Where Will Your Pets Be Christmas Morning?

Going home for the holidays gets a little tricky when you're the parent of a pet of any kind. While some small animals like rabbits, birds, fish, and hamsters are fine on their own for a night or two (assuming you have an auto-feeder set up), larger creatures like cats and dogs require more attention and a sitter or caretaker when you're away.

we always stay home on Christmas, and they're always behind the gate in the kitchen fussing because they can't be in with us. Then we let them in when we're done and they get to rip open a treat under the tree :) they have stockings, too :D (and my cat does too). My cat usually comes in and joins us and plays in the paper if he's awake, haha.

With us. Since our little Abbey is part of the family, she goes with us when we visit family members. She's always well behaved, so no one minds.

Luckily, my mom doesn't live too far away. We'll have a little morning event for our babies/cats, then visit my mom, then come home and be with the cats at night. When we do travel, though, they stay at home alone and are fed/watered/played with by friends of ours.

In bed with me, annoying me as I try to sleep in.

They will probably be sleeping in our bed! Then we'll wake them up, and get them to open their stockings :)

My cat will be with me at my parents, but in my room. My childhood dog will be in the living room and they do not get along. So to make for a smooth Christmas moring, she'll be laying on my bed napping in the sun. (Which she probably prefers anyway!)
