Pet Blogger Bloopers Roundup and Friendly Fill-Ins for December 9

Pet Blogger Blooper

We have been having a lot of fun this year sharing She of Little Talent's awful photos on the Pet Blogger Bloopers Roundup, a blog hop hosted the second Friday of every month by The Lazy Pit Bull. (Finally, a pet blogging event celebrating pure ineptitude—old SoLT has been waiting her whole life for this!)
We have been holding the following picture of Real Cat Webster specifically for the Bloopers Roundup. What happened was, old SoLT was on the floor trying to get sophisticated shots of Webs in the little bed, and Webs yawned (as you do when you're in your bed). This is the beginning of the yawn:

And this is the shot old SoLT was going for:

Friendly Fill-Ins

And now to Friendly Fill-Ins, from 15andmeowing and McGuffy’s Reader. They are a fun way to learn a little bit about the authors of the blogs you read. The first two questions, answered by Old SoLt, are from Ellen of 15andmeowing, and the next two, answered this week by Real Cat Webster, are from Annie of McGuffy’s Reader.

Old SoLT’s answers:

1. I love the following Christmas film(s): The Nightmare Before Christmas (doubles as a Halloween film!), Miracle on 34th Street, A Charlie Brown Christmas (counts as a film, right?)

2. I don't care for the following Christmas film(s): It’s a Wonderful Life, A Christmas Story—they’re all right, but I’ve never understood what all the hoopla is about with these movies.

Real Cat Webster’s answers:

3. At the holidays, I cannot resist napping under the Christmas tree for hours and hours.

4. A favourite holiday memory of mine is when I napped under the Christmas tree last year. Good times!


  1. Cute blooper. Thank you for participating in the fill-ins, I enjoyed both sets of answers. I don't see the hoopla of the films in #2 either. I cry all the way through It's a Wonderful Life so now I just skip it,I want to be happy at the holidays. Kitties do love Christmas trees, I bet it is warm under there with all the lights. Have a nice weekend!

  2. I love A Christmas Story, because I can relate in the time period. But, I do not like A Nightmare Before Christmas! It is interesting to see people's answers. No one naps under the tree here, but they do stalk it!

  3. Webster, could you be any cuter??? You look so cozy in your bed. And how did I forget Nightmare Before Christmas when I wrote my answers? I love that one too.

  4. It's a Wonderful Life can be sort of depressing as one sees George trying to follow his dreams and being stopped from that. In the long run, George sees what an impact he has made on the lives of others and how important each life is. Have a Merry Christmas and a great week.

  5. The point of It's a Wonderful Life is that George Bailey learns how very much he is loved and needed, that no ones life would be the same without him. It is a lesson meant for all of us, that we all make a difference in the lives that we touch.

    Have a blessed day and a very Merry Christmas!
