Hi there my furriends! Yes, I am inside the house. It's been raining and muddy and icky and I am a smart cat. I know that this time of year, parts of the garden come inside. It's a special time of year when you get a whole decorated tree...to smell to appreciate.
Even I, Jonesie The Good, have been caught playfully whapping at the ornaments.
By the fire, I'm joined by my family. Cory and Figaro can barely keep their eyes open...yet I, the good garden cat keep a watchful eye on the fire. Yes...it may be gas...there are no real flames, but my services are still required.
The tree glows warmly at night. We do our best to move the tree skirt around as much as possible to gently remind our mom and dad to put the presents under there.
Some of our favorite ornaments are making their annual appearance. The little kitten ornament is Madison's ornament. It doesn't really look like him, but it says "Kitten's First Christmas 1996". We know our sweet Madison was a kitten the Christmas of 1996, so it belongs to him. The rest of us don't have official ornaments. Only our stockings.
Our Mr. Moose ornament reminds mom of a trip to Maine in August of 2001. She was driving through the night (dad too) with a friend from Montreal to Maine. They drove through the night and somewhere in New Hampshire...all bleary eyed at 3am they stopped at a 24 hour convenience store. They talked to the clerk and discussed how we had not seen any moose. The clerk mentioned they are hard to see at night "because they have that non-reflective fur, you know".
For some reason this started a giggling fit that hasn't stopped for 11 years. Every time mom hangs the ornament on the tree we call it the non-reflective ornament. Every time moose's are discussed in our house...you get the idea.
Well, time to get back to guarding the fireplace and waiting for Santa Paws.
Non reflective fur huh? The woman saw a moose once. It was a Mama moose with a baby. She was skiing down the bunny slope at Jackson Hole and there was this treed area in between two ski runs and Mama and baby were nibbling there. It was so cool!
Hee-hee, that tickled our funny bone! What great memories your ornaments hold. You have a very important job of protecting that tree, Jonesie. Stay warm and enjoy the fire. Happy Thursday!
We wish we could come over for a visit as your house and your tree look so lovely!
Ay yes, "non-reflective fur".......
I love your tree, Jonesie - and, yeah, those ornaments look totally whappable!
Pawsome Christmastree you have !
Here in Sweden the Moose don´t have any reflective fur either ;-)
I have set up tent for a kitty high tea if you would like to join me in my lilac garden.
Such a great warm place you have!!!

Oh, Jonesie! You hit my soft spot. I've been collecting moose ornament s for years! LOVE.
Have a lovely day, everybuddy!
We love the moose ornament. Mommy is having a giggling fit over the non-reflective fur.
You tree is very pretty, Jonesie. We've got a moose ornament like yours...now the mom is gonna laugh every time she looks at it...thinking about that non-reflective fur. :)
We used to live in Maine. In our experience, you really don't see the moose until it's coming through the windshield!
Beautiful tree and beautiful kitties,too!
The are wonderful photos. The coziness by the fire, the tree...everything.
Loved the moose ornament story.
Ooo you guys all look so warm!
Non reflective fur... hee hee, arent some kitties like that, cant see them in the dark!
Everything sure looks pretty and that fire looks so cozy!
It looks lovely and cosy in your home with your fire and pretty tree.
Oh Wow! We thought one of you kitties was sitting on the top of the tree somehow!
And, Jonsie The Good, its OK to whap at ornaments. Gently...
Great job as always, lovely Jonesie...Wishing you guys a wonderful holiday weekend, precious friends...xoxo...J, Calle, Halle, Sukki, Mommy Cat, Daddy Cat
