Mancat Monday: The Doorman

Today Evan is here to show off, well, our front door.


Evan loves the front door.


He loves sleeping on the welcome mat at the front door, he loves looking out the front door, and he loves greeting his mom at the front door when she comes home from work (for the record, this momma loves this part of the day just as much as Evan does!).


Obviously, Evan is our resident doorman. And, he takes his job very seriously.


Sometimes, though, being doorman can be quite tiring.


Sleeping on the job, Evan?

Wishing all of our furiends a happy Monday! We hope this week treats everybuddy well!

Our Tip of they Day:
Our tip from yesterday mentioned putting your kitty's food up on an elevated surface (such as a counter or table) to protect it from any resident dogs, toddlers, or other cat food thieves. Today, we'll touch upon the opposite option. As mentioned yesterday, there are some kitties, such as those who are old and/or arthritic, who may not be able to reach an elevated food bowl. If your kitty falls under such a category, or if you simply don't wish to put the food bowl on an elevated surface, you can try keeping it out of reach of any dogs or toddlers by placing it in some sort of cubby where only your kitty can fit. This could even be a makeshift eating cubby, such as one made from an upside down cardboard box or Rubbermaid container with a little kitty-sized door cut out. There are also certain pieces of furniture on the market with cubbies such as this already built in. Using such a feeding station can also come in handy if trying to help an overweight kitty lose weight in a multicat home - so that your other kitty or kitties don't have to go on a diet, you can place their food in an eating cubby with a door through which an overweight kitty cannot fit. Of course, in the end, only use an eating cubby if your kitty is willing to eat in an enclosed space.

You look great hanging out at the front door, Evan!

I like to hang by the door too especially at mealtime when I'm hoping the Chinese delivery person will be on the other side of it.

those are cool shots! You are probably too young to remember this, but on the old Mary Tyler Moore show there was a guy named "Carlton The Doorman" wait...maybe he was on "Rhoda"? Either way I am sure you are too young to remember xoxo catchatwithcarenandcody
