You guys! This selfie is coming straight to you from my hammick.

Ernie lying in his hammick

Well, the big Christmas tree is finally up and decorated…and yes, I did my quality-control check. For the most part, the mom did an okay job. But there was one ornament that looked out of place so I had to remove it…and play with it a little.

But after that, I’ve mostly left the tree alone. Being an older kitty, I prefer snoozing under the tree rather than climbing it like I did in my younger years. That keeps me off of Santa Paws’ naughty list. Which means one thing…more presents for me!

  1. Lucky you did your quality check or your mom would never have known about the ornament being out of place.

  2. Ernie, it was good that you found that out of place decoration.
    It was OK to play with it a little bit until its proper place was found 😉
    I bet sleeping under the tree is fun and warm and cozy!
    Purrs, Julie

  3. Nice of you to take care of the ornament that was not in an ideal place…..we have to keep an eye on what humans do – they can be SOOOOOO inept at doing some stuff! I’m sure because of your concern for the ornament you will be rewarded when Santa Paws visits!

    Hugs, Teddy

  4. I was trying to whap off a plastic star on a tree yesterday. Mum didn’t say anything to me, so I guess it is OK to whap!

  5. Looking good, Ernie. And good job with the quality control on the tree!

  6. Ernie, cats are ALWAYS on the nice list; it’s a law or something!
    Good job of snoopervising the mom person.

  7. Ernie, we have been pretty good around the tree…only removing a few ornaments here and there. But last night some kitty knocked over our little memorial tree for Angel Twinkle. Fifteen ornaments were found to be lying on the floor under it. Now mom has to fix it. We are sure happy all our Christmas gifts have already been purchased. Thanks for always joining our hop.

  8. How good of you to help your Mom with quality control! You are a furry helpful kitty, Ernie!

  9. Good job on the Christmas tree. Glad someone is supervising. Good day to “hammick”!

  10. What a great selfie, Ernie! And we really like the glowing ear!

  12. Ernie! Our Mom has to put the tree up early so that I get the chance to check it BEFORE the ornaments go on…I am pretty sure that I will re-adjust some of the ornaments once they get put on the tree. i am so glad to see that other cats do quality control too! We (finally) have a warmish day, I am out to frolic in the snow – I need to burrow a path the junipers and the snow is over my back, so I think it will take a couple if trips. Keep on being awesome and purrs to you and your Peeps! Marv

    • Marv, the mom does the same thing. She put the tree up first and waited a few days before decorating it so I could get used to it.

  13. Being on the ‘Nice’ list is the fast route to mega treats (so we are told). Good one Ernie.

  14. Nice relaxing selfie Ernie, and good work checking out ornament placement on the tree!

  15. Good job helping your Mom with the tree.

  16. Your folks are lucky to have your expertise at decorating. XO

  17. YOur mom is very lucky to have your help with quality control!!

  18. You’re like me Ernie, I’d rather look at the tree than play with it. Happy snoozy day!

  19. I hope the out of place ornament is OK.

  20. That’s very smart thinking!

  21. I am proud of you Ernie!

  22. Sleep is a great way to prepare for the busies of Christmastime!

    Nice relaxing selfie, Ernie!

  23. Always an achievement to stay off the naughty list, but we doubt that is hard for you as we’ve always known you to be a nice kitty cat! Yup, Ernie ~ The Nice Cat.

  24. Ernie, that is a good looking spot to rest. That hammock looks warm and cozy! Mom puts soft ornaments near the bottom of the trees so we can play with them if the mood strikes, and sometimes it does!

  25. You sure are an easy guy to get along with Ernie! We hope Santa brings you lots of naps in his napsack so you can snooze as much as you choose. You sure are a good looking fella for a someone who has seen so many seasons come and go.

    By the way, on Tuesday we are featuring you in a couple of LOLs from the old Icanhascheezeburger Days.

  26. My cats don’t know the joy of a Christmas tree … I blame it all on Bear.

  27. Ernie what a stunning sun puddle photo. Your black furs are glistening
    Hugs Cecilia

  28. I hope you get something you really want this year, Ernie.
