Sometimes it's hard to look outside when there's so much going on behind you in the house. That means you have to tilt your ears back and listen to make sure you don't miss anything, all while keeping your eye on the wildlife outside, too. It's not always easy being a busy mancat.
Given that today is indeed Mancat Monday, our Doodle of the Day stars the other mancat of the house. For those who don't know or might not remember, this here human's sister currently lives with her, and so does her handsome mancat Toby. That being said, for Christmas I doodled a little something, well, special, for Toby's mom.
There is a story and a reason behind this strange little piece. First of all, my sister finds sloths quite intriguing. What's more, it's a running joke in our house that Toby is, more or less, much like a sloth. He is a very unique and chill cat, and you can do just about anything you want to him without a fuss. But, at the same time, he's also very slow, speaking in terms of mobility. Though young and able-bodied, Toby is one of the slowest walking creatures you will ever have the misfortune of getting stuck behind in a hallway. He is of course one cool, sweet, and funny mancat, but also, well, much like a sloth. So, that's in large part why I doodled this up for my sister for Christmas.
That being said, we're now moving on to the wonderfully inspiring Sparks blog hop, hosted by Annie of McGuffy's Reader.
Inspired by the aforementioned comments on Toby and his special and unique nature, this is the Sparks I chose for this week:
"Be you. The world will adjust."
As always, I found this sweet and simple sentiment on Pinterest. I think being unique and being true to yourself is the only way to go. After all, as the quote says, the world can adjust to fit you just the way you.
So, don't forget to be you! And have a magnificent Monday!
Our Tip of the Day:
Winter often means dryness in the air, as we're sure you all know. That being said, do your best to steer clear of or reduce baths for your furbaby this time of year. Too much bathing can dry out the skin and fur, which can be even more of a problem in the dryness of winter. In addition, if a bath is needed, schedule it accordingly. If your furbaby is due to go outside, whether it be for a bathroom break of a trip to the vet, do no bathe them immediately before this, as going out into cold weather with wet fur can cause discomfort as well as potential health concerns. Long story short, be aware of the health of your furbaby and their fur and coat, and only bathe them as needed, if at all, during the winter months.
