We don’t usually bother much with Christmas, and we haven’t had a tree for years. This year though, we’ve bought a small tree as we thought the cats might enjoy it. And we, of course, enjoy watching the cats enjoy things.
Frodo seemed quite interested in it when we were setting it up and got stuck right into helping us.
He also liked chasing after the shatterproof baubles after Sammie pulled the box over, making them all fall out of it. Eventually we got the tree assembled and dressed with the baubles and some tinsel. Frodo took up position beneath it, just to keep an eye on it.
Then I got around to wrapping their presents. There were more than I expected when I got them all out of the bag, where we’d been storing them as we added to the pile. I think we may have got a bit carried away…
The wibbly, wobbly mini tree was going to be wrapped, but I thought it might be easier to just let them have it. I put several of the smaller presents into the tree. Some were done as mini crackers. One of the cats obviously approved of that idea and decided to open one early.
Sammie may have a guilty face in this photo, but we’re pretty sure that it was Frodo who made the mess. Not that it’s a problem, as we’d expected something like this and it is all for the cats anyway. Frodo is very fond of ripping paper up so I’m thinking he had a grand old time with that.
There may be more photos to come, especially when we help them to open any presents that may be still intact on Christmas day.
