Smile Started Christmas display and cats are excited

I noticed that the neighbors are all starting to decorate for Christmas early this year.
It’s always been the day after Thanksgiving for me, but since we are having dinner at our daughter’s home, we decided to start the Christmas tree display early too.

The tree display is huge and takes a week to set up unless I make changes. I have it razed up off the floor and it provides a maze underneath for the cats to play. This year I may have to close it off to them, because my Squirts loves to chew on the wires and I’m afraid of what could happen. She is just one lucky cat I just don’t understand how she’s been spared from electrocution from this habit.

I wish I knew how to keep squirts from chewing on the wires. The cats really love playing under there and it preoccupies them enough that they don’t go on top as much.

I have 3 cans of SSSCAT to keep them off the top, but they still get by then the can will go off after they’re on top and then they usually damage things as they flee.

Anyway I brought everything inside yesterday, but I’m just not into it like I used to be without a house full of kids. I wonder if I can rent some for Christmas. LOL

I can't wait to put our Christmas tree! Winston and Nyska are pretty good about staying away from the tree. The thing they really get into is the presents, specially the ones with ribbons.

Thanks, I turned the platform on its side and fastened all the wires up to the plywood so nothing is hanging down. I spent most of the day trying to figure out where each light is going to be for the Christmas Village. Iím not sure yet but tomorrow I may cover the wires with an old sheet or something.

My cat loooves hanging out beneath the Christmas tree. Just put mine out yesterday, and this year I've got an artificial one which doesn't have as much hang-out-space beneath it as my prior ones did, so she looked a little disappointed yesterday when she first checked it out.

A few years ago I bought a narrow tree that was on clearance at Sears. I was look for something small in the family room so I could have something to look at while Iím on the computer or watching TV. I didnít have a lot of space so I got the skinniest tree I could find. The cats arenít too interested in it.

I thought I had a photo of it but I guess Iíll have to wait until itís up this year.

Default Squirts canít wait

She is still waiting for the tree and just doesn’t understand that I have a lot to do yet before the tree goes up, but I can tell She knows its Christmas.

Wow, that's quite an impressive display!

The pic of your cats snuggled under the tree is so cute. Maybe it's the warmth of the lights; my cats love to sit under there too:
