A Festive Selfie Altercation

Thimble wanted to snap a festive and stunning selfie for today. Of course, Thimble is always stunning, but she ended up looking a bit more shocked in her selfie, or perhaps the word is perturbed?

Why is Thimble looking all shocked and perturbed there? Because her calico sister jumped into the Christmas tree right before Thimble snapped this selfie, and Thimble has zero tolerance for photo shoot interruptions. Which is probably why this blurry altercation ensued:

Tonks took a couple of whacks to the head, but she was completely unfazed and continued her Christmas tree shenanigans as an increasingly perturbed Thimble stalked off. Typical.

Happy Sunday, friends!

Tip of the Day

Our last Christmas tree tip relates to real trees and how they might affect your furbaby. If you have a real tree, be cautious of letting your kitty or pup drink from any accessible water in the tree stand. It is possible that certain chemicals, such as fertilizers or even pesticides, are used in some tree lots. Some of these chemicals can then end up in the water that the tree is resting in, and this can potentially lead to toxic side effects for your furbaby. Another concern relates to stagnant water in the tree stand, which can harbor potentially harmful bacteria. In addition, be careful of pine needles falling from real trees, and even artificial trees, for that matter. These needles are pointy and sharp, and if consumed this can potentially lead to internal damage. So, keep that tree water covered or somehow out of reach, and keep those fallen pine needles cleaned up, so that your furbaby and the Christmas tree can live in harmony.
