I’m posting this way before Christmas, because a project like this takes so much planning, cunning, and thought.
I would imagine, though, that a kitten in a stocking would be just as effective. Maybe cuter. Plus, it’s hard as hell to find a cat that would willingly lie there and be wrapped up. But if you can…go for it! Just make sure to give your cat-present food and water as it waits patiently under the tree for Christmas morning.
