Mancat Monday

It's Mancat Monday! You know what that means? It means that, well, it's time for some mancats!

Who can spot the nip nanner in that picture up there?

Mancats Evan and Toby sure know how to find a cozy sun puddle. And these boys hope all of you friends of ours have some sun puddles of your own!

Oh, and we have randomly selected a winner for the magnet we posted a picture of on Friday. And the winners are the Trout Talkin Tabbies (Da Tabbies o Trout Towne)!

Happy Monday, everybuddy!

Our Doodle of the Day:


Our Tip of the Day:
Currently, our tips focus on looking for signs that would clue you in that your furbaby is ill or in pain. Today, we're talking about how a cat or dog's ears can offer such cues. Keep an eye on how your furbaby is holding their ears, especially compared to how they typically hold them. For example, does your furbaby usually hold their ears up high and perky, but now they're low and droopy? There is a chance that low or drooping ears could indicate that a cat or dog is in pain or not feeling well. It is worth noting here that the same goes for the tail, as a low and drooping tail on a cat or dog whose tail is usually raised and perky could be a cause for concern. Back to the ears, also of course keep an eye out for just one ear being held differently, or twitching or shaking of the ears, as these could all be signs of something such as an ear infection, or even a mass or other such issue. An odor from one or both ears, or visible debris in the ear, could also indicate concerns such as these. Any number of of your cat or dog's body parts could give an indication as to their health, so always do your best to be observant.

Congrats to the Trout Talkin Tabbies! Glad Evan is getting some sun, those are great photos. I love the drawing, as you know, I love Halloween too. I am trying to motivate to decorate this year though. Excellent tip.

Awright, Trout Talkin' Tabbies! SCORE!
We watch cat body language closely, especially the tail. Ears too, so this is a good tip!

I had a hard time spotting the nip nanner! Is it trying to escape out the door from your clutches?
