menu. It took the Mama a few replays to figure out what the heck they were saying! This is NOT how she wants to get mindless and watch a DVD - to be given a pop-quiz BEFORE the show starts!
The Mama's nervous about trapping two of her feral babies in the morning. More on that after the objective is achieved...
GRIS!! Banana-fana?? Well it doesn't sound like dat means I got a BIG FANA! MOL! Coz it does looks like a banana! GIGGLES! Mom sez I really long 'n skinny, but I run's faster den a jack rabbit! Oh, is dat purrty fast? Teehee! I lubbs ur name game!
Fearless, dat sounds way to complicated to me! I prob'ly fail dat pop quiz! MOL!!!
Samhain, hope it all werk's out fur da feral kitties!!!
