The Last Straw

Tucker & Tanner Under MY TREE!
Hi Pals,

You have met my two cousin kitties before - Tucker and Tanner - who live with my sisfur and SIL.  Well, the other day SIL sent M this picture.   Now M goes nuts over these two guys cuz she loves them and thinks they are sooooo cute.   I have to admit they are pretty nice too, as long as they leave MY stuff alone.

This is the final straw - they are sitting under MY Christmas Tree.  When we moved out of the house, sisfur told M she'd go thru the closet where all the Christmas stuff was and grab our artificial tree and some ornaments, etc.   That is the tree sisfur took back to their house.    She then bought us this tree:

Pffft I can't even sit under this little, puny thing.  Meanwhile the two T cats are living it up under MY tree!  What do I do pals?

M says we really don't have room for the other tree.   I say get rid of a recliner!!!    I guess it's too late for this year, but my two cousins under MY Christmas Tree is the last straw!   We have a year to figure this out and they'd better come up with a solution.

Mario

P.S.  M is asking for help.  The top picture was taken with a cell phone.  Thus it came out side ways when it was emailed to us.   It appeared side ways when I posted it to blogger.   I then had to crop half of the picture off the top in order for it to post correctly.   Anyone know of a way aorund this problem.   In cropping it we lost the top portion of the tree - would have been a better picture if we could have had the top on the tree.   I'd appreciate any tips you might have.?

I really am thankful that M and D and I are all together.  Therefore, we're joining Brian's Thankful Thursday Blog Hop.  We are very thankful Brian has continued keeping the blog hop up after Pepi
Smart Dog had to take a breather from it.

I think there is something you can do to rotate the picture so it is upright. Maybe under edit. Anyway, looks like those two kitties are enjoying the tree. You all have a very Merry Christmas.

Well, if you can't have the big tree Mario at least you know the family cuties will take good care of it! Merry Christmas dear friends. Thanks for joining the Thankful Thursday Blog Hop!

I am sorry they get to enjoy your tree and they don't. I don't have any tips about the photo cropping either. Your little tree is still pretty though.

Mario, it totally looks to us as if your original tree would fit atop the table where that little one is. We say, you tell Tanner and Tucker that your tree is just on loan for 2016 and YOU want it back! A kitty really needs a tree he can lie under. Mom has had the problem with photos as well and does not know how to correct it. Sorry. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Angel Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

Mario, I hope you get your tree back for next year or one that meets with your approval! I think with the picture, you may need to first rotate it since you said it came to you sideways. You could then crop it from there if needed. It's always best to crop using preset dimensions, at least that's what I've found. If that doesn't make sense, you can e-mail it to me and I'll see if I can play with it (toriacat@yahoo.com). Tucker and Tanner sure are cute. I bet that tree skirt is comfy to kitties.

You are right, Mario - that is not fair that they have your tree and you're stuck with such a little one! Your humans need to be more resourceful about furniture arrangement so you can have the tree you deserve.

Katie Isabella said...

You are right to be peeved Mario. BUT they simply didn't give it sufficient thought I am sure or that would be there for you to lay under right this minute. BUT at least the Two T's are enjoying this and they are grateful.

Oh Mario that is AWFUL!! You need a tree of your own that goes on the floor so you can sleep under it! As for the photo, yes someone mentioned you can rotate it...you can upload the photo to whatever photo editor you use and just rotate it. xoxo (I upload from my phone to the computer, save it on the computer and then I upload to the photo editor). I use www.ribbet.com the most. catchatwithcarenandcody

Oh Mario.. you needs a tree you can sit under... I know you can use the recliner for the tree stand and then you can sit on the recliner.
Mom? What do you mean you can't put a tree on the recliner?
oh it might fall down... but I like fall down..

maybe if the Mom makes a flat Mario, at least flat Mario can sit under the little tree??

Mario, If you haven't already figured it out, email me the original photo and I'll fix it for you (indulgedfurries @ gmail.com)

I think you must figure out a way to get your Christmas tree back. It's only for a few weeks that your living room might be crowded, but it's worth it.

M here again. I did rotate it first in my picture manager. The problem was when I posted it to blogger, it remembered the original settings from the camera - I guess anyway. It would not stay rotated. Maybe there is nothing that can be done about it. Thanks everyone for trying.

They do look very happy under their nice big tree! No fair!

William's Kith & Kin said...

But at least you have a tree to look at, Mario. We aren't trusted to have a tree at all!

The Island Cats said...

Oh Mario! It's too bad you don't have your tree anymore. But you know, Christmas isn't about having a tree and stuff like that. It's all about being with your family and humans that love you...and you do have lots of that.

Hi Mario,Mum said if you send it to her she will fix the photo on her PC and then send it back to you ( rachel.dejong28@googlemail.com )
Gosh no fair that you only have that little tree Mario,xx Speedy

Smokey said...

Mario, I've been looking closely at both pics, and darn it all YOU ARE RIGHT! It seems to me that both trees are on top of a table of about the same size. I say you get on the case, start a petition and I'll put my angel paw signature on it - even my Mom's signature for good measure and let's get you a bigger tree next year! Purrs.

Oh Mario! We can imagine how annoying that must be. YOUR tree occupied by your cousins. Sigh....We wish we could invite you over to share our tree. It's huge.

That's a weird problem with the photo. We don;t use a cellphone for photos, so we can't be any help, unfortunately.

Purrs,
The Chans

I can see why you'd be upset! There's no way to fit luxurious and wonderous cat bulk under that tiny tree. Are you picketing yet? I would be.

I was just gonna say what Speedy did. We can rotate it for you. Maybe you could talk your human sis into giving you your tree back next year.
