    Lupin, if you can be patient and wait a few weeks, Santa may bring something ethereal and delicate and so deliciously breakable that your soul will sing every time you remember smashing it into a million glittery pieces. Of course, this special gift may not be specifically for you, it may actually be for the Woman, but if it’s something really hideous, she might be willing to “share” it with you …

    My Gracie likes to get IN the tree. Luckily I have developed a near fool-proof system for that tragedy. I anchor the tree, in a corner of the living room, using fishing line and finishing nails.On the plus side, her green eyes peering out from the middle of the tree are a nice decoration themselves. I have long given up on breakables though.

    I’m honestly feeling bad for Lupin. I mean he does deserve this, he truly does, but the wideness of his eyes and his desperation gets me.

    This reminds me of going downstairs for breakfast in the mornings. Cat: I’m starbing so I’ll just sit here on the stair in front of you and swish my tail about a bit so you don’t dare take another step. Me: If you want to be fed, get out of the way!

    Many ornaments were retired when my current boys arrived 14 years ago. Like Lupin they never outgrew the carnage.

    When something fragile comes along, you can break it! And when the humans box it up, you can trip em’! Now Trip em’! Trip em’ good! Move forward! Run ahead! Get in their way! And trip em’ good!

    I have never had a cat bother my tree. Ever. And we’ve always been Dobe owners. Since they’re tailless, we’ve just never had any trouble. When my daughter, Thing 1, brought their Treeing Walker over one Christmas though, the poor dog had no clue he had a tail and I didn’t think about it when they brought him in. Such a Good Boi! But I had my tree covered with antique glass ornaments, he got too close, one swipe of that tail and he caught one of those ornaments. It flew a good 20 feet before it hit the wall in the next room and shattered. Poor guy looked so confused. Our dogs were sitting by the back door looking guilty and the cat was under the bed.

    For the past few years I have been putting the best ornaments, breakable and non-breakable on display over over doorways and the mantle. they are safer and they can be enjoyed more.

    She’s sparing the furkids a vet trip from cuts delivered by broken ornaments. Shards always find the most delicate part of the foot.

    It appears to be the end of an era, but I still don’t agree with Burt that there will be a break from breaking. Lupin will just break something else.

    Lennon and Ono’s working title for the song was “Give Shatterproof A Chance” but eventually they changed it to “Peace”.

    Not really, I just made that up.

    Knockin’ around the Christmas tree

    At the things cats like to bop

    Shatterproof hung where you can see

    For the carnage she tries to stop

    Knockin’ around the Christmas tree

    Tryin’ to save the Christmas bling

    Later we’ll see Lupin will try

    To do some sly tripping

    You will get a cringey sinkin’ feeling when you hear

    Baubles breaking, what a folly

    Smash! There goes the bright red holly

    Blockin’ around the Christmas tree

    Have a happy holiday

    Everyone glancin’ warily

    As they keep Lupin at bay

    (Well, they try, anyway)

    Meanwhile, Back on the Nile

    At the Artisans’ Studio

    Adobe Style: Do we have any broken pottery left? I’d like to make some Kintsugi decorations for the Yuletide Fest.

    Sophititi: And I’m planning a found object sculpture depicting beauty from broken things.

    Tabith-Isis I’m looking for some red dots. Do you have any here at the stuio?

    Arachna: I think we can find something for everyone. And I know who to ask. All together, now.

    We have to hang any ornament involving cotton balls or puffs pretty high on the tree to avoid feline attention.

    Dang it! When I click on a “Liked,” or “Replied to Your Comment” link, I’m getting a “404 Not Found” error message … so, if you posed a question to my comment and don’t get one, or added more info and I don’t come back and “like” it, that’s why!

    Many props to our GoComics IT folks for their work to keep this site up and running—we’re rooting for you! Thanks for keeping your sleeves rolled up.

    This is such an easy problem to solve, make an ornament out of lego’s and hang it low on the tree. When Lupin knocks it off it will come apart. Pick up the pieces put them back together again and hang it on the tree once again. No real damage done and Lupin will be a happy camper through out he Christmas Season.

    It seems to me there is a marketing niche for “breakable” ornaments that could be reassembled. When I was a kid there were toy “crash cars” like that. Other than that, bamboo ball ornaments would probably be a cat favorite. :)

    Oddly enough, we never really worried about Russel. He would just sleep under the tree. Bobbie the parakeet was the one who would pick ornaments off the tree, or knock stuff off the shelf or table. On day, he went along a spice rack holding my wife’s ceramic horses, picking each one up and dropping it on the floor. He killed 3 before I stopped him.

    my sister had a cockatiel who also liked to throw stuff around, until the day i got him drunk on Grand Marnier soaked fruit. (one piece from a fruit salad i had made) from then on, he was a good boy. side note to story – i was very uneducated about liqueurs at that time and called it grand mariner. my sister never laughed so hard.

    Holly (La Plume) Stein does not appear interested in the tree, at least so far. MrrrCavity is not a big climber, and 8-ball is old enough that he only climbs to get somewhere he really wants to be—even though he was the original “Tenzing Norcat.”

    Does anybody else find the big blue banner ominous? Especially considering it says the changes are coming in Fall 2023 but the link says Summer 2023. They can’t even get the date right, but they’re going to revamp the whole site? Saints preserve us—and preserve all our past and future comment sections.

    I stop putting up decorations when I have pets. Half of my childhood decorations I had saved, got destroyed the first year we had cats and a dog. When I was growing up, we never had pets, because my Dad said, “NO PETS!” So, when I moved out on my own and had my Christmas decorations, I never thought about my pets destroying them. Lesson learned. I still don’t put up Christmas decorations. I don’t have family or friends coming over to the house anyways. I get my Christmas cheer from the endless Hallmark Christmas Movies….LOL

    Why don’t we just hang catnip mice from our trees. Every year when tree-decorating time comes around, we could just sweep them out from under our stoves, refrigerators, and bookcases, and hand them on the tree again.
