Hey Ernie…Christmas is only a few days away.
Are you getting excited?

Yeah, Wally, I can’t wait!
I just know I’m gonna get lots of presents!

You sure ’bout that, Ernie?
You’ve been kinda naughty lately.

Whaddaya mean?

Um…well, if I were you…
I’d stop climbing the Christmas tree, buddy.

You know that’s a no-no around here.

You gotta catch me doing it.

You were caught doing it…
there’s photographic evidence.  See?


Uh oh…I hope Santa Paws doesn’t see this.

I dunno, Ernie…
don’t be surprised if you find a lump of coal
in your stocking Christmas morning.

  1. Dood, you still have time to change your ways!

  2. Coal can be kind of messy so maybe it won’t happen!

  3. Santa Paws understands that sometimes kitties just need to get into a little mischief 😉

  4. Hehe you better behave for a few more days! Love you two on the bed!!!

  5. Ernie may we suggest rubbing round your Mom’s legs and purring loudly may help Santa Paws to think he ought to give you a really lovely stack of prezzies.
    Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

  6. You’d better hope the humans didn’t overhear this cat-versation!

  7. I think Santa knows you were merely adding yourself as a decoration 😉

  8. Hey, as long as the tree doesn’t topple over, it’s okay!

  9. Oh oh Ernie… That’s pretty convincing evidence… Oh and Wally- Thompson accepts your sleep-off challenge…

  10. don’t worry Ernie – we think you are safe 🙂

  11. That photo was clearly photo shopped, Santa can’t rely on photographic evidence anymore- you are safe.

  12. Merry Christmas, Mancats! Behave!

  13. =) You´re awesome and lovely!

  14. Oh no, your naughty was caught by pawparazzi and posted on the web! I sure hope Santa Paws won’t see that. Hahaha 🙂

  15. Ernie, don’t pay any attention to Wally. What would Christmas be without you in the tree?? Nothing better than a nice black cat in the middle of the tree. You all have a great day.

  16. OH man…. You’d better start acting REAL good this week or you’re going to get nothing but milk rings. Actually, that wouldn’t be so bad….- Crepes.

  17. Ernieeeeee! naughty naughty!!

  18. Yup, if you’re gonna be naughty, you’ve gotta do it without leavin’ the evidence. Been there. Done that. I know.


  19. Does Santa follow your blog? If so, Ernie, you’re busted! Then again, cats gotta be cats and I think Santa knows that too. Surely, he has a kitty at home in the North Pole.

  20. Uh oh… we will help destroy the evidence, Ernie!

  21. Oh Ernie! How high did you get?

    • I got about halfway up the tree, Simba. I woulda made it all the way to the top, but the branches got smaller and smaller. 😉

  22. Ernie sometimes a cat has to climb the tree to make it safe for the family. See I think that is what you were doing. Making sure that tree was safe!

  23. We’re sure everything will come right on Christmas Day and everyone will be spoiled!

    The Chans

  24. ERNIE mom used to work w a man who was owned by 3 kitties. He had a hook placed permanently in the ceiling where they put their tree. He looped a chain Around the top of the tree and then hooked it to the hok in the ceiling
    Madi your bfff

  25. Oh no! Dang cameras! But surely Santa knows that you just wanted to help the humans with the decorations… 😉 xx Roxy & Tigerlino <3

  26. Oh boy the rule of thumb when climbing the tree is never get caught, especially when there is a proof of that 🙂

    Happy Holidays boys.

  27. We’ve been good (well, except Binga)! But we won’t be getting anything for Christmas. The Secret Paws was a dud (I just got a t-shirt?!), and my human had a bad year financially (between the nearly six-figure retaining wall and the furnace dying), so nobody in the family is getting any gifts from her! It doesn’t matter, though, the Santa Kitty Toy Hop was all the Christmas we need.

  28. Santa gives extra presents to kitties who climb trees Ernie! We just know it!

  29. mol! Ernie, that is proly just somecat that looks like you 😉 Good luck with Sandy Clawrs 🙂

    Pip, Smidgen, Minnie, Hollie

  30. Oh, I really think that Santa Claws forgives us kitties for things that we naturally do, like climbing trees. I haven’t climbed the Christmas Tree yet but I did climb the ficus trees in the screened-in porch, more than once!

    Purrrrrrrrrrrrrrrs, Spike William

  31. Quick -somebody get this through Photoshop! We’ll take you right out of that, Santa need never know. PS: we really like that pic of both of y’all together.

  32. We don’t see anything or anyone naughty ; it’s a security check of the tree and its ornaments, isn’t it Ernie ? Purrs

  33. Dude – the tree is for EATING,not climbing!

  34. Yes, tree climbing is sometimes frowned upon. LOL

  35. Charlie loves fellow tree climbers – Go Ernie!

  36. Psst Ernie…over here..iss Siddhartha…just tell Santa Clawss you were checkin eberyfing wass purrfect on the tree an thee litess 😉
    Wally yur so funny, MOL!
    Merry Katmass to both of you an Zoey an da Peepss too.
    Yur furend, Siddhartha an *LadyMum* too

  37. That could be ANY black cat, Ernie. I don’t think it’s you.

  38. What photographic proof? We don’t see anything in that trees except gorgeous ornaments! 🙂

    the critters in the cottage xo

  39. I am sure that looks like Nott Me trying to impersonate you.

  40. Way to go, Ernie! Can you believe none of us have climbed ours this year? We’re too busy making running dives at the tree skirt and riding it across the tile floor.

  41. Well, iffen ya DO get coal, mebbe it will be mousie-shaped an ya can shove it around the room and leave coal-dust evrywhere!

  42. Don’t worry Ernie, mom bean says coal is hard to come by. She should know, MOL

    Have a furry Merry Christmas efurrybody!!

    Sasha. Sami, & Saku

  43. If the tree didn’t fall over and ornaments didn’t break, I say you didn’t do anything naughty.

  44. Oh but you look so cute in that tree!

  45. Dood, we kinda think Faraday thinks you’re his HERO now.
    Which basically means you are SO busted.

  46. You didn’t hear it from us, Ernie, but we hear Santa is kind of lenient about these things. You have a few days to make up for that naughtiness … better get to work! 🙂

  47. good luck Ernie. There is probably something stashed away for you, though. Humans are pretty softie about presents.

  48. Somehow I think Santa will think you’re nice no matter what!

  49. LOL!! Happy Holidays!

  50. Uh yes…it seems as though you were caught red-pawed there Ernie…but don’t worry Clooney Claus will reward bad behavior…MOL!

  51. OMC Yous weally in da twee. MOL Y’all awe so cute togedder.

    Luv ya’

    Dezi and Lexi

  52. Bo and Kobi haven’t been very good cats either. I think it’s in the DNA. I’m sure Santa Paws will understand!

  53. Climbing in the Christmas tree is a must for a cat ! Humans are strange that they don’t understand !

  54. Festive Greetings from all of us…
    Love Helen, Darcy, Bingley and Fred xxxx

  55. Isn’t that a Christmas ritual? I mean if you don’t climb the tree Santa won’t bring toys and nip!
    Happy Holidays!

    Noodle and crew

  56. I like the idea that Madi and mom mentioned; a loop in the ceiling to keep the tree up! LOL!

  57. GASP! How’d yoo get in there? Yoo are my hero.

  58. We think the Catmas Eve party will go on, just not with the Hotties. Their mum was giving the info to Uncle Mo for the CB. Check there for a link.

  59. Merry Christmas Eve!

  60. To you both & fameowly
    May your Christmas sparkle with moments of love, laughter and goodwill, And may the year ahead be full of contentment and joy.



    ❤ ❤ ❤


  61. Uh-oh, Ernie. Maybe if you leave Santa extra milk and cookies?

  62. Ohhh that is one of Marty’s favorite things to do!

  63. Ernie, we’ve had no tree climbers since MacKenzie. Don’t know why we’re not interested, but we are having fun removing ornaments from the tree. You make a darling tree ornament! XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo
