I Spy a Tonks in a Christmas Tree

It's the week of Christmas and we still have a ton of festive things to share with you all. Things have been crazy and chaos over here, though, which is why we have another late post for you today. In order to share lots of our remaining festive fun with you all, we'll be making our Christmas Eve and Christmas Day posts a festive extravaganza. For today, though, how about a little glimpse of a calico in a tree to tide you over?

I can't even compute how many photos I've taken of Tonks in the Christmas tree. All I know is that it's a lot.

Have a terrifically festive Tuesday, friends!


Festive Flashback Doodle of the Day


Tip of the Day

Yesterday we discussed unplugging Christmas lights and removing other potentially dangerous decor from your furbaby's reach in the event that they are not being supervised. Festive decor is not the only danger this time of year, though. As we all probably know, lots of snacks and treats come out of the woodwork this time of year. What's more, a lot of these treats are not healthy for our kitties and pups. Chocolate, alcohol, fatty foods, and excess sugar and salt, just to name a couple, can all pose risks to the health of our furbabies. For this reason, if you need to leave your house or in any way leave your furbaby unattended, ensure that they do not have access to your Christmas goodies. This could relate to any number of situations. For example, keep in mind snack bowls, food being prepared or cooling on the kitchen counter, a full table on Christmas Day, and even dirty dishes in the sink or food in the trash bin. So, if your furbaby is going to be left alone and unsupervised, remove food from the counters and table, hide snack bowls, clear out the sink, and take out or hide the trash. Our kitties and pups might find some of our Christmas treats just as delicious as we find them, but that doesn't mean it's healthy for them to snack on them. So, especially in the event that you will not be home or available to monitor your kitty or pup, think ahead and remove all food from your furbaby's reach.

Tonks is too funny. Good thing she is so cute she can get away with anything. I like the flashback and great tips.

I used to climb in the tree too. So much so that I broke a few branches. I've outgrown that phase of life. Maybe Tonks will too someday. ~Ernie
