Look at this lovely Cat sitting nicely and posing for the camera. It’s the perfect Holiday photo. I’m sure it didn’t last too long as this Cat has other thing in mind like attacking the ornaments and playing with the boxes and all the wrapping paper and ribbons!

Kitten Coloring Sheets
Here is a fun set of seven free kitten coloring pages from Kidsworld. I didn’t see any links to download the sheets but you should be able to get them by right clicking an image and selecting ‘Save image as…” from the menu and saving it to your desktop. You can easily print it out afterwards. Happy coloring!
Costs of Owning a Cat
This infographic on the Costs of owning a Cat or dog is geared towards pet insurance and Australian statistics. Even so, it does give you a rough idea of all the expenses involved in owning a Pet. It makes a handy reference to help you budget for your pet or if you plan on getting a new pet.
Cat Care Tip
The litter box is an essential part of caring for your cat. Get a litter box that is the right size for your cat. It can go in the laundry room or a spare room away from heavy traffic. Scoop the litter box and clean the sides daily to keep it usable for your cat. A complete litter change once a month should be done and use baking soda to reduce bad odors.
Cat Behavior Tip
To control where your cat scratches, teach her or him what they should scratch. Provide vertical, horizontal or slanted scratch posts with different surfaces depending on what your Cat prefers. Make them easy to get to and scent them with catnip. Cover areas and remove other items you don’t want them to scratch.
Christmas Gift Ideas

When it’s time to play this 3 way Cat Tunnel is a great place to exercise, scratch, run, jump and hide. This Cat tunnel is made from a soft suede material and each tunnel uses a spiral wire inside to hold it up safely.
This is a great combo pack of 20 assorted Cat toys with feathers, balls, catnip, mice and more. It’s a great way for your cat to burn off energy and keep themselves entertained while you’re away.
