Mancat Monday

Our usual Mancat Monday star is my momma's boy Evan. Today, though, Evan said he was taking a break and refused to pose for the camera. But that's okay, because the other mancat around here, that being our housemate Toby, was happy to show off his handsome self today. These shots of Toby showcase how this here human's ability to photograph a black cat with proper lighting is subpar, but hopefully you can all still see just how handsome Toby is.




What do you think Toby is looking at there? Could he be hopeful that Santa Paws is already flying up there in his sleigh, ready to bring toys and goodies to good boys like Toby? Is that what all of you friends of ours are hoping these days, too?

Happy Monday, friends!

Our Tip of the Day:

A series of tips on Christmas tree safety simply would not be complete without a comment or two on tinsel. Long story short, please do not use tinsel if you have furbabies in your life. This stringy stuff can be quite tempting to kitties, for example, but can also be extremely dangerous. If consumed, it can cause problems such as gastrointestinal obstruction or laceration. Keeping that in mind, if your furbaby does swallow tinsel and you find some hanging from their mouth or even anus, do not pull on it, as this can cause even further internal damage. If you find yourself in a situation such as this, seek veterinary care as soon as possible. Again, though, to prevent such incidents, it is highly recommended that you simply do not use tinsel as part of your Christmas decorations.

Great photos. Black cats, or black anything, is hard to photograph. Toby has a very handsome profile.

Great tip on the tinsel too.
