Mancat Monday: I Like Being Close to the Christmas Tree

mancat monday brian 12062021

Howdy gang, I hope you had a good weekend, we did, it was fun watching the Mom and Dad do lots of things to get ready for Christmas.  One of the things I forgot to mention is that the Dad scrubbed the carpets.  Now the carpets smell funny and we’ve all got to work hard to get them back to smelling like normal.

The Dad got most of the outside decorations up on Saturday and on Sunday he put the Christmas mural on the garage door. The Dad was happy that the weather was nice so he could get the outside things done.  It’s supposed to be wet and messy later in the week so now he doesn’t have to worry about iti.

I sure am glad that my Mom put my Ham-mick right next to the Christmas Tree, that’s sure a win, thanks Mom!  Remember, adopt cats, we deserve it!!!!! More Forever Homes More Often! Purrrrr! Zip! Later!

    WOW – nice that you can be comfy in your ham-mick close to the tree……Mom had to clear a spot for me UNDER our tree as I like to be on the skirt……it’s my favorite holiday spot!

    Hugs, Teddy

    Mom says our carpets need a scrubbing but she likes to wait for cold weather so the heat runs more and dries them faster. Enjoy your tree!

    your cot is in the purrfect spot to keep and eye on the tree, enjoy the beautiful glow, while you wait for Santa to show with a bag full of nip toys… yay for the outside done..

    I remember when I was a little girl how much I enjoyed laying beneath the tree and when I couldn’t do that any longer I liked sleeping on the sofa with the lights all aglow. It really isn’t safe to leave the lights on all night, especially when I was little. My folks used those big C7 (I think that’s right) Christmas light. The small twinkly lights eventually made it our Christmas decor in the early 70s and those cast a magical spell over beholder. I love the warmth and joy of Christmas lights to this day. I don’t reckon you ever get too old for splendor of the holiday festivities.

    Looks like mom and dad were busy this weekend. It’s good to get all the decorations done before the weather sets in. It’s supposed to rain here most of the week.

    You sure look all happy near the tree, Brian. Great shot.

    Thank you for joining the Awww Mondays Blog Hop.

    Have a fabulous Awww Monday and week. Scritches all around and my best to your peeps. ♥

    We’re glad to hear the weather cooperated so you dad could put up the decorations outside. You sure look content to be napping on your hammock by your beautiful tree.

    Lulu: “What a pretty tree! I wonder why we never have one.”
    Charlee: “I would totally be at the top of that Christmas tree.”
    Chaplin: “Not if I got there first.”
    Lulu: “Oh, right, that’s why.”

    You look precious near the tree. 😀 And I’m glad your dad got things done. Today my outdoor decorations are getting blown around something fierce and my grapevine reindeer fell over. ~sigh~ Oh, well. Best wishes!

    I’m very happy to hear you are not trying to climb that Christmas tree! That would be disastrous! Your ham-mick looks super comfy.

    Your tree looks lovely. Pop is decorating as I type this. TW did the dusting over the weekend and this coming weekend, Fraser comes to town. Hohoho!—or isn’t that the noise trees make?

    Guess you were busy supervising all the work being done. Good thing you have that comfy hammock to rest in. Even better that it is near the Christmas tree.

    We see you don’t even wanna lay on that nast smelling washed carpet, Brian. Y’all need to get busy making it smell normal again! Our Dad refuses to put up decorations anywhere, so we just have what mom does inside. XOX Lucy, Xena, and Chia

    Our Mom did lots of the outside stuff early too. And she has been working on trees the past couple of days. Lots more to be done. Misty likes to sleep near the tree too. Timber is more interested in what is hanging there. And Lightning could care less:)

    There’s always something about a lighted Christmas tree that draws kitties in. It’s relaxing, right Brian? And I love your hammock, too. Just the right size. Hugs to efurryone!

    Brian, you look terrific next to the tree! We watched our Mom fluff the tree on Saturday and then she decorated it yesterday. We all checked the tree out on Saturday, but we have left it alone since. I, Marv, have not been caught under the tree (or trying to climb it!) Mom left the cat tree right beside it and I have been sitting on the top of that and staring at the tree.
