If it happens again, we will schedule an emergency vet trip. I think the excitement of Christmas is to blame.

I wouldn't worry about the tree so much - my cat Mikey was a fiend for plastic garland when he was younger, and it never seemed to hurt him (the big mystery is where he kept finding it, because I stopped putting any out!). I think the pennies may be more of a problem. :-\
You are only young once. After that you have to think up some other excuse.

Kitties are just as susceptible to "Oooo!  Shiny!" as the rest of us.  I personally have had to ban styrofoam from my home, because one of my cats has a pica-thing for it.  She also ate part of a mattress once.


That being said:

Dear cats:
I'm pretty sure you are not supposed to be showing signs of pack behavior like this.  Ganging up on the neighbor's cat when he came for a visit was not appropriate!

Dear Gretchen

You are not the boss of me!  Meowing at the top of your lungs while I'm on the phone with clients will not get you cuddles and brushes.  And stop sitting on your sister's head when you want her to move. That just gets her more cuddles with mama while you sit at my feet.

Boojums looks so cute. But for some reason, it was Luna that was cracking me up.  It's like she's oozing "I don't care."

That's sort of her normal condition.

Dear Willow,

You are diabetic.  I give you wet food and insulin twice a day.  PLEASE eat the food when I give it to you.  Having your blood sugar crash so that you go into insulin shock because you didn't eat your breakfast is NOT a Good Thing.  Kitties should not have a blood sugar reading of 38.  If we had not been at the vet's office you would have died.

Love, She Who Gives Scritches and He Who Pulls Tails

Dear Max:

We're very proud of you for losing those extra three pounds, thank you for staying out of your sister's food because she needs it far more than you do.  However, this does not make you any less clumsy than you were before.  Please refrain from leaping onto the headboard as you still don't seem to be able stick the landing all that well and I don't need to be surprised by having twelve pounds of confused tuxedo kitty falling on me in the middle of the night....again.

Dear Scuzzy:

You're an old lady, and very frail.  I understand why you like to bury yourself under piles of blankets.  However, I need you to understand that when I check on you, it's not to interrupt your sleep--it's to make sure I don't accidently crush you.  Oh, and to make sure you're still with us after that scare you gave me.

(Caveat: Grace is a goat)

Dear Grace,

Why did you decide that weaning your kids at two months was a brilliant way to deal with your mastitis I'll never understand. Couldn't you have waited until I was home to do this?

Love,
The girl who tries to milk you.d

Dear Baxter (we didn't like the name he came with, so we changed it)

Running circles around me while on a leash and in water won't end well for either of us.

Some people lift weights.  I lift measures.  It's a far more esoteric workout. - (Quoted from a personal friend)

MMSWM:  This is the cat version of this thread :) The dog thread is...somewhere else.  I fail at search on here.

My dear cat:
Moose, you are growing into your name.  You are only half-grown and you exceeded your mother in size two months ago.  Your tail is proportionately long.  For the love of Ceiling Cat, please make sure that when you sit on the toilet seat, you don't dangle your tail inside the bowl.
Love,
The human mommy.

You hung dangling, bright shiny, sparkling ornaments in the most enticing, "cat-provoking" display imaginable on purpose? >:D
I admit that having just one 19 y.o. cat left, and that cat is very 2-dimensional, has spoiled me.  She doesn't jump up on anything but the bed and that only because I put stairs up for her.  She doesn't chew on electrical cords or play with ornaments.  Midnight, Bootsie's sister that died a year ago, considered everything in the house to be her property and potentially a cat toy.
