Hey kitties!  I think I’m in BIG trouble this time!  I just might be getting that lump of coal in my stocking this Christmas.  Y’see…I got caught climbing the Christmas tree…not once, but twice!!  I just couldn’t resist!!

And y’know what??  I can’t even deny that it was me because there’s photographic evidence of my tree-climbing escapades!!

Yep, that’s me in the candycane collar!! I wouldn’t show my face but it’s still kinda hard to pin this on Wally or Zoey.

But srsly…who puts a tree up in a house and then puts shiny, dangly toys all over it and doesn’t expect me to touch it…let alone climb it??  Personally, I think it’s a case of entrapment!!  I was being set up to fail!!  So unfair!!

I think this being good stuff shouldn’t apply to us cats.  Afterall, we’re cats…we should be able to do whatever we want whenever we want!!  Dontcha agree with me, kitties??

So Santa Paws…if you’re listening…could you cut me a little slack…okay??

  1. I agree Ernie. My mommy lets me do whatever I want whenever I want as long as it’s not scratching impawtent things.

  2. Don’t worry Ernie!! Santa understands that you need
    to check out the tree…for,um,safety reasons.
    Yeah,that’s it!! Safety!!!! Twice is OK 😉
    No coal for you dude!!!!
    Purrs Mickey,Georgia & Tillie

  3. So, Ernie’s ‘rents, what’s the problem! He’s being careful and didn’t knock it down. We say go for it Ernie!!!

  4. Purrsonally I think if you climbed the tree really good then that should count in the good category!

  5. You were just having some exercise while climbing the tree – what’s the matter with that – they’d moan if you slept all day

  6. Ernie, we think climbing the tree was just purrfect. What else is a tree for except to climb and if the rents didn’t want you to climb it, they shoulda left it outside. And we all know for sure that those things hanging on the limbs are just toys for us. Why else would they be there.
    So you do NOT get coal from Santa Paws. Maybe you should have tree of your very own. That picture of you under the tree is priceless. You are so cute. Take care and have a great day.

  7. Ernie, we have it on good authority that Santa will not hold this against you. Gandalf and Grayson BOTH climb the Christmas tree! Whitey and Gracie have not had the opportunity as Momma does not have room for a tree at the Swamp.

  8. Ernie, I’m pretty sure that Santa will not hold this against you. Figaro ate up his first ornament, and he’s so darn cute that mom didn’t even yell at him. Can you believe that? I think Santa expects kitties to be a bit naughty. It’s a part of being cats. Yeah, that’s right. In order to be a good cat you have to do stuff like climb trees and whap ornaments. I’m sure of it.

  9. Ernie, you are SUPPOSED to climb trees. It’s in-stink(er)-yoo-all.
    Santa will prolly bring you double pressies!

  10. Everyone should be impressed by your tree climbing skills… But no…

  11. We’re pretty sure you’re in the clear, Ernie. We’re bad all year round and we always get presents! In fact, we’re so sure you’ll get enough presents that if you don’t, we’ll share ours. Trees are for climbing!

  12. You have a justifiable case there about trees in the house, Ernie…and we’re sure you will get pressies…..lotza pressies xxxxxxxxxxx

  13. No fair indeed! Hmmm…you never said you knocked the tree down, Ernie, so that should be a plus in your favor 🙂

  14. Rest easy, Ernie. Playing with the tree and al that is on it is just part of the big Christmas game!

  15. Don’t worry Ernie, everyone knows trees are for climbing, So Sandy Claws is sure to know too. He is probably secretly impressed.

  16. I totally agree! How can those human beans expect us to set up a cat tree with all sorts of dangling cat toys on it?

  17. we always wonder how a tree suddenly gets INSIDE! Love Helen, Darcy and Bingley xx

  18. Uh oh. We quit climbing trees a few years ago. We are getting a bit “older”.

  19. he he – Oh Ernie! I bet you had a good time. Too bad I wasn’t there cuz I could have joined you.

  20. Ernie, I am so glad you saw my post and you now know the truth! I think you are a very good Christmas tree climber!

  21. Hehe, we hope you had fun with climbing in the tree …LOL
    We got a tree today to but unfortuntely in Germany they first put up the tree on 24th December…

  22. Ichiro needs a lot of slack too…

  23. I think our humans put up Christmas trees just to get us into trouble! I am sure Santa will understand!

  24. Dood, Santa totally gets it. In fact, I’m pretty sure he’s an advocate of tying the tree in place so that the kitties CAN climb it if they want. We don’t climb, we just bat the ornaments off. Right now, there are 3 or 4 missing, and I know where they are, but I’m not telling…

  25. Ernie, Santa knows that Christmas trees are put in the house just for cats to climb and also to have toys all over it. Don’t worry, he’ll still bring you lots of presents!

  26. I agree whole heartedly!! Who puts a giant cat toy in the middle of a room and doesn’t expect us to play with it!!?? Geeze!!
    Good job my friend! Don’t worry, your Mom is a softie and she will still tell Santa to bring you good presents!

  27. Ruh-Roh, you may be getting that lump of coal!

  28. Ernie, entrapment for sure. I would climb if I had clawrs, and if they didn’t keep the tree in a room with doors. Really.

  29. Hi, Ernie. We understand that you have to climb the tree because it is there! Santa understands as well….so don’t worry 🙂 Just be careful with cords!

  30. We absolutely agree!!

  31. I totally agree. But don’t worr,y Ernie, I destroyed the tree the first year I was with the family and I still got plenty of treats on Christmas Day.

  32. If you did not topple the tree, break any toys or take any off, then it does not count

  33. balls and baubles are toys. to decorate and just stare at them is silly. go, ernie!

  34. I’m pretty sure it’s only against the Rules to knock it over. . . so as long as the tree stands, you still get presents. Right?

  35. If there’s a TREE in the house, it belongs to the kitties to do with as they choose. Climb, Ernie, climb! Your tree-less feline brothers are cheering you on! You’re climbing for all of us!

  36. Ernie, it is actally OK fer cat ta climb Xmas trees! That why there is a star at the top. Yer sposed ta “reach fer the stars”, right. Well, thats the star. Keep tryin… Its a test.

  37. That is a very nice spot you stay!Ernie!

  38. Don’t worry my friend… no human can resist our cuteness!!

  39. omg Ernie, I can’t believe !You really love to discover different places!But please take care okay.This Christmas tree is so beautiful, you can do something wrong and maybe damage all decoration! hehhe funny boy!

  40. Oh Ernie, the crazy eyes on a house panther just melts our mom! If SHE was Santa Paws, you’d be off the hook for sure!

  41. Naughtiness is good!
    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

  42. Oh Ernie, those wild eyes give you away! They made us laugh.
