Sunday Selfie Shenanigans

We've reached another one of our favorite blog hops, which is that of the Sunday Selfies, hosted by our pals over at The Cat on My Head.


Some weeks, I have to beg my furbabies for even one meager selfie to share. This week, though, all of my little creatures decided to snap a shot for this fun blog hop.

Evan, of course, went for a photo by his beloved front door. He loves when the sun shines in, making for a glorious sun puddle, and making him look as if he has no ears...


Thimble, always the model...


Eddy, well, she of course snapped a wonderfully dark and blurry selfie to share with you all...


Astrid went on a day trip with us yesterday to visit family. That made for one tired pup who could barely, just barely stay awake to snap her selfie late last night...


I can't speak for quality, but I sure do love it when all of my furbabies agree on snapping a selfie. How did they do this week?

For today's art, I realized that I simply had not drawn enough of my sweet angel Rosie these days. Obviously, the way to fix that is to draw her all festive and hanging out in a stocking.


We hope everybuddy is having a merry Christmas season!

Our Tip of the Day:
Yesterday we gave a tip about always monitoring your furbabies when they are assisting you in helping wrap presents, especially when potentially dangerous items such as ribbon, scissors, and tape are involved. Today we're going to take that tip one step further and advise you to be careful when attempting to assist your furbaby if they have ingested a ribbon or other similar item. Sometimes, if an animal has ingested such an item, you might find a portion of it protruding from your furbaby's mouth or anus. In such a case, be very, very careful and cautious about pulling on the ribbon to remove it. This is in part because ribbon can cause lacerations to the esophagus and intestinal tract, especially if yanked on. Similarly, if your furbay's ingestion of a ribbon is evidenced by it protruding from the anus, you have to again be careful, as simply pulling on it could result in further damage, such as by perforation of the bowels if the ribbon has become lodged somewhere internally. If you find yourself in a situation with ribbon protruding from your furbaby, it is sometimes safe to very gently and slowly pull on the ribbon to see if it is easily removed and therefore only superficial. If you do this, though, and the ribbon is not easily removed or if it proves to be a long piece with no end in sight, or especially if your furbaby is acting uncomfortable or in any way displaying abnormal symptoms, it would be best to avoid risk of damage and to consult a veterinarian for professional advice on removal of the ribbon. Of course, to avoid such issues altogether, keep that ribbon out of reach of the furbabies in your life!

  9. I'm always amazed each week that you're able to get a selfie of each of your wonderful kitties. My boys will avoid the camera like the plague and most end up either of the back of their heads or the photo is blurry. bol

    Love that drawing of Rosie.
