I am stay put this Christmas, so my kitty doesn't have to go to the cattery. She hates the cattery so this is probably the best holiday gift I can give her. Happy

36GD, yes, I'd say that is the best gift for your kitty-- MOMMY TIME!

Well, hummm... I got my dog a cat! LOL Actually we found a three legged, young female, who we think is pregnant outside our house the on the 28th of Oct, and brought her inside. She wasn't very skinny but eats like she's never seen food before. I think others in the neighborhood have taken pity on her and have been feeding her, and she seemed so tame, so we put notices up but no one has claimed her so far. (no collar). Our dog, Hershey loves cats and they are becoming very good friends now. BTW, our kitty's name is SUNDAE. You see, we name all of our pets after sweets. Started with a orange and white long haired tabby boy cat we adopted in Oregon state, 8 years ago (he passed away 2/13 of this year- broke our heart) named Butterscotch (came with the name-- BEST thing I EVER got at a yard sale, I'll tell ya that much!). Next was our choc lab boy, we adopted as a puppy 5 years ago, named him Hershey. Then for a little while we had a black and white kitten we named Oreo. (He never got along with the dog so after a couple of months, we found him a home with no dogs). And now, we have this girl, we named Sundae (oh yeah, we found her on a Sunday too). Here's her pix she's missing her rear right foot and lower leg. Healed up ok, and she's in no pain or distress with it.

I'll probably be making a scarf for my corgi. Her favorite color seems to be yellow (her name is Sugar Magnolia so it kinda makes sense), so she'll be getting a yellow scarf to go over her collar. My fiance, his mom, and I are taking care of this cute kitten we rescued from a gas station. Her name is Jane Doe since we couldn't think of anything else, lol. I'll probably make her some awesome kitten toys.

@Maytag Suzanne my cat looks a lot like your cat!

My parents don't celebrate Christmas so I've never been allowed to do anything for my pets, but we're normally away anyway. This year we'll be home though as we booked our holiday after the December rush

His name is Romeo =] He was a stray that was living in my street. My other cat became friends with him so we decided to keep him. We've had him for about a year now

Thanks Pam for sharing the link to the dog treats. I'm going to try making doggie bones cookies, and make my mom's little dog a cute gift.
