Woof Woof Wednesday

Pup Astrid's photos for today might look like repeats. That's because she's yet again posing in the window. She's also still wearing her new Valentine's bow on her collar, which she showed off last week. These photos are truly not repeats, though. They're just déjà vu shots from a stick-in-the-mud sort of pup.



Astrid also wanted to share a flashback shot starring her Valentine's bow from last year. Does anyone remember this pretty floral bow of hers?


Happy Wednesday, friends!

Flashback Valentine's Doodle of the Day

My intention was to share only brand new Valentine's doodles this week. I'm going against that today, though, and sharing a flashback doodle. This is simply because work has been a bit crazy lately and so I didn't get today's doodle done in time to post it here. I looked back at past doodles for something suitable for Valentine's Day, and I found one from 2018. It was inspired by a certain little romantic animated movie.

Tip of the Day

We're continuing on with our tips for National Cat Health Month, today's tip being all about diet. As you all certainly know, not all foods are created equal. Always be sure to do your research and read labels, ensuring that you are feeding your kitty food that is as high-quality as possible. Also remember that cats are obligate carnivores, so make sure that their diet largely reflects this. In addition, when it comes to feeding your cat, it is of course important to take a number of other factors into consideration, such as their age and health status. For example, kittens do best on foods formulated for kittens, as these diets will include higher protein and fat content, which helps aid in their growth and development. As your cat ages, consider how their health will affect their dietary needs. For example, does your cat have kidney disease or diabetes? Cats with kidney disease should be on a diet lower in protein, in order to help their kidneys function as well as possible. On the other hand, cats with diabetes are often better regulated when on a diet higher in protein. Other factors that could affect diet include of course food allergies, dermatitis, arthritis, dental disease, and weight, just to name a few. The most important thing is to understand your cat's dietary needs based on their overall health status. Of course, as needed, discuss your kitty's dietary needs with their veterinarian, and make sure you understand what type of food would be best for them.

We do remember that flower on your collar from last year, Astrid. So pretty.

Astrid, I just ordered cat ear headband for myself, with the ears being bunches of flowers with butterflies! I've wanted cat ears for years, but always thought spending $ on such things was beyond frivolous. However, I found a sale, and must have the ears before 2/22, when I go to the CatVideo Fest!
