Don't mind the purple reflection on Astrid's nose. It's from the light in the terrarium this here human's sister keeps. Astrid happens to think she looks good in purple, so she doesn't mind one bit.
Happy Wednesday, friends!
Doodle of the Day
Did you know?Did you know that watermelon can make for a sweet, healthy snack for a furbaby, but that it also poses a couple of dangers? Let's begin by saying that the fruit itself, the actual pink portion of a watermelon, is in large part very healthy for our pups and kitties. Watermelon contains nutrients such as vitamin A and potassium. It is also over 90% water in content, meaning it can make for a very hydrating treat.
The above being said, there are two components of a watermelon that can pose risks, and those are the seeds and the skin, or the rind. The seeds can cause intestinal blockages, especially in small dogs and cats, whose intestinal tract are small and might not be able to easily pass seeds. When it comes to the skin of a watermelon, that part is largely indigestible for our furbabies, and so consuming it could cause issues such as gastrointestinal upset. So, while the tasty pink fruit of a watermelon can make for a tasty and healthy treat for a pup or kitty, do be sure to buy seedless watermelon, remove any rogue seeds, and keep the fruit's skin out of the mix.
