Flashback Springtime Selfie

We had some beautiful weather last week. There was sunshine, and warmth, and days where no semblance of a coat was necessary. For that reason, we intended on spending our Saturday yesterday with the windows open for some window whiffies. We were even going to snap some selfies in said open windows. But do you know what happened yesterday instead? It rained. And then it snowed. No window whiffies were to be had.

All of the above being said, we were determined to share a window whiffies selfie today. Our hearts were set on it. So, we're going for a flashback selfie. We're going back to a selfie snapped during some window whiffies enjoyed in days gone by.

There are actually three furbabies in that there window whiffies selfie. Can you see them all?

This flashback selfie from a true spring day is our contribution to the Sunday Selfies Blog Hop, hosted by the Kitties Blue of The Cat on My Head.

We're wishing you all warmth and window whiffies!

Our Doodle of the Day:

I scribbled up a spring-inspired doodle for today. It seems strange sharing it now, what with snow falling to the ground. But, here it is nonetheless.

Our Tip of the Day:

Today is the last day of National Pet Poison Prevention Month. Since Easter is just around the corner, we're going to give you a summary of what Easter items to keep away from your furbaby, so that they do not end up at the emergency clinic around this springtime holiday.

First, keep those Easter lilies away from your kitties and pups! There are a number of lily types that are toxic to furbabies, Easter lilies being one of the most dangerous. Any part of the Easter lily can be toxic, even the pollen. Lily toxicity can lead to any number of life-threatening side effects, one of them being acute kidney failure. As you surely already know or can guess, it is simply safest to keep any and all lilies out of the home, well out of reach of your kitty or pup.

Other Easter goodies to keep away from your furbaby include chocolate, which is also toxic, as you all certainly already know. Don't forget the danger that other candies can pose as well, such as the sugar-free sort containing toxic xylitol. If you are giving or receiving Easter baskets that contain candies such as these, keep them well hidden away, so that hungry or curious furbabies cannot help themselves to a toxic snack.

It is also worth it to noting the danger of Easter grass. This stringy grass-like material often used as a filler in Easter baskets can be dangerous if ingested by a kitty or pup. It can lead to emergencies such as intestinal blockage, perforation, or laceration. Try not to use any such materials in Easter baskets. If you receive a basket with this dangerous fake grass material, keep it well out of your furbaby's reach and dispose of it safely.

Oh no, to be so near and yet so far from the smell and taste of spring is horridly bad luck. . . . still it does give us a chance to see a lovely flashback selfie.
Purrs for ataste of summer in spring next week.

We looked and looked and finally saw that third furbaby. By the looks on your faces there must be something really interesting outside.

Mother Nature is such a tease! Yesterday was 60 degrees and the windows were open, today it was chilly blanket weather again (not that we're complaining!)

If the weatherguessers are on the money, then we'll have some nice weather very soon, even after ice and snow yesterday. Am ready to put my heaviest coats in the back of the closet again!
