Why do we Even HAVE Cats?

Our cats have been making us nuts lately. They sit in our houseplants, tear around the house, climb the Christmas tree, and one of them managed to knock down a tin of cookies, turning them into crumbs. Things always seem worse around the holidays, as I'm sure other pet owners can attest to. I will often cry out in exasperation, "Why do we even HAVE cats? So I wanted to take a moment to think about why we keep these fuzzy menaces...

Rosie is our cozy cuddler.

Hobgoblin flattens the boxes for recycling.

Merlin begs on command.

Dusty is a wonderful neck warmer.

Romeo sleeps on his back. (He's using Dusty as a pillow here.)

And if any of this has caused you to chuckle, you know we keep them around for the laughs as well!

lol, our KitKat sits around my neck like Dusty does. He only does it with me though, no-one else in the family!

Our two youngest cats, Rose and Hugo, enjoy destroying the Christmas tree. They've also attempted unwrapping presents by biting off the wrapping paper. The older cats finally quit messing with anything. The bunnies are not allowed out in the house anymore because they destroy EVERYTHING (Furniture, drywall, wires, presents, papers, books, pencils, toys, clothing...). I let them play out on the deck now, but they've chewed and destroyed several wooden railings now. I much prefer cat antics to bunnies! Merry Christmas!

Cats are the reason small handguns were invented. :)

I think Scribbles purpose in life is to make me more patient. The pictures are great, Tina. Love, Mom

Apparently, I keep Jack around to use as bait.
Only thing is - I don't know what I was fishing for.
