Newton let his older brother show off all of the boring stuff about decorating the tree, now it is his turn to highlight his talents.
Smell and taste testing are perhaps the most forgotten thing in the hustle and bustle of the holidays, but leave that to Newton. These two pass the test. They can stay on the tree.
Next up, finding the most comfortable (yet cute) spot under the tree to elicit the best response from your people. Once you find it, use it often. Check!

Oops! It looks like he found a suspicious ornament! His spot is so great he doesn’t even have to get up to investigate. Inspector N is always on duty!
He must thoroughly check this object. What if a ninja cat snuck in and replaced the ornament that Pierre put on yesterday with a perfect duplicate? It happens all the time, somewhere. Maybe.
Not convinced of the authenticity of this ornament, Newton decides this one can’t stay on the tree. It’s for the safety of the entire family.
