Some Very Sunny Sunday Selfies

We are so very thankful for all the sunshine we've been having, even if it's been making the great outdoors frighteningly hot.

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 Doodle of the Day:

Today's foodie doodle was again inspired by Marg's suggestions that we create a cat and dog doodle. So, we went with this:

Our Tip of the Day:
Since we're all about foodie doodles these days, we thought we might go for some food tips as well. We've given these tips in the past, but we thought we'd repeat them again. After all, diet is a pretty significant aspect of our furbabies' lives.

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.

We always love seeing a sunny cat face and we loved seeing Evan's handsome face. We enjoyed the fun spaghetti doodle too. Please visit us this week, we put Rosie in our this year's memorial kitty slideshow.

Our Mommy is more likely to fall asleep in a sun puddle with us than remove us from one. We should remove her though she got badly burnt one time when she fell asleep in a sun puddle.

Evan, our mom and dad do that thing with the sunpuddles, too. Such spoilsports, though we know it's just so we don't overheat.

Great photos of Evan enjoying the sun. I am a party pooper too, Millie is white and always wants to be on the sunny enclosed porch so I make him come in too.
Very cute drawing, reminds me of Lady and the Tramp. Excellent tips too. I hope you are having a nice weekend.

Evan, we remove Angel, or lower the blind so the sun doesn't bake her! Especially the tip of her ears, which are white. Cute doodle, and now I want some spaghetti!

Katie Isabella said...

My mom lowers the blinds some so *I* don't get too hot and burned too, Evan. So happy to meet you today. Your gorgeous ginger face is bristling with whiskers.

The Island Cats said...

Evan, you're positively glowing in that sunpuddle!

Erin the Cat Princess said...

We loves your cartoon for this week.Perchance could you do one for Valentine and I?
evan sure is a lucky dude to enjoy the sunpuddles and I'm sure long term stay is not dangerous to health. Well thats my excuse and I'm sticking to it! MOL

I make Mudpie move sometimes too before she overheats. Those look like pawsome sun puddles!!!

Evan, Your Mom is just taking care of you! I wish I HAD some sun puddles to be removed from.
The angle our Townhouse is, we don't get too many.
