Can you guess which furbaby around here stepped up to the plate? Or, well, stepped up to the camera? We won't make you wait and wonder. The answer is, Evan snapped a selfie for today!
I may or may not have stalked Evan with the camera while he enjoyed some window whiffies. Finally, though, he did agree to snap a selfie of his own accord. He hopes you all find his selfie stunning!
Wishing each and every one of you a stupendous Sunday!
Our Doodle of the Day:
Rosie was notorious for stealing any book, notebook, binder, or papers that you were using. I never once had to tell my teachers that my dog ate my homework, but I did have to explain to a teacher or two that my cat tore my homework while making a bed or a toy our of it. Once, Rosie even hurled all over my homework. Another time, Rosie had a sore on her paw, which I only realized after she walked all over my homework. That time, I had to explain to my teacher why there was blood all over my homework. These are memories are ones I will always cherish.
Our Tip of the Day:
Now, on to feeding these birds of whom we're starting to see more and more in these springtime days. First and foremost, despite popular belief, bread is not an ideal food to feed geese and ducks. Bread does not have much in the way of nutritional value for these wild birds, and often can do more harm than good. So, then, what should you feed animals such as geese? You can offer them some regular birdseed, keeping in mind that sunflower seeds are not one that is ideal for them. You can also give them grapes, kale, and Romain lettuce. That being said, make sure that these foods are bite size, or else there is the risk that the geese or ducks could choke. So, cut grapes in half, and chop up kale or lettuce that you offer. If you offer birdseed or other small foods, mound them up in small piles for ease of eating.
Also ensure that you take safety precautions, both for yourself and the wild birds. For example, it is typically best that you not feed the birds directly out of your hands. In addition, place the food you feed them in a safe area, such as away from roads. In general, you simply have to use common sense, and if you're not sure something is safe, simply don't do it. Interacting with wildlife can be an inspiring and unique experience, but it is always best to keep both their safety and your safety in mind.
