Earlier today (well, yesterday by now:  I’ve been burning the midnight candle on my research paper), I came back from the church Christmas sale with a gaily-decorated basket filled with miniature ornaments for my tiny tabletop tree, which Ophelia has taken a great liking to.  She immediately wished to lay claim to the little glass ornaments and their threads, as well as the tree itself.

I discouraged her from that; indeed, I started putting the ornaments on the tree, which she saw as a great betrayal of her catlike interests.  However, as cats often do, she had the last say in the matter.  Because once the basket was empty of ornaments, she jumped in and made it her own. And it was such a perfect fit, and so fitting, that I hadn’t the heart to dislodge her! 🙂
