    How cute! I bet she really does love Christmas and gets excited to see the Christmas tree go up, knowing she's going to be getting lots of bows to play with. She's a pretty cat. (Oh, and she and my dog have the same name.)

    I have a feeling I'll be dealing with that too this year... and possibly fishing the same cat out of the christmas tree, she's too curious for her own good and an avid climber. Our first Christmas tree with the new kitty, so we'll see!

    Yeah, she 18-1/2 and does this every year! Thank goodness she isn't a climber.

    She is a beautiful cat, and old enough to know what she likes! Gotta love 'em.

    One year a long time ago, my cat had a litter of kittens a month or so before Christmas. Needless to say, we had to pluck a few of them from the tree more than once! We also had them climb up the screen door on the patio, and get stuck at the top :rolls eyes:
    Thank goodness my kitties now are declawed!

    My Callie pulled a bow off a package the other day. Hubby saw it and put it back before I got home from church.

    Please be very careful and watch her closely. My daughters cat got under the tree on a day when she was gone, and the huge bow untied and she ate it....all 8 ft of it. When my daughter go home, some hung from her mouth, some from her butt---(thank goodness she had the sense not to pull on it)......it took surgery to remove it---total impaction...and $800.00.

    We have a cat that does that too. I can see his eyes light up when I put up the tree. Your kitty is so pretty.

    Aren't cats great? They love to help us make sure each gift looks just right!
    I have a little girl cat who has been introduced to her first Christmas Tree this year. Not sure how that's going to be once all the ornaments are on it. Bought some bags of cat litter to weigh the tree down, so we shall see how that goes.

    And yes....PLEASE be cautious of all ribbons...been there, done that...Big Boy doesn't play with ribbons anymore. lol

    Kitties make Christmas so much more fun! Almost every Christmas photo we have of the kids opening presents includes a cat or two "helping".

    Did anyone ever put silvery icicles on their tree and have them end up in the kitty poo?

    I don't think I'm even going to try to put up a tree this year, last year my cat was only 5 mos. old and it was just more trouble than it was worth to keep re-decorating it.And I don't see how you girls can sew with one around, mine wants to be right where my hands are, he's scorched his nose twice and the other day I had to stop because he was trying to catch the needle, I give him spools and scraps of his own but it just won't do, he's got to play with what I'm playing with!

    I have one that does that too. Even worse, the two cats destroy the tree if there are any ornaments on it so we just use ribbon and silk poinsettias.

    Mine like to chew on the corners of packages.. I gave up putting anything out until Christmas morning. Something about the crunch of the box/paper that is oh so exciting. My dog used to eat tinsel all the time and that you can see when it gets stuck on its.. return. No more tinsel either. Sigh. All the good stuff and well.. worth it. i have a bowl of plastic shiny ornaments on my coffee table for them.. amazingly enough every morning at least half if not all are decorating the livingroom floor. I also hung a metal garland from my hutch for them to whack at. Keeps them from chewing on the lights and other things.

    The only thing our cat does is bat at some of the ornaments on the lower limbs. So I put out the fabric ones for him.

    Oh no, I NEVER use tinsel. We did one year and I refuse to do it again.

    Luckily my cat just chews and doesn't take it any further. She knocks some of the ornies off with her tail too, circling around the tree. LOL

    Sugar looks alot like my Puddin'...We have a new addition this year, so it will be interesting to see if we have a tree climber. The other 3 love to sleep under the tree. They don't bother the bows too much and ribbon isn't allowed...so we are ok there. I only put the non breakable ornaments on the lower branches....yes, Kathy...they drive me crazy and I couldn't make it through a single day without them.... :lol:
