Sunday Selfie

Oops! We're almost too late for our Sunday Selfie!  Truffle woke up long enough from her Winter's nap to post for the camera.

Caturday Art

It's cold here in SC (we know it's even colder for our friends in the Midwest and Northeast) but we're not use to the colder temperatures. We've stayed close to Mom Paula this weekend, trying to stay warm. We have lots of extra cover near us to help keep Mom Paula warm.

Why Is This Closed?

For some reason, Brulee was really interested in what was behind the doors of the bathtub this morning...

We're sure she doesn't want to take a bath.  MOL!

12 Days of Catmas - PetSafe® Smart Feed

Eat Small Meals Throughout the Day

We're sure you've heard the research that it's better to eat small meals throughout the day instead of a couple of large meals. The same can be said for cats (or dogs). The difficulty doing this is if you are away from home during the day and can't monitor the quantity of food or the time of day your pet is fed.

Secret Paws Package

We were excited to receive our Secret Paws package from Savannah, Sage, and Mom Linda at Savannah's Paw Tracks.

We've been participating in the Secret Paws since we came to live with Mom Paula is 2011. Prior to that, Sweet Praline participated for 3 years (hosted 2 years), so we love this annual gift exchange with our blogging kitty friends from around the world.

12 Days of Catmas - Loving Pets

Dine with Classy China

We can't lie to our friends - Mom Paula eats out of paper plates! She has fine china and tableware, but she doesn't like to do the dishes. However, we fancy Persian kitties only eat from the best and Mom Paula wouldn't dare feed us from paper plates. It's the holiday season, so why not bring out the best plates and bowls to eat that holiday turkey!

Mom Paula loves to find fancy bowls for us to eat our delicious and nutritious cat food.

Thankful Thursday

We want to thank everyone for visiting us during our 12 Days of Catmas holiday celebration! The last major holiday item was shared yesterday, but we do have several more items to share with you over the next few days. In the meantime, Truffle and Brulee are keeping a watch for Santa Claus.

12 Days of Catmas - SHERPA® Comfort Ride™ Pet Carrier

Travel as a First Class Jet Setter

It's the holiday season and we know many of our cat-owners (and other pets) travel for the holidays. We know there is a lot involved in preparing for travel with a pet in cars, so we can't imagine what is needed for airline travel. We've never traveled on an airplane, but we know we need to be prepared in case there is a need.

According to a few of our friends to do fly with their pets, it's not too difficult as long as you prepare in advance and have the appropriate carrier that is approved by the airline.

12 Days of Catmas - Wellness®

Eat a Healthy Species-Appropriate Food

Cats are obligate carnivores and therefore, need to eat a species appropriate diet that helps them meet their nutritional needs through eating food with a large amount of animal-based proteins (meat and organs). Cats lack specific metabolic (enzymatic) pathways and can't ultilize plant proteins as efficiently as animal proteins. A cat's nutritional needs are different from those of dogs and humans who can live on a vegetarian diet (we don't recommend this for dogs). A cat should never be fed a vegetarian or vegan diet. Cats need specific vitamins, minerals, and proteins that only come from meat.

12 Days of Catmas - Triple T Studios™

Organize with Stylish Sophistication

We've talked about how we're pampered and expect only the best items to relax in, play with, and travel. But what about our humans? Don't they deserve to be pampered while they are taking care of us? Don't they need something with stylish sophistication to keep organized?

12 Days of Catmas - Coryelle Kramer, Animal Communicator

Communicate Your Needs

Humans can communicate verbally to let us know what they need (although sometimes we wish they didn't). Ahem... Back to the point of this post, humans can tell you what they want or need. We cats have to demonstrate our wants and needs through body language or our distinct meows.

12 Days of Catmas - Sure Petcare

Keep Food Fresh with Style

Everyone loves to eat, especially around the holidays. Humans are very careful to keep food sealed until ready to eat in order to maintain freshness, health, and taste. We believe our cat food should receive the same courtesy so we can enjoy our food not only during the holidays, but year round.

12 Days of Catmas - Bavarian Cat Toy™

Get a Little Wild & Have Fun

Even though we are pampered Persian who enjoy living the lifestyle we've grown accustomed to by having all our needs catered to by the staff (Mom Paula), we also like to let our fur down every once in a while a get a little wild!

12 Days of Catmas - Eye Envy®

Pamper Yourself with a Cleansing Facial

Silver Shaded Persians are not only known for their beautiful silvery white fur, but for their engaging green eyes. The standard, according to the Cat Fancier's Association (CFA), is that the eyes are either green or blue-green. Silver Shaded Persians are born with blue eyes and they slowly change over the first three years to their beautiful green color that enhance their wide-open and sweet expressions.

Half Way Point

Would you believe we're already halfway through our 12 Days of Catmas holiday celebration?!? We're so excited about everyone who has visited us so far and we promise more exciting days and giveaways. We want to thank all of our sponsors who've donated items to help celebrate this wonderful holiday season with our cat and dog blogging friends.

Thank you for all of your good thoughts for Brulee. She appears to be doing okay, although a little subdued (probably because of the medication). She did agree to pose for the Sunday Selfie today.

Today didn't start out like a normal Saturday. Mom Paula woke up earlier than usual and surprised both of us by putting us in our Sleepypod® Mobile Pet Bed and off to the vet we went.

Drink Plenty of Water

It's the holiday season and that usually means eating a lot of food you shouldn't eat and drinking different types of beverages. Experts tell us that humans should make sure to stay hydrated with water during the holiday season to stay fresh and healthy. It's also important to keep your pets hydrated during the holidays and Winter months.

12 Days of Catmas - Petmate®

Engage in Mental Stimulation

There always seems to be more activity during the holiday season which can really wear us out! We do sleep a lot already (16-20 hours a day) but we can also get into mischief if we aren't kept mentally stimulated through appropriate play.

12 Days of Catmas - Sleepypod®

Indulge in Regal Comfort and Security

We admit - we are a little spoiled. Okay, maybe a lot spoiled! We feel we have justification for being spoiled based on the history of the Persian cat.

Love Your Curves

It's always amazing the different poses cats can do, especially when they are resting or giving themselves a bath. Sometimes we think cats created many of the yoga poses people try to do because they are so limber.

Find a Special Place for a Get Away

Does your cat ever disappear when there is a lot happening in your home? Does your cat need a special place to find solitude?

Brulee and Truffle don't normally cuddle close together since about 3 years ago. However, recently Mom Paula has caught them resting closer together than usual. It appears both girls want to sleep on the pink Peggy Blankie.

The 12 Days of Catmas

We found a new design on LunaPic today for our holiday Caturday Art. It was the Christmasy Art Effect and then Needlepoint.  We love the red and green and how you can still clearly see the outline of Truffle and her bed.

Get Plenty of Exercise and Sleep!

The holidays can be an exciting time for cats and humans, but it's important to monitor your cats to see if they are getting enough exercise and sleep during this potentially stressful and tiring time.
