Monsterizing Is Tough!

Standard

CLEANINGBANNER

It’s MONSTER DAY of course since it’s Friday but I was watching Mom today and I realize that at Christmas, there’s a whole different way the house gets monsterized!    Why?  Well, there are decorations all over the place and wrapped presents under the tree so the MONSTER has to be careful where it goes or ELSE.   Disaster.   Mom is very careful now that there’s a train and presents under our tree – she gets CLOSE but not TOO CLOSE.   At least our tree is artificial and she doesn’t have to try and vacuum up all the pine needles from a tree that’s drying out in the house.  Whew!

No dry needles with THIS tree!

No dry needles with THIS tree!

Then of course we have the other parts of the house that get monsterized but they aren’t as DANGEROUS as right around the tree.   Mom just has one other spot to watch out for and that’s where she keeps her Santa collection which is ON THE FLOOR in the living room.

Snowmen on a shelf - and one cat!

It was safely UP last year on a little shelf in the powder room but this year it’s on the floor in front of the TV!

She’s added to the collection since this shot too – like with about four more snowguys – EXTRA DANGER.

I tried to convince her to just skip monsterizing until after the holiday……………but would she listen?  Heck no.   She will listen to be sometimes though – like when I tell her I’ve used my litterbox and I need her assistance, or when I need some treats and I’m screaming at the top of my lungs to get them………..THEN she listens.  She can’t HELP but listen.  I may be little but I’ve got a pair of lungs on me!

Not me but it COULD be!

Not me but it COULD be!

Speaking of Christmas, we did a whole lot of “email” holiday cards this year because – well – we’re CHEAP!   HAHAHA    Just kidding.   This is our Christmas card for this year though – if you’d like to have a copy of it – please feel free to copy it.    We love all of you to bits – you’re our friends – and we are hoping you have a really wonderful holiday……………..just do me a favor – KEEP AN EYE ON THE VACUUM CLEANER!

    • Easy I promise to let that train go around JUST FOR YOU!!! I just love this train we have – it makes all kinds of cool train noises – “woo woo” and “chug chug” and a bell clangs too!

  1. I bet those little snow guys get worried when they see the monster approaching. My mum has sent out loads of email cards as well and still has a few more to send. She has sent out lots of snail mail cards too.

    • Hi Flynn! Mom is careful with the snowmen for sure………they have carrot noses which are tempting for the monster to suck right up! I’m keeping an eye out! We are doing mostly ecards this year – postage is just so darned expensive any more!!!

      Love and Hugs, Sammy

  3. I think your Mom should listen to you and skip the vacuuming, it would be awful to suck up a snowman or a present. I love the collection of Santa snowmen. I have the same kitty that is on the left 🙂 XO

    • Mom vacuumed today in spite of my objections. She really INSISTED……she had cleaned out my toy box/wagon AGAIN and discovered that most of the stuff with feathers had “feather stuff” flying around loose. I guess after time those feathers kind of disintegrate – made quite a mess but NOW my toy wagon is CLEAN and nice! All my crocheted toys are RIGHT ON TOP TOO! 😉

  4. Sammy I’m feeling your pain today. There are painters all over inside my house painting our new windows. Mom and I are sequestered in my blog office for the duration. You’d be proud of me I’m being good…every so often I break into a chorus of Don’t fence me in.
    Sincerely Madi your bfff

    • That DOES come in handy – I hadn’t thought of it that way…..Mom says I shouldn’t learn any of “THOSE WORDS” she tends to say while monsterizing so it’s good it doesn’t have a muffler on it!

        • We all follow more and more blogs every year and make more and more friends – before you know it, it costs a fortune to do snail mail cards!!!! Anyway, it’s fun to hear from friends even if it’s once a year at holiday time isn’t it.

          Love, Uncle Sammy

    • Oh wolf herring sounds like a most interesting fish! I’ll have to google that one!!!!! Bacon strips from the tree sounds interesting but I think I’d rather smell balsam than bacon if you know what I mean!

    • YES my Mom said “NO” to me once and that was enough when I was a kitten. I just love lying UNDER the tree now but there’s no room since Dad sets the choo choo under there now!

      Stay OUT of time out Cupcake!

    • I have to guard our tree very carefully and closely – it’s up against a wall so no sucky thing can get behind it either BUT it’s the stuff in FRONT and UNDER that I’m worried about! Keep watch over things CK!

    • Mom says she thinks it’s some kind of minor miracle because as a kitten I was all over the place but I NEVER climbed the Christmas tree! Never – didn’t even whack an ornament off of the tree! I was happy to lie UNDER the tree and snooze………Amazing isn’t it?

      Love, Sammy
