How to Get Your Fur Baby in the Holiday Spirit
Christmas is just around the corner and you know what that means. ‘Tis the season to deck the halls, string twinkling lights on window frames, break out the tree and dress Shadow in his favourite Christmas costume for the annual family photo. Here are some great ideas to invoke the true spirit of the holidays with fashionable fun for the whole family.
Ah, the classic Santa hat — every pet’s standby costume for bringing that little bit of extra merriment into the household. When you place that special, pointed, crimson cap on Fluffy’s head, you can really see her cheeks rouge with jolly, good cheer. One could potentially confuse that flush with exacerbated embarrassment or pure rage, but you know better. Fluffy loves Christmas.
Aside from food, gifts, and general sloth-like behavior, Christmas is about being fabulous at holiday parties. And that certainly shouldn’t be relegated to 2-legged animals only. Surely Misty and Winston deserve to mingle with the beautiful people. Go classic Hollywood with a tux or add a little glam with a tinsel boa. The next day, be sure to look out for any special gifts left behind sofas and dressers as a personal thank you for last night’s makeover.
Nothing says cozy at Christmas better than a festive holiday sweater. Most heat escapes from our heads so Buddy probably needs a hat too. And what about his little ears? They need insulation. Probably should throw a scarf in there for good measure. Who’s a cozy boy?
The more minimal of Christmas costumage, the headband antlers are a fur baby favourite. If your pets could speak human, surely they’d say, “I love moonlighting as a reindeer. In fact, I love it so much, I’m going make sure I eat all the garbage before I lick your face tonight.”
