So for those who don't know I lost my 18 year old Siamese, Misty in september to kidney disease. After missing her like crazy for a few months I finally broke down and found 2 kittens at a shelter. Heidi is a siamese mix and is approximately 8 months though at first they thought she was 6. Cally is a calico and is 5 months. They are sweet and fun but very different in temperament- Heidi, loves treats, turkey, meat of any kind, will play fetch when she's in the mood and if I head to the kitchen she practically races me there. She is a bit skittish about being petted when she is lying down, but wil purr like crazy if I pick her up facing me and put her on my lap. Cally, has no interest in "treats like greenies etc. most cats love_ She is my little trouble maker- the first to investigate the wires behind mama's computer or tv and by now she thinks her full names is Cally NO Smile I could hang her by her feet though and she would purr. She loves to have her tummy rubbed and is the first to wake mama up- usually at 5 AM and the first to jump up for her morning tummy rub..

A few weeks ago I dared to do something that in retrospect maybe wasn't such a good idea. I put up my artificial tree. Assuming if I put it in the bedroom where they can't be unless I'm there I'd be safe.

I will let the pics below tell the story of how well THAT worked out!






So what is christmas like with your pets?

I had a dog growing up and I can't remember her doing anything crazy around the tree. We did however make her a stocking (probably was me) that we would fill with dog treats.

Sounds like you have some very active and curious kittens!

I┤m sorry for your loss! When we get attached to a little friend like that it┤s always difficult to go by a moment like that... My son lost his dog and now has a female cat, "minie", and she like a member of the family.

Have a nice weekend!

It's not even just the lights they just like climbing in and out of the tree!
