Pets of all kinds have shared Yvonne's life. They seem to find her when they are in need and she helps them find their forever home.

Blaze Cat's Guide to Holiday Cards

The holiday season is a joyous time, but is a little cold for my taste. My humans build a fire in the fireplace for me and the dogs and they decorate the mantle with Christmas cards and with big and little stockings with our names on them. Sometimes they put treats and toys in the socks.

Our kind humans also send holiday cards to their family and friends. This year they let us, the felines of our household, pick out these Christmas cards and some have matching postage stamps, too. Since we, the she cats, are such angels (unlike that orange mischievous Dax Cat), we picked out some cards depicting angel cats. We also chose ones with pictures of other regal felines and some with birds, mice and other prey, too. Oh, and we also picked out a couple with dogs because our Rio and 2nd Chance are okay as far as dogs go.

Blaze Cat Remarks

Dax may call me a tattletail, but pictures don't lie! As you can see in our group card, "Santa's Hat" by our lady, naturegirl7, he is nothing but a troublemaker. He even scared Santa Paws away and took his hat!

Unlike Dax, we girls, Star Noir, Pepper and I, want to show our human friends how much we appreciate them by suggesting holiday cards for cat lovers. There are so many delightful ones out there that bear our images.

Here are a few of our favorites on Zazzle.

Holiday Cards and Postage

Selected by Ms. Blaze Cat and Friends

Lost and Found Postage

Lost and found by JellyRollDesigns touches my heart. I was lost or taken from my mother but was later found by 2 special humans.

Angel Cats

We cats are so close to celestial beings. It is simply delightful that such dear humans have captured these lovely visions so adeptly. I simply adore these card and hope that my lady will purchase some for us to send out during this joyous season.

White Persian Angel Cat

I simply love this WHITE PERSIAN ANGEL CAT HOLIDAY by BY_CYRA. It is so soft and majestic.

Guardian Angel of Pets

This big fellow is called Guardian Angel of Pets and is by grandfinalepro. He reminds me of Dax, though I've never seen him look this regal.

Cat's Guide to Christmas

Cats and the holiday season go together like holly and mistletoe. When you combine them, you come up with some beautiful designs and some funny ones, too.

This looks like the holidays at my tribe's house. Some of them even look like us.

This is how I envision Santa Paws... MEooow! I'm going to wait up for him this year. What a handsome and jolly elf.

Christmas Cartoon Kitten Cats JOY by zooogle
What silly kitties. They must be related to Dax. He acts just like that sometimes... but the scene is very joyful and makes you want to snicker.

Beautiful Holiday Birds

Birds like these provide hours of entertainment for us on those cold winter days. We thought you humans may enjoy them, too. This bright red one feeds right outside the window. Our lady tells us that we must not kill.

Holiday Joy from Our Tribe

Our tribe, as our human friends call it, is a happy one. We all found our forever home with these people after we experienced some hardship in our lives. They are good people who love all kinds of 4-legged and winged creatures. Our lady likes to take photographs of us and here are some that she made into holiday cards and postage stamps.

Christmas Cat Nap

Abigail was before my time. The story behind this picture is that she was napping one day and my lady put a little Santa hat on her head and snapped some photos. She was a sweet little cat that went across the rainbow bridge too soon.

Our tribe lives in harmony most of the time, except when Dax gets his tail in a kink and disturbs the tranquility. The American Humane Association is such a good organization which helps our kind.

 

Reindeer Rio

Rio was the best dog and he made a funny reindeer. There is a matching postage stamp, too.

Reindeer Rio was taken by my lady. Rio was a good dog and would let her put hats on him whenever she wanted. He and I used to play hide and seek when we were young.

The photo for Santa Chance Dog Card was a challenge to take. You should have seen what our kind lady had to go through to get 2nd Chance with the Santa's hat. He can be really grumpy and snappy. It should be called Bad Santa Chance.

Santa Chance Dog

2nd Chance growled at my lady when she put the hat on him. Oh my!

When Dax first came to live with us he would jump on me when I slept and play like this all the time! Thank goodness he finally grew up. His photo is called Christmas Kitten Dax Plays.

Mice and Other Prey

Our Lady cross stitched the animals onto fabric then took a picture of them to make these cards and stamps of mice and other prey. I sat in her lap while she worked. She thinks that they are cute. I think that they look delicious!

I have seen deer and bunnies like the ones in Snow Fawn and Bunny Cross Stitch. The bunnies hop around the yard and sometimes eat my lady's vegetables. I would chase them away if she let me go outside.


Snow Fawn and Bunny Cross Stitch

Our tribe of adopted and rescued cats and dogs have found a good home, but there are many others of our kind out there that have no home. Perhaps you will celebrate the season by adopting a pet from one of the animal shelters near you.
