A Different Way to Decorate For Christmas

So we set up the tree as usual and someone was very curious. This would be the indication of things to come.

He looked around and all through it. He peeked from behind it. Oh, the things he would do to this green growth in his living room.

The family was jolly and filled with Christmas cheer as the four legged critter lurked in the rear.

Little Matt got in on the fun investigating the lighted house he thought could be home.

This ladder is mine too, said Jack as he glared.

I'll get you back for this he sneared.

Some more jolly folks posing in front of their tree while Jack was conspiring to wipe out that green debris.

A few days later this was the scene while Jack sat back looking so serene.

For the next several hours there it did lean. Jack thought,"You people aren't serious about this tree thing." If so I've got news for you, while you're not looking...

This is what I'll do.

Take that you grren monster in all your decor, if it's up to me you'll be out the door.

Dad came to the rescue and took the tree all apart and restrung the lights and re-decorated it...

While Jack looked on again. Now what are you thinking, Jack?

The tree is still standing this time. Jack has removed a few decorations, but has left the tree alone for the most part.

Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night.


  1. That's so funny! We had cats that used to climb our tree, too. We ended up having to spray a perimeter of pet repellent around it.

  2. This is a great and funny Christmas post/story!
    As you have labeled him, King of the House, so he is!

  3. Oh my!!! We had a cat at work that did that. He'd climb all up inside... and under... and around... and thru.

    The tree set right in front of my desk, so I got to watch him play in it all day. Luckily he never once sent it toppling over. =0)

  4. This was so cute!!! I used to have a cat and she always loved getting into the Christmas tree too. This brought back some of those memories. Thanks for sharing this.

  5. What a cute rhyme! Hope you have a very Merry Christmas ♥

  6. Oh that is too funny! Our cats show an interest in the tree every year. But they have never knocked it down. Thank goodness!

  7. Hi, Nannette~

    ROFLOL! I so know how you feel. Our cat does the same thing. I have a great pic of Kitty staring out at me through the branches!



  8. How funny! The New Grinch is Jack the Cat - we have pictures of our cats sleeping in the tree, but never has one knocked on down! Isn't it great to have a Knight in Shining Armor save the day!
