Furry Festivities

Purrs.  Hi!  I'm back with an update from this insane existence with the worse humans in the entire world. 

They put up this stick with green itchy stuff and threatened me with scalping if I go near it.  This thing is disturbing.  I've never seen anything like it before.

Ahem, Oreo, it's a Christmas tree and it was put up last year, too.

What?  Really?  I don't remember that.  Anyway, the other day I jumped on it's root and it's cover fell off making all sorts of racket and little toys crashed to the ground.  I went upstairs to think about my next step in its destruction.

You silly thing. You jumped on the table and the tree tickled you.  You were scared poopless and when you jumped down, you pulled the tree skirt with you and several ornaments fell on the floor.  The humans said you ran away like a scaredy cat.  They were sorry that they placed their tree on the table that once contained your sleeping tray.

My magic food bowl broke.  Now I have to rely on the female upright beast with opposable thumbs to dispense my food.  She's not very automatic.  I have to wake her with my paw in the mornings to tell her that I'm starving.

Oreo, your paw is about to get you ousted from the warm bed.

I'm too cute and furry.  I'll never be ousted.  Hee Hee.

At least my furry friends have a tree this year (and I can still get to my window spot):

And I can see this from one of my thrones.  It looks like my squirrel friends may have conspired and assembled this crazy menagerie:

The female says that it never snows around here so all the snow decorations are silly.  This morning she was trying to show me what snow is.   I ignored her.  I was busy staring out the window looking at something white dusting the ground, wondering if that white stuff is edible.

Ah, I'd better sign off.  My warm lap is on it's way to the couch.  I'm ready for my long snooze.

Like most cats, Oreo doesn't get it. I don't know why you keep that crazy cat, Reffie.

Nice bear collection!

Seriously, it snowed? Lovely photos as usual. I can't help but notice the absence of ET from the post. Will I be hearing about this on the news?

Rob-bear said...

Yes, otin; WONDERFUL Bear collection. (I meant to say that earlier; you can see my head isn't working right! I should be hibernating instead of commenting.)

@Rob-bear - Yes, Kitty is clueless. He doesn't know how good he has it! As for the bears, they get to hibernate all year and wake-up for just a few weeks. What a life!

@otin - Thanks! I have a few too many, I'm sure.

@Lauren - That WAS ET responding to Oreo Kitty. Maybe she finally took one of the "happy" pills I gave her.

Suzanne said...

I'll send you some of the white stuff when it starts coming down. Better yet come over with a shovel and you can take all you want!

Cheryl said...

You put the tree on the table where Oreo's bed was?! I'm guessing if your lap wasn't so warm you'd have one angry cat on your hands. Or not. Cats are as fickle as teenagers.

I don't know what it is about cats and Christmas trees. LOL.

Happy Holidays!

leeuna said...

Haha, Poor Oreo. You have him so confused with the tree in the house. We had to put ours in a corner on a high shelf so our cats wouldn't think it was their new exercise toy.

Are you getting snow?

ReformingGeek said...

@Sue - Please keep your white stuff to yourself. We don't have snowplows down here!

@Cheryl - But he hadn't slept in his little tray in forever! :)

@Constant - Maybe there are monsters in the tree? Happy Holidays to you, too!

@leeuna - Yeah, poor baby, so mistreated. No snow here. Too warm!

Unknown said...

Super cute post. Does he need his own tree?

You know sometimes I wish I were Oreo. He is one lucky cat!


Unknown said...

Silly cats! Always getting into trouble. Gotta love 'em...(((HUGS)))

Unknown said...

Happy New Year! Hope you and hubby have a fantabulous year! And yeah, even ET and cat. said...

Uh... sorry I'm late to the party. It's Evil Twin's fault. She kept making me watch television instead of reading. It's always her fault. Please tell her to stop visiting!

Happy New Year!

Oreo if you want to sample snow come visit. Winter weather has finally come back to AR. Phoenix likes to shake it off the screened porch. Lenny, Togo and Dixie are convinced she is insane for getting her paws wet.
