Puppy Paws on Wordless Wednesday

Our Tip of the Day:

This time of year, we often enjoy having our homes smell festive. Yesterday we mentioned how using candles to scent your home can pose obvious risks to our furbabies, and today we're here to discuss how using potpourri or essential oils to fragrance your home can also be dangerous to your furbaby. If you use liquid potpourri or essential oils to make your home smell like Christmas, or if you use them year round, be extremely cautious using them around your furbaby. Both ingestion and skin contact with some of these scented items can be extremely dangerous and toxic to your kitty or pup, causing anything from skin irritation to symptoms such as vomiting, difficulty breathing, and weakness. Just some of the essential oils and other similar products that can cause illness are those derived from cinnamon, pine, peppermint, and citrus. Therefore, if you holiday season includes using oils or potpourri to make your home smell festive, be extremely careful to keep all such products safely out of your furbaby's reach.

Those are some fine looking paws, Astrid. A lot bigger than ours.

Another photo that IS NOT Astrid staring out the window...YAY!
LOL!
The Hubby cannot abide most perfumes or scents; lucky for me, he's okay with my Chanel No. 5. His years of working around melting plastic probably burned his smell receptors or whatever.
Cute doodle; I would go on a sleigh ride in the snow and cold, just because I haven't been on one yet. Otherwise, Winter is my least favorite time of year...brrrr!

Very pretty paws, and that pup and kittty look like they are having a great time in the sled.

Cute toesies Astrid. And nice drawing too. As always, excellent tips. I avoid all oils even the ones that are supposed to be safe.

We love your toesies, Astrid. :)

Good tip about candles and oils. You have to be SO careful with those things, especially with furbabies around.
