Christmas is on its way… and I'm Still just the Cat Here
Just listen to the way they talk about it: "Christmas is just around the corner". There's no-one at all around the corner! Ilsebill made a point of checking, and as a cat, there's no question she has sharper eyes. Before you know it they'll be hauling fir branches into the house as though they were about to build a nest. But that's not what they are for - instead, they stuff them full of candles. And light them, too! That's dangerous, surely! Not to mention the smell of burning, which is unbearable. So what do humans have such big noses for, anyway, Ilsebill asks herself. Ilsebill asks herself many other questions before Christmas is finally over. For example, what's the point of sticking a tree in a room, especially one that falls over the minute you want to play with one of the shiny baubles dangling from it? The only thing you can't complain about is the salmon on Christmas Eve. Admittedly, it wasn't meant for Ilsebill, but although humans can get themselves worked up pretty fast, they also calm down just as quickly. Ilsebill knows a thing or two about that.
