Meet Ralph, the world's sweetest cat. We adopted him 2 yrs ago from the local pound and he has been our gift from God. That being said, curious little Ralph decided to rub all over the 36" seashell Christmas tree I made for my sister and brother in law, and he knocked it over. Luckily, only the starfish and 5 shells came off and all was not lost. It was an easy fix, and I learned to keep the tree locked away from Ralphie until Thanksgiving evening. Pictured above is my sister, just after I told her that the centerpiece is an early Christmas gift for her take home last night. She and her husband have 2 cats and a dog, and told me it is safely on display in their home on their mantle.
