A Slothful Mancat Monday

Last year, the kitties here got a festive little Santa sloth toy. It's a decently sized toy, as it's supposed to be used as a kicker. Evan, however, thinks the festive little guy makes for a perfect pillow, or bed.

Doesn't that look cozy?

Happy Monday, friends!

Doodle of the Day

Today we have the last doodle in our series starring houses from iconic Christmas movies, or at least Christmas movies that this here human likes. This house is from Home Alone. Of course, our little kitty tour guide is in the doodle to show it to you all.

Tip of the Day

We're going to backtrack a little bit and give one more Christmas tree safety tip. If you want to have lights on your tree, but burns or electrocution are a concern with your furbaby around, or if you are concerned about electrical fires, then perhaps consider using battery-operated lights for your tree or elsewhere in the house. Some of the Christmas lights at our house are battery-operated. Our battery-operated lights even come with a remote control, with a timer option, making it easy to turn them on and off, all without the risks of electrical cords. Also, to save on the cost of batteries, we use rechargeable batteries.

That all being said, though, always base such decisions on your individual furbaby and his or her personal behaviors. The battery pack for the lights we use is very sturdy as well as well-hidden, and the kitties and pup at my house have never proven themselves chewers of such things. For this reason, my particular furbabies accessing the batteries is highly unlikely. Nevertheless, batteries can indeed be dangerous if chewed or consumed, so do keep this in mind when shopping around for anything that is battery-operated. But, if your furbaby is a cord chewer, or if you have any other concerns of the electrical nature, then perhaps look into battery-operated or other safe lighting options for your Christmas tree. Of course, still be careful of the dangers of any loose cords, whether they be attached to battery-operated or electrical lights.

What a cute little toy, and hey - if Evan enjoys it as a pillow, then it's a pillow - MOL! Love the Home Alone doodle, and battery powered lights is a good idea, thanks!

If I had a dollar for everytime I pulled a toy out from under a cat body...well, I'd have a lot of money!
Why they feel that laying on something lumpy is comfortable...*shrug*

I've admired that little guy since last year. SO cute!

Sleeping on your toys doesn't look nearly as much fun as playing with them, but what do i know, it's not my toy!

Evan is adorable with his pet sloth. I love Home Alone and their house.
