Jingle Bells All the Way!

A Poem to Make You Weep (cos it's jolly awful!)
by Old Kitty

Here is my Christmas tree
In its pot, all happy!
Decked in lights and not much else
Now all it needs are some presents!



Charlie says: I sleep in awkward pose and wait for Santa.


Bloggie friends! Charlie and I wish you all a most beautiful Holiday Season!

Poem is jolly, tree is festive, and Charlie is waiting!

klahanie said...

Ah yes, a tree and presents. My human wishes someone would actually come and see our Christmas tree, Maybe this year. Anyway, Gary has me, Penny the Jack Russell dog and modest internet star, to keep him company.
And may you and Charlie has a wonderful 'Boxing Day Eve' :)
Pawsitive wishes and doggy kisses, Penny xx

Your little Christmas tree is really cute. It's original and you'll have it all year round ;)
Is Charlie getting some gifts?
Happy Christmas to you and Charlie!

The Golden Eagle said...

I think the tree looks great. :)

Happy Holidays!

Mr Puddy said...

Your Christmas Tree is so pretty : )
and Charlie !!! That's smart spot to wait for Santa !!! I wonder what you wish for Christmas !!!

mshatch said...

That's the best way to have a tree; get a live one and when it gets too big, plant it.

Wendy aka Quillfeather said...

And a very Merry Christmas to you and Charlie too!

Hope Santa showers you both with gifts :)

Has Charlie bothered with any of the ornaments?

We all wish you the best Holiday too!!!

Deniz Bevan said...

Happy Christmas to you too! From us and the two guys, Frodo and Sam.

The Chair Speaks said...

That's one of the nice Christmas tree we've ever seen. It was lovingly decorated. A well-deserving nap after a great job in decorating it, Charlie.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you and your mom.

Deborah said...

I love your tree! Is that the same tree as last year?
It's a nice tree for Charlie to sleep under or on top.
Here's a story, but true, I'm at church and I'm a Deacon so I am collecting the offering ....well, isn't my friend who lives in England visiting in Mass and was in church! His son goes to our church and his parents fly over often. So I stop everything and give him a big hug and kiss...Say welcome back...and so on...people are looking me...I want to say...excuse me if I'm happy, right? It's nice to have friends from England. In person and in blogville!
That's all!

Hi Charlie, I'm digging those black spots on your ears.
I hope Santa brings you 365 toys, one for each day :)

Helena said...

May Charlie and you get lots of presents from Santa. And a visit from Daniel Craig (after he's finished visiting me).

Merry Christmas

Adorable cat. :3

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

Your Christmas tree is perfect! I don't even have one this year as i celebrated an early Christmas in Colorado with my children and grandchildren...just flew home tonight! :)

Summer Ross said...

I hope the memories you have of this holiday season are wonderful enough to carry you into the new year.

Nas Dean said...

I wish you and Charlie a Merry Christmas and happy holidays. Have a fun New Year.

Donna Hosie said...

Happy Christmas!

Fuzzy Tales said...

We love your tree, and especially that it's potted and can be planted outdoors. :-)

Happy Yule and Merry Christmas to you, Jennifer, and your whole family. Have a wonderful holiday!

Brigid said...

Lovely poem and tree:)
Wishing you a wonderful Christmas x

Hilary Melton-Butcher said...

Hi Old Kitty .. Charlie sure knows what's good for him - patiently waiting by sleeping the time away - lucky for some!

The tree looks great .. I hope the chimney is clean so presents don't bring the soot down with them ..

Cheers and have a lovely Christmas and New Year yourselves .. Charlie will be the most spoilt I suspect!

Happy days ahead .. cheers Hilary

Dave King said...

False pretenses! That's not bad enough to make anyone weep. I laughed along WITH it. Have a great time.

Creepy Query Girl said...

Merry Christmas to you! Hope you and Charlie both have a fantastic holiday:)

The Monkeys said...

We loved your poem! We have been so slack about blogging that we don't know if we'll be back before the holidays, so we wish you the best Christmas ever!

Marg said...

That is such a cute little tree. What a good idea to get it in a pot, then you can plant it outside. Good boy Charlie for not taking off the decorations on the tree. Take care and we wish you some really Happy Holidays too.

Hannah and Lucy said...

Thank you for the Christmas greetings - we are purring that you have a wonderful Christmas filled with prezzies and laughter. We hope Santa is bringing Charlie lots of whappy toys.
Happy Christmas to you and Charlie and have a little sippy or two of something warming!
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

Our Christmas tree is listing to starboard. It looks like it's already tired of Christmas and can' wait to get planted.
I can tell Charlie is excited.

Madeleine said...

Christmas tree in happy pot
Will there be some gifts or not?
Charlie lies in curved repose
Hoping upon hope that Santa knows.

Happy Christmas!

Lydia Kang said...

Have a wonderful holiday, to you and Charlie!

LTM said...

ahh... LOL! A poem to make you week b/c it's so bad. *snort* I LOVE your "bad" poems. And I love Charlie's awkward pose. Merry Christmas!!! <3

Hart Johnson said...

*giggles* Bad poetry is the only kind I can write, so I wept with joy...

Lola Sharp said...

Awww, I rather liked your little poem and I love your little tree!
Cats do sleep in some awkward, bendy, twisty positions. My cat loves to sleep in a sink bowl, the weirdo.

I wish you a very Merry Christmas. <3
And may your 2012 be your best year ever!

Love always,
Lola

Katnip Lounge said...

Meowy Catmas, Old Kitty and Charlie! We don't think Santa is a poet so you are sure to get some presents under your little tree.

Angie Paxton said...

Right backatcha! Happy Holidays!

cleemckenzie said...

Seems like you have one very lovely black and white present already. Sweet cat and I'll bet he doesn't climb your tree to swat at the decorations like mine do! Kids are sometimes easier during the holidays.

Merry Christmas and Happy 2012.

the writing pad said...

And the same to you Old Kittie with (jingle) bells on :-)
Poem is superb - tree looks lovely - hope santa brings you and Charlie all you could wish for (not sure how Daniel Craig is at shimmying down chimneys - but it's a nice vision to conjure with!)
Have a good one!
All best
Karla

Clarissa Draper said...

Beautiful.

And really how do pets manage to stay comfortable in such awkward poses.

Theresa Milstein said...

What a cute tree, Old Kitty!

And look at Charlie all stretchy. He must be an excellent duster, if he didn't shed.

Enjoy your last 2 weeks of December. Hope you get lots of good presents for that tree.

Medeia Sharif said...

Awesome tree, Old Kitty.

TK and Squashies said...

Oh Charlie, you not looks so awkward to us! This looks like a fine pose to waits fur Sandy Paws. You tells your mommy that me likes her poem very much. Specially the part about needing presunts.
Everyone needs presunts dis time of year.
Love, TK

Margo Berendsen said...

"Decked in lights and not much else" - smile! (though you should have at least a couple dangly ornaments for Charlie to play with!)

Father Tom said...

Love your tree and wish you the happiest of holidays!

Carolina Valdez Miller said...

Happy Christmas, my dear! What a lovely living tree. I think it's just perfect. A lovely place for Charlie to curl up.

That is a fine looking tree, Charlie!
I do not think I could eat it, because it is too pretty.
Happy Tuesday!

Hilary said...

Alex and I wish you both a very happy holiday and a purrfect 2012!

We think Santa Claws may trip over you. But that's good. Then he'll spill all his loot and you can rip into all of them!

Patsy said...

Happy Christmas, Kitty and Charlie!
Hope it's all you want it to be.
You tree is twinkly and bright
I think it looks just right.

Soggibottom said...

Brave or stupid :-) I never thought of that :-) HEY CHARLIE, CATNIP BABES XXXXXXXXX
Lots of love :-) X X X

Cynthia Chapman Willis said...

That tree is almost as cute as Charlie.
Wishing you a merry Christmas and a very happy new year!

Roy said...

Likes the live tree. We had one but it wouldn't live when we planted it outside in the spring. Too big to keep inside .... oh well.

Here's to a great and happy Christmas celebration, and to those celebrating another way, here's to THEIR great and happy Holiday.

Hope the entire week is a huge success for one and all. Be careful on the roads, be safe, stay warm and dry, and come see us at Five Oaks Manor if you are in the neighborhood.

We are: Lisa, Roy Sr, and the cats; Buddy Bear, Ms Princess, Rowdy, MikiCato, Ms Smokey, and Tegar .... the 6 Mouskateers of Five Oaks Manor, SouthWoodsUSA.
