Catmas Tree

Looks like everyone is putting up Christmas decorations but SS has decided against putting up a tree because of my destructive tendency. Instead we are featuring a Catmas Tree:

This is a painting by the surrealist artist Michael Bridges, whose earlier cat paintings I have posted some time ago. There are lots more of his paintings at his gallery website, with a special section on cats. Do go and have a look, they are very interesting.

The humans took all of our fun away too! The Christmas tree is always in a room where we can't get to it! We cats should protest!

Congrats on your win at the Great Raffle! Thanks to friends like you, we were able to raise a little money for the Cat Blogosphere!

Tanti baci,

That's a cool painting!

We only have a very tiny, artificial Christmas tree. My mom's sister is terribly allergic to real trees, and can't breathe if she's indoors with a real tree for too long, so they've always had artificial trees. My humans bought a small one to use in Munich, since they are only here three years and since their Canadian one has pre-installed lights that don't work with the European power.

I dunno, that looks pretty realistic to me. Cat climbs tree, gets all tangled in lights...oh yeah!

We do have a tree--but it's small and it's fake.

It is a lovely painting I think.

We like the painting - though turning kitties into Catmas trees seems like a not nice thing to do.

Pablo said...

I would never stand still long enough for someone to put lights on me. I would also bite and scratch VERY HARD anyone who attempted to do so.

It sounds to me like you have an evil alter ego that would destruct a tree. I just like to snooze under mine. Mommy sprays it with Bitter Apple so I don't chew.
