I sense before I see,
of this year's Christmas tree,
seemingly stalk ghosts
of time past,
look through me
with intensity barbarous,
and I with red ribbon in hand,
decide feline portraits will wait
'til wild beasts repent wicked ways,
their ancient spirits soothed
with a bowl of warm milk.

I can't remember a Christmas without a cat. Casper was by dear companion throughout my childhood and early marriage. The image above is of Casper and me, Christmas 1982, my senior year of high school.
This will be linked with Friday Flash 55 - (link up Thursday after 8pm).
Below are the two cats I have now. I just read that evergreen's can be toxic to cats! We've had a live Christmas tree for years! I don't buy Poinsettias anymore as they're supposedly toxic as well. So far my cats don't see to be nibbling on the tree and I am keeping the area vacuumed.
We are celebrating our Christmas Saturday, December 22, due to work schedules. All six children are home and that is really all I want/need for Christmas.
My dear blogging pals, I wish each and every one of you love and peace this Christmas. Happy Holidays.
