Ernie with face in Christmas tree bow

Hmmmm…this bow could use a little adjustment. Let me see what I can do.

Ernie! Get your face out of that bow and leave it alone!

Ernie caught in the act

Sheesh. I try to help a little and that’s the thanks I get. *whispering* I’ll just come back when she’s not around to see me.

  1. What? How ungracious of your mom! Even we can see you’re trying to make an adjustment!

  2. That’s good thinking Ernie, you can help out later!

  3. And then, the lace of that bow will be sucked in by your vacuum for cat hair ( T T )

  4. You’re such a good helper!!

  5. it’s obvious that bow needs adjusting.

  6. Of course it’s always more fun when da humans can’t see you 🙂 heh heh.

  7. That’s a good plan. You’ll do what needs doing. Good job.

    Have a purrfect day and week. My best to your peeps. ♥

  8. Humans are so picky about their decorations. When they are at a cat’s eye level, we should be able to arrange them to please us. XOCK, angel Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, angel Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth, Calista Jo, Cooper Murphy and Sawyer

  9. I think you did a great job.

  10. Sometimes, humans totally lack in understanding and appreciation of our efforts!

  11. Ernie, nice try to fix that ribbon. Like you said, wait for the Mom to be gone. You all have a great day.

  12. Doesn’t she know that the feline quality control specialists must inspect everything? If she really doesn’t care about quality, you can just let her suffer the consequences! Happens a lot around here.

  13. Yep, just wait until she’s out of sight Ernie! Then adjust to your heart’s content, MOL.

  14. You have a very sneaky Mom sneaking up on you like that! Know you will plan your return when she is gone or busy doing something else. MOL

  15. Why do humans always have issues with our help? They are SO picky!

  16. You’re the best helper ever! Keep helping!

  17. Our mom’s should be GRATEFUL for our help!

  18. You are a smart kitty, Ernie!

  19. You are such a good helper, Ernie. Too bad humans don’t appreciate it. Maybe you can come back in the night when she is asleep and maybe you run into Santa 🙂

  20. Humans are just not grateful creatures. Definitely come back later, you know what looks best. Kittehs are naturally skilled at interior design.

  21. You can always “help” when she’s not looking . . . .

  22. That bow will NOT be perfect unless YOU fix it!!!! Wait ’til the are asleep….

  23. You were doing such a great job Ernie!

  24. Ernie, I can’t believe you were scolded for trying to help. Sheesh!

  25. Well done Ernie…I expect that bow was very crooked and needed fluffing up.

  26. I do the same thing Ernie – pretend to understand what Mom is telling me to do or not do – then after she’s gone I do what I PLANNED to do all along PERIOD. Hey – we cats have a mind of our own right???

    Hugs, Teddy

  27. You and Frodo have the same concept of “helping” with decorating!!

  28. You did a great job, Ernie, to bad the mom thinks differently…MOL 😀 Pawkisses for a Happy Monday 🙂 <3

  29. We think you did a great job, Ernie, too bad your mom doesn’t think the same way. Purrs

  30. Ernie, it’s a frustrating time of the year. The humans hang cat toys all over a tree indoors and expect us to ignore them??? We say NO!

  31. You did a great job of improving the bow, Ernie.

  32. We are so unappreciated… –Mudpie

  33. No good deed goes unpunished, right, Ernie? 🙂

  34. Clearly your mom has no idea of perfection, Ernie!

  35. We all like to help decorate around here too, Ernie! And we get the same lack of appreciation and attitude you received. Lately we have decided to “straighten up” the humom’s questionable decorating style when she is sleeping. That might work better for you as well ;p XOXO

  36. Humans do not appreciate the help we could give them.

  37. Did your mom know that you made the bow look better?

  38. They say no good deed goes unpunished. Hopefully you will be able to fix that bow when nobody is looking.

  39. dood…sum onez mom iz knot in de Christmas spirit….did her forget that thiz iz de seazon when most peepulz strezz out.. big time… N her doez knot knead ta add two her strezz…. bye yellin at ewe…



  40. Another reason why kitties get a bad repurr-tashun around Christmas trees. Here we are twying to make the season bwighter with slight adjustments to the ornery-tatshun… and we get our ears blistered for doing it! Pffft!

  41. We like your strategy..!! – Tom x

  42. A cat’s work is never done.

  43. “The next time you see this bow it will be covered in my urine!”

  44. Ernie.,that was the finishing touch!

  45. MOL I get the same scolding on the daily. Get out of the lights Matilda (I was trying to straighten them), Quit knocking over Santa (him needed a nap)…blah blah blah they just don’t appreciate us 😉

    Matilda (& Matt)

  46. Dang. You try to help humans, and that’s the thanks you get? We feel ya, Ernie!

  47. I think you were busted , Ernie!

  48. Mew mew mew of coarse you were just adjustin tHE bow…mee beeleevess you Ernie!
    Yore too hansum to bee hollered at!!
    *whispurrsss* ‘go back later an finish THE job…’
    **purrsss** BellaDharma

  49. MOL! Yeah, just go back when she’s not looking. She should really be thanking you.

  50. Do your thing Ernie!
