Christmas Tree Climber

Last December, I got our cat Herbie from a lady who had rescued him and his siblings from a box in a mud puddle. He was such a cute kitten, a tiny little ball of fluff. He was sick at first, so we had to take him to the vet and give him medicine until he got better. Right from the start, he's been both the sweetest and the naughtiest kitty we've ever seen. Here are a couple of pictures of him climbing the Christmas tree last year, when he was a kitten.

Now that he's a grown-up cat, it was with much dismay that we discovered him climbing the tree as we were putting it up! He remembered it! Now that it's all decorated, I usually have to chase him out of the tree at least once a day, and I can't count the number of times I've had to pick up a bunch of ornaments off the floor and put them back on the tree. He just doesn't leave it alone! He's always over there, batting at all the ornaments, and he's even gotten a couple in his mouth and taken them upstairs. So we don't have to protect the tree from Kirsten, but from our naughty cat. Here he is, having the time of his life I'm sure.

  1. Too funny! Looks like he's taking Kirsten's job from her. No worries, next year you'll get a double dose. Christmas trees are always ugly with a baby in the house because all the ornaments and lights have to be halfway up the tree. Herbie is so cute! Love little balls of kitty fluff!
