Noel found her Xmas present when I set it aside to wrap. The cats are always helping. I think that it scared her when it made noise (you will hear it in the video if your sound is on). She drops it and then is not sure what to do. After this video, she jumped down off the ledge into the box that you see Mini very interested in. If one cat is in a box, you know all the other cats want it. Well of course they do, it is Caturday and Boxing-day all in one.
I cannot imagine a life without cats!
There is magic in the air.
There are lots of boxes and bows and things to play with.
All our people, large and small, are zooming this year.
We love Christmas morning. It is a special day. And we will let nothing stop it from being that way. We will still watch our loved ones open their stockings and wow at their gifts, even though it’s through a camera (so, we might send a gif).
Christmas day at the DogDaz Zoo humbles us every year, as we celebrate how lucky we are to be a family, to be together, to be warm, to be fed, and most of all, to be loved.
May the light of the season guide you and bring you peace.

I loved this holiday decoration (picture from 2016). This year when I went to set it up, I found that a mouse had eaten a hole in the snowman (I keep this stuff in the garage). I went to find a replacement on the internet but they wanted a ton of $$ for it. I bought it originally at a discount store for a good price since I try to not spending too much on the decorations. I am sad. It was a fun one. But we do get to enjoy it in pictures. So this year I got to buy something new :-). Do you have decorations you love year after year?
Just another DogDaz morning at the zoo ❤
Mom said that many humans think that today marks the end of the world. Actually, she wishes that today would mark the end of the violent world as we know it and the beginning of a new peaceful one with no more killing of innocents or war or any hate stuff. But alas, we have been told that our Mom is a big dreamer.
For us, today is the first day of winter, and hopefully, that means that white stuff will start falling from the sky soon. We love white stuff. It is fun to eat and romp in. We really do hope the sky falls soon.
Mom’s family came from Northern Europe and there they celebrated a festival at midwinter called Yule. We like festivals. From today on in the Northern Hemisphere, the days will start to get lighter and that is really welcome.
From A to Z, it seems like most cultures needed festivals at this time of year to help them survive the winter. Mom started to tell us all their names and became overwhelmed: Beiwi, Brumalia, Chawmas, Christmas (we know that one), Maidyarem, Dongzhi, Goru, Hanukkah (we know that one too), Hogmanay, Inti Raymi, Junkanoo, Karachum, Koleda, Wren Day, Lenaia, Lohri, St Lucy’s Day….. So we decided we are going to celebrate every day because somewhere, someone is, so we will too!
Happy Solstice everyone and may the sky fall on your head and you catch it on your tongue and taste its sweetness – SNOW BALL FIGHT!!!!!
Throw the snow ball at someone and let us know who in the comments so we can throw one at them too!
