Mancat Monday

Evan wanted to star in our Mancat Monday post. After all, he is a handsome mancat. So, he found himself a nice sun puddle, struck a pose, and then, well, got photobombed.

The other mancat around here, housemate Toby, simply couldn't let himself be left out. So, he wiggled himself in behind Evan and joined in on this Mancat Monday shot.

Are there any other professional photobombers out there? Or victims of photobombing?

We're wishing all of you a happy Monday!

Oh, but before we go, mancats Evan and Toby wanted to ask all of you friends of ours if you could perhaps continue sending pup Astrid purrs, barks, and prayers. Tomorrow she will be undergoing surgery for the removal of the growth on her paw pad. We anticipate an uneventful, successful surgery, but positive thoughts can work wonders.

Our Artsy Fartsy Endeavor of the Day:

Here's another experimental doodle that will soon become a pin.

Our Tip of the Day:
This week we're going to offer a couple of tips on pet food ingredients. As you all surely know, the ingredients that go into our furbaby's food and therefore into their body all play an important role. For example, protein is a significant part of any diet. Just as with us, our cats and dogs need protein, which can be broken down into amino acids, which can in turn be used to build up new muscles and other tissues. This is why high protein is especially important in a kitten or puppy's diet, as it ensures that they can form the tissues they need to grow into healthy adults. There are also some other special considerations to make when it comes to protein. For example, furbabies suffering from pancreatitis or diabetes often benefit from high protein diets. On the other hand, a cat with renal disease requires a low protein diet for the health of their kidneys. So, while protein is indeed an important part of any diet, do be sure to do your homework and discuss with your veterinarian what ingredients you should look for in your furbaby's diet in order to keep them healthy.
