Woof Woof Wednesday

Can you guess where Astrid decided to pose for her Woof Woof Wednesday post?

This stick-in-the-mud pup chose yet another pouty pose in the window. Are your surprised? No? Neither are we. Pup Astrid is quite fond of gazing out the window and snooping on the neighbors, squirrels, and birds. We're guessing she's not the only furbaby out there who enjoys that.

Wishing you all a wonderful Wednesday!

Doodle of the Day

How about another home library sort of doodle? Don't worry, there's of course a kitty amongst the books in today's bookish doodle.

Tip of the Day

Cats and dogs in the wild get a lot of entertainment from nature, you could say. To help our indoor kitties and pups, we can give them a view of wildlife and the world outside their favorite windows in order to stimulate their minds and help them feel content. And so, today's tip is to consider placing bird feeders, birdbaths, and other such wildlife attractions in your yard, especially where they can be seen from your furbaby's favorite windows. That being said, it's of course important to place these features in parts of the yard where your kitty or pup cannot easily reach the wildlife or the wildlife's food, such as if they go outdoors. Other considerations to make are ensuring bird feeders and birdbaths do not cause your kitty or pup to punch out window screens, jump out windows, or run out doors after birds or squirrels, thereby putting themselves in danger of roads and other outdoor hazards. To prevent such dangers, close and secure windows and doors and consider the overall placement of yard features for wildlife in order to ensure your furbaby's safety. Though such precautions do need to be made, it is of course still perfectly possible to set up bird feeders and birdbaths in your yard. What's more, doing so is beneficial for stimulating your furbaby's natural instincts and keeping them mentally healthy and sound, but it's also beneficial to the wildlife, as finding food in the winter and water in the summer can make life easier for the wildlife living in our human world.

We've double locked all of the window screens that the cats can get to, but I won't put up bird feeders, since The PO'M is out there.

Great pose Astrid. Looks like you are dreaming of what might be beyond that window. You all have a fantastic day.

She's always ready for her close up if she's in her window.
