The Nightmare Before Christmas

This photo should strike fear in the hearts of all cat owners this Christmas.

This is my friends' cat, Blaze. A Christmas tree killed his uncle.

I have 6 cats. I have no Christmas trees. Coincidence? I think not.

I can't imagine being without a Christmas tree or my cats. Fortunately for me, Polly has never been a problem with the tree and Francis only seems mildly amused by it.

I got a tree a few years ago ... right after getting Bogie, the world's most recklessly rambunctious kitten ... I didn't see what happened but Bogie must have run into it because the poor little guy's eye was red and puffy for weeks. Either that or Rummy (the other rambunctious kitten) scratched him but good. I think it was the tree.

Still, I wish that I could get one this year but since I'm living alone and no one is likely to see it, I'm not sure that there's any point.

I'm not sure how to spell the sound I just made so I will just tell you that I just let out a horrified gasp. No point to a Christmas tree? Here's the point to having a Christmas tree, living alone (which I am now doing for the first time EVER,) or not: it is pretty and it makes you feel good. Who cares if no one else will see it. You will see it. So do it for yourself. Most of the time, I think life is about making other people happy, but if you are not happy yourself, you will not have anything to pass along.

So, by God man, put up a tree, hose it down with bitter apple, and hope for the best.
