Mancat Monday

Today we have a picture to show you for Mancat Monday, of course. It's a festive photo, but also far from a quality shot. You see, mancat Evan has not yet shared any festive shots this Christmas season. That's not because Evan's not a festive boy, though. In fact, he loves his Christmas tree. But, he loves it so much that it turns him into a blurry mess like his sister Eddy.

Being hind limb paralyzed, Evan sticks to the bottom of the tree. While his sisters Eddy and Thimble enjoy climbing the tree, Evan makes a bed out of the tree skirt. Can you tell that from the state of the tree skirt in that photo up there? No matter what methods I use, no matter how securely I try to fasten it in place, Evan has his way with that poor tree skirt.

Evan hangs out under the tree as often as possible in hopes of catching Santa Paws. He waits for him night and day.

Christmas is only one week away, for anyway who wasn't yet aware. Who else is waiting for Santa Paws to show up?

Happy Monday, friends!

Our Festive Doodle of the Day:

Our Tip of the Day:
Today is another one of our tips on how to travel with your furbaby this holiday season, or any time of the year. When traveling with your furbaby, consider how you will be traveling and what all therefore might be necessary. Are you and your furbaby traveling by car? Plane? Train? For a plane, train, or other public transportation, do your research and understand what all that particular company might require for your furbaby to board and travel. Is a carrier required? If so, how small or big of one? Is a health certificate required, and/or proof of particular vaccinations? Look into all of this and plan well in advance so that all can be squared away before you and your furbaby head out on your travels. Of course, this is all also important to keep in mind when traveling in your own car. Proper, safe restraint is important even in a car, of course. Have secure carriers for kitties and small dogs, or leashes and seat belts for larger dogs. Even in your own car it is also important for your furbaby to be up-to-date on vaccines and other medical care, in case you should be stopped and asked for proof of their health status. So, while it is often possible to travel with your kitty or pup, do of course ensure that you allow proper time to find out what all you will need for safe and legal travels.

Good job watching for Santa Evan. I hope he brings you lots of toys. Very cute tortie drawing. And excellent tip, I always feel bad for pets that don't get to ride with their humans on the plane.

Good job Evan guarding that tree even if the tree skirt gets a little messed up. Besides, it is way more comfortable that way.The drawing is terrific today. You all have a fine day.

Haha, your doodle is of Thimble and Eddy hanging onto an ornament! So cute, and what's a bit of mussed up tree skirt if Evan is having fun too?

We can't wait for Santa Paws to get here! Like Evan, we're spending lots of time under the tree waiting for him.

Evan, I hope you get to see Santa Paws! I'm glad you enjoy the tree so much. :)

Thank you so much for your darling Christmas card! We really appreciate you thinking of us.

That is a very well loved tree skirt, Evan!

Evan, I hang out under the tree too - I figure if I stay there, I'm more than likely going to see Santa Paws's a "front row seat" !!

Hugs, Teddy
