MEMORIES ARE MADE OF THIS
This photo was taken in 2008 as I was in the process of taking down my big Christmas tree, which I hadn't been able to decorate for several years. So this was my cat's first introduction to glitter and fluffy stuff, and while I thought she might pull tinsel off the tree, she never bothered anything. But she delighted in curling up UNDER the tree (see below). During the undecorating process, I was placing ornaments on the table and Charlee was watching the whole process very intently. Knowing she can't resist anything new and soft to lie on, I folded some of the white cotton padding on the floor while I was working, and she immediately curled up on it.
Later, nearly done, I put that folded cotton on the dining room table along with some decorations I still needed to put away. I was out of the room for awhile, and when I came back in, there she was—curled up on it and refusing to look at me.
Now you need to understand that when I brought Charlee home from the Humane Society, I had trained her to stay off the dining room table and other places I didn't want her to jump on, and she was very good about minding me. Until this particular day when I put "her" piece of cotton paddingon the table. Any cat owner will understand the silent message she sent me with the look I captured in the above photo. It very clearly said:
I had a good laugh that day and figured I couldn't argue with this kind of cat logic. So I posed a few of the remaining ornaments on the table and snapped this picture for my collection of Charlee pics, and I hope it makes you smile.
May your Christmases always be filled with blessings
