Happy Mother's Day!

Our selfie for today was snapped by the mancat who first turned me into a cat mom.


Evan was indeed the first kitty whom I adopted on my very own, as an independent adult. Before him, I'd had animals that were shared or family pets. Evan, though, was the first kitty whom I rescued all on my own. Thank you for transforming me into a cat mom, Evan! It's the best job ever.

What's more, as we mentioned yesterday, we think being a mom can mean so many things. A mom is someone who nurtures. A mother can be just that to children of all types, shapes, and sizes. Whether she be the mother of two-legged or four-legged children, whether her children be human or furry, a mother should be celebrated for all that she does.

All of us here at Four-Legged Furballs want to wish every single mother out there a very happy and blessed Mother's Day!

Our Tip of the Day:
 
Not too long ago, we shared a series of tips all about pet safety in the season of spring. We were going to wait a while before we got into the details of summer safety. However, given the summer-like days we've been having, we thought we'd go ahead and offer some of these important tips now.

In many areas, summer can mean extreme heat. For this reason, it is important to know the signs of heat exhaustion or heat stroke in your cat or dog. Signs of overheating in our furbabies can include excessive panting, difficulty breathing, increased heart rate and respiration rate, excessive drooling, weakness, or even vomiting and diarrhea. If your furbaby begins to show any of these signs, especially if they have been in the heat, do not hesitate to seek veterinary assistance. Tomorrow, we'll start diving a little deeper into how to keep your kitties and pups safe from overheating and other summer concerns.
