So we got this lovely artificial tree we like to put up for Christmas. Molly likes her new climbing structure and all the doo-dads we put on to amuse her. Humph! Time to engage my engineering brain and come up with a contraption to keep her down.
Here it is. My engineering wonder – a layer of garbage bags (empty) between the branches that she can’t get through. And it worked! I am SO brilliant! I should patent this thing! Well, at least share it with the bloggy world or something.
Um, my cat is persistent.
Bugger! OK, it is kind of cute. Enough so that I grab my camera instead of wrestling her out of the damn tree.
Then this happened.
Aaaarrrrggggghhhh!!! That would be the ornament that was Owen’s favourite, the one he wanted to inherit and pass down through the generations.
So when he got home from school, I told him that Molly had outsmarted our cat-baffler. Owen responded, “Back to the drawing board, mom!” Love that kid!
So now I have to hunt down another world globe heirloom ornament and re-engineer the cat baffler. Christmas is exhausting!
