Being fans of all things autumn and Halloween, we love this blog hop even more when it ties in with JNW's Halloween Challenge. Today is Day 8 of this festive challenge, and the prompt is corn maze/hay ride. We really had to think about this one. We considered going all Stephen King's "
We wanted the drawing this week to be fun. Well, it was fun for this human, and certainly for Astrid, but the kitties? Maybe not for them so much. Sorry, my furry felines. I just couldn't help myself.
So, anybuddy else want a fast and furious hay ride?
Happy Caturday to all!
Our Tip of the Day:
We've talked before about how feeding pumpkin to your furbaby can be beneficial. Pumpkin is, as we've said, high in fiber, which means it can be of use to a furbaby suffering from constipation, as well as to one suffering from diarrhea. But did you know that pumpkins are so much more than that? The aforementioned fiber of pumpkins is also beneficial in combating hairballs, and can also aid with weight loss as it helps a furbaby feel more full. Pumpkins also happen have high moisture content, which can make it a great dietary supplement for furbabies who eat primarily dry food. Pumpkins are also high in potassium, vitamin A, vitamin C, calcium, iron, anticancer beta-carotene, and other antioxidants. Therefore, it might not hurt to see if your furbaby would enjoy the occasional treat of pumpkin. You are welcome to prepare pumpkin yourself by carving, cooking, and pureeing it. But, you can also simply purchase plain pureed pumpkin in a can, as long as you avoid pie filling that has added spices, sugar, and other ingredients that your furbaby would best not have added to their diet. You can offer pumpkin as a small meal or treat, or you can add it in to their existing food. Of course, not all furbabies will like pumpkin, so be sure to test it out first. And if in doubt about whether your furbaby should have it, or how much, consult their veterinarian. All in all, though, pumpkin can be a great treat for your kitty or pup for more reasons than one.
