Wordless Wednesday: Pouty Puppy Strikes Again



***
Our Tip of the Day:
There's a reason we can't resist those puppy dog eyes. Scientific studies have proven that gazing into your furbaby's eyes, as well your furbaby gazing into yours, can lead to the release of the hormone oxytocin, which plays a part in love and emotional bonding. In the case of kitties, gazing can include those slow blink kisses we all know so well. And don't forget about petting, cuddling, and even playing, as all of these can also spur a release of oxytocin and therefore feelings of love and contentment and happiness. So, both for the sake of your furbaby and yourself, feel free to gaze into those puppy dog eyes!

I would love to gaze into those eyes but I don't think my cats would like me to do so!

Great shot of Astrid, she is usually turned more when looking out the window. I love doing blinky eyes with the kitties.
