Mister's Guide to Christmas (Part 2)

I hope everyone is having a good week. It's very cold here and has been raining lots. Of course, I still make Mom go on a walk every morning when she wakes up. It's good for her. That snow stuff can't decide if it wants to come or not. I hope not. It's very cold, even if it does taste yummy (just stay away from the yellow kind).

I have a very important Christmas tip for my fur-pals. The humans are busy decorating the house for Christmas and at some point they will bring in a tree. Tip #4: DO NOT PEE ON THE TREE!!! Some families have a real tree, some have a fake tree. Either way, do not pee on it!

I know, I know. You're thinking, "But Mister, why would my people bring a tree into the house if they didn't want me to pee on it. After all, it's very cold and maybe they don't want to let me outside to potty." That is a very good argument, but arguing with the humans is a lesson in futility (my daddy taught me that word). The reason the humans bring a tree into the house is because they're crazy. But you already know that. Besides, if there was no tree, Santa Paws wouldn't know where you want him to leave presents. So unless you want wet gifts, stay far away from the tree.

I have another tip to go along with that. It applies mostly to kitty cats, but some of you canines might want to know too. Tip 4a) Do not climb the tree. Again, the humans are crazy. Probably too much eggnog (except my people don't drink eggnog...hmmm). Either way, they're more likely to pass off yummy treats if you leave the tree alone.


  1. Mister, please can you come to my house and tell Sookie and Darcy that? They don't seem to understand the whole 'not climbing the tree thing'. Hope you're doing well at not peeing on the tree, I understand it must be very tempting!!

  3. Peeing on the tree is really not allowed?
