I finally got the tree up and decorated. We decided that a smaller tree in a different location might be better this year. It worked out beautifully. No moving furniture and I just carried it into the house.
The cats were intrigued. After I decorated, Jack knocked down a coupla balls, but he prefers just sitting under it and Pippi swipes to no effect from her perch (it’s just an inch or two outta reach.)
This is one fully-loaded tree! Birds, squirrels, raccoons, beavers, herons, Cardinals, butterflies, gulls, crows, owls, hummingbirds, orioles, pine cones, boats, angels and Santa, of course. It’s pretty darn cute. And I left half of my ornaments in the basement, ha.
My mantle scarf has tassels which I can imagine will tempt little kitties to bat and snatch…bringing down all kinds of Kristmas. So I just put greens there. I’ll see what I can do to fancy it up.
