Those are some big toesies, aren't they? Our next toesies are much smaller, and belong to none other than Evan. See?
Do those look a little, well, different? Well, for those who don't know or might not remember, my boy Evan is hind limb paralyzed. He has little to no feeling in his back legs, which tend to twist at odd angles, and which have claws that do not retract. This is all the result of a coyote attack that happened when Evan was roughly 6 weeks of age, just days before I met him. Evan was the sole survivor of the attack that killed his momma cat and litter mates. He lost the use of his hind legs, but not his spirit!
And, on the topic of toesies, here is today's doodle of the day:
One my favorite quotes. And, we're sending lots of four-legged love to all of our furiends today!
Our Tip of the Day:Try to minimize giving baths to your pups, as well as kitties, in the winter. Cold, dry air can cause dry, itchy skin, and this can be exacerbated by baths. This is because bathing can remove some of the oils of the skin and coat, which of course means removing some of the moisture. Therefore, please try to give as few baths as possible to your pups or even kitties when the weather is cold and dry. If a bath is needed this time of the year, look into getting some safe moisturizing shampoo for your furbabies, such as ones sold at your vet's office. This can help keep your furbaby clean yet also moisturized and therefore far less dry, itchy, and uncomfortable.
