Woof Woof Wednesday

Sometimes, you're just chilling on a park bench, when something in the distance catches your attention.

Should you be alarmed? Is it safe to remain on the cozy bench?

Uh-oh. The sound you heard was a dog barking. What should you do? Skedaddle!

That's right. Pup Astrid thinks cats are cool, but that other dogs are just downright scary. Don't all of you kitty friends of ours out there agree?

Happy Wednesday, friends!

Our Halloween Doodle of the Day:

Our Tip of the Day:

We're on the 10th day of our 31 days of Halloween tips. Now, we simply couldn't go this entire Halloween month without mentioning none other than pumpkins! As most of you likely already know, pumpkin can make for a healthy treat for a kitty or pup. Plain, cooked pumpkin can be an excellent source of fiber. This can help to keep the bowels regular, and so could be something to keep in mind for those furbabies with irregular bowel movements. Pumpkin and the fiber it provides can also help move hairballs more easily through those kitty intestinal tracts. Fiber, such as that from pumpkin, can also help a kitty or pup feel full for longer, which means that it can also potentially aid in weight loss. All of these benefits are also on top of the fact that pumpkin is also high in a variety of beneficial nutrients, such as vitamin A and vitamin C.

That all being said, do of course ensure that you only feed your furbaby cooked pumpkin of the plain variety. You can feed your furbaby pumpkin puree from a can, of course ensuring that it contains no spices or other added ingredients. You can also cook up your own pumpkin and feed it to your kitty or pup as a treat. What's more, these days, there are many types of dry and moist foods, as well as treats, that contain pumpkin as an ingredient. These such foods might assist certain furbabies with bowel regularity or weight loss. Of course, if you have any questions or concerns regarding your furbaby's diet and digestion, discuss options such as pumpkin with your veterinarian.

Oh Astrid! We hope those dogs didn't scare you too much.

Astrid, you have the same reaction as our Angel, only in reverse! She rather likes dogs, but other cats make her mad!

Sweet Astrid - you stay away from those scary dogs.

You're a smart pup, Astrid!

If you ever visited here, i think you would find three dogs that would love to get to know you, and cats that would tell you to stay away!

You're so smart, Astrid. We'd get the heck out of Dodge, too, if we heard barking!
