Aby-a-Day – November 29: “You do not need to belong to the cat for a long time to realize the main thing that cats like to do is to wrap theirselves up in mystery, perhaps only except for a hobby of jumbling up everything that is in order”

Jacoby loves to help.

He especially loves to help me with Christmas. As soon as I unzipped the tree bag, he was inside it.

I mean, really inside it.

I don’t know what it is about the tree. He just adores it. He sleeps underneath it, patrols the presents…he’s just all about the Christmas.

I found his mistletoe hat while unpacking all the decorations and put it on him. It didn’t stop him from helping with the tree one bit.

It just made him look more festive.

Jake is very thorough when it comes to holiday decoration quality control.

As you saw yesterday, he also helped me set up the tree.

I think this was a lighting preview, because the tree wasn’t plugged in yet.

Jake was a very helpful boy!

Meanwhile, Angel…well, Angel’s a little less into the holiday spirit than Jake is…
