Mancat Monday Mishaps

Mancat Evan is often so very photogenic.

Sometimes, though, even a handsome mancat is not camera-ready.

On the other hand paw, sometimes Evan is ready for that purrfect closeup shot.

Other times, though, that closeup just isn't meant to be.

Yikes. Evan sure hopes he didn't scare you with that slightly nightmarish shot.

Happy Monday, friends!

Our Doodle of the Day:

Today, we have the last doodle in our current series inspired by the Harry Potter books, which I have enjoyed since my childhood. For this one, unlike the first of these doodles, I didn't need to create a cat for this book series that, in my opinion, stars far too few cats. Instead, for this doodle, I was inspired by a cat who actually does regularly appear in the books. This cat is named Mrs. Norris, and she is the cat of the caretaker of the magical school of a castle known as Hogwarts. Mrs. Norris herself is quite the fantastic hall monitor, and she often proficiently catches students like Harry Potter when they are where they should not be.

Our Tip of the Day:

Today's National Cat Health Month tip is one we already gave recently, but that we'll repeat yet again because it can be very important for your kitty's health. And this tip is to keep up with those preventatives. Typically recommended for monthly administration, different forms of prevention can, of course, prevent a variety of health concerns. For example, flea prevention can help keep your kitty free from flea infestations, flea bites and related dermatitis, bloodborne diseases that can be contracted from fleas, and other issues that arise from a kitty having fleas. Especially depending on your cat's lifestyle, such as if they go outdoors, administering prevention for parasites such as tapeworms and roundworms can also be significant. If infested, various intestinal worms can lead to issues such as diarrhea and weight loss, among others. Also don't forget the concern of heartworms, which can stem from mosquitoes. Heartworms can be a very dangerous parasite that can affect the heart and lungs, so preventing this is of course something significant to consider. Prevention is something to always consider for keeping your kitty happy and healthy. That being said, do always still discuss this with your veterinarian, who can help you determine your kitty's risk for certain parasites, and which preventatives might be best or safest for your kitty.

Evan, you have a fantastic nose!
And, I haven't read a single Harry Potter book, and only watched the first movie but didn't pay any attention to it! What can I say?!?

Not every photo shoot can be 100% great takes.

Mrs. Norris was a busybody in a good way, even though the students didn’t think so.

Happy Mancat Monday, Evan. We hope you had a great weekend. We know sometimes you aren't ready for the camera right away if it's too early. The closeup of the nose is always adorable. You have the cutest nose. Thanks for the share. Have a great day.

Even even a photo of your epic fangs doesn't scare me off - we gingers are fierce and it doesn't hurt to remind everyone of that!

Hugs, Teddy
