However this yr, I’m additionally sharing a feline festive vibe from a latest cruise and from dwelling with Odin. Plus our Cat Knowledge 101 snail mail vacation card.
A restricted quantity of snail mail playing cards had been mailed out simply earlier than I left on my travels. I ran out of time and a bunch weren’t despatched, sorry.
This yr I spent a part of the vacation season on a Caribbean cruise. What a pleasure to see the ship decked out in vacation sparkles.
I all the time have to stay in my basic pic of Odin with the menorah candles. He not cares about candle flames however I’m nonetheless cautious.
And when you’re questioning What Cats Actually Need for Christmas learn this. No procuring concerned 🙂
I don’t often put on a Santa hat in public however there’s something liberating about being on a cruise ship. It’s unlikely I’ll ever see these passengers once more so why not be foolish. After all my (not so) ugly Christmas sweater has a cat in full sparkly sequin splendor.
There have been no cats on board however there was one lovable and really devoted service canine.
I questioned he was going potty and located a comfy nook open air with a aid station.
Whereas there have been no actual cats onboard, I did discover this big cat sculpture by Romero Britto.
There was a spectacular gingerbread village onboard.
The Christchurch Anglican Cathedral in Nassau, Bahamas has pretty stained glass window. I discovered it to be a peaceable respite from busy, touristy downtown.
Getting again to classic cat artwork, isn’t it outstanding how one thing from over 60 years in the past is as recent as yesterday? I performed with them so as to add slightly further festive enjoyable. For those who love this sort of artwork, right here’s just a few extra Classic Merry Christmas Cats from our archive.
It was bittersweet adorning the tree this yr. I made ornaments for our 4 cats three years however sadly Odin is the one one left this yr.
I purchased a brand new Santa hat for Odin however who was a kidding? He refused to indulge me and pose. However he did make a pleasant query mark together with his tail.
Oh properly, there’s all the time photograph modifying 😉
We had a small get together on the weekend for our very spiritually eclectic household. Yearly is totally different and and it doesn’t matter what, there’s all the time one thing to have a good time. Adorning with outdated and new objects. Cooking and baking household favorites and attempting one thing new. There is no such thing as a proper or improper option to have a good time when there’s love.
And Odin will add: Neglect about purrfection folks! Loosen up. Stress much less and purr extra.
Joyful Holidays. Merry Christmas. Joyful Hanukkah. No matter you consider in, I believe we will all agree, we’d like extra love, mild, hope and peace.
