Holiday Confusion

We're rewinding a tad bit. Why? Because when this human was going through photos the other day, it came to our attention that we forgot to share some photos snapped around Thanksgiving here in the US. To better explain, the kitties around here have a turkey toy that participated in a photo shoot back in early November. Somehow, though, that photo shoot slipped right out of this here human's mind, and so the photos never made it to the blog around their intended holiday. So, we're going to share those photos now. On top of being a confusing holiday flashback, this is also very much so a blooper reel of a photo shoot.

This photo shoot started off innocently enough, with the turkey and Evan posing in the glow of the front door window.

Then Evan noticed the turkey, though, and things went downhill.

Unfortunately, the turkey's abuse didn't end with Evan.

I chopped Tonks's head off in that there photo (no surprise, because that's my level of skill), and she retaliated against the poor, innocent turkey.

When I asked Thimble to pose with the turkey on our parlor table, she went true Thimble style on the poor bird.

That photo was snapped moments before the turkey was thrown from the table in a most ruthless manner. Perhaps that's why we didn't share these photos in the first place? Well, now that we have shared it, you know the true nature of the fierce furbabies around here.

Happy Tuesday, friends!

Our Festive Doodle of the Day:

Today's doodle is a reinvention of a drawing I created a couple years ago. My style has slightly changed since then, so this doodle looks similar, but also not the same.

Our Tip of the Day:

We previously mentioned being cautious when using lights on your Christmas tree, due to the various hazards they pose, such as electrocution or a kitty or pup getting tangled. That being said, also be sure to keep this same concept in mind when putting up lights, or other decorations, outdoors. After all, outdoor animals, such as squirrels, birds, or stray or feral cats, can also potentially be put at risk by Christmas decorations. Try to prevent dangerous situations by taking precautions, such as never leaving any parts or pieces of decorations loose, as both indoor and outdoor babies could get tangled up or ingest something dangerous. When it comes to cords, whether indoor or outdoor, try to find a way to safely secure them, such as by taping them to a wall or the ground. You certainly don't have to forego decorations and all things festive, but do keep in mind the safety of both indoor and outdoor critters.

That bird toy is going to be “loved” to death in no time. At least all the cats had a good time with it.

The Trout Towne tabbies are going to be mad if they see you let a turkey inside :) That is a cute little toy. I love the drawing, so pretty. Excellent tips too.
