Bells and Stockings and Shnookums
"Fluffy, Mommy loooooooooves Christmas! And it takes a long time to decorate the house, so I might as well get it done earlier and then I can enjoy it for longer!"
"But Mom, next door still had their pumpkins out and you already hung up the Christmas lights!"
"Well I can't help it if they are 'late' taking down their Halloween decorations..."
Mom and Dad brought us up to play in the living room - unfortunately that also included Mom putting the dreaded "Bell Collar" on me. See in the picture? That's me sulking with Binks under the end table. You can just make out the red and white collar with the gold bells as I had my head shrunken into my body in a serious pose of disapproval. Every time I moved, those stinking bells would ring! Even Binks did her best trying to pull them off of me - finally Mom got her stupid picture and I got to take them off. THUMP.
I got to work chinning everything under the tree. Then I was busy chinning all of the branches I could reach - sheesh, what a job! But it's done, so I declare everything under the tree to be MINE. I even chinned Shnookums. He wasn't too pleased, but then again, I'd rather have him on my side than not on my side. Perhaps I need to distract him with a treat and then check out my stocking! It's worth a try!
