Of Mancats and Motivation

As the title of this post suggests, we have two goodies to share with you all today. First up, we of course have some mancats for you to ogle.

Our mancat Evan sure does love his front door. After all, from that door he can watch over his domain.

Evan isn't the only mancat who enjoys gazing out at the world. Our housemate Toby does, too!

Though we do enjoy the beauty of winter, some days we truly are ready for spring to come and stay. The kitties are especially ready, because they don't appreciate their few and far between window and door sessions.

Have any of our friends been enjoying some lovely weather these days? Any window whiffies going on yet? We sure hope so!


Now it's time for the inspiring Sparks blog hop, hosted by Annie of McGuffy's Reader.

Annie created this blog hop as a means for us to share positive thoughts in this often negative world. I'm all about spreading any bit of postivity that I can, so I am so happy that Annie hosts this hop each week.

For this week, I found myself eager to meld another Olympic-inspired doodle with a positive thought. I did my best, and ended up with this:

When you think of it, we all start at the bottom. But, that doesn't mean greatness is not possible. Go for it!

Wishing you all a magnificent, marvelous Monday!

Our Tip of the Day:
Our cat health tip for toady is plain and simple. We're here to remind you to make sure that your cat has easy access to fresh water at all times. Water intake is of course crucial to a kitty's health, as it is important for proper functioning of not only organs such as the kidneys, but all systems of the body. So, make sure that your cat has water readily available. Some considerations to make include ensuring that your kitty has water accessible in areas where they are comfortable drinking, such as somewhere that is not too heavy with foot traffic, yet also somewhere that they frequent often. You can of course also offer water bowls in multiple areas of the house, something that is especially important in multi-cat households.

Also make sure that your kitty's water is in a bowl or other drinking vessel that they like. Some cats prefer typical bowls, some cats only want bowls with especially low sides, and some cats might even show a preference for drinking water out of cups or another container with high sides. Also, of course, freshen up that water as often as possible or as needed. Cats can be picky creatures, and some cats might refuse to drink water that is not fresh. In addition, fresh water is also simply healthier overall. To help ensure that water remains as fresh as possible, you could use a water fountain for your kitty. All in all, especially given how important it is for all bodily functions, make sure to give special attention to your kitty's water bowl.

Mudpie had a few minutes of door time today, and she's definitely feeling some spring fever! She might get her chance, because it's going to be near 60 tomorrow!
