Cupcake: What is THIS?
Newton: You really want to stay out of the way of that, kid. Just get on the cat tree and let the humans do their thing.
Cupcake: But Mr. Newton, they’re putting a thing in the house that looks like a tree. I’ve seen real trees, and this smells wrong.
Cupcake: It also tastes wrong.
Cupcake: And look at these things! The humans are putting things on the tree, but they keep saying “Not that one, it’s breakable.”
Ashton: Do you think we will get blamed when she knocks it over?
Pierre: Not if we’re sitting over here, we won’t.
Cupcake: This is going to be so much fun!
This is Cupcake’s first holiday season, and her first tree. We have a tradition of a tree going up just after Thanksgiving and being put away the day after Christmas, so with the early Thanksgiving holiday this year, she has a little extra time for kitten mayhem. As with most everything else in the house, the other cats really are giving her a little extra room so when she gets into trouble, there won’t be any doubt whose fault it is.
We will keep you posted whether she manages to topple the tree before the holiday.
