Almost Wordless Wednesday



***
Our Artsy Fartsy Endeavor of the Day:

A certain pup told me that it wasn't fair for the kitties to have all the fun. So, I doodled up a canine version of art we shared yesterday.
 

We've made this one into an ornament, because there's nothing more festive than a gangsta hanging from your Christmas tree.

Our Tip of the Day:
Our tips these days have been inspired by the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday. We have very recently discussed what kinds of vegetables and such in a Thanksgiving dinner can, if fed plain, make decent treats for you kitty or pup. Today, on the other hand, we'll mention some vegetables and other similar foods that it is simply best to avoid feeding your furbaby altogether. In addition to alliums such as onion and garlic, which we've already discussed being toxic on multiple occasions, it is wise to steer clear of feeding your cat or dog foods such as avocado, mushrooms, tomato, and rhubarb, among others. While some such foods are only dangerous in large quantities, or if certain parts of them are eaten, when in doubt, avoid them altogether. Also, of course, be aware if certain dishes being served contain such foods as added ingredients. If you are in any way unsure what a dish contains, simply do not feed any part of it as a treat to your kitty or pup. As always, it is better to be safe than sorry!

Such a good drawing of you Astrid as a gangster. That will look terrific on the tree. You all have a wonderful Wednesday.

Hi Astrid. You have such a look of longing on your sweet face. Love that cute ornament as well. Didn't know avocado is bad for the kitties. Not that Mom has ever given us any. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, angel Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth, Calista Jo and Cooper Murphy
