Lyn Asks the December Question
Now for Decembers question. I hope you aren’t bored by the saga of my two little kitty brothers, but they have definitely impacted our Christmas plans. I told my husband we don’t dare have a Christmas tree this year. They are climbers! Fortunately I have a small ceramic tree that lights up and that will have to do this Christmas. When I was a child, one of our cats decided that when the house was quiet and we were all asleep it was his chance—
TO CLIMB THE CHRISTMAS TREE.
He did it three nights in a row, tumbling the tree and crashing all the glass ornaments. The next morning my mother twisted a cup hook into the wall and tied a slender rope which she secured to the cuphook and the tree trunk. Problem solved; the cat continued to climb the tree but without incident. I don’t think this would work with our little boys since they would want to tear every ornament off and chew it around, chase it, throw it in the air and lose it. So do you have a pet Christmas story,? Please share yours. I will choose a few commenters and offer them a free ebook. I love animal stories!-Lyn
