Prepare yourself for a few more days of Christmas doodles, because I won't be able to bring myself to stop until the Twelve Days of Christmas are over.
Merry Fifth Day of Christmas!
P.S. Stop by tomorrow to see the wonderful goodies we opened up from our Secret Santa Paws on Christmas morning!
Our Tip of the Day:
To begin, you can simply check on the status of moist food as often as possible, and warm or replace food that has become frozen. What's more, a source of heat will obviously help keep moist food from freezing at a fast rate, although you of course have to ensure that this source of heat is safe. This could mean doing something as simple as warming the bowl in which you put the moist food, or warming the moist food itself, to a safe temperature. There are also both electric and non-electric heat sources that can work for keeping bowls and their contents warm. For example, there are microwavable, or otherwise warmable, heating pads that can be placed under bowls to help prevent the rapid freezing of moist food that is fed to outdoor cats in the winter. There are also electric heated bowls that could keep moist food warm enough to prevent freezing. Other options of course include using a more extensive heat source within an entire feeding station or shelter, details which we will further discuss in upcoming tips. One important detail, though, as we mentioned just a few moments ago, is ensure that any heat source you use is safe and that it will not cause burns or fires. Always do your research before using any item that entails electricity and heating, and choose and use accordingly and wisely.
The last note to make here is that you should still of course make sure that moist food is not spoiling, such as if it manages to get too warm or sits out for too long. If a heated bowl or heat pad causes moist food to remain warm for long periods of time, do be sure to remove any uneaten food prior to spoilage. It might be cold outside during the winter months, but depending on the methods you use and the duration of time that outdoor cats' moist food is sitting out, it is always best to be aware of the potential for gastrointestinal or other issues that could result from the consumption of spoiled food.
We really like the Christmas doodles. They are so much fun. You all have a great day.
I hope you all had a lovely Christmas. I couldn't come by on the day because we went away for a few days and the internet at the hotel was almost non existent.
Your lovely card arrived today, thank you.
The more Christmas the better!
It’s great that you celebrate the whole season, i do, too, by listening to the music.
Very cute drawing. I am glad you extend the season, we do too. I am so sad that the radio stopped playing Christmas songs already. Excellent tips too.
Nothing wrong with crhistmas doodles. We just don't like those who take down their trees, decorations, etc on the 26th.
What a fun doodle! And we love that Christmas is still going on! :)
We always love your doodles!

Oh I say KEEP THE DOODLES comin' !! They've added to the festivities and made Christmas happier indeed for YOU and for US too!!
Cute doodles ! Purrs
We've tried heating pads, bricks heated in the oven, and heated bowls, but when it's really cold, it's a losing battle. Luckily, so far in Michigan, the temps have been hovering near enough to the melting point, that The 'O' Cats still get wet food. No doubt, that will change soon, and I have a fresh bag of kibble for them!
