We all have our other children. Those 4 legged animals who some how find their way into our lives. For me, I have 2 of them. Tabby our cat who we found in a Walmart parking lot. A family was trying to give away kittens to anyone who would take one. Riley our pooch who we adopted from a shelter. We heard puppies were there, we scouted which one we wanted and we waited for days till they were finally ready to be taken home. We were the first there and she was ours.
Our animals are treated like our children. Nothing but the best for them and we love them all the same. So why not treat your loving animals at Christmas too? You could make these treats for special occasions or just because you love them.
