One of my cats, Smudge, is not exactly keen on Christmas – especially the decorations. They change her comfortable world just too much. Her favorite sports during the holidays include climbing the tree and chucking ornaments off (presumably at the other two cats, but she could be aiming at the dog or me). However, this year, I have a new chair in the livingroom with my favorite Christmas throw tossed over the back. Thankfully, Smudge has decided that if I must put up Christmas decorations, she’ll put up with them as long as she gets the chair. At least we’ve come to a sort of peace about decorations – she hasn’t taken any off of the tree in almost three days now! Score one for the Christmas throw!
