Can you spot the live cat ornament in the tree?
Yeah, that's our 8 month old kitten Tiggher. She found the Christmas tree and has decided that it's her new play toy. We've tried everything to discourage her. Spraying her with water until she looks like a drowned rat. Putting tinfoil around the trunk. Spraying the tree with that citric stuff that's supposed to keep cats from chewing. Tiggher thinks it's catnip. Other than the suggestion of putting a shock collar on the cat to keep her out of the tree (which is NOT an option) we are out of options. So the tree will come down today. Replaced by a two foot tree. With no ornaments. With lights somehow secured in place. Don't worry about the tree falling over...Mr. L put about 75 pounds of buckshot in bags on the base of the big tree to keep it steady, I think it will work on the two footer.
This weekend will be a challenge...to figure out just what of our holiday decorations can be put up around the house that Tiggher will not decide to confiscate as her own (like my toothbrush which she decided was a new chew toy). And before you say "should have gotten a dog" please realize that Tiggher knows how to play fetch and the command "sit". It's the "No Tiggher, leave that alone" command she hasn't mastered yet.
