Pretty and Playful in Pink

The kitties here recently got a new toy. It's all pink and pretty, with a bright pink feather and everything. Tonks loves it. She loves it so much that she decided to stop in the middle of a play session with it to strike a pose.


We apologize for the dark lighting of this photo. There was simply no time to mess with the camera settings, lighting, and all that jazz. After all, this photo was snapped smack dab in the middle of a play session. See?




Tonks hopes everyone has a Sunday as fun as hers!

Flashback Doodle of the Day

Due to some technical difficulties, I have not managed to scan and upload a new doodle for today. I should be able to sort that all out today, but for now we'll resort to sharing a flashback doodle. Given that it's now February, we figured we'd share one of the very few Valentine's doodles we scribbled up last year. This flashback doodle was actually based on the fact that one of my parents' cats, Trapper, has a major crush on pup Astrid.

Tip of the Day

With February being Spay/Neuter Awareness Month, we are giving some tips on this significant topic over the next couple of days. Today, we have a few words on how a kitty or pup's health can benefit from being spayed or neutered. Just to give a couple of examples, spaying a female cat or dog can eliminate the risk of uterine cancer or infection, and can reduce the risk of mammary cancer. For male cats and dogs, neutering can eliminate the concern of testicular cancer and can reduce the risk of diseases of the prostate. Of course, pregnancy itself can be risky, so a spayed cat or dog is also free of unexpected pregnancy and the dangers that come with it. There are a great many other health benefits that can potentially result from having a cat or dog spayed or neutered. Due to their reduced risks of various diseases, spayed or neutered cats and dogs are sometimes more likely to live longer, healthier lives. So, for the above reasons and more, spay and neuter your pets! And, as we mentioned yesterday, also consider assisting with or donating to the neutering efforts of feral colonies, so that these furbabies can also live as healthy of lives as possible.
