Well, due to mostly well behaved cats, we haven't had any problems with them around the Christmas tree. Certainly a few ornaments hanging close to the floor was knocked off occationally, but that was it.
As you may have guessed by now, that changed last night.
Easily bored, the youngest cat-- Kallisto went downstairs from my room, obviously finding that we hadn't closed one of the doors to the room where we have the tree properly.
Having not quite fallen asleep by that time, I here these suspicious sounds from downstairs. Upon going to investigate, I find first a very innocent looking cat, and then of-course a downed tree. Only one ornament fell victim to the little beast's nightly adventure, though the poor tree still bears the marks of the upsetting experience.
