A certain human went turkey crazy when the CatLadyBox online shop had a turkey toy sale on none other than Turkey Day itself. I promptly bought one for each of the kitties in the family. As fun as they look, though, none of those turkeys was the first
Although I thought I had discreetly snuck away to snap some shots of the goodies before they were scattered all over the house, I was wrong. Thimble strutted right on in, fully aware of what her mommy was up to.
These blurry photos are evidence that you simply can't hide a nip nanner from
Do you want to know something? The kitties in this house had never enjoyed a nip nanner before this Christmas. I know, I know, what is wrong with this human of theirs?!? To be honest, though, my angel Rosie had a nip nanner, and I did not have the heart to pass hers on to these furbabies, but instead stashed it away in her special box that sits on a shelf in my room. But, neither did I have the heart to bring another nip nanner into the house. I changed that this Christmas, though. I figured Rosie would have wanted her rookie successors to enjoy a nip nanner like she once did (after all, 'tis the season, even if Rosie did loathe Thimble and pretty much every other kitty on this planet).
Want to know something else? It's a tradition in my family, for both the humans and the furbabies, to open some gifts on Christmas Eve night and the rest on Christmas morning. I took the above photos early on Christmas Eve, but I didn't have the heart to make Thimble wait until that night to keep her newfound
Continuing on with the festivities, Thimble was happy to star in today's drawing for the Fifth Day of Christmas. So far we've found ourselves with one partridge in a pear tree, two turtle doves, three French hens, and four calling birds, and now we've reached those five gold rings (or five gold lug nuts, by the looks of the drawing below). Always the helper elf, Thimble was happy to lend a
A very merry Fifth Day of Christmas to all of our furiends!
Our Tip of the Day:There are times when I realize that my posts and pictures have some supreme examples of what not to do in order to ensure your furbaby's safety. This is one of those times. Today's tip is to always be aware and cautious of the locations in which you play with your cat or dog. To prevent potential falls and injuries, never place toys or initiate play on top of tables, counters, stairs, or balconies. Also always be sure that the area near the front door is not considered a place of fun and games, especially if your furbaby is a door bolter. And, especially in the case of furbabies not accustomed to swimming, never play near a bathtub full of water, or any bodies of water. Of course fire is always another hazard, so do not initiate play near lit candles, fireplaces, or campfires or bonfires. And, if playing with your furbaby outside, be careful of open fences or other escape routes, and of course streets and the cars traveling them. Although you should indeed enjoy playtime with your furbaby, don't forget to always be aware of your surroundings before starting any games.
