Christmas Trees, Cats & Giving Back

WAFFLES:  Hey Boss, this Christmas tree looks a little funny. Where's all the bushy needles and dangly toys and stuff?



KATIE:  Apparently Glogirly still doesn't trust you with the real thing, so she's going with a sparse wintry theme this year. Way to go, Waffles. Your Chrisstmas tree and ornament indiscretions have resulted in BOTH of our losses. 



WAFFLES:  Yeah, well it's not like you've never played with one of those dangly ornament things.



KATIE: I've also never knocked down the whole tree. There's that



 WAFFLES:  It was crooked. It just needed a little push to the right. Or was that the left?




Giving Tuesday and the Best Friends $2 Million Holiday Match


Now that our holiday lights are twinkling here at the Townhouse, we're ready to kickoff the holiday season with our shelter cat friends at Best Friends Animal Society. In the spirit of giving, we're very excited to share a special event with you.

Tomorrow is the official digital kickoff day for the annual Best Friends Animal Shelter's $2 Million Holiday Match Event. It's inspired by Giving Tuesday, a global day dedicated to giving back. Giving Tuesday was created by the 92nd Street Y and United Nations Fund in 2012 with the goal of starting a movement about charitable giving at the beginning of the holiday season.



Thanks to an incredibly generous group of donors, all holiday Best Friends gift donations will be matched up to a total of $2 million dollars.

Starting at 10:30 am EST on Tuesday, December 1, Best Friends will be posting hourly videos on their social media channels, including FacebookTwitter (@bestfriends) and Instagram (@bestfriendsanimalsociety). The live videos will include co-founder and CEO, Gregory Castle, as well as shots from as well as shots from the Best Friends kitten nursery in Los Angeles.

Learn more about the event and how to donate at Best Friends Animal Society Giving Page.

  4. I'm really excited about the Best Friends event! I think it is MORE awesome than a Christmas tree (which we didn't get last year anyway).

  10. We had to MOL at ornament indiscretions. Our tree has very few breakable things on it. The head peep wasn't going to put one up here, either, but she felt bad that we would not have the chance to sleep under it this year, so she did yesterday. Can you sleep under those stick things?

  12. Waffles, our humans' very first cat, Skooter, pulled the Christmas tree down right when company was coming up our front walk. We all wish we'd been here to see it. We love Glogirly's winter wonderland look. Bet you can still find a way to wreak some havoc. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

  13. Momma was pretty concerned about putting up our tree with my new sister, but so far Jessie has totally ignored the tree after one investigatory sniff. Good girl!

  17. Those trees look pretty.... and maybe a little tasty? Our mom likes the sparser look this year too. She swears it's not because of us. We wonder if she'd swear to that in court...

  18. I think Glogirly's branches are beautiful. I was worried about Mudpie and my tree but so far, so good!

  19. At least you have lights on the tree. I’ve never played with our trees or ornaments although Autumn knocked the tree down one year. Giving Tuesday is a wonderful idea and I’m glad it was born in NYC. TW once saw Patti Smith do a poetry reading at the 92nd St. Y.

  20. Mum got out a little tree that is all flashy. Derby used to chew on it so it went in the box for years.
