Light the Tree




Last year, we had this tower.
Only place where Christmas tree could
sit safely from Goro.

Based on experience, dear.

This year, though, tower was replaced by
a cabinet - with full access to the top.


Now the question:
Where do we put the tree?


We came up with this solution.


It's really to keep YOU safe, Goro :-)


We hope everyone enjoyed
fun & safe Christmas!

Goro

Let there be a light wherever you are!

  3. Goro sure looks to be guarding the tree all statue like there. Or trying to use his mind power to knock it over. Cassie knocked Mom's big one over once, with the help of her dog, we blame the dog more.

  8. That is a very good solution (for humans, but not so much for Goro chan). :)

    We hope your Christmas was as wonderful as you are, dear friends!

    Hugs!

  12. You mean we're supposed to bother the Christmas tree? We've been doing it wrong!

  13. You know ALL the tricks!! Your little tree is beautiful! We did not have a tree! Our kitties even eat artificial branches!! My favorite is picture 6, Goro sitting up straight beside the fireplace!

  14. It is such a beautiful tree, it would be a pity if someone would accidentally knock it over. Not you boys, of course :)

  15. Humans can really bum a cat out, can't they Goro? Hope you had a wonderful holiday, and I love the 'dual cat' photo!

  16. None of us bother the tree...much. Saku does like to play with some of the balls but mom bean made sure they are all shatterproof. So far none of us has tried to climb the tree....

    Your tree is lovely and you boys look so handsome!

  18. Well, that was a good solution even if Goro didn't think so. We love seeing you two up on your shelves. Maybe one day we can convince our humans to put up shelves for us.

  31. Dearest Tamago,
    Oh my, love that 'oh bummer' face from Goro! Their expressions are always so much fun.
    Smart solution.
    We have no Christmas tree, already since we moved to Pennsylvania, we gave all our Christmas tree things away... incl. the tree and have never set one up again.
    This year we drove to Jacksonville, FL to be at the Basilica of Immaculate Conception for a heavenly Mozart Mass, played by the Jacksonville Symphony Orchestra and choir with organ. What a feast and only a 7 min. walk from our Hyatt Regency hotel which we stayed at for only $ 90. Guess because of Christmas... We stayed 2 nights as we wanted to go to Costco, Apple Store, Trader Joe's and Whole Foods Market and on Christmas Day, nothing is open so that was for the 26th, before heading home. Now I'm down with the flu... Like last year but luckily not as sick as last year.
    Sending you hugs,
    Mariette

  33. I love seeing your totally catified house. Goro looks like he's plotting his attack of the Christmas tree.
    Wishing you a very happy and healthy new year!

  34. Oh, how Mom laughed about your post! She remembered last year's Christmas tree and thinks your family found a great solution for this year.

    Sadly, for some strange reasons, Granny doesn't have a Christmas tree anymore. She always had one, but not after we started coming for our Christmas holiday to her place. We don't understand. Is Mom eating so much that Granny can't afford a Christmas tree anymore??

  35. Encontre o caminho para um ano novo cheio de paz, fé, saúde e muita harmonia.
    Deixe para trás tudo que não deu certo e
    olhe para o futuro com esperança.

    FELIZ ANO NOVO!!!

  36. I don't even put on a Christmas tree - I just gave up. I have a Santa and a reindeer - that's all :)

  37. The Christmas tree is safe at home, the dog is well behave with the tree. But poor Rusty got his paw cut few days ago, was bleeding again this morning. Need to take him to go back to see the vet again. Your tree look nice, my is a small one like yours, maybe add some lights like yours next year. Happy New Year Tamago!

  39. hahaha, paws up, Goro!

    It reminds us of the Christmas tree without the ornaments at the bottom because puppy me-Pinot would have chewed up all. :D :D

    Happy New Year, Goro, Niko and family! Hope 2017 will bring you lots of joy, happiness and yum yum goodies!
