So, long story short, we love Halloween, and now we have finally (finally!) completed a doodle that will very soon serve as the Halloween header for this little blog of ours.
For all we know, our header will change multiple times before Halloween, since creating Halloween doodles is one of this here human's favorites. Anyway, we're sharing this haunted doodle today as part of Athena's Caturday Art blog hop. Do be sure to visit her to see the art of all of our friends!
Our Tip of the Day:Yesterday we talked about how it is just as important to watch for behavioral symptoms as it is to keep an eye on physical symptoms in our furbabies. Yesterday's example of this was aggression, such as if a previously friendly furbaby begins to show uncharacteristic hissing or growling. In addition to that, today we want to remind you that even your kitty or pup's vocalizations can be indicative of potential health concerns. For example, has your cat or dog become more talkative than usual? Or perhaps less talkative? A cat or dog in pain might become less talkative as well as less active altogether. On the other hand, sometimes cats and dogs suffering from cognitive dysfunction will begin to meow or bark more, including at strange times, such as in the middle of the night. Also listen for changes in the sound of your furbaby's voice. For example, those with something such as an obstructed airway or even congestive heart failure might begin sounding different, such as with a higher pitch to their meows or barks, or perhaps even quieter or muted. You know your furbaby best, and therefore you know their normal vocalizations. If you think your furbaby's vocalization has changed in an alarming way, do be sure to consult a veterinarian.
