Here it is Furiday again. Do yous all wealize how close Christmas is? Fanksgivin’ is only 3 showt weeks away. So we fawt we wuld share a foo of da dangers da holidays bwing fur yous furry furmily members. So as wiff all ow educational postys da rest will be written in hooman speak.
Most everybody has shared a little turkey or ham with their cat or dog at the holidays. After all we’re most likely right there askin’ for some. We sure did. Last year we got blessed with a turkey for Christmas and the whole time it was in the oven Lexi and me sat in the kitchen watching it. And when mommy took it out, she couldn’t have moved if she wanted too. The aroma filled the house and made our mouths water. But there are some things that might be on your holiday table that aren’t as safe for us as that turkey. If you drink or serve alcoholic beverages, please don’t give any to your pets. It’s not funny to see us intoxicated and it could actually lead to coma or death. And of course most of you know that chocolate isn’t good for us, so just member to keep it out of our reach. Not all of us know to leave it alone. Nuts can cause all kinds of different problems for us as well as lots of fruits. So please keep the fruitcake to your self. And that morning cup of joe that mommy can’t seem to live without, it’s highly toxic to us kitties. We don’t need a caffeine high to hav a good time or bounce off da walls. Just get da bird on a string or wire. Raw yeast dough is another no no. Mommy loves to make fresh bread and donuts and we are drawn to the smell of the dough, but it is very toxic to us kitties. So if you’re a baker, keep your dough outta our reach. And most all of the root vegetables (those that grow under ground) are toxic too us. Sometimes it the leaves and not the actual vegetable, but to be on the safe side (if you can’t remember all of them) just keep all of it away from us. This is just a few of the foods that awe toxic to us. For a complete list, please go here.
Me just luvs da Jackson Galaxy Mojo Maker toys.
With all the advancements in pet nutrition, and all the brands on the market today we really don’t need your foods. Just provide us a well balanced diet and we’ll be happy. The occasional bite of turkey at Thanksgiving won’t hurt us, or even a few bites of that well loved bacon; but too much of a good thing is just as bad for us as it is for you. If you want what’s best for your pet, read the labels of the food you buy. Educate yourself a little and know what to look for. Always remember us cats are meat eaters, and bad things happen when we don’t get enough meat. And even though dogs could survive being a vegetarian, they’re meat eaters too. A well balanced diet for everybody in the house will make us all happy and sassy. As the holidays draw even closer we will also be writing post on poisonous plants, and decorations. We hope you all plan to have great fun this holiday season for all your family members including those of us with fur. The holidays can be a lot of fun for us all if you just take a few precautions.

As fur da cawppet, they wanted mommy tu move all hers furniture so they kuld “du it wight.” Weez not suwe what they mean by dat, and NO mommy’s not movin’ hers furniture.
