Like many others I finally succumbed and put up the Christmas tree. I have very rarely put the tree up much before December 18th but this year is a year of change in many ways. I needed the lift that staring at a brightly lit tree gives me. Callie loves Christmas, I think. She loves to lay under the tree as if to remind us all of what a gift she really is – and she is! And a blessing in many ways. I don’t know how I would have gotten through these difficult months without her. I know cats have a reputation for climbing (and often destroying) Christmas trees. Callie has never been destructive in any way. (Her mama raised her to have good manners LOL – wasn’t me, she came to me when she was two years old haha.) Here she is in all her Christmas glory:

My very sweet Callie-cat

    1. A lot of people are early with their Christmas trees this year. We sure needed something bright, beautiful, and hopeful in our lives.

      I wonder why cats like Christmas trees? Maybe they like the warmth from the lights? Hmmmm

  1. Okay…more heart melting here. Please, please, please give Callie a chin scratch/rub for me. We, similar to you, decided to put up our Christmas tree early, in November. lol I figure anything positive is good, especially in these trying times. All the best my friend…and don’t forget to give Callie that extra bit of love from me. โค โค

    1. I will deliver the lovings from you as soon as she wakes up again…she’s getting older (she’s almost 9 in our years) so she naps a fair bit. She will enjoy the chin scratch, one of her most-loved thins. Haha Thanks so much my friend.

    1. Aw, I do not wish to cause pain! It’s been a tough year for everyone, I think. I am so grateful to you for your kind words and your support. I enjoy photography (and writing, of course) and it is a true pleasure to share.

      I send warmest greeting and the best of wishes to you. And blessings, so many blessings.
