My Bad Christmas Cat

Who, me? #christmas #cats

:::Who, me???:::

He only LOOKS innocent.  Trust me.

Meet Quaker. He's a good kitty that I got a few years ago the week before Thanksgiving. His cage had a warning sign at the shelter. It said, "THIS CAT BITES."

Most of the time, he's a sweetheart. He snuggles, nudges, rubs, purrs, and tries to lay on your head pillow to get attention.

Last week, he SCRATCHED the baby's cheek, though. And that's a NO-NO around here. I chased him down the stairs with a belt and caught the end of him with a pop as he quickly squished his huge self out of the cat door to the garage in horrified retreat from the raving lunatic mama and her bleeding little man-cub.

I doubt he'll ever do that again.

Dogs might not be smart enough, but old kitties CAN learn new tricks.

You are right...he looks so innocent. Beautiful photo. We have found that a clean spray bottle filled with plain water is very effective for teaching old cats new tricks.

He's a pretty cat, but looks a bit ornery ;) I guess time will tell if he's "learned" a lesson.

LOL! This happened to Bram when he was a baby - the cat got him just below his eyebrow. I was a lunatic! My teen was afraid for the cat's life. I am right there with you sista!

We don't have our cats any longer but cats and Christmas trees are not a good mix....add toddlers too it and it's too much for me.

I enjoyed looking over your blog! I think you might be interested in the story behind the homeschooling movement. You can find a shortened version of this story at

I hope you will look into it, as it is the story of my mom, and what she went through to homeschool her own children!

And yes, I have a cat, so I know just how "innocent" they can be!

Thank you.
