Secret Santa Paws Selfies

Hi, friends! Guess what? I, Toby, get to take charge of the blog today!

Do you see what's behind me there?

Do you see it? Do you see that box up there on the table?

That's from our Secret Paws! That's right, our Secret Santa Paws already got our gifts to us. We're so excited!

But, do you know what? The human lady here is making us hold out a bit longer until we can open it. She says we have to wait until a little closer to Christmas. Can you believe that? She's so cruel, the human lady here is.

Well, at least we can entertain ourselves in the meantime by wrapping up the goodies we got for our Secret Paws. We'll be sending the gift box out very soon, and we're just as excited about that!

Oh, I almost forgot. I snapped those Secret Santa Paws selfies up there as part of the Sunday Selfies blog hop, hosted by none other than the Kitties Blue over at The Cat on My Head.

We hope all of you friends of ours have a super Sunday!


Our Festive Doodle of the Day:

This doodle is part of our Tails of Tiny Tim series, which honors specially abled furbabies. It is meant to represent my girl Eddy. Eddy came to me as a kitten with a head tilt and facial nerve paralysis, both of which she permanently maintained. She owns these little quirks of hers and is downright adorable.

Our Tip of the Day:
A series of tips on Christmas tree safety simply would not be complete without a comment or two on tinsel. Long story short, please do not use tinsel if you have furbabies in your life. This stringy stuff can be quite tempting to kitties, for example, but can also be extremely dangerous. If consumed, it can cause problems such as gastrointestinal obstruction or laceration. Keeping that in mind, if your furbaby does swallow tinsel and you find some hanging from their mouth or even anus, do not pull on it, as this can cause even further internal damage. If you find yourself in a situation such as this, seek veterinary care as soon as possible. Again, though, to prevent such incidents, it is highly recommended that you simply do not use tinsel as part of your Christmas decorations.

Aww, Toby and eddy both look adorable! Toby, If it was me I'd be sharpening the claws ready to slice the packaging tape in the dead of night, and have a peek inside. Thank goodness I'm not their to help you MOL

Toby, you are a cutie. When your mom and auntie are at work, I am sure you could use your claws to open the box. :) I love the drawing of adorable Eddy. Great tip too, we threw away all our tinsel years ago.

Wow, that's super duper early! I think I would have to wait a while before opening it too :)

Gosh! What a great tree! And you got a package to go underneath it! I bet when you open it up, everything inside is wrapped!

Mom is wrapping our Secret Paws gifts this weekend. That is a huge box you got. We can't wait to see what you received. Our mom never lets us open anything before Christmas. Hope you're luckier than we are. We love your selfies, Toby. Thanks for joining the hop.
