#Cats This Week--#Feline Holiday Spirit by Karen Rose Smith

While the holidays are happy times for sharing with family and friends, they can also be a time of stress and anxiety with everyone rushing to complete their preparations. I thought it would be fun to take a look at the Smith felines as they begin their holiday gift buying, wrapping and decorating.  

Paddy uses a piece of ribbon to begin
decorating the feline scratching house.

Zoie checks the bathroom closet
for decorations to assist Paddy.
We decided to use an animal print decorating
theme this year and Zoie picks the throw
she would prefer on "her" bed.

Paddy checks the box to make sure nothing was missed
when unpacking a gift.
Paddy "helps" to box the gift and stays
close to "assist" in the wrapping.
Halo watches closely to assure that
everything is being done to her satisfaction.
As you prepare for the holidays, take time to breathe, relax and enjoy the beauty of the season. From my furry family to yours...Happy Holidays!



USA TODAY Bestselling Author Karen Rose Smith is an only child who delved into books at an early age. She learned about kindred spirits from Anne of Green Gables, solved mysteries with Nancy Drew and wished she could have been the rider on The Black Stallion. Yet even though she escaped often into story worlds, she had many aunts, uncles and cousins around her on weekends. Her sense of family and relationships began there. Maybe that's why families are a strong theme in her novels, whether mysteries or romances. Her 91st novel will be released in 2016.

Readers often ask her about her pastimes. She has herb, flowers and vegetable gardens that help her relax. In the winter, she cooks rather than gardens.  And year round she spends most of her time with her husband, as well as her four rescued cats who are her constant companions. They chase rainbows from sun catchers, reminding her life isn't all about work, awards and bestseller lists. Everyone needs that rainbow to chase.

Karen looks forward to interacting with readers. They can find her at the links below.
