Catsmas has arrived! Since kitties should not be treated as commodities to be bought and sold, the responsible way to obtain a cat is through adoption or rescue. But when you adopt or rescue a cat, you very seldom know his or her date of birth! How will you know when to celebrate your kitty’s birthday if you don’t know when that is!? That’s what Catsmas is all about!
If you don’t know exactly when your cat was born, celebrate his or her birthday on December 24. Yeah, I know that cats aren’t generally born in December, but chances are your cat doesn’t know this. Plus, I’ve heard that a few non-cat based religions have major holidays in December, and I don’t want any cats to be forgotten or left out in the cold during all the celebrations at this time of year. So decorate a cat tree with cat-friendly ornaments, give your cat a snuggle if you find him or her standing under a sprig of catnip and, if your cat has been a good boy or girl, prepare for a visit from Santa Claws!
This year we nominated Brother Henry to play the part of Santa Claws. He was thrilled to have been chosen!
So go enjoy some delicious catnip nog and celebrate the birth of your feline friends. Then, get out there and stock up on cardboard containers for Box Day on December 26!
Meowy Catsmas to all, and to all a good night…until we wake you up really early in the morning so you can make our breakfast.
