Ruby Tuesday-4

During one of my more insane periods my daughter asked me to take her cat to visit Santa at PetsMart....and to please put the little reindeer antlers on her so it would look cute. I did it! Also, it was one of those days where everybody and their dog came to visit Santa, too...literally. The cat did not like the dogs, nor did she like Mrs. Claus jacking with her and her antlers. Mrs. Claus got herself clawed pretty good, too. If you look closely you will see that Santa is not sitting very closely...he didn't want to meet the same fate as did Mrs. Claus. I didn't realize it at the time, but some Angel or something caused me to keep my sunglasses on my face. It was probably lack of food or something that caused me to go along with this insane plan. I was a size 8 back then. Not so much anymore since I quit smoking 17 months ago.

Our Ruby Tuesday host is Mary, the Teach. On Tuesdays you can post any photo you like (it must be one of your own) that contains the color RED. Your photo can contain lots of RED or a little bit of RED


  1. It is a cute image!
    Like the ornament as well.
    Happy Ruby Tuesday!

  2. Cute. I can't imagine any of my cats doing very well in a big crowd... well, maybe Angel. She's very social, but like most cats sh likes to be in control. Funny story. Happy Ruby Tuesday.

  3. The sunglasses were to protect the innocent! Hihi!!
    Cute picture!

  4. I can think of only one cat of mine who would have taken a photo with Santa! My beloved JR - he was the most mellow creature on earth.

    I admire your courage in attempting it

    The PetSmart near me does this and I always stop by to watch the chaos and fun.

  5. I'm thinking YOU win TOP PRIZE for best PET NANA! Krysti has always wanted me to take Jewl down to one of these things... I haven't. I tell her, she has a car - SHE can take Jewl to see Santa! I'll take LUZ to see Santa! Even Mom! I'll take Mom! I'm not takin' the animals... nope... not doin' it! YOU are a great pet Nana!

  6. Good memories woof those kind of things. Good idea.

  7. I think this is so funny. I love your sense of humor about the whole thing. You will lose probably 10 lbs of the weight from quitting smoking. That is what I did when I quit several years ago. I never liked sweets until I quit smoking and now that is all I think about!

  8. What a great shot, Amber! Happy Ruby Tuesday! And don't worry about gaining some weight, it's much better to be smoke-free as I am... :)

  9. great picture and a funny story... love it
