Luna has two favorite weeks of the year: Christmas and New Year.
She loves the Christmas tree: garlands, sparkling lights, gift boxes and their rustling bows.
She’s not one of those cats that try to drop a tree: she walks sedately under it, sleeps on boxes, but never tries to climb up.
After all, then next year the owners will abandon the Christmas tree for Christmas.
Every year, when the time comes to remove the garlands and put the tree in the pantry, Luna sees it off with a sad look.
“She seemed to be wondering why we should do this,” says the owner.
Luna has already celebrated Christmas 17 times.
The owners realized that they would not forgive themselves if their pet did not see the Christmas tree at least once.
Shawn Meyer decided to turn every remaining day of Luna into a holiday.
They already had a “cat tree” – a construction of scratching posts, shelves and houses. In fact, this is almost a real tree, because the cat’s house is densely entwined with ivy.
And for this New Year, friends just gave a garland of “rainbow curtains”.
The garland lay and waited in the wings – and the hour has come. While Luna slept, her house was magically transformed.
Luna is already a little deaf, so she did not bat an eye when the owners decorated her house with a sparkling rainbow garland.
When the cat woke up, she was completely delighted.
The surprise worked!
The cat house became a branch of a Christmas tree: there was greenery, a place for hide and seek, and a bewitching flicker of colored lights.
Meyer says that Luna really appreciated the gift: now she hardly leaves her hiding place.
