Friday Cat Blogging – 7 December 2012

I have an exciting new catblogging/quiltblogging series planned for 2013, but that’s still a few weeks away. For now, you get Christmas tree blogging. To my surprise, I plonked Domino in front of the newly-decorated tree a couple of nights ago, and she actually sat there and let me take her picture for a minute or two. Perhaps she was rewarding me for buying a new brand of cat food that she obviously likes a whole lot better than the old brand. Who knows? In any case, so far the tree is intact and Domino hasn’t started playing with the low-hanging ornaments yet. We’ll see if that changes over the next week or so.
