Amusing feline activity here yesterday! My daughter is home from college, so we went to get our Christmas tree. There wasn't much left on the lot, so we opted for short and fat over tall and skinny. When we got it home, I took it out of the car, but left it outside the door until I got things situated inside. We had to move furniture to get a low table in front of the bay window to put it on, then several trips up and down the attic stairs to take up clutter and bring down Christmas decorations. Dexter had never been up to the attic before and he found it fascinating! That's good news because I'm hoping he can go hide up there when my son is home. He has bad allergies and doesn't like cats to be near him so will hiss and even move then away with his foot. Anyway - while Dexter was exploring the attic, we got the tree up, lights on, decorations, the whole nine yards. Oh, I wish I had had my camera ready when Dexter came downstairs and was confronted by a lit tree in his living room! He was stupified. Next thing I hear my daughter saying, "Mom, the tree is shaking." Luckily he wasn't climbing it, just jumping onto the low, wooden, folding table, then to the bay window ledge, then under the table behind the cloth draped over it, then back on the table... you get the idea. Minerva got in on the action and they're both hopping up and down from the different levels making the tree shake. Eventually Dexter settled on the table under the tree with Minerva on the floor below him.
Do I dare put wrapped presents underneath?
