I'm sorry it's so blurry, you guys. I was just so excited I could hardly contain myself. After my mom ripped apart my tree last winter and then shoved its dismembered body in a box, I thought I'd never see it again. But, she just this weekend pulled its remains from the box and restored it to life. Isn't that wonderful?
I snapped even more excited selfies with my faux fir friend, and I'll be sure to share them with you over the next couple of weeks. Don't worry, those are all in my usual blurry style as well. Sitting still is so overrated.
Of course, today's selfie is my entry in the Sunday Selfies blog hop, hosted by our Kitties Blue friends over at The Cat on My Head.
Happy Sunday to all of our friends!

We went for another dilute little tortie doodle today, and mixed it with a little Christmas magic.
Our Tip of the Day:
As we mentioned before, November is Pet Diabetes Awareness Month, and so we're giving some tips related to that significant topic. Today, our tip relates to at-home monitoring of diabetes. Just as with humans, blood glucose can be checked at home for kitties and pups. This is often done using a vein in the ear, a sterile needle, and a glucometer like those used for humans. Of course, this sort of at-home monitoring may not be an option for all furbabies, depending on the owner's comfort with the practice, the kitty or pup's health status, and also on their personal demeanor. But, if your furbaby is diagnosed with diabetes, do consider discussing this potential option with your veterinarian. After all, if you are able to check blood glucose at home, that can allow for closer monitoring of your furbaby's diabetic status. Regardless, though, regular blood glucose checks are important for diabetic furbabies, especially early in the disease. If you are unable to check it at home, discuss with your veterinarian how often your furbaby should be brought in to the vet's office to have their glucose checked.
