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!
I’ve numbered the following photos so that you can post your own comments and captions for the corresponding pictures. I can’t wait to hear your kitty quotes!

2 “King of the tree! Oh yeah!”
