I found inspiration for tonight’s card on Toni’s blog. She commented about her kittens knocking ornaments off the tree. Fortunately, neither Cali nor Chester have ever paid too much attention to the Christmas trees (well, except for Ches loving to sit under it). When we lived in apartments, we had a 3′ tall artificial tree and they’d sniff it out (like all new things) and then go about their usual daily activities. I worried a tad bit the first Christmas in our house what they would do with a real tree. About the same it turns out – sniff it and then move along. This year we did catch Cali sitting on the loveseat armrest pawing at an ornament after we finished decorating it. I figured since she had seen us “playing” with them earlier in the evening, she thought it must be ok.
Since then, they have left the ornaments alone. Well, we think. About 2 days ago we found Cali’s ornament on the floor. I intentionally put the less delicate ones down low just in case. Honestly, I don’t think they were batting at it. I think Chester bumped it while heading under the tree for a nap. I’ve witnessed him brushing the lower branches with his back as he heads to his current napping spot. But the truth remains a mystery and the ornament still sits on the floor in front of the tree:Supplies: Daisy Hill rub-on; misc. red cardstock; Uniball Signo white pen.
