Meow Monday – Cats Love Christmas

My cats love Christmas almost as much as I do. Between the tree, the dangling ornaments, ribbons on packages, and helping me wrap presents, it’s their favorite time of year.

Our Christmas tree is a cat magnet. All season long, that’s where you will find most, if not all, of our cats. Here’s George, sitting on our windowsill checking it out.

Snuffy doesn’t look like he’s enjoying Christmas, but he really is.

What would it be like to wrap presents without one of the cats to help. Jezebel was super helpful. She loves to bite the wrapping paper and swat at it while I’m trying to measure a piece.

Maybe you need a cat for Christmas. Now is a great time to adopt one from Lollypop Farm. They are having their 12 Days of Christmas special until 12/24. All adoptable animals are 50% off their regular adoption fee and all cats and dogs over 6 years old are free!

Meet Duffy, our Lollypop Farm Pet of the Week!

Duffy

Duffy is an 8-year-old male domestic longhair mix. He was found wandering around in the Dansville area. This sweet old fellow deserves a nice warm home for the holidays. Come meet him at Lollypop Farm.

Sorry I missed last week’s Meow Monday. Basically, I had the plague and was terribly sick. Glad I’m finally doing a bit better!

I Would Love a Canon from Best Buy Under My Christmas Tree

The reviewer has been compensated in the form of a Best Buy Gift Card and/or received the product/service at a reduced price or for free

Are you listening honey? I would love the Canon EOS Rebel T5i under the Christmas Tree this year. I don’t know about you, but I’m the one who takes all the pictures at home of the family and for this website. I’ve been dreaming of a new DSLR camera for quite a while. The Canon EOS Rebel T5i would be perfect for me. Once again, are you listening honey? Hint, hint.

I use my phone to take a lot of my photos but it would be great to have one of these babies. You can really tell the difference between pictures taken with my old point and shoot or my phone and pictures taken with a DSLR. I’m keeping my fingers crossed I get the Canon EOS Rebel T51 under the tree. It’s not like my husband isn’t at Best Buy at least once a week anyway and since he can purchase it there, it’s so convenient. In my opinion it’s a win win.

Meow Monday – Out of Cat Treats

I fear the day we run out of cat treats. Okay, just kidding, Snuffy is the sweetest cat ever, but due to his facial deformities he can easily look very annoyed. Don’t let that angry face fool you.

Did you say We are Out of Cat Treats

 

Meet our Lollypop Farm Pet of the Week

Chyna
#21534292

Chyna is a 2-year-old female domestic medium hair mix who has come back to Lollypop Farm after a previous adoption through no fault of her own. She’s a shy girl who likes to cuddle once she warms up to you. She’s also kind of freak for curly pipe cleaners and lots of fun to watch! Come meet her at Lollypop Farm!

Meow Monday Christmas Edition

Meow Monday Christmas Edition

It’s December 1st and I’m home decorating the house, so it makes sense to post a few pics of our cats enjoying Christmas. Snuffy is the one who seems to enjoy Christmas the most. As soon as we bring in our fresh-cut tree, and put it up in our living room, that’s where you will find him. He curls up underneath and stays there until we take the tree down.

Meow Monday Christmas Edition

In the bottom right hand picture, Snuffy looks a little annoyed that there are presents blocking his access to the tree. In the opposite picture, Jezebel might have hit the catnip a little too hard and started attacking J-Man’s new Chain Chomp. It just wouldn’t seem like Christmas without our cats enjoying the holiday with us.

Meet Winnie, our Lollypop Farm Pet of the Week. I’m sure she would love a new home for the Holidays!

Winnie

#24257550

Winnie is a 1-year-old female domestic shorthair mix who likes to be petted but is not a fan of being carried around. She is declawed. We think she’ll do best in a home where any children are older since she’s a bit particular about how she’s handled and that can be hard for little ones to cooperate with. Come meet this pretty girl at Lollypop Farm!
