This sad little tree is taking the place of the tall nobles of Christmas’ past. There’s no fresh smell of a pine forest filling the living room this year, just this fake little thing perched on the end of the mantle.
Add bright lights, a few ornaments and it’s almost festive.
And it’s out of reach of this sweet-faced kitty who is the reason we’re not putting up a big tree this year. She would happily claw her way up a fully decorated tree, knocking off ornaments and lights until she brought the whole thing crashing down.
She’d blame the puppy.
Who chases her and eats her food, so she has a point.
