Reflective Sunday Selfie

First and foremost, Happy New Year's Eve to all of our friends!

Today, we are reflecting on our 2017. The year of course had its highs and lows, but we are thankful for so very much. We are thankful for each other, for our health, for Astrid's recovery after her toe amputation to remove a sarcoma, for all of our family and friends (like you!), and for yet another year ahead of us.

On this day of reflection, Eddy snapped a pensive selfie in remembrance of 2017.

Of course, the Christmas tree had to make an appearance in Eddy's selfie! And, of course, this is our entry in the Sunday Selfies blog hop, hosted by the Kitties Blue over at The Cat on My Head.

We are wishing each and every one of you a happy, blessed, and safe New Year's Eve! We'll see you next year!

 Merry Seventh Day of Christmas!

Our Tip of the Day:
Keep in mind that in cold weather, animals outdoors will typically increase their food intake, since maintaining body heat in cold weather expends extra energy. So, if you feed outdoor animals, and if you would like to aid them in staying warm this winter, do consider giving them extra food this time of year. That being said, as we've mentioned before, when feeding animals outdoors, do keep in mind what types of food will be most accessible in cold weather. For example, moist food can freeze in cold temperatures, which is less likely to be a problem if extra dry food is fed. Also keep an eye on even your indoor/outdoor furbabies, or even indoor-only kitties or pups, as it is not impossible that they might need a bit extra food in the winter in order to maintain sufficient body heat. Of course, if you have any concern about the amount of food your furbaby requires in the winter, or any time of the year, do consult your veterinarian.


  1. Awww, such a beautiful pensive Eddy/Christmas tree photo, and lovely and important tips as well. Happy New Year everyone!

  2. Eddy sure will miss that tree once it's gone for the year, though I bet there will be something else come along to show off her beauty and a new year of delight.
