Oh, Rain, that is so sad about your cat--7 is very young.
I stopped putting tinsel on my tree years ago, but every Christmas it turns up in the corners--I call it Christmas dandruff. Quite dangerous for animals, particularly young ones. Years ago my son had a pet rabbit that would chew on the tree--we had to put chicken wire around it, and it looked quite odd.
Wind warning up overnight, with the possibility of wet snow--its been cold and sunny all day, so the woodpile has been replenished, batteries bought for the book light, and I'm settling in with my glass of wine and my nicotine gum. Still down to 5 smokes a day, but it's not getting any easier.
