She: Are you working on a new post?
We: Working on some pictures, pictures.
She: New ones?
We: Yes. Tree undecorating ones.
She: Melancholy or "YES!!!!!" ?
She: Good. I'm sure the cats showed their usual interest in the boxes.
We: Tuck sporting the lights . . . Baby attacking one of the felt ornaments with tooth and claw . . .
She: Will you save the lights, then pitch them next year, and buy new ones?
We: Yes. Any that don't light up when I plug them in are out of here.
She: Natch. We don't have any time for the "three strikes and you're out" rule.
Where we see people taking down ornaments at the end of the Christmas season, cats see playing opportunities [They always do]. We taunted the Babe with one of our hand-sewn felt bunnies.
Following the feline imperative that is his birthright, Baby goes for the jugular. Do felt ornaments have jugulars? Do cats dream of electric felt rabbits?
