Winner of the 2012 Christmas Tree War

Back in early December, I blogged about the war between my cat and I over the Christmas tree. I couldn't keep water in the tree stand because he would drink it. I would find ornaments on the floor. The garland looked like it had been thrown on the tree by a two-year-old.

I flew the white flag of surrender, and today, I took down the tree.

After taking all the ornaments, lights, and garland off, this is what ended up on the ground:

An extremely dry Christmas tree
This tree was so dry. Luckily, I did not plug up my vacuum cleaner when I vacuumed them all up. Yes, I tried to keep water in the tree stand, but Slick always managed to drink it all. And it hasn't affected him in the least. In fact, I think he's crazier than usual.

So...I hereby declare Slick the winner of the 2012 Christmas Tree War. He looks quite proud of himself, doesn't he?

  4. That's how our tree skirt will look as soon as my husband gets the tree out, hee hee. Ornaments were packed yesterday, just need to take the lights off, then it's his responsibility. Your kitty does look pleased with himself, almost as if seeking another task! :)))

    1. I had to laugh today - my husband put his hands in his coat pockets and something was poking him. He pulled out a needle from the tree. LOL! Those things were everywhere!
