Honestly, I hope you're not tiring of such scenes. After all, for me, Christmas doesn't end on Christmas Day. Just as I do every year, I will be celebrating the Twelve Days of Christmas. Christmas itself is only the First Day of Christmas, which means my Christmas mood and doodles continue on throughout the first week of January. So, I hope you're prepared for two more weeks of Christmas from us here at Four-Legged Furballs.
Merry Christmas season to all!
Our Tip of the Day:
Over the past couple of days, we've been discussing how to ensure that your furbaby is safe when you leave home or otherwise leave them unattended this holiday season. We've already reminded you to unplug Christmas lights and to remove the ample Christmas snacks from their reach. Now, today, we want to remind you about those gifts under the Christmas tree. To begin, we've mentioned in previous tips the danger posed by items such as ribbon, tape, and even wrapping paper itself. After all, consumption of these items can lead to any number of issues, including intestinal distress, blockage, or other damage.
It's not just the outside of the gifts that can be hazardous, though. First and foremost, if any wrapped gifts contain food, whether it be yummy treats for a human or treats for a furbaby, keep those gifts well out of reach of your furbaby at all times. As you all know, kitties and pups have a darn good sense of smell, and some furbabies might feel compelled to chew or rip their way to any food they smell. This can be bad news not only for the gift itself, but also of course for your furbaby, especially if the food they find includes chocolate or other toxic components. Though it's obviously not toxic, also refrain from hiding gifts containing catnip beneath the tree. This could lead to a destroyed or stolen gift box, as well as to the potential dangers that result from eating gift wrapping material.
There are plenty of other considerations to make on this topic as well. Are any of the gifts you wrapped small? And is your kitty or pup one to slap around, run off with, or eat small items? Are any of the gifts large? Or are multiple gifts creating a large pile around the Christmas tree? Is your furbaby a jumper or climber or otherwise at risk of knocking over large or piled gifts? Are any of the gifts fragile? Is your furbaby simply a chewer who will eat their way through a wrapped gift just for the sake of it?
The long and short of it is to always be aware of the temptations as well as the dangers that wrapped gifts can pose to a furbaby. You know your furbaby best, and you, or perhaps someone else in your house, knows what is contained within those gifts beneath the tree. Keeping all of that in mind, treat gifts accordingly when leaving your furbaby unattended at home. If that means hiding all gifts rather than leaving them beneath the tree, then find a safe and secure hiding place for them.
Da Boyz tear into anything that isn't nailed down, so we are very careful when bringing new items into the house. Cute doodle, and I for one never tire of them!
We love your Christmas doodles!

Very cute drawing. We keep everything up until Epiphany , which is also my hubby's birthday. Excellent tips. We can't put anything under the tree until right before guests arrive when the cats are locked up.
COZY TO THE MAX!!!
It's always best to celebrate the 12 Days, i consider Advent and Christmas to be a nice, long time and worth spinning out.
We never take our decorations down until the evening of January 5th. Sometimes they stay up longer but I do try to take then down on Twelfth Night.
Fantastic! And the book title is just purrfect :)
That be real cozy!
Aww, we love this! Rosie is so cozy, and we think the book title is purrfect!
How can I tire of Christmas? Thank you for the cute card. I couldn't believe one of the fill-in people said they take down their tree and decorations the day after Christmas.
We so enjoy your Christmas doodles, especially with Angel Rosie. You all have a fantastic Sunday.
We love your Christmas doodles.
Your doodles look furry cosy. Such a difference from the grey, threatening sky We can see from the windows at the moment.
