Christmas From A Cat's Perspective

Hi everyone - Mr Nova here.
Every year when the weather turns colder, the humans begin to act very weird. 
It must have something to do with the furnace being turned on.
They try to dress Kovu and I in a hideous white beard and red hat. 
Do humans understand that cats do NOT wear clothing? We have our dignity to preserve.
The other strange thing is they begin to set up a fake tree in the great room right next to the fireplace. They then adorn it with sparkly, glittery CAT toys that we are NOT allowed to touch. 
Humans can be so mean-spirited sometimes.
Underneath this tree they place a velvet cat blanket. We can only enjoy it for a short while before they start covering it up with objects wrapped in colorful paper. Kovu and I cannot fathom why they set this all up without leaving any room for us to sleep.
If we try to see what is inside the packages, the humans just growl at us. Why put pretty bows on top if we are not allowed to play with them?
A few days later they just rip all the paper off anyway. We could have helped them with this process.
Kovu and I just sit in the pile of paper and shake our heads.
At least we are allowed to play with this paper for a while.
And don't get me started as to why they decorate the trees outside. Total lunacy. 
Can't they see that it is snowing? and cold? and pointless?
Humans!!!!! We cannot understand them, but cannot live without them either! 
Merry Christmas everyone!


  1. Wonderful, thanks for the laugh! I have no doubt indeed that this is what they think!

  2. I think my cats would agree somewhat with your Mr. Covu and Mr. Nova! They look at us (Mittens and Jasmine) like we are crazy! Although they seem to rather enjoy the fuss around putting up the Christmas tree. They are always right there to "help" and immediately discuss who gets to lay where under the tree. They are fascinated with the decorations and I am careful not to have any of the extremely breakable ornaments near the bottom. They seem to think those at the bottom are fair game for play! And, when the dog, Carly, decides she would also like to lay under the tree, they are quick to scold her and let her know that this is their domain!

  3. What a fun post... Mr. Nova should keep up showing us the world through feline eyes. I guess that's what they think indeed... ;O)


  4. Awww! They are so sweet! I would have thought my little Gigie cat would have been a little naughty and at least jump in the tree. But no, this is too childish for her. Oh well! Love the new blog!!
    big hugs♥,

  5. By the looks of all that paper, it wasn't only that cats that had a good time! Thanks for the memories Sam!
    Big hugs,
