Cats will be cats. It really doesn’t matter that I posted a lovely blog outlining the brilliant ways to keep cats safe during the holidays, and especially how to keep them out of trees. I was feeling rather smug that my cats are so well behaved and “trained” only to find Ms. Boo about halfway up my 9′ tree!
So this is a tribute to catitude, specifically Christmas catitude. Ignoring my admonitions to stay out of the the Christmas decor is not advised but, to my knowledge, none of the cats in these random photos were harmed because of their misadventures. Enjoy! Continue reading →

Hairless cats will also appreciate a layer of warmth. Smaller breeds like Chihuahuas and Yorkshire Terriers especially need insulation from the cold. This may include indoor clothing as well.

I have been wanting a new Christmas tree for years to better fill my front room’s high ceilings. Last year, I simply made do by putting my shorter tree on a table. This year, with the addition of two cats to the family, I had visions of them trying to climb up the tree skirt dangling over the makeshift table to get to the ornamental enticements.
