Hi it’s Charly, KOIT's proud #CrazyCatLady. When I’m not hanging with my five furry family members, I’m volunteering with animals, enjoying a Bay Area microbrew or touring a dog-friendly vineyard. >^..^<

How precious are these Christmas Pig Angels at VegasPigPets of Las Vegas?

A card from some dear friends in Las Vegas. (Used to live there, and that's the truth!)

Here's a behind-the-scenes look at what should have been a very simple photo shoot.

Once I started to focus my attention on the card, the babies came running.
I don't know why! Did they think I had food and was holding out on them?
I just know that what was supposed to be very simple, took many tries to accomplish!


Oh well, those of us who are #crazycatladies wouldn't have it any other way! heart

Like to take your dog to the beach, park, outdoor dining, or your neighbor's pool?
I DO! Problem is, if there's no shade for my dogs, I leave early so they don't get overheated. And for this little guy, that's awfully soon.
SOLUTION!
ShadyPaws Sun Shade Portable Canopy. (Made in the USA.) I recieved this as an early Christmas gift, and it is the BEST GIFT EVER! I'm soo impressed.


Brooklyn stays in the shade, while I get some sun. And if I want, I can lay under it too!
Stake it in the sand. Also attaches to the top of a chair, but my GSD (r) likes it higher.
Very solid & sturdy. It's easy to carry anywhere, especially with it's own backpack!

ShadyPaws is "Kashi-cat approved".

Animals sense a storm (or any unnatural event, such as an earthquake, tornado, etc) long before it hits. Even if we don't get warning, there are ways we can help keep them calm, such as now during the Bay Area's #stormaggeddon!

1 - Spirit Essence Stress Stopper or Bach Rescue Remedy - a few drops in water bowls, in food, on ear tips and even mixed with water and spritzed on bedding & fur.
Human grade - These take the edge off people's anxiety, too!


2 - Thundershirts - Sasha & Brooklyn model theirs, as the storm continues to pound.




3 - Sound machine or radio (like 96.5 KOIT) played softly, to mask outside sounds.

I can say for a fact, these have all been keeping my dogs & cats calm and at ease.

Good for New Year's Eve , Chinese New Year & 4th of July fireworks, too!

Above: Tell someone you like (or love) they've been kinda naughty, with coal in their stockings! Activated Charcoal Soap from Route One Pumpkins in Half Moon Bay, CA. (Pumpkin & peppermint; great for dry patches, acne, eczema or psoriasis.)


Below: Perfect hostess OR host gifts, when you want to bring something other than flowers or a candle. Handcrafted pumpkin seed oil soaps, lotions & body butters.
And my new find, organic Pumpkin Facial Oil, which cleared up dry patches on my face when nothing else could. (I call it my miracle oil!)

Kashi loves them. Or maybe it's just the box. Doesn't matter, mommy loves them!

A Bay Area "must see" during the holidays - Fairmont San Francisco on Nob Hill.
Above: the infamous Gingerbread house, with Tina Rogers & Charly Kayle showing the scale. Gingerbread bricks, icing & candy are all real, but we resisted the temptation
to sample, which is strictly forbidden anyway!

The dog derserves a real gingerbread house too, in the decked out lobby.


23' Christmas tree!

This is one way to make sure they can see you coming!

Actually, my friend figured if her bike was just going to sit on her porch,
why not put it to good use? I love it!


*** MERRY CHRISTMAS! ***

I recieved this today. (Not the cats. Already had those!)
A box of Christmas gifts from Gus' parents.

Backstory: Gus was my fiance who I lost suddenly, unexpectedly & traumatically this past January. His parents and I have kept in touch over the last year. It has been a rough journey for all of us. They're wonderful people and I still consider them inlaws.

I am so touched by their thoughtfulness and generosity. There are presents in this box for me, and each dog and each cat. Obviously Marco & Kashi know some are for them. But they have to wait until Christmas to open them!

Quick note: The holidays can be extremely difficult for many. Everyone has suffered some sort of loss in their lives. Everyone is struggling with one or more issues.
Please, let's be more patient and more compassionate with everyone we come across. You NEVER really know what someone else is going through, no matter how it looks.

Nothing better for me, than my furbabies as part of the Christmas decorations.

Just as long as they're not tearing them down!

Luckily, they stopped that behavior long ago.
I'd like to think it's good pet parenting skills, but they're probably just good kitties!

I found the perfect spot to store my new Santa Hat, a gift from my friend Molly Blaisdell with Hook, Line & Thinker Public Relations.
>^..^< >^..^< >^..^< >^..^< >^..^< >^..^< >^..^< >^..^< >^..^< >^..^< >^..^<
Now she greets me with LUCKY holiday-feline energy when I walk in my door.
Of course this #CrazyCatLady (me) loves lucky cats!
