We were late putting up the Christmas Monkey this year, but better late than never!
We have a monkey instead of a tree because, honestly, with four cats a tree is out of the question. I can just see Pippi climbing the boughs while Lucy bats off the ornaments and Torii chomps on the cord for the lights… and Bertie watches from afar, shaking his head in gentle disapproval.
Our grinchy panther-like house cat still likes to put himself square in the middle of things… probably wondering which presents are his.
Whether you celebrate Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Bodhi Day, Ramadan, Festivus, or just a long weekend, I hope it’s filled with monkeys, panthers and happiness.
