The Great Christmas Paw
I’m one of those people that like my holidays one at a time…so as soon as Thanksgiving was behind us, I was ready to decorate our house for the holidays. Kitty Paw wasn’t so excited…at first. Decorating means lots of moving boxes, open and closed doors…and of course, the vacuum cleaner (courtesy of my neat freak husband). However, once everything was in place, she quickly found her favorite spot under the Christmas tree – it’s her favorite.

This is just the first of many reasons that I love this time of year. Happy Tuesday!

PS: Did you see that I’m bringing back Memories, Dreams and Reflections? If you participated last year, then I hope you will be inspired to once again take a walk down memory lane with me and share your favorites moments from 2011. If this is your first time hearing about MDR, be sure to click over and check it out – you can sign up  now and link your photos starting January 1, 2012 (To clarify…just link up your main blog if you’re interested in participating now – then start going through your archives. On January 1, I’ll open the linky. You can post all of your photos for MDR in one post and link that post up. Make sense?) Much like Scavenger Hunt Sunday, feel free to write as much or as little about each photo. 
Memories, Dreams and Reflections


    Ha Ha- That is where our kitty stays too! Silly kitty’s

    OH, yes, my kitty kitty is not happy with all the changes that come with this season. Lovely photo!

    You did get a package to already put under the tree right?

    Such a cutie! I remember when I had cats that would sit under the tree–they loved it. Our current (three-year-old) “kitten” would make mincemeat of one–real or fake. Enjoy!!

    adorable. seeing all the Christmas decor start to go up makes me really excited to do our own–we haven’t gotten to it yet. :)

    Awww, so cute and I have to admit if I were small enough I think I would like it under there too – kinda cozy!! ; )

    She is so cute!

    It’s been way to long girl! I’ve missed you gorgeous shot! Awwww… I wish I had a cute little kitty under my Christmas tree! She is beautiful!

    Does she like to play with the ornaments? And for the record, I had to vacuum and wash the floors moments before the tree went up. Husbands these days…

    She is adorable!! My cats get crazy in the Christmas period because of all the ornaments…in the middle of August we still find little balls or stars hiddend around the house……..

    So funny – that’s usually where they end up!

    What a lovely picture. She’s so cute!

    Kitty Paw looks very regal sitting under the tree.

    AWWWWW so sweet… Is Kitty Paw gracing your Christmas card this year???

    She looks so cute! We spend all of Dec keeping the cats out of the room with the tree- they like to climb it & chew the wires. How embarrassing it would be to have our tree catch fire in the fireman’s house :) My 2 are mischievous!

    Aw, so cute! Love Ms. Kitty Paw!! She picked a good spot!

    I’m like that with my holiday too! Love all the holiday bokeh shots that we’ll be seeing soon too! I remember MDR last year, and thought WHAT A COOL IDEA! If I’m organzied enough, I’d love to do that this year!

    KP is so photogenic :) We were all over decorating our house as soon as Thanksgiving was over. It was exhausting but SOOO fun.

    I love Kitty Paw so much! Dexter loves being under the tree, too :)

    Such a cute shot. I love Christmas tree pictures! And now I’m off to check out this MDR. Sounds fun!

    My black and white kitty, Chubby loves to lay under the tree too. :) He loves to pretend he’s in the forest. ;)

    What a darling kitty :) My mom’s kitties like to climb her Christmas tree.. you know where they’ve been because all the branches are bent down… haha Happy Tuesday!!

    What a perfect picture of your Christmas cat.


    Kitty Paw has such pretty eyes. :)

    So cute! Our kitties love it under the tree too! I’m having fun seeing all of the Christmas decorations up in blogland! Such fun!

    This is so cute, great Christmas card photo!

    Question for the Memories, Dreams and Reflections… Will each prompt have its own post? Or do we put all 25 prompts in one post and only link up once?

    waht a sweet picture of your cat!

    Light Trigger: OUR ENTRY

    You have a good kitty. I have bad kitties. ;) They like to climb the tree, swat at the ornaments, and chew whatever they can reach. ;) They leave it alone when we’re in the room, but as soon as we’re gone, they attack!

    I’m with you, one special day at a time. I’m putting up the tree today and enjoying Christmas music. When we had our kitty, though she was up in years, she would always climb halfway up the tree and sit there like an owl. It still sort of saddens me that the ritual of tying the tree to the window to prevent it from falling due to her weight is now a thing of the past. Kitty Paw looks beautiful, by the way.

    Kitty Paw is such a cutie! My kitty is very happy our tree is up, he loves to try to get the candy canes. This year he has some competition with Parker trying to get the candy canes as well.

    I wonder what it is that makes kitties love being under the tree. Ours has claimed the area too. Being still a kitten, we have had a few broken ornaments.

    ahhhhh so cute.

    I didn’t do MDR last year so I’m away to see if I’ve got photos to suit the categories this time.

    Aw, she is beautiful under the tree! Change is always tough (especially for kitties), but sometimes it’s worth it.

    She looks so cute curled up under the tree. I plan on participating. I can go through archives. It is new pictures I have a hard time with lately. :P

    He is so cute!

    It’s so funny how they gravitate to under the tree like that. BTW, if your neat freak needs more vacuuming, my house would be happy to see someone do that more frequently! Also, I’m not sure I could find something for all the memories/reflections list you have, can I do a partial list and link up or would you rather keep it simple and have whole list folks only?

    I was going through some cute kitty withdrawal, so you have perfect timing! :D

    Beautiful kitty!


    What a great photo. The green eyes in this photo are so amazing.

    My cat does the same thing, however I think she is waiting on the ribbon on the packages so she can chewup and eat it!

    My cat thinks that our Christmas decorations are all cat toys. He was so jazzed about us setting everything up.
    Oh, CATS!

    That is my favorite place this time of year too ;)
