A Merry Christmas Recap

First of all, thank you all for reading and commenting on my boy Evan's story featured on The Daily Pip yesterday! The post is so wonderful, and so are all of your comments!

Now, today is the Twelfth (and therefore final) Day of Christmas. As one last festive hoorah, I thought I'd share a little recap of our Christmas season.

Our Christmas tree went up the day after Thanksgiving,
 and an ornament was immediately crafted and hung for Angel Rosie.
 The kitties (especially one little girl named Eddy) discovered their calling as tree terrorists.
 So a new cat tree was gifted as an early Christmas present, in hopes of giving the kitties something to turn their attention to besides the poor traumatized Christmas tree.
 This new cat tree was selected especially with my boy Evan's special needs in mind, and for the first time ever he climbed to the top of a cat tree all by himself!
 We spent the Christmas season dressed festively,
 and baking festive goodies,
 and taking Christmas photos by the tree.
 And then the big day was here, and the furbabies had their way with new toys,
 and got warm new blankies from their gammy!
 We visited our festive family,
 and gave them their Christmas gifts.
 But that was just the beginning, as we still had the Twelve Days of Christmas to enjoy the Christmas spirit in the continued company of our Christmas tree.
We continued to listen to Christmas music, and on each day I decided to stay festive by creating a piece of Christmasy art.

And that brings us to today, the Twelfth Day of Christmas! So, I'll now share my final piece of Christmas art for these Twelve Days of Christmas. I started out these art pieces with one of my sweet angel Rosie, and of course I'll end it the same way.
Merry Twelfth Day of Christmas! We hope all of our furiends and friends out there had a very merry, blessed Christmas season!

Love all your 12 days of Christmas art but especially the last piece...purrfection! The story yesterday about Evan was incredible. You are his guardian angel! Thanks for the continued support you have been offering with regards to Fiona. We do use a new needle every time and warm the fluid in our warming drawer. We are using an 18 gauge needle as that is what our vet gave us. I will ask her about a 20 gauge needle. Of course, when Fiona got her fluids at the vet yesterday, she was a purrfect angel. I appreciate all help and suggestions so never feel shy about offering them. Thank you, Janet

What a beautiful tree! When I had a kitty, we used to leave the bottom half undecorated because he would break the ornaments when he knocked them off to play with them. That's wonderful Evan was able to climb atop the kitty tree all on his own.

Thanks for following me back!

What a nice recap of a purrfect Christmas. I love Eddy's tree terrorism. :) Reading more about Evan yesterday on The Daily Pip, seeing him on the top of the tree is all the more amazing. The final picture is perfection!

Great Christmas wrap up! We did notice the lack of ornaments on the bottom half of your beautiful tree! And that cat tree should be called "Stairway to Heaven".

I adore that new cat tree you bought, and love that it was so functional for all of your kitties :)
