A Pretty Little CAT FRIENDLY Christmas

Welcome and Happy Holidays!

Heather at Pretty Petals is hosting a Pretty Little Christmas Blog Party today. I don't have lots of "pretty" holiday things around. I have cats. I used to have a beautiful, Victorian tree every year. I have cats. I used to have lots of glittery pretties around for the holidays. I have cats. I used to have pretty garland coming down the stairs. I have cats. You get the idea.

So, now I have a few key holiday decorations that so far are completely cat-friendly. And truth be told, while I love to look at pretty decorations and I do sometimes miss it, my pretty little four-legged furry children make me just as happy at the holidays and year round.

So....
These are some sample cat holiday cards that some company sent just this year in the mail that I thought would be great cat-friendly decorations, so I purchased some $3 black frames at Walmart and voila! (that's my sweet kitten Henry snoozing in these first two pics)


A cute little Santa (who may not be as cat friendly as I first thought) and a cute little prim stitching project framed up on the wall.

The stockings were hung by the chimney with care.... (well this is really my faux fireplace that we had growing up)

And finally, this is my tree now... a two-foot pinecone tree.... :-)



Have a wonderful peaceful holiday, my friends!

I LOVE your gorgeous kitties!!!! How sweet! We don't hang many decorations down low on our tree, because one of our cats has a penchant for pulling everything off the bottom branches of the tree! lol Thank you for visiting my blog today! =)

Lolly, hee hee hee...i have one tree climbing cat {three furry beasts in all}...and this year i REFUSE not to use my pretty things...there will be a water spray bottle near the tree and i am hoping this will serve as a deterrent...if not...well, i will probably be doing a lot of crying...
