Meowy Christmas and Happy Howlidays!

If you were part of this year's holiday card exchange, or if you have watched the wonderful Cat Bloggers Holiday Slideshow created by Peaches, Paprika, and their mom Carol, then you might have already seen that there Christmas card we doodled up this year. Regardless, we want to reiterate our message and wish each and every single one of you a Christmas, or any holiday you celebrate, that is merry and bright!

This Christmas, we are especially thankful for our family and friends, and that most certainly includes all of you. We are so blessed to have such kind, caring, supportive, and fun friends in all of you.

We really, truly wish for each and every individual to know love and comfort this Christmas.
Peace, joy, and many blessings to all.


Our Tip of the Day:

Christmas is often a time of remembrance, a time when memories find their way into our minds. This can sometimes make this time of year a bittersweet one, as we remember our loved ones, both human and furry, who are no longer with us. Today's tip is to of course remember lost loved ones with fondness during the beautiful holiday season, but also to find ways to include lost loved ones in the festivities, if this is something that would benefit you. There are a number of ways to keep lost furbabies' or other family members' memories alive and well during the holiday season, such as by hanging an ornament dedicated to them. One example of this includes picture frame ornaments, in which you can obviously place a photo of a lost loved one. Another example are ornaments sculpted or painted in the likeness of a lost loved one, and this of course includes ornaments made to resemble kitties or pups who have gained their angel wings.

In addition to memorial ornaments, you can also set up memorial stations in your house for lost loved ones. This memorial area can be a place where you set up photos of a lost kitty, pup, or human family member who is no longer with you. What's more, to maintain their memory and inclusion during the holidays, you can add festive decorations to the memorial area you have set up for them. You can festively light up the memorial station with lights or candles, as long as this is done in a safe manner. There are plenty of other options for using festive yet respectful decor to include a lost loved one in the holiday spirit.

Just one more of many options for keeping a lost loved one's memory alive and well during this holiday season is to make a donation or other gift in their memory. When it comes to an angel kitty or pup, you can donate goods to a shelter or rescue in their memory. You can also sponsor, or even foster or adopt, an animal in their honor. Though remembering lost loved ones during the holiday season can be a bittersweet thing, there are many ways in which to maintain a lost loved one's memory and include them in the festivities.
