    Beatrix! How did you get out again? Haven’t you learned your lesson about that? Remember, the only tree you should be climbing is inside – and I mean a cat tree, not your Woman’s Christmas tree.

    I love every last little detail! The table top tree on the anchor desk looks very much like the ceramic one my mom made. That final panel is everything! We even get to see Pucky toe beans. Too bad Beatrix couldn’t snuggle in with them, but I’m sure she and Trevor will find a Vegas fir to snuggle up under. (Did I just end a sentence with two prepositions!)

    This is gorgeous, but I had always understood that napping season was 1 January to 31 December between the hours of 5am and 1am daily, the remaining four hours being reserved for zooming.

    Traditional: Still, Still Still

    Still, still, still

    Underneath the Vegas Tree

    Four napping kitties are quietly sleeping

    Elvis in his tiny box is dreaming

    Still, still, still

    Underneath the Vegas Tree.

    …….

    Dream, dream, dream

    Of the meals of ham to come

    Puck and Buzzy sleep by the presents

    Goldie dreaming of mysterious events

    Dream, dream, dream

    If the meals of ham to come!

    …….

    Pounce, pounce, pounce,

    Lupin is ready at any time

    Though sleeping deeply

    At any moment

    He can awaken

    And trouble foment

    Pounce, pounce, pounce,

    Lupin is ready at anytime!

    A Christmas Carol is my all time favorite. I have a very old copy (early 20th century) that I picked up in a shop in Woodstock, NY that has wonderful illustrations.

    I wonder if this strip will go up on the Etsy shop, maybe for a fund raiser?

    My Christmas tree is hollow underneath, the presents in a ring around the outside edge of the skirt, for this very reason. Makes a nice hidey hole under the tree, and makes it look like we have tons of presents!

    Haul out the blankies

    Under the tree before 3 spirits call again

    Curl up in a smol box

    No more rushing ’round the decked halls – ahem

    For we need a little snore-fest

    Right this very minute

    Frost will etch the windows

    Our dreams’ll be really vivid

    Yes, we need a little snooze-fest

    Right this very minute

    Haven’t slept a single second, for at least an hour, we reckon

    Invite in little Bea

    Turn down the brightest string of lights we’ve ever seen

    Share the best-est spots

    It’s time to hang our “do not disturb” sign

    For we’ve grown a little sleepy

    Day’s a little older

    Feel a little gladder

    Snuggle a little closer

    And we’ll have a little catnap

    Weather’s getting colder

    Need a little drowsing now

    For we had enough music

    Heard enough laughter

    Had it with the singing, ringing through the rafter

    Now we need a little downtime

    Nappin’ ever after

    Need some little snoozies now

    (Jerry Herman – We Need a Little Christmas)

    Could I ask for a few prayers? My problem is trivial compared to many others, but I’m in day two of terrible vertigo without understanding why I have it. It’s messing up everything. Feeding the cats is next to impossible since I have to bend down, but they won’t take food from my husband. Thank you!

    Trouble used to make a beeline under the tree after it was fully decorated to start her napping season. She never bothered the tree itself, but if mom forgot to leave a space for her when placing presents, she’d find the box with the most elaborate bow mom had made and sleep on it. Mom got trained quickly.

    Today is:

    Worldwide Candle Lighting Day: Light a candle at 7:00 pm local time in remembrance of those who died young, especially if there was someone you knew. If you cannot light a candle, pause a moment to think a warm thought of them.

    National Day of the Horse: Do not neigh say it. The relationship between humans and horses is an ancient and honorable one, rivaling that of canines and humans. For herd animals, horses can be surprisingly individualistic. Humans could learn something from this, neigh? (Think Japanese.)

    National Violin Day: Yes, you should fiddle with this. The violin is said to have a the closest sound to the human voice of any musical instrument. Maybe that’s why I find them so annoying at times. Violins, however, can express the full range of human emotions, though it is not polite to fiddle with others’ emotions. There are even violent violins, as anyone who has heard a Paganini piece can attest.

    World Choral Day: Does anyone hear voices? It’s only the horses and violins giving a rendition of “Das Lied von der Erde.” Hey! Who invited the Shoutmunks! Well, that’s okay: “All God’s Children Got a Place in the Choir.”

    Ice Cream Day: Yes, again! After all that singing, it will soothe your throat, if not your ears … “I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream,” and now our throats really need soothing. No help for the ears, though …

    National Cocoa Day: Now that you are chilled from all that ice cream, have some hot cocoa. If you are really cold, make it the way the ancient Mayans and Aztecs did. Even chili peppers are good with chocolate, and there is a modern equivalent: This year, Andersons Chocolate Shop in Richmond, IL, made Chocolate Habenero Creams, and we got a box. They will definitely warm your ears from the inside out.

    Old-style Christmas tree lights gave off enough heat to make the tree area cozy for cats. LED lights – meh. There was also a traditional cotton batting that went around the base of the tree. It was soft for snoozing, if you remembered not to shred it with your claws.

    Goldie’s first napping season. I’m remembering she didn’t get out of quarintine until Christmas Day last year. Maybe I’m remembering that wrong.

    But Elvis does not fit Scrooge. He may be many things, but he’s certainly not a Scrooge.
