how to destroy a christmas tree
punch was a bad cat today - he tried to paw one of the ornaments, and got squirted with the water gun. however, it did look like fun, so i think i will wait until later, when the people are gone, to have some fun destroying their hard work in decorating it.
note to myself: don't look directly at the christmas lights. they are bright and flashy, and if i stare too long, my vision starts getting weird and blurry. but i do enjoy the nice festive light they give off. eric spent part of the evening watching football, and i faithfully sat on the couch with him. we had some fun playing with my spongy play balls - he threw it across the room, and i would pick it up in my mouth and bring it back for another try.
at one point i was playing with it, and got it stuck on my claw. it wouldn't come loose, and finally i had to whack my paw against the side of the couch to dislodge the ball. it went flying across the room at that point, so i scampered after it. i was a sleepy cat after all that, so i went back to the couch to watch the tree and fall asleep. it's late now, so maybe i'll go and paw at the tree for a while. the lights are off for the night, so it's probably safe to try and climb it. that would be really cool!
