You know how cats are always interested in what’s new and different? All you have to do is put a paper bag on the floor, or move a chair away from the table, and the next thing you know the cat is right there in it or on it!
The crowning event of new things has to be the arrival of the Christmas tree each year – not only does it provide an irresistible hiding place, but there is a lot of “low hanging fruit” in the form of ornaments to bat off and play with. We always have to think carefully about which ones we put on the lower branches!
Ziggy, our card making assistant, always attends classes when friends come over to stamp, and offers help when needed.
Egypt, however, isn’t much help at all; I actually caught her up on the fireplace mantle the other day, weaving in and out between the cards in her quest to reach the vase of bittersweet. Busted! (The kitty, not the vase.)
Egypt is our smallest and most curious cat; it’s no surprise that she was also seen lurking in this picture of the Christmas tree, no doubt waiting to play with something pretty while my back is turned:
Here’s wishing you and all of your furry friends a very Merry Christmas!
