Friday Fun

Hi, friends! It's me Eddy hijacking the blog today. Isn't that cool? Being the boss is all shades of fun.

Can you believe that I let the mom around here snap some photos of me the other day? I couldn't help but let her. The window was open, window whiffies were happening, and I couldn't be bothered to fight off that flashy box.

My mom says that since I'm apparently not often cooperative during photo shoots, she's going to make me wait to share the rest of the photos from this window session slowly over the next few weeks. According to her, she never knows when I might cooperate for more photos again. Whatever, Mom. I do what I want.

Moving on, though, guess what? Now I get to have a little fun thanks to our friend Stunning CK! CK shared this activity on her blog, in which you choose an artist or band and then answer some questions about yourself using only their song titles. Apparently, my mom sometimes enjoys this thing called classic rock, especially these people known as Queen. So, I decided to be the best kitty ever and choose them, just for my mom. Here it goes!

Artist/Band: Queen
What is your gender: Cool Cat
How do you feel: The Show Must Go On
If you could go anywhere: Leaving Home Ain't Easy
Favorite mode of transportation: Flash
Your best friend: Good Old-Fashioned Lover Boy (aka, Evan!)
Favorite time of day: It's Late
If your life was a TV show: Let Me Entertain You
Relationship status: Too Much Love Will Kill You
Your fear: Death on Two Legs

So, how did I do? I sure had fun with that!

Happy Friday, friends!

Our Doodle of the Day:

We're still all in the mood for bookish doodles. We hope you're not getting bored of them. And today, apparently, we were also feeling a bit, well, girly.

Our Tip of the Day:

Whether you feed the wildlife in the warm months as well as the cold months, be sure to take your furbaby into consideration when placing feeders and food. We often of course want our kitties and pups to be able to see their Bird TV and Squirrel TV, but that at the same time, too close of proximity can cause problems. This is especially the case for our furbabies who go outdoors. If feeders are placed where outdoor dogs and cats can easily access them, the wildlife can of course be scared off or preyed upon. What's more, there's the chance that the outdoor pups and kitties themselves can be negatively affected by close proximity to the wildlife and their feeders

First, birdseed can pose some dangers to dogs and even cats. If consumed, there is a chance that a dog or cat can become blocked by consuming too much food intended for the wildlife. In addition, it could be possible for birdseed to ferment inside a dog or cat's stomach, and thereby cause bloat, which can be a very serious condition. Another concern is if birdseed molds, which can then have toxic effects if ingested by a pup or kitty.

Second, the wildlife themselves can pose risks to our furbabies, just as they can pose risks to the wildlife. For example, the feces of some wildlife might contain parasites that could infect our kitties or pups if ingested. Parasites and other issues can also arise if certain critters themselves are caught and consumed. Some wildlife also carry transmittable diseases, which in some cases might affect our furbabies, or which our furbabies can pass to us from wildlife with which they come into contact.

So, the long and the short of it is to always be aware of where place feeders and food for the wildlife. Many of us do enjoy feeding those outdoors critters, but we also must keep our own furbabies safe. Of course, the wildlife wouldn't mind a bit of safety from curious pups and kitties as well.
