It’s that time of year again! Festive decorations, presents, visitors, and all-around merriment. For us, the holidays are fun, but they can defi- nitely be tough on our cats: strangers coming in and out, yummy food
we won’t let them eat, and that strange tree that shows up in the corner
of the room only once a year.
Luckily, my cats are pretty easygoing. They think the Christmas tree is
weird, but they enjoy napping under it, and if there are too many people
in the house, they find another room to hang out in. For them, the best
part about Christmas is the pile of wrapping paper we leave for them to
play in before we head out to spend the day with family
If your cats have a hard time getting into the holiday spirit, check out
our article on the five biggest holiday feline freakouts. Hopefully, some
of the expert tips will help make the holidays a time of peace — not
panic — for your feline friends.
Another tradition this time of year is the making — and breaking — of
New Year’s resolutions. Mine usually last just a few days. Maybe it would
be easier to keep them if they weren’t just about me. In that spirit, we’ve
got 10 easy-to-keep resolutions you can make to improve your cat’s
health and well-being in the new year.
From all of us at Catster, we wish you and all of yours the happiest of
holidays and the best of new years!
Agatha’s New Year’s resolution
is to never model kitty
hats for me again.
Wrap It Up
Our art director, Lil, vacationed in
Hawaii and came across the Lana’i
Cat Sanctuary, an open air sanctuary
that is home — and heaven — to
more than 500 cats. These lucky kitties get to romp around in the fresh
air, and they love human visitors.
The sanctuary loves matchmaking — all of the cats are available
Meanwhile, senior group editor,
Melissa, spent a few days in New
Orleans. She spotted these cuties
in Louisiana Loom Works on
Chartres St. All of the cats in the
shop are rescues; the white one
is a Hurricane Katrina survivor.
