Thursday 13 - Cat Ornaments - Part I
Our Christmas tree is decorated with an eclectic mix of ornaments with a high percentage of cats as well as a good number of birds. We'll examine some of the cat ornaments as part of today's Thursday 13.
Most of the cat ornaments are gifts. Here is the first in a series of embroidered stuffed cats handmade by Mom's dear friend Annie from college. This was made for the Christmas of 1978 and combined two of Mom's favorites, cats and the color green. Annie and her family came all the way from Wyoming to visit us this past summer.

And here's the tree, an 8-ft Fraser fir from the Mount Rogers area of Virginia:
Most of the birds are in the top of the tree and the cats are concentrated more at the bottom.
