The Help

                 Hey Sunny! Come here, Daddy has some new kind of dangly toy for us!!



        It's nice and chewy, too!! HEY, he is putting it up on the wall where we can't reach! No fair!


                     I'll stand guard while you try to distract him by meowing and pawing.



Despite the wrong kind of assistance, the job turned out pretty good. Of course we have to check the wires periodically for bite marks. Good help is hard to find.

I love cats. They are cuddly, playful and so curious. I am never tired of watching them play.

How cute! Love this post Ginny. Your house is looking very festive with those pretty lights. Thanks for telling me about your childhood toy on my blog post. I really enjoyed reading about it.

I would have thought they could bring those lights down quite easily.Looks lovely.

I sure hope those kitties behave themselves! Pretty lights!

Cute little helpers Phil has there! I know all about those bite marks. We have had more than a few at our house. I just hope a kitty doesn't end up like that cat on Christmas Vacation!!

Haha. That is SO cute! Our cat came downstairs to examine the Christmas tree last night. She finally lay down under it next to the Santa Lucia doll. I wish I'd gotten a photo! Your cats are so cute. Love the way they look at the lights!

Aw so cute! Your kitties look fascinated by the lights! One of my boys loves to chew codes, so they should be somewhere he can't reach or must be covered in code protector.
The lights look beautiful and the decoration on the door is very pretty :-)

those cords can be irresistible. The lights look nice around the door

The lights are so pretty around the door. I'm not sure if that project would go as smoothly at our house. Bite marks are common around here, so common that I've been putting split tubing on most of our electrical cords.

Still seems dangerously close to cat level... ;)

Cats just love to chew wires (speaking from experience...)

The cats also want to lend a helping hand, Ginny! Lovely job done by Phil there!

You look liked you got a lot of help there - as long as he doesn't bite it!
