Toesies Tuesday

It's time for an episode of Toesies Tuesday! Are you ready? Here it is:

We've been getting so much sun lately, even Astrid's toesies have been basking in it.

Another shot of Evan in his pink bed, this time starring his toesies.

This isn't as scary as it looks. Wolverine Thimble is just doing some kneading here, making some delicious biscuits and all that good stuff.

Our housemate Toby wanted to show off his toesies in all of their fuzzy glory. I call these his mittens.
So, do you notice a certain kitty missing above? A little lady named Eddy, perhaps? Well, that's because active Eddy decided that she didn't really want to cooperate for a toesies photo shoot. After all, her toesies were far too busy bouncing off of walls, batting things around, and making biscuits. But, she didn't leave me totally empty-handed. Instead of Toesies Tuesday, Eddy went for something that I guess can only be called Toothy Tuesday. It looks a little something like this:

I'll be the first to admit that this picture sort of looks a bit concerning at first glance. Keep in mind, though, that this little lady came to me as a special needs kitten, with a head tilt and right-sided facial nerve paralysis. She still has both, and the facial nerve paralysis means that her lip often puckers, leaving her cute little teeth exposed, and this is especially the case when Eddy is relaxed and happy. That being said, the above picture was quickly snapped during a snuggle session.

Our Tip of the Day:
Walks, potty breaks, and any and all contact with concrete and the outdoor elements can leave your dog's paw pads less than soft and smooth. If your dog's paw pads are dry and/or cracked, though, it's not necessarily advisable to apply human lotion to them, as this could possibly soften the paw pads too much and thereby lead to more damage. However, it is important to moisturize your dog's paw pads if they are showing signs of dryness and cracking. In some cases, a little petroleum jelly may do the trick. But, there are also moisturizers specifically created for dogs and their paw pads. Many veterinary offices, pet stores, and online vendors carry such products. Of course, if you're concerned about your dog's paw pads and how to moisturize them, be sure to consult your veterinarian.

  1. Great toesie and toothy shots. We didn't realize that Eddy had problems too. Looks like she does very well. And you are a good person to take care of all those kitties and that Astrid too.

  6. Our mom once did a post where she showed only our toes and had a contest to see if anyone could identify all eight of us by just our toes. Only one person got it right. We think you should let Eddy have a regular Toothy Tuesday post. She looks so cute! XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calsta Jo
