Now, today being Tuesday, we also have some toesies to show off. These toesies belong to our housemate Toby.
Don't you just love how his little white toes are shaped like little hearts?
It's as if that there necklace was made just for Toby. Or, more like it was made just for his heart toesies.
Toby wants to know if any of our furiends have any shapes to share? Any other heart toesies out there? Maybe some fur patched into fun shapes?
We hope everybuddy has a beautiful day!
Our Tip of the Day:We have given a similar tip at least once or twice in the past, but we're going to repeat ourselves again today. Before considering declawing your cat, please do your research on this controversial surgery. When a cat is declawed, it is not just the claw itself that is removed, but part of the digit itself. In fact, did you know that declawing is more or less equivalent to a human having their finger cut back to the first knuckle? This will affect how the kitty ambulates, as they will have to learn to walk on truncated toes. For this reason, many declawed cats end up with early onset and/or severe arthritis. Some declawed cats have also been found to have an aversion to using litter, which could perhaps be due to pain or other uncomfortable sensations due to the removal of the tip of their toes. Before moving forward with declawing a kitty, please do consider that cats are affected in these ways, among others. Please try to find alternatives to declawing, such as learning to trim your cat's claws at home, or taking them in to the vet or to a groomer to have this done regularly. Another easy solution is to provide plenty of scratching posts or other similar items throughout the house, and directing any unwanted scratching behaviors to these allowed areas. There are even claw caps available on the market, which can be placed over the cat's claws and which stay in place for a couple to a few weeks. Declawing is a controversial topic for a reason, so please do all that you can to avoid putting your kitty through the loss of part of their toes.
