Mancat Monday: Eye of the Tiger

We've reached another Monday. I hope everybuddy had a wonderful weekend! Now, to help you get your week started, here's a picture of my momma's boy Evan in his favorite snuggle pose:


And, here's a picture of this tiger's eye:


Let's be honest, my goal in the above shot was to get a close-up of my boy Evan's eye open. But, having freshly awoken from a nap, he refused to shake off his squinty-eyed expression.

Happy Monday, furiends!

Our Tip of the Day:
As we all know, the eyes are a very significant part of any animal's body. It's important to pay close attention to your furbabies' eyes on a daily basis, as not only are they susceptible to disease themselves, but they can also indicate if an animal is ailing elsewhere in the body. Along with posture, an animal's eyes can give clues as to if the animal is in any pain or discomfort throughout his or her body, such as with dilated pupils, squinting, or elevation of the third eye lids. Those can also be signs of disease in the eye itself, as can redness, swelling, discharge, color change, and any other abnormal observations. Given the importance of the eyes, and given their link and proximity to the brain, consult your fubabies' veterinarian if you see any abnormalities or have any concerns.

  3. Evan is a cutie. Great tip, if one pupil is dilated, it is very bad- I learned that the hard way.
