Merry Second Day of Christmas!

We hope you all had a merry and meowy Christmas! That being said, did you know that Christmas Day itself, December 25th, is only the First Day of Christmas? Since we celebrate the Twelve Days of Christmas, that means the festivities will continue here on our blog through the first week of January. Today, our festive post is all about some Christmas cookies.

Those there were the final four cookies in pup Astrid's Advent calendar.

Astrid seemed more than happy to eat this cookie decorated with none other than Santa's glass of milk and cookie. Well, that is, she enjoyed it after she was sadly forced to pose with it for a photo shoot.

Don't worry, though, Astrid soon got to dig in.

We hope your Twelve Days of Christmas continue to be merry and bright! Happy Second Day of Christmas!

Our Tip of the Day:

Did your kitty or pup get new toys for Christmas? We're thinking many of them probably did. Now that all such new Christmas gifts have been opened and are being enjoyed, consider going through your furbaby's toy stash, pulling out the ones they don't use, and donating them to a shelter or rescue. Many shelters will accept such toys as long as they are clean, as well as easily cleaned, and in good condition. Of course, it is nonetheless always best to do your research regarding an individual shelter or rescue's requirements for donations. Donating toys that your kitty or pup has accumulated but does not use not only keeps your furbaby's toy stash at manageable levels, but also of course benefits shelter kitties and pups who are awaiting their forever homes. This might also go for unopened cans of food your furbaby will not eat, and even clean blankets they do not use. Christmas is indeed the season of giving, and even though the 25th of December has passed, that spirit of giving does not need to come to an end.

It’s fun to spin it out and celebrate the whole Twelve Days. In some places, it goes through Twentieth Day, actually. Merry Christmas Season!

Those cookies look so cute! This is a great tip. We're going to go through our toys because we got a bunch for Christmas.

Those cookies are so cute! I would have a hard time eating them myself. Thankfully pups don't have that problem :)
