Autobiography of a Former Shelter Cat

Boxing Day without Boxes


As you can see from these photos, we, sadly, did not have any boxes to save to play in on Boxing Day. The disappointing truth is that Mom L ordered a glorious new artificial tree online. It arrived late but Dad P got it all set up and it  was indeed splendid. Then as they were on their last thirty minutes “fluffing” the branches, the already included tree lights went out and never came back on!!

So that tree was returned and Dad P got out our old standby, purchased over ten years ago for only $25 USD!! And that little tree is standing in my living room, without any prezzies, or  decorations but its lights are working!!

We were all still working community cat rescue and trap, neuter, return challenges right up to Christmas Eve. So not much got done for the holidays around here. But Dad P got out our stockings and Mom L hung hers and Dads on the tree. And of course, that attracted Domino as this is his very first Christmas tree!! He has already joined Katie in sampling the artificial tree leaves—ICK! But once something was hanging on that tree! Well it got his total attention!

Here he is on tippy toes checking out the inside of the tree.

Of course he doesn’t think anyone could see him!! MOL!!! Then he decided to sit back on his haunches to rethink his tree inspection strategy (aka trying to learn how those stockings were attached!).

Then he thought he outta give a look further inside the tree. And of course, he assumed no one would notice him. Can you see where his head is? Let me know in comments. He is certain you cannot see him.

Now he is ready to inspect exactly how those stockings are really hanging on this tree. So’s he sticks his head out and has a look see.

He just cannot stand it any further and must stick his head all the way out to get a really good look. Still thinkin’ no one can see what he is doing!!!

That’s how we spent our Christmas Eve. Christmas Day Mom L and Dad P went to a movie and Mom L finally got my Secret Santa Paws packages ready to mail. I am soooooooooo embarrassed that my package is going to be so very late. But, cat rescue comes first in my castle. Do you have any Christmas tree peepers in your home??

    I can’t imagine any of the folks reading your blog who DON’T agree with you that cat rescue comes first ! Looks like you all had a pretty good Christmas anyway – and made a ot of other kitties days much nicer too !

  3. I would say old standby is the perfect tree for kitties xoxo Little Miss Titch

  6. Domino thinks he is a sneaky ninja. But we all see him! What a kid.

    Love and licks,
