I may or may not have mentioned earlier here that our two newest cats were enjoying our Christmas tree so much that they were actually climbing INTO it.

May I offer for your edification and amusement, Exhibit A:

Felaine, I enjoy the stories of Mr. T.  Too bad he went blind.

Comment by sk8eycat on December 26, 2014 at 1:25am

Actually, I usually called him "The Devil" to gross out my fundie mother and JW sister.  But he did tend to behave  like a Tasmanian Devil when he was young.  Till he discovered the delights of sleeping under the xmas tree. 

He really lived under the tree(s) till we had to take them down every year.  He was like a kid camping out in a forest, looking at the lights (stars?) through the branches.  Till he became blind....

Mr. T looks great!

I have missed Mr. Devil since the 1980s...he used to sleep in my arms when I was feeling blue (so many of my friends were dying of AIDS then), and purred like a motorboat.

I'm sure everyone in here is familiar with the quote: Thousands of years ago, cats were worshiped as gods.  Cats have never forgotten that.

Comment by Grinning Cat on December 25, 2014 at 12:57pm

Great picture of Mr. T! Every cat is indeed a god unto himself or herself.

Comment by Plinius on December 25, 2014 at 12:43pm

Yes, cats have fantastic shit detectors!

Chris, I was cat-sitting for a friend in 1993 when the "Jingle Cats" tape first came out...and I was playing it and laughing.  The youngest of the three cats  haired up, backed away from the speaker, and hissed at it.

Wish I'd had my old SLR camera with me that time.  (No such thing as a digital snapshot camera then.)

Mr. T. (for Tasmanian) Devil in his favorite spot:

Poor Patricia! Having to catsit, how horrible!

Spud, cats know sounds even from a speaker and some sounds are irresistible. When my Poeka and MauMau were kittens (long ago, they're playing catfish in the North Sea now) I liked to play a CD with jungle sounds. They tried to rip the cloth from the speakers to get at the birds they heard. Husband didn't like the torn speakers, so I decided to desensitize the cats by playing the CD very often. After some time they told each other:"Don't pay attention, she's at it again!"

Other sounds... many are ignored because they're not important to the cats. Sometimes they get enthousiastic from classical music and one time I saw husband and Dido dancing to rock music. I don't know what made Dido dance, the friendship or the music.
