While Hulk has already documented the cats’ favorite activity at his parents’ house, here are some pictures of Loki’s second-favorite activity (at least, this time of year): climbing and hanging out in their Christmas tree.
The living room of the house has a very high ceiling, and they have a tall (fake) tree – at least 8 or 9 feet. Loki would climb about halfway up and just hang out, all 14 long lean pounds of him. Once or twice, he climbed even higher and then the tree wobbled and shook, not built to withstand that much cat. I had to pull him out a few times because while his tree-climbing instincts are still there, his tree-descending instincts leave something to be desired. It was OK for him to hurl hhimself out of the tree from 4 feet up but I got a little nervous when he was peeking out and trying to figure out how to jump out from 6 feet.
