Reggie is on Santa's Naughty List

December 24, 2016
 On the 19th, my husband had to travel several states away to finalize some stuff for his new job, and was gone from about 7:30am to .... I'm not sure, I was asleep. But anyway, Reggie could tell something was going on, and then when Husband left so early, he got upset. While most of the day involved a lot more cuddles and lap sitting than normal, by the time evening came, the kitty madness had descended on him.

Two days later he decided to move into the Christmas tree, and kept climbing it no matter how many times we pulled him out of it. He knocked down ornaments and batted them around the room, even next to the scary vacuum. Over the next few days, I found ornaments hidden between boxes and under the table, and I have no doubt I'll be finding them for weeks to come.

+ Biting


+ Climbing in the Christmas Tree

+ Knocking down and Chasing Ornaments

+ Helping himself to human food
+ Untying Shoelaces
+ Destroying Sweaters (and now the sleeves are all wet)
+ Pulling Tinsel down from the tree
+ Trying to smother us in our sleep
+ Deciding Husband's face was the ideal location to deal with a hairball in the middle of the night (disaster was averted)
+ Sprawling in the middle of our tiny, tiny kitchen when there are hot things in transit, and bopping our ankles as we walk by
+ Becoming extremely wiggly when it's time for medicine, and then knocking it over and chasing it
+ General mischief and chewing on things


Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, and my the season be merry and bright for everything you celebrate!

PS, This list of Pet Proof Christmas Trees made me laugh and some are quite beautiful.


  1. That's really cute. Cats are so funny. How old is he?

    1. We're actually not completely sure, he was a stray up until about two months ago. The vet thinks between 3 and 5 years, but he's so playful and energetic we thought he was younger at first.

  7. Reggie looks rather smug and proud of his achievements, like he's expecting a gold star. 😸 Cats are hilarious! Merry Christmas from the Chirpy Cats 💕

  8. Ah, the tree battle. I chose not to fight it this year, as I knew kitten Fergus would be much too tempted to take it down. So we had a much more peaceful holiday as a result! A little less colorful, but way less stress.

  10. All of us have been super naughty the past few days. Mom says it always happens every Christmas. She says she doesn't know what it's all about. It seems as if Reggie is really keeping you attentive to him, which we suspect is his entire motivation. Thanks so much for joining our blog hop. Meowy Christmas!
