Though this kitty definitely looks to be taking the holidays in stride, I think this Spark is a good reminder for all of us who share our homes with furry friends.

The author of today’s Spark is Justin Scott Hartley. He is a 43-year-old, American actor. Since 2016, he has starred in the NBC drama series “This Is Us,” for which he was nominated for the Critics’ Choice Television Award for Best Supporting Actor in a Drama Series.

In all honesty, I must divulge that Hartley began his quote with, “I am a dog lover.” Being a cat blog, I made a decision to leave that part off.

As I’ve been reminding you for months, Sparks is the creation of Annie from McGuffy’s Reader. Sparks began as a blog hop, created by our friend. Annie stated when she began Sparks,“I believe we are meant to be lights in this world. If we allow our light to shine, we can see where we are going. It is then that we can begin to truly see each other clearly. Together, we can light up the entire world.”

I delved into the archives for today’s Awww Mondays blog hop submission. This photo is from December 21, 2019. I think you’ll recognize the handsome man cat playing Santa is this photo.

We certainly do need to consider our pets’ stress levels during the holidays. Mau made a handsome Santa.
