It’s a Test

Salem scurries up to me, “Hey, Suki. There’s a cool tree in the house to climb on. Come on.”

I nod my head slowly, “Ah, the test has begun.”

“What do you mean?”

“Well, this time every year the humans bring a tree into the house, and we aren’t allowed to climb on it. It’s a test.”

He stares at me, “Really?”

“Yep. Then they dangle shiny objects on strings on the tree, and you can’t touch those either. If you make it a whole month without doing it, a guy named Santa breaks into the house one night and leaves you a present. If you don’t pass the test, you get nothing.”

“That seems mean.”

“Well, that’s the rules.”

He crouches down, assuming a lunge position, “Okay. I call dibs on the first branch.”

I hold up my paw, “Weren’t you listening? We won’t get a present if we don’t pass.”

He grins. “I figured those rules don’t apply once it’s been peed on.”

  1. Hehe!!! I was sure Bucky was going to lift his leg and pee on his first Christmas tree in his new home, but apparently he hasn’t. I guess that means Santa will be bringing him something nice. Hope your kitties survive tree season.
