Guest Selfies Galore

Do you all remember this selfie sneak peek that we shared with you all last week?

As we mentioned last week, this selfie is that of a sloth my sister met recently while she was on vacation. The sloth you see here is named Slow, and she lives at Zoo World in Panama City Beach, FL. Slow is quite the selfie pro.

The apple doesn't far from the tree, either.

Also a proficient at posing for selfie's is Slow's daughter, Chica.

Chica's father, a sloth named none other than Molasses, or Mo for short, is also not opposed to posing for a selfie or two.

Woops. Perhaps Mo there wasn't quite ready for that one to be snapped?

Luckily, he tried again, and even posed with a snack.

This family of sloths, that being Slow, Mo, and their daughter Chica, were some of the many animals who hunkered down with their handlers and rode out Hurricane Michael. Luckily, all of the animals and humans of Zoo World were unharmed in the hurricane.

My sister of course visited more than just the sloth family while at Zoo World. Though they were not all that open to snapping true selfies, she met Lynne and Valentina, mother and daughter giraffes.

My sister also met quite an escape artist of a baby pygmy goat.

Apparently, this little goat is so tiny that she is capable of squeezing out of her stall at night and thereby gets to roam free in the barn. I guess that means she has no curfew. What a rebel.

Though not all of them were open to posing for the camera, my sister made a lot of furry, and not-so-furry, friends that day. She met lemurs, a black bear, an ostrich, alligators, and so many more. Outside of Zoo World, she even met some dolphins. I myself am a huge fan of dolphins, so that sounds like a dream to me. Photos were not allowed at the dolphin meet-and-greet, though, so we don't have any dolphin selfies to share today.

We do hope you enjoyed getting to know sloths Slow, Mo, and Chica, and some of the other animals my sister met while in Florida. Of course, their selfies, and some not-so-selfies, are our entry for the Sunday Selfies blog hop, hosted by the Kitties Blue over at The Cat on My Head.

Have a very slothful Sunday, friends!

Our Festive Doodle of the Day:

Our Tip of the Day:

We're still in the midst of our National Pet Diabetes Awareness Month tips. On this topic, yesterday we discussed observing your furbaby and knowing visible signs of illness. In addition to this, if your furbaby has been diagnosed with diabetes, consider monitoring their blood glucose at home. This is of course not always an option, depending on the furbaby and the situation. But, if it is possible, do discuss this with your veterinarian. Your veterinarian can help you learn how to safely check your kitty or pup’s glucose at home, which can be done simply using a vein in your kitty or pup's ear and the same type of glucometer a human would use. If nothing else, of course it is advisable to take a diabetic furbaby to the vet for regular glucose and/or fructosamine checks, as well as frequent urinalyses, especially in the early stages of their diabetes treatment.

Oh wow, that family of sloth is awesome, and so good at the selfies too! We would love to meet one in person, as I understand that they are very special and kind creatures, albeit now an endangered species– unlike the mice around the palace!
