Mancat Monday

I want to begin today's post by sending our purrs, woofs, and prayers to Ellen of 15andmeowing. Her sweet KaTwo left for the Rainbow Bridge quite suddenly over the weekend.

KaTwo ~ Forever

Ellen has said goodbye to three kitties this year, and our hearts go out to her.


Today is Mancat Monday. Evan decided he needed a day off, so he recruited the only other mancat around to star in today's post. Who might we be talking about? Our handsome housemate Toby!

Toby knows he has some impressive whiskers, and he will show them off every chance he gets. The camera sure loves them, too, because it focused on those whiskers in every photo I took during this photo shoot.

Happy Monday!

Doodle of the Day

For today's Thanksgiving doodle, I wanted to express my gratitude for my angels, such as my Rosie and her brother Sammy.

Tip of the Day

Today's Pet Diabetes Awareness Month tip is to make sure you understand the factors that can affect blood glucose, especially if your furbaby has diabetes. For example, as you certainly know, food intake largely affects blood glucose levels. If your furbaby has a decreased appetite and is not eating, administering insulin can potentially lead to hypoglycemia. This is because an animal gets glucose from their food. If your furbaby is not eating and is therefore not taking in food as a source of glucose, then administering insulin, which lowers blood glucose, can lead to even lower levels of glucose. So, be sure to discuss all such factors with your veterinarian, and be sure to hold off on administering insulin if your furbaby is not eating so that hypoglycemia does not result. At the same time, also be aware of other factors that could potentially affect a diabetic cat or dog's blood glucose levels, such as vomiting and diarrhea, or even dental or other issues. Again, discuss any such concerns with your veterinarian as needed.

OH! I didn't know about KaTwo...I'll go over there immediately!
Toby has some very fine vibrissae!

Our hearts are breaking for Miss Ellen. She's suffered way too much loss this year.

Lovely whiskerage Mr. Toby! We are very sad for Miss Ellen and Mr. David losing their third kitty this year. We know KaTwo now has her beautiful wings and will visit them always and forever along with all the other sweet kitties they have lovingly cared for over the years.

Hugs, Pam and Teddy too
