My xmas tree is up, hurray!
And my little xmas reindeers:
As always, whenever I put up the tree I remember the ornaments that didn’t make it over the years (purple glass balls I shall never forget you). Mr Puss’ first xmas with us was a bit of a nightmare of broken ornaments, so the following year I made some yarn-based ornaments so that he could have something on the tree to play with.
Does that sound even vaguely sensible?
Turns out, cats can’t distinguish yarn ornaments from any other sort, and since then we have instituted a strict ‘no cats in the tree’ policy.
Sometimes this policy is not as successful as one might wish.
