Merry Christmas Eve!

Merry Christmas Eve to all of our friends! The kitties here are extra excited for Christmas now. Why, you ask? Because something exciting and fun and festive arrived at our house last night.

Our Secret Santa Paws box arrived! The kitties here were not pleased with me when I informed them that they have to wait until tomorrow morning to open that box of goodness. They protested by trying to chew and poke and prod their way into it.

The kitties are simply going to have to be patient. They get to open that box as well as their other gifts from a certain big man in red tomorrow morning. We have no doubt that all of you friends of ours have been good all year, and so we also have no doubt that not a single one of you will find coal in your stocking tomorrow morning.

Meowy Christmas Eve, friends!

Tip of the Day

We recently mentioned some ways to make Christmas special for both your own furbabies and those in shelters. Today, we want to remind you to remember those furbabies who are outdoors and in your neighborhood. Do you have stray or feral cats in your area? If so, for Christmas, or any day possible, try to give them any extra help you can. During this holiday season, or all year round, try to give strays and ferals extra food, treats, or even a toy. If possible, also try to offer them shelter in some way, even if it's something makeshift. This is something that can greatly benefit them during a cold and snowy winter. We'll soon be sharing some repeat yet also significant tips on offering assistance to outdoor strays and ferals, but for now we'll offer this simple reminder to remember outdoor furbabies during this holiday season.

Since we're talking about outdoor animals, perhaps also don't forget the squirrels and birds! For Christmas, you could throw some extra food out for wildlife, to allow them an extra festive day as well. Some places even make or sell especially festive suet cakes and other goodies for outdoor critters this time of year.

So, this Christmas season, don't forget to think outside of your own home and family. Of course Christmas is a time for family, but it's also a time to remember how lucky we are, and how others may not be so lucky. So, spread the love this Christmas season!
