Santa-Paws is Coming to Town! Has the holiday season got you in the Christmas spirit? Do you have an adorable, beloved family pet? If so, then the Louisiana Holiday Trail of Lights crew has just the thing for you! We all love our family pets, and they definitely love us back. Sometimes, they’re just so amazing that you want to show them off to everyone. To get an idea of how pets are a huge part of the family and even the holiday season, we asked Brittinie Deville, a member of Alley Cat Allies, what her pet means to her. “My cat means the world to me and makes the holidays that much more enjoyable,” she said. “She loves to watch the twinkling lights and the dangling ornaments, but her favorite part is her infamous race to the top of our Christmas tree. She is the true definition of a curious cat and her curiosity through this holiday season has kept us in stitches. The holidays can be very stressful but having her to come home to every day is the best stress relief I could ask for. If she is not making me laugh she is showing me love and what more could one need?” Many more families feel the same as Brittinie. So this holiday season, we decided to give you the perfect opportunity to show off your furry friend HTOL style. Give your family pet a makeover by dressing them up in their best Christmas costume and snap a picture. Enter it into our Santa-Paws competition for a chance to win 1 of the 5 prizes we have lined up for the top 5 submissions.
