A Quaint and Cozy Christmas

Sorry for another late post! Blogger and I had another argument regarding me uploading images to my blog. I don't know why Blogger has been trolling me lately, but at least I won this round, finally.

Anyway, here is the second doodle in our Dickensian Christmas series.

In this doodle, Christmas cards and letters are being prepared by the warmth of a fire. There's of course a kitty snoopervisor, though said kitty is sleeping on the job. We're putting the final touches on our own Christmas cards this weekend, because this human has been running late in preparing them. At least I also have kitty snoopervisors to keep me in line.

Have a cozy Caturday!

Tip of the Day

This time of year, we often enjoy having our homes smell festive. We recently mentioned how using candles to scent your home can pose obvious risks to our furbabies, and today we're here to discuss how using potpourri or essential oils to fragrance your home can also be dangerous to your furbaby. If you use liquid potpourri or essential oils to make your home smell like Christmas, or if you use them year round, be extremely cautious using them around your furbaby. Both ingestion and skin contact with some of these scented items can be extremely dangerous and toxic to your kitty or pup, causing anything from skin irritation to symptoms such as vomiting, difficulty breathing, and weakness. Just some of the essential oils and other similar products that can cause illness are those derived from cinnamon, pine, peppermint, and citrus. Therefore, if your holiday season includes using oils or potpourri to make your home smell festive, be extremely careful to keep all such products safely out of your furbaby's reach.

Good point about essential oils and candles; they are harmful to cats!
We've removed pretty much all perfumes and scented things from our house, just to err on the safe side.

We would love to crawl on that chair along with that kitty...and take a nap.

A lovely, restful scene.

Blogger argues with me about stuff, too, and i have yet to figure out why.

We love this doodle. So glad you won a round with Blogger. :)

Thank you so much for your kind words about our Gracie's passing. We miss her so much.

Nice job, Evan. TV family time is the best!

We love your Christmas sloth, Mom L.A.!

Nothing like a nap by the fire

I'd shake the treat bag to arouse the sleeping cat. HAH!

Your Awesome Inc template may not be compatible with the new Blogger. It sounds like a coding issue since no one in the two Blogger FB groups I belong to are having problems uploading images.
