A Very Nosy Sunday Selfie

Kitten Tonks said she would snap a selfie for today. So, I handed over the camera to the eager little lady. What I got in return was this:

Perhaps that blurry, pink little nose selfie is more like a blooper, but it's a selfie sort of blooper and so Tonks is sharing it in the Sunday Selfies blog hop, hosted by the Kitties Blue of The Cat on My Head.

Happy Sunday, friends!

Our Festive Doodle of the Day:

If you received a Christmas card from us last year, or if you visited our blog at all during the Christmas season last year, you probably saw your fair share of red truck Christmas doodles from us even back then. I'm still all over that red truck Christmas vibe, so here's yet another one, starring my Angels Rosie and Sammy.

Our Tip of the Day:

Yesterday, we mentioned the importance of securing your Christmas tree against any furry climbers in the home. Today, we have another Christmas tree safety tip, this time regarding those light strands and ornaments. As you all certainly already know, always be careful of cords and the dangers they pose, such as if chewed on or if a furbaby becomes tangled in them. If your furbaby only seems interested in the lower branches of the tree, perhaps only place lights on the upper portion. Or, if necessary, do not use lights at all. If you do decorate your tree with lights, always unplug them if left unattended.

The same sort of rules can apply to ornaments, as needed. You can avoid placing them on the lower portion of the tree, or not use them altogether. If glass ornaments might become broken and cause potential injuries, consider using only plastic ones. Also consider the dangers of ornament hooks, or the choking hazards the ornaments themselves might pose. At our house, for these reasons, ornaments are not included on the tree but are instead hung from strands of garland that are attached to the wall, out of certain furbabies' reach. You don't have to throw your festive spirit out the door if you have adventurous and Christmas tree-loving furbabies, you simply have to take necessary precautions.

Tonks, ya done good, little one. We love your nose-tastic selfie!

Great tips about making your tree safer for the kitties. Ava is the youngest kitty we've ever adopted, and the first who seemed interested in possibly climbing up the center. We wrapped a whole bunch of empty boxes as gifts to block her access to the center. She has since decided that she is content laying on the tree skirt UNDER the tree. :)

OMC Tonks, could you be any cuter? I love those Christmas trucks too and they seem to getting more popular than ever!

Tonks just needs a little more practice. The first time you do anything you aren’t quite as good as the 5th time, and then the 10th, and etc.

Great doodles, excellent tips!
