Holiday Happenings

The holidays are a busy time of year, and that has certainly been true for the Pawsitively Pets' household and crew. We've been busy working on our blog and doing lots of holiday product reviews this month. But we've also been busy doing lots of other stuff like shopping, wrapping Christmas gifts, decorating, cooking, and more.

Here's a look at some of the animal Christmas ornaments on my tree. I have many more pet ornaments than the two below, and shared some of them in a post last year. The one on the left is a hand-painted kitten by my mother. The one on the right is a little Beagle puppy ornament.


I mentioned that I've been busy shopping above. Online shopping included. This is the first year I've really gotten into shopping for things on the internet. Here's some of the stuff I've gotten so far.

First up, I ordered this cute Shetland Sheepdog Christmas ornament from For Love of a Dog Jewelry. It's a gift for my grandparents, because they have a Sheltie that looks just like the ornament. You might remember Bear, because he was recently featured on the blog.


I also bought a copy of Tales of a French Scent Hound written by our friend Emma from My GBGV Life. I bought Emma's book as a gift to my 9 year old daughter because she loves to read and she loves animals.


I've also been receiving some nice things from friends over this holiday season. I always love getting special stuff in the mail. It makes me all warm and tingly inside and it's very exciting!

I won this Shelter Cat Doll from my friend Texas the cat's blog who also now lives in Austin, TX like me! The Shelter Cat Doll is a Dream Pillow and smells really nice. My baby daughter loves it!


Shiner got this nice Christmas card with Santa and his reindeer from her pal @NancyCakeFace on Twitter.


And I got this nice holiday card from my friend Christina from the blog Peace, Love, & Whiskers.


And our friends Lee and Phod sent us a nice email holiday card. I'm thinking this is what I'm going to have to do this year. 


I've saved the most exciting thing for last. I ordered Nibblet a new cage from Petco! The cage is a little over 4 feet tall and she has way more room to run around. Her last cage was super small. So I'm really excited to be able to get her a nice new castle to play in. 


I really like the cage and was quite impressed with myself for putting it all together without any help. Except from Shiner who was snoopervising. I'll have to give you guys a better cage tour sometime.

Now, I've been thinking that perhaps Nibblet has room for a friend in her new castle. Who knows? We'll see...


Has the holiday season been keeping you busy?

For the first time, I'm joining the This 'N That Blog Hop hosted by 2 Brown Dawgs and Ruckus the Eskie.

  2. Nibblet's castle is amazing - and YES INDEED there's room for two in there! Love your ornaments and we too are doing the Christmas e-mail card this year - just not enough time for anything else I'm afraid!

    1. Rats are very social and usually do best in pairs or groups so I think a friend might be nice for her.

  16. Thanks so much for ordering my book. I know she will love it. Are you worried at all about someone (pet) tipping over Niblet's cage? Mom has a love for Gerbils, had many as a kid but she is so afraid that we dogs or cats would get into the cage somehow. I bet Niblet would enjoy a friend though.

    1. That cage is easy to move around and Shiner was able to move it. We put it in my bedroom and she can't move it where it's at now. There's also my baby, who likes to cause that sort of mischief sometimes. Shiner and Nibblet are friends anyhow. They like each other :)

  21. Looks like you guys are super busy this holiday season. I think we're going to have to do an e-card too. I'll have to ask DK to get on that soon. I'm also in the process of getting him to redo my blog banner. He'll have a lot to do for me soon!

    Niblet's cage is HUGE! He's one lucky rat.
