Toesies Tuesday

Guess who gets to have back-to-back posts yet again?

Evan! That's right, my hind limb paralyzed boy is showing off his, well, paralyzed toes.

More often than not, whether Evan is sitting or lying down, one back foot faces down and the other faces up. Most commonly, it is exactly as seen above, with his right foot being the one faced down and his left foot faced up. This is probably because Evan has always seemed most comfortable and likely to sit with his hind legs positioned out to his right side. We just thought we'd share that little tidbit with you.

Happy Tuesday, friends!

Our Doodle of the Day:

Our Tip of the Day:

Do you know what holiday food we haven't yet mentioned in this Thanksgiving series? Cranberries! This here human loves cranberries, but are they safe for our kitties and pups? In moderation, plain cranberries can be given as a small treat to a dog or cat who enjoys them. That being said, it is best to steer clear of cranberry sauces and juices, as those contain excess amounts of sugar and other potential additives that might not be the best for your furbaby. Also be careful with special cranberry dishes, in case they contain not only excess sugar but potentially also toxic ingredients such as alcohol. As always, when in doubt, simply don't offer it to your furbaby.

Since we're on the topic of fruits, we'll go ahead and run through a couple of other fruity treat options for your kitty or pup. If fed in moderation, berries such as blueberries and strawberries are healthy for cats and dogs, as are bananas. Apples are also generally a healthy treat option, but only if you are careful to refrain from feeding your furbaby the seeds. That being said, keep in mind that when fruits like apples are made into pies, added ingredients such as sugar are not so healthy for your furbaby. Of course, also remember that fruits like grapes and raisins are toxic to cats and dogs, so never feed those. Even cherries can be dangerous, especially if consumed in large quantities, as cyanide poisoning can result due to the contents of the stem, pit, and even leaves. So, to be safe, don't feed your furbaby cherries, cherry pie, and most certainly not chocolate covered cherries this holiday season. Ultimately, if you are not certain that a particular fruit or other food is safe for your furbaby, simply don't feed it as a treat.

Evan is my hero.....I love that he has NO IDEA he's different in any way from his siblings...he just lives his life and loves it. It's the way life was meant to be.

Hugs to him and everyone else too!
