Friday Videos Have One Last Dose of Holiday Festivities

Gry, our Norwegian Friday Videos Correspondent (Hei, Gry! Tusen takk!), has sent a few videos that'll give you one last dose of adorableness and Christmas cheer. I'm sure many of you are taking down the holiday decorations soon, if you haven't already. Perhaps you need some cats to help:


That made me think of all the trees I've seen in cat households where the decorations start about 2' up the tree. 

This next video is “How to Wrap a Cat for Christmas,” featuring Flippy, who I believe may no longer be among us, but surely is known on heaven and earth as The Most Mellow and Awesome Cat: 



I watched that video in a state of total trepidation – if I tried that with one of my cats, I'd be unable to type or eat or do things like sniff for weeks while I recovered. But Flippy was all, “Yeah, whatever. It's cool.” Clearly no distress there. 

And finally, for you dog people out there, here's what happens “when you combine two husky puppies, a winter wonderland, and a slow motion camera:” 


I hope your weekend is filled with adorableness, bestest furriest friends, excellent decorations, and good music, too. And books. But that's a given.

    I would like to take this opportunity to thank my cat Kirby, who we adopted 4 years ago as a fully grown shelter cat, for never having any inclination to do anything more aggressive with our Christmas tree than sleep under it when the lights are on. That is a major source of relief for me every December. If only we could be so lucky when we have kids. My mom had a whole separate box of “kid-proof” decorations, mostly soft things made of felt and the construction paper crafts we made at pre-school, that went on the bottom three feet of the tree when we were little.

    When my kids were small we put the tree inside a playpen. I then wrapped the outside of the playpen with Christmas paper to make it festive. Sometimes the paper didn’t last too long. ;-) I have five children, so we had a tree in a playpen for years!

    We’ve had to discourage our cats from climbing our tree. One used to enjoy sleeping in it. This year we had a table top tree and they left it alone for some reason. We always put non-breakable ornaments at the bottom. We found that our big dogs and their wagging tails to be more destructive than the cats, though!

    I mean to add, the playpen made a nice safe place to put the wrapped presents, too!

    I totally recommend the playpen thing to all my families with toddlers.
