Argh! Dec 19, 2007

Between that and trying to keep the ornaments on the tree, Christmas is pretty much the one time of year I wish I didn't have cats!! Thankfully the young one has mellowed out since last year, so things will hopefully be a bit quieter this year... (knocks on wood...)

Been there too Dec 20, 2007

An interesting variante is to (try to) wallpaper a big room with a cat assistant.
Especially when the paper is natural rice straw paper ... cats adore it !

This is the first year that Tindaro (now aged 14) hasn't played football with the tree baubles all night. Believe me Jen, it may drive you nuts when they do it but you'll be sad when old age creeps up and they stop.

I love our "babies" too. They haven't reached anywhere near old age thankfully. And yes, they are involved in every activity, particularly anything involving wire or string. Quite scary sometimes as you worry they'll get hurt.
