Wordless Wednesday – A Wondrous Sight

Magellan & The Bear

Welcome To Wordless Wednesday At Create With Joy!

Quote Of The Week

If there is no one at home at Christmastime,
My cat would hold the energy of home and
Make every day a holiday.


Yesterday we began to decorate our home for Christmas. Last year, Magellan was quite overwhelmed by the process. He did not like having his living space invaded by bins filled with strange sparkly things and wasn’t quite sure what to make of a tree in the middle of the living room floor!

Cats like routine and, of course, the holiday season is anything but routine!

This year, Magellan is much more comfortable with the process! He nestled on top of the red and green ornament bins as we put up the tree and decorations and could not wait to do a meet and greet with the Christmas Bear on the wreath on the mantel!

Have an amazing week and Happy Hannukah to all of our Jewish friends!

    Aww! I agree that is sooo cute heheh!

    Have a seasonallytastic week 🙂

  3. If Magellan just looks at the tree, that’s wonderful. My 4 cats play with anything around the house. Long story short, I can’t even put glasses on the coffee table because Fritz likes to knock them over and watch the liquid spill out.

    Thanks for hosting. I forgot to put the image, again.

    Our cat was rather overwhelmed with the Christmas tree decorating process as well. He hasn’t actually been near the tree so far. Just watches from a distance.

    That photo is super gorgeous! I would have to agree with that quote. Cats are wonderful house pets. 😉

  8. That is a beautiful photo! Thanks for hosting. Have a great week!

    What an awesome, adorable photo you captured!! My cats hardly ever sit still long enough for me to take their pictures… but my furbabies do star in my WW post today just the same. ;P

    Awww…Such a cute photo with Christmas bear!

  11. meowmeowmans says:

    That is such a sweet photo of Magellan and the Christmas bear. 🙂

  12. That is so cute. What a perfect Xmas card pic.

  13. Great picture! I do decorate for the Holidays, but a very minimalist decor since my cat likes to play with everything. Last year he chew on Santa Claus 🙂

  14. What a precious picture of Magellan and the bear — that’s definitely a keeper. I always enjoying visiting with you and seeing what he’s up to next. 🙂 Hope you have a peaceful and blessed Christmas!

    This will be Luxie’s first Christmas. We aren’t sure what she is going to make of it!

  16. It’s pretty much a holiday any day my cats are home alone. LOL

    A penny for Magellan’s thoughts…

  18. Scott@PetRegale says:

    Our dogs couldn’t care less about the decorating we did. They got in the way a bit because of the excitement from the rest of us about setting up the tree. But I don’t think these two mutts give a hoot about Christmas. They just go along on their merry way all year long.

  19. Kitties Blue says:

    One of the most precious Christmas photos ever. It would make an adorable card. I’d buy it. My favorite things: cats and bears! Hugs, Janet

  20. This looks very tempting for little cat paws to play with. 🙂

  21. tea says:

    Magellan is like my Boots. Boots loves to sit on top of our ornament bin. She also likes to bat the balls off the tree. I guess the shiny colors make her happy. I’m like Magellan. I like that teddy bear.

  22. Ann says:

    Magellan sounds like a character and you are so right, cats do like routine. My cat Simon exhibits the same kind of behavior at Christmas. I love the photograph, great choice.

    I think this is the first time I’ve visited your website, and I really like it. I think it’s nice how you wished our Jewish friend’s a Happy Hannukah. You know, I always forget to do that, so thanks for reminding me.

    Have a great day!

    Well, I guess Magellan just have to make friends with ol’ Mr. Teddy Bear, and once he finds out how cuddly he is I’m sure they’ll be best of friends! hehehe Merry Christmas dear friend. I’m so sorry I’ve been scarce lately, but I had an awful bout of the flu and Christmas parties galore all on the same weekend. aughhhhh how that happened I’ll never know. Plus Christmas shopping for 11 grandchildren, 1 great grandson and four children and their spouses and hubby is a whole lot to do. I’m sooooooooooo tired. Plus I’m crocheting like crazy… making many gifts this year because money is tight 🙁 . Oh well. I need to go enter a lot of give-aways right now and hopefully I’ll win a few so I don’t end up in the poor house this year from helping Santa. ho ho ho HUGS AND MERRY CHRISTMAS DEAR FRIEND!

  25. So cute. My cat Nala used to like to play with ornaments. I was worried about Kilo but so far so good. He has ignored the tree we put up and decorated on the weekend.

  26. Bailey says:

    So hard to adapt to the holiday changes.

  27. orangeheromama says:

    Awww. What a sweet and wonderful pic!

  28. Robin says:

    Awww! Such a precious photo. Magellan looks like he enjoys seeing the decorations. My cats enjoy sleeping under the Christmas tree.

  29. Rorybore says:

    Our cat is equally confused right now. he was just a kitten last year so maybe he doesn’t remember all the festive hustle and bustle. I store all my Christmas decorations under our stairs, and he keeps following me in there when I get something. I have to keep remembering to keep the door open for a bit because I shut him up in there by accident the other day! Thank goodness I needed more ribbon.

      My cat Sampson used to crawl under the stairs and get locked in by my husband – and wait until I got home to yowl and get him in trouble!
      They are really good at sneaking in places when you aren’t looking – I always do an accounting for the cats when they haven’t been spotted in awhile!

    I love all the ideas I get from visiting your site and would love for you to share with us at Seeking God. I have a new Blog Party called Sitting Among Friends. I think my readers would love all the great posts here. Visit us at http://youresewtrendy.blogspot.com

  31. That is a great picture. My cat loves the tree! 😉

  32. Ellen Pilch says:

    That is good Magellan has adjusted to Christmas. My nosey kitties love to snoop in the boxes.

  33. Beautiful silhouet selfie, Megallan 🙂 We haven’t decorated anything yet, but Granny promised me to do it this week, although I prefer that everything stays the same 😉 Pawkisses for an Easy Sunday 🙂 <3

  34. What a wonderful quote! And a wonderful photo!

  35. Marjorie and Team Dash Kitten says:

    we love our tree but one year Silver loved it so much (just a wee kitten) he climbed it over and over again and we only had four decorations on the tree! This year he isn’t bothered so we put up a lovely tree this last week-end, I love a Christmas Tree 🙂

    Thank you for sharing the lovely picture of Magellan, he looks so sweet.
