Attending a “Friendsgiving” Thanksgiving soiree this holiday? We asked Miss Kitty Pretty Girl, aka Miss Kitty, aka Miss K, aka The CatCon Muse to offer up her advice that every well-MEOWnered guest needs to know. Whether you’re Team Stuffing or Team Green Bean Casserole, we all wish you and your fur babies a very Happy Thanksgiving!

What to Bring

If you have special dietary needs, it’s polite to bring your own dish.

I’d share my recipe for “Wet Food Surprise,” but it’s a family secret.

Never show up empty handed. I find that boxes make the very best gifts.

Mind your manners!

Best paw forward! A good thorough grooming before arrival is just common courtesy.

For goodness sake, arrive on time!

This is me the last time a guest was late to one of my dinner parties. Believe me, they won’t be doing THAT again.

During the Meal…

Follow your host’s seating chart.

Sure, you deserve the best chair, but you don’t want to make things awkward.

Compliment the chef!

Even if you know you’re going to need to hit the In n’ Out drive thru on the way home.

Don’t overindulge. The holiday season is long and full of temptations– remember, this is a marathon, not a sprint.
