Foggy is one of my parents' 12 cats. He is a big boy, and he's as sweet as sugar. When I visit my parents' house, Foggy more often than not greets me and bids me farewell in the front window.
I apologize for the glare in the window in these photos. It was obviously quite sunny when I snapped these shots. That certainly made for a beautiful day, but it also posed quite a challenge when it came to photographing handsome Foggy through a glass window. But, we thought you all would still enjoy seeing this handsome ginger boy. So, here you go.
Foggy and all of us here wish you a happy Monday!
Flashback Doodle of the Day
As I mentioned yesterday, the next couple of days will all be flashback doodles. The majority of these flashbacks are in one particular series of wintry doodles I scribbled up last year. These flashback doodles were inspired by my angel Rosie, my sweet calico kitty who kept me company from the time I was 4 until I was 26 years old.
Tip of the Day
Today's winter tip is one that is probably rather logical, and that you all very likely already know. This tip is to refrain from shaving your kitty or pup in the winter, especially a shave close to the skin. The truth is, it is always best to refrain from cutting your furbaby's fur to the skin. In the winter, one reason their fur is crucial is because it helps insulate heat. Similarly, though, a cat or dog's fur can insulate cool air when it's hot outside, making it equally important in the summer. Of course, in the case of severe mats, thick fur that causes overheating in the summer, or other extenuating circumstances, a shave might be required or beneficial. That being said, though, it is best and safest for your furbaby to never shave their fur down to the skin. That fur serves far more purposes than one, including insulating both warm and cool air, depending on the time of the year.
