Santa Paws is Coming to Town

Today's chosen doodle is inspired by the fact that the package from our Secret Santa Paws arrived in the mail, and the kitties couldn't be more excited. Though, they're not happy with me since I told they have to wait until Christmas to open it. They know our Secret Santa Paws has been hard at work, and they think it's downright rude that I'm delaying them the rewards of that hard work. Sorry, kitties.

It's only a week until the one and only Santa Paws comes down all those chimneys. Are you excited? We sure are!

Have a festive day, friends!

Tip of the Day

Today we have our final tip on traveling with your furbaby this holiday season, or any time of the year. When traveling, always think ahead to your final destination and your plans for the entire trip, and then prepare accordingly. Will you be staying with family or friends? Do they have other animals? If so, does your furbaby get along with the other animals? Will your kitty or pup need to remain in a separate room or in a cage? Or, are you staying in a hotel? If so, did you ensure that it's a pet-friendly hotel? What are their requirements for a pet staying at their facility? Consider any and all such factors, and then think ahead to what you might need to prep for your furbaby's stay at your final destination.

In all of this planning, of course also don't forget the basic necessities. Bring plenty of your furbaby's food, especially if they are on a prescription or other special diet. Bring bowls and even water as needed. If your furbaby is on medication, bring ample amounts of it, especially in the event of any unexpected delays. Don't forget any potentially necessary items, such as cages, leashes, harnesses, seat belts, blankets, toys, and even cleaning supplies. Though it may not be a pleasant thought, also be sure to make plans and preparations for any emergencies that might arise. For example, take your furbaby's medical records with you, your veterinarian's information, as well as contact and other information on veterinary hospitals located in your travel destination. It never hurts to be over-prepared, so as space allows, plan and pack anything and everything you might need for the comfort and safety of your furbaby during your travels.

I had a present arrive for my birthday, which is December the 25th. It's lovely everyone celebrates with me, but for the life of me I dont know why I dont get more presents? And the tree, all I want is catnip and a comfy sofa. Do I get them? No.
Anyways, my gripe aside, I hope you get to open your presents very soon, and have fun with all the goodies inside :)

We love your special festive header artwork! Dad's watching like a hawk out the front door for a package that's one of mom's Christmas gifts that's supposed to be here "by 9:00 p.m." today. Who the heck in the USPS delivers packages at that hour? Happy rest-of-your-weekend!
