A Black Cat Christmas

There's a certain black cat around here who is feeling all shades of festive.

Winky loves napping in the company of the Christmas trees. She often naps in that there cat tree beside that there Christmas tree. She also loves to nap in her favorite cat bed that's currently beneath the Christmas tree we have set up in another room. She's a festive feline, Winky is.

Oh, and can you guess what Winky helped me do the other day? Can you guess? Can you?

Winky helped me wrap our gifts for our Secret Santa Paws! Those gifts are on their way to their new home, where they'll arrive in the next day or so. Isn't this such a wonderful time of the year?

Merry Christmas season to all!

Festive Flashback Doodle of the Day

I remembered scribbling up at least one Christmas doodle starring a black cat a bit like Winky last year, so I went looking for it. My search led me to this doodle from last year:

Tip of the Day

Today is another one of our tips on how to travel with your furbaby this holiday season, or any time of the year. When traveling with your furbaby, consider how you will be traveling and what all therefore might be necessary. Are you and your furbaby traveling by car? Plane? Train? For a plane, train, or other public transportation, do your research and understand what all that particular company might require for your furbaby to board and travel. Is a carrier required? If so, how small or big of one? Is a health certificate required, and/or proof of particular vaccinations? Look into all of this and plan well in advance so that all can be squared away before you and your furbaby head out on your travels. Of course, this is all also important to keep in mind when traveling in your own car. Proper, safe restraint is important even in a car, of course. Have secure carriers for kitties and small dogs, or leashes and seat belts for larger dogs. Even in your own car it is also important for your furbaby to be up-to-date on vaccines and other medical care, in case you should be stopped and asked for proof of their health status. So, while it is often possible to travel with your kitty or pup, do of course ensure that you allow proper time to find out what all you will need for safe and legal travels.

Good job snoopervising! We helped Mom do our Secret Paw package too.

Winky knows that cat fur stuck in the tape is a bonus!

Very good snoopervising, Winky. You deserve to have your Christmas wishes come true for such good work!

Great photos of Winky being EVER SO HELPFUL at Christmas. Teddy so far hasn't "helped" me wrap - in fact I've waited for him to be napping before I did that activity!

Hugs, Pam
