Closeups and More Cake Please

Evan decided that he hasn't been showing off his handsomeness well enough these days. So, for this Mancat Monday, he wanted to give you all a nice, good, up close and personal look at it.

He'll start you off with a sideways smoldering glare.

And now how about a better look at those dashing nose freckles?

And of course Evan can also do a pensive profile shot.

And how about those whiskers? Evan thought he'd sneak those in there, too.

Did any of our furiends get up close and personal on this Mancat Monday?

Now, for yesterday's furry foodie art, I drew our housemate Toby with an olive-heavy martini, in honor of his love for those little green fruits. Remember what I said, though, about having another foodie Toby piece to share today? You see, there are two types of human food for which Toby will hunt you down. Olive is one of those. And the other? Strawberries!

We hope everybuddy has a delicious Monday!

Our Tip of the Day:
Keep in mind that it is not all that uncommon for some kitties and pups, especially those with light skin and coat colors, to be born with or develop freckles on their noses, lips, and even eyelids. You might notice that, as your kitty or pup ages, brown or black spots might start appearing where the skin was once pink. Often, this is a normal process and is nothing of concern. However, to be on the safe side, always be sure to keep an eye on any spots on your furbaby's body, and monitor them for any abnormal changes. If any freckled area seems raised, sore, itchy, or in any way concerning, do consult a veterinarian. Also, always try to ensure that your furbaby, especially if of a lighter skin or coat color, is not spending too much time in the sun, as this can damage a furbaby's skin just like it can a human's. The skin is the largest organ of the body, so while freckles are most often nothing to fret over, diligence is still wise!


  1. Evan, you sure are a handsome boy. The pictures are just terrific. The drawing is also just terrific. Love Toby's little lips. Have a great day.

  2. You've definitely got a golden glow about you, Evan! We love your freckles. Bear started getting skin pigmentation on the inside of his back legs. All of a sudden, there was a ton of them and they seem to grow in number. I've shown them to the vet every time we're in and he says they are nothing ... but it's hard NOT to worry anyway. Bear is almost 11, so I guess I'll be doing more of that.

  3. That's a whole lot of handsomeness, Evan!

  4. I want to kiss that cute little nose Evan. My Sammy has a lot of freckles on his nose and toes. Very cute drawing of Toby, I could go for some strawberry shortcake. And that is a great tip, light colored kitties are prone to skin cancer so it is good to watch for anything unusual.

  5. I'm impurressed of your closeness, Evan :D Pawkisses for a Happy Day :) <3

  6. what beautiful close ups! both in subject and in technical skill :)
