Blue and Cuddles are napping the afternoon away on their prison bed. Else I might have to play the goalie at the door or chase them down through the rest of the house.

True, one of the principal functions on any kitten’s job description is to find the toy in anything that moves. And since every other kitten we’ve raised has been content to break a ball on the tree, I’ve always hung the most worn-out balls ready to be trashed on the low branches.

This pair must have thought they hit the kitten toy lottery when we decorated the house for Christmas this year. Let’s just say, they obviously have no intention of making Santa’s nice list. And as for that implicit agreement involving breakable decorations, I’ve warned Susan that our kittens would likely consider the ceramic nativities, the snowman and Santa collections, the trees, and just about every other holiday trapping to be fair game.

We’ve given them several chances since Thanksgiving, and they’ve never gone long before tag team wrestling the kitchen table tree, grabbing one of the snowmen hanging from the sewing machine, breaking another ball from one of the trees, or getting into other holiday mischief.

So now with just over a week to go, they’ve lost all chance at any further parole hearings. Maybe by next Christmas they’ll at least have learned to play Christmas when everyone’s asleep.
