The morning of our holiday gift guide photo shoot for this month’s issue was a gathering of the tails unlike anything seen before at Martha Stewart Living. Shuffling around the kitchen were Mickey, Millie, and Willow, some of our favorite fur-covered coworkers. Mickey, photo editor Linda Denahan’s eight-year-old rescue, was not so enthusiastic about his assignment: modeling a super-soft fur-lined sleep sack.
With a little wiggling and some gentle coercion from associate art director Katie Field (pictured above), Mickey eventually snuggled up inside — but not without giving the camera his best steely gaze.
