Mancat Monday: Sun Puddles and Pancakes

Nothing warms the fur on your back like a lovely sun puddle. Or so says Evan, and pretty much all kitties worldwide.


It may be blinding, but it's also totally worth it.


Ah, soak it up.


Heavenly.

Evan is hoping that all of his furiends out there are having as lovely days as we are. Here's to sunshiney days!

Oh, but we can't forget today's art. Evan wanted today's piece to show off that it's not just the sun that captures his heart. No, siree. What else does Evan love? Well, his pink bed, chatting up a storm, his momma. Oh, and butter. Yep, when Evan's momma eats herself some buttered goodies, he's always there to help, and to beg.


This soon-to-be refrigerator magnet was created just for Evan and his love of butter. As always, Evan says I can have the pancakes, so long as he can have the buttery goodness on top. What a gracious boy he is.

Happy Monday, everybuddy!

Our Tip of the Day:
We gave a tip back in the summer about being cautious and careful with your kitty's skin in the sun, especially the skin of the ears or nose in direct, bright sunlight. Sunburn and other damage from the sun can indeed occur in our furbabies, and can ultimately result in skin cancer or other significant medical concerns. Just as in humans, sun damage can be most likely in kitties with light-colored fur and skin, such as white or orange kitties, or those with little to no fur. Although of course the summer sun may be the most most risky, please continue to monitor your kitty's sun exposure in the autumn and winter months. While the sun may not be as direct or perhaps as damaging in these cooler months of shorter days, it still gives off those ultraviolet rays that can be risky, especially when in its direct light for lengthy periods of time. If your kitty spends lots of times soaking up the sun outside or in a window, no matter the time of year, please keep a close eye on the skin of their ears and nose for any signs of damage. Protection from the sun, such as in the way of pet-safe sunscreen or even UV film for the windows, can be used if deemed necessary. If you are concerned about your kitty's sun exposure or the health of their sun-exposed skin, regardless of time of year, please consult your veterinarian.
