The Only Reason Han Doesn't Like Missmiss Season & I'M BACKKKKK!!!!!!

"Gently" pulling strands of tinsel out of my animal's mouths, throats and stomachs is not very conducive to their physical health and my emotional health. They tend to enjoy eating holiday decorations whiiich...isn't quite a good thing. Plus attempting to break the ornaments. -wince- and drinking all the water under the tree....actually, this year's tree is very prickly, so I don't think they're drinking it. It hurts to reach under there though >.

Plus, I'm done with my semester, and I don't think work will be heavy over break ^___^ So...IM BACK! Uahaha. Now.....I have to spend a few weeks catching up on story >__> XD So...hai to everybody who rememers me, halloo to newsbies I don't know yet.

Because, the ferrets never tried to EAT anything from the tree. They just tried to steal everything as it went on, after it went on, while we put it away........

Cold-'eart D:
Nyaw. I've had animals since before I was born. Right now I have three cats, a duggie and two gerblz. A couple years ago I started having allergic reactions to my older animals though. Usually I was OK unless they were overly shedding on me. But whenever I go away to gets me an edumacation, I'm not around them for months at a time. It usually will take anywhere from three days to a week until I'm used to being in the house again and can go without meds unless I'm shoving my face in their pelts Blum 3

They're my babies though. I couldn't do without 'em. I was so lonely after last year at school that I got the gerbls to live with me I-m so happy

Your cats and ferrets have nothing on a two year old and a great dane when it comes to wrecking Christmas tress.

our cat wrecked the shit out of ours one year...jumped into it from the backside. about 18 pounds of cat jumping onto a Christmas tree...about 2/3 the way up (had a ledge...), and over it goes.

We tie the tree to the window-lock now.

... since my last owner, Zillah, a female Rex, passed on, but I'm at an age and in a health condition where it is very likely that any new pets would outlive me. Therefore, no new pets -- it would be unfair to them...

all the science says so (well, duh!). Have you considered rehoming an older pet? All mine (dog, cats, chooks, horses) were strays or otherwise unwanted. My cat especially was in a really bad way - she's a Chinchilla Persian, and her breeder lost the plot and couldn't keep up with grooming. She was in a 1mx1mx1m cage OUTSIDE! as an entire queen - I bet the neighbourhood boyz loved that - and was covered in matts and open sores where she'd tried to bite out the matts and opened skin flaps doing it. She didn't even have a pet name and didn't know how to be a pet. Needless to say it didn't take her long to learn...

Ack! I'm glad you had the resources to be able to take her in. What did you end up naming her?

Tangentially: I'm sure everyone here already knows this but, PLEASE, for the love of all that's holy and good, neuter your pets!!! *Before* they hit puberty!!

-speaking as a farmer who has to deal with the consequences of other people's irresponsible behavior/opinions towards animals all the fucking time. *growlgrowl**personalcrusade**growl*

Same argument applies -- even a rescued cat could outlive me. (Sigh!)

Our kitties have almost always been good about decorations etc. though one year, one of our cats climbed up the Christmas tree. The tree was pretty huge to begin with (well, we have 8' ceilings, so not HUGE huge, but large nonetheless), and the extra weight up at the top just was too much, and the tree tumbled out of the stand. Fortunately, a majority of the the ornaments survived, and none of the collection of hand-blown treasures were damaged.

*sigh* I swear, one of the hardest parts of being at college is being away from my cats for so long. Thank goodness for winter break!
