Sunday Selfies

Our Sunday Selfies blog hop hosts, the Kitties Blue of The Cat on My Head, are today honoring sweet Phoebe of 15andmeowing, who gained her wings this past Monday.



Evan also wanted to honor Phoebe, and so he snapped some bright and shiny shots in memory of our angel friend.



The Rainbow Bridge has welcomed many new angels lately. We are sending our purrs and prayers to all those who have had to say goodbye to loved ones.

We want to wish all our friends a happy October!

Our Doodle of the Day:




Our Tip of the Day:
To continue with our theme of how to recognize signs or symptoms of disease, today we're talking about the eyes. The eyes can offer many signs in an ailing cat or dog. Check for abnormal dilation of the pupil in one or both eyes, as this could point to anything from neurological disorders to pain. Another sign of pain or other ailment is the third eyelids, which will sometimes become and stay visible in an ailing animal. Also check for characteristics such as dull eyes, a glassy-eyed expression, squinted eyes, or eyes that are sunken in. There are also issues such as nystagmus, which is when the eyes move rapidly from side to side, which could indicate a variety of neurological disorders. Of course also always keep an eye out for discharge from the eyes, such as yellow or green discharge, which can point to something such as a corneal abrasion, ocular infection, or upper respiratory infection. We'll go ahead and lump the nose in here as well, as a similar discharge from the nose can obviously point to problems arising in your furbaby's body as well. Sickness can manifest in many ways in our furbabies, so don't forget to keep an eye out for symptoms such as these.

You did a wonderful job of honoring Phiebe's memory this morning, Evan. And Mom's tip is a really good one. The eyes tell so much about how our furbabies are doing. Love the new header! :)

Thank you Evan, you are such a handsome boy and so sweet to honor Phoebe. Very cute drawing. And, as always, excellent tips. Phoebe's third eyelid was showing for the last week of her life.
