See? Isn't Toby the ultimate Mr. Cool. The problem, though, is that being Mr. Cool is quite tiring.
It's so tiring, that sometimes Mr. Cool falls asleep on the job, right in the middle of a photo shoot. Being awesome is exhausting, after all.
Mr. Cool and all of us here wish you a magnificent Monday! Make sure you get in those naps!
Our Doodle of the Day:
In case you were wondering about the setting of my doodle, the character of Ron had more than one unfortunate run-in with a tree throughout the series of books. Scabbers didn't have a whole lot of luck when it came to trees, either, for that matter. Hence the tree.
Our Tip of the Day:
In addition, spaying or neutering your furbaby before they go through their first estrus or pregnancy will give them the best chance of remaining free from related health issues later in life, such as mammary cancer. Spaying or neutering before their first cycle can also help to potentially reduce the display of certain behaviors, such as spraying. Though certain such health or behavioral issues can still arise even if a furbaby is spayed or neutered, having this surgery performed before their first cycle can reduce the risk.
So, then, when should you have your cat or dog spayed or neutered? The short answer is to discuss this with your veterinarian. Ultimately, it depends on the individual animal's overall health and development. For typical, healthy kittens and puppies, the AVMA has endorsed spaying and neutering as early as two month of age, and/or when the kitten or puppy has reached two pounds. Many shelters and rescues follow this practice. Some veterinarians will prefer to wait a little longer, such as when the kitten or puppy has reached three, four, or even five months of age. Essentially, a veterinarian will best be able to determine when is the best time for your furbaby to be safely and effectively spayed or neutered, so of course discuss this with a professional.
