Around here, Evan is the king of sun puddles. They are easily his favorite part of summer.
Evan thinks this mom of his can be a real party pooper, though. You see, she doesn't want him to overheat or get a sunburn, so she sometimes removes him from sun puddles if he's been basking in them for too long. Isn't that terrible? Evan hopes none of his furry friends have such horrible parents as he does.
Well, anyway, Evan's sunny selfies up there are his contribution to the Sunday Selfies blog hop, of course hosted by the Kitties Blue over at The Cat on My Head.
Have a stupendous Sunday, friends!

Our Tip of the Day:
Over the next couple of days, we'll give some tips specifically regarding pet food ingredients. As you all surely know, the ingredients that go into a furbaby's food and therefore into their body all play an important role. Let's start today with protein, which is of course a significant part of any diet. Just as with us, our cats and dogs need protein, which can be broken down into amino acids, which can in turn be used to build up new muscles and other tissues. This is why high protein is especially important in a kitten or puppy's diet, as it ensures that they can form the tissues they need to grow into healthy adults.
There are also some other special considerations to make when it comes to protein. For example, furbabies suffering from pancreatitis or diabetes often benefit from high protein diets. On the other hand, a cat with renal disease requires a low protein diet for the health of their kidneys. So, while protein is indeed an important part of any diet, do be sure to do your homework and certainly discuss with your veterinarian what ingredients you should consider for your furbaby's diet in order to keep them healthy.
