Cat Convos: Where’s the Tree?


Me: You guys sound like a herd of elephants.

Loki: You said I need more exercise.

Hiyu: I DO NOT sound like an elephant. It’s the twins, not me.

Me: You guys are making me dizzy with all this gallivanting about.

Hiyu: We certainly aren’t gallivanting. That means wandering aimlessly.Kuir and Loki over the dragon

Kuri: Yeah, we’re running full speed, cornering fast, testing our speed and reflexes.

Me: Dare I ask why?

Kuri: We’re on a hunt for the tree.

Loki: We know it has to be here somewhere.

Me: We don’t have a tree yet.

Kuri: The Christmas boxes have been here a week.

Hiyu: We’re going to keep playing Cat Conspiracy Theory until it’s up.

Me: I thought you guys were having a blast playing The Floor Is Lava.

Loki: It helps having different stacks of boxes everywhere, but Hiyu still wins.150208-70D-4647

Me: Why do you guys want a tree? You aren’t allowed to touch it.

Loki: We like to lurk around the edges. That’s not really touching it.

Kuri: I like the smell of a tree in the house. Especially now that The Hill got rid of all its houseplants.

Me: I decided you three were more than enough work. The houseplants all went to good homes.

Loki: I miss them.

Kuri: She gave them away because you ate them.

Loki: I only took a few nibbles.

Me: You’ll get a tree next week.

Kuri: Why do we have to wait so long?

Loki: You hid it, we’re going to find it. Loki

Hiyu: What’s the point of unpacking the ornaments if you don’t have a tree to hang them on?

Me: We’re going to share the good fortune we have as much as possible. We’ve gathered too much of the detritus of living in our consumer culture. We’re going to be giving a lot of things to charities, including all these excess ornaments.

Loki: Are you going to give away our toys?

Hiyu: Are you going to get rid of my perching places? What about my hiding places?

Me: Don’t worry. You guys will always have a surplus of everything, however that doesn’t mean we can’t share with those who do not have as much.


Kuri: They can have my old jingle balls, but not our catnip.

Loki: Did you give away our tree?”

Me: I told you it’s coming next week. I suggest you ask our readers where they think we should donate all of this stuff.

Kuri: Okay. Hey Readers, what are good places to donate our ornaments and toys and all the other stuff we’re going to give away?

Hiyu: Question asked. Now back to Cat Conspiracy Theory. Ready, set, go!

Me: We would love to hear your suggestions of best places to donate.

Cat Convos: The Floor is Lava


Hiyu: What are you doing?

Me: Sorting my books

Hiyu: You’re making huge piles of them. Hey, guys, look at the gigantic stacks of books in here.

Loki: Why? Why are you changing things?20110905-60d-0209-small

Me: Because I’m a bibliophile. Every now and then, I’ve bought so many books that they need to be sorted and integrated on the shelves.

Kuri (in awe): Those towers of books are so tall.

Hiyu: The floor is lava!

Hiyu gracefully jumps to the top of a large stack of books.

Me: Oh, no! Stop! Don’t!

Kuri: Here I go.

Crash! Thud! Boom!

Kuri: I didn’t do that.

Loki: I’m on the cat tree.

Hiyu jumps to an empty shelf. The floor is lava! The floor is lava!

Loki: I’m safe on the cat tree.Five books

Kuri jumps on the shelf with Hiyu.

Kuri: Where’s the stack of my poetry books?

Me: They’re already on the shelf.

Hiyu: I see epic fantasy. Watch me go.

Hiyu successfully makes the leap.

Loki: I’m still safe on the tree.

Kuri: I’ll take that stack of mythology.

Crash! Thud! Boom!

Me: How about we move some chairs and a sheet into the living room and you can play the floor is lava in there.

All three cats jump onto the chair I’m moving.


Eventually the books will be sorted
