The camera decided that instead of focusing on Astrid's eyes or any other cute feature on her face, it wanted to focus on the droplets coming out of each of her nostrils. Classy, huh?
Doodle of the Day
Monday's doodle in my log cabin series had us in a cozy sort of bedroom, of course with our tuxie cat tour guide. Today, our furry tour guide has taken us to a different bedroom, this being a somewhat weird one in the attic. Can you tell what sort of interests this room's inhabitant has?
In general, attics sort of freak me out. My house has one of those dark and creepy attics that you can't fully stand up in, and I honestly avoid it like the plague. But, I'm actually fond of the imagery of attics that are able to be turned into fully functioning and furnished rooms. They just seem so quaint and even potentially cozy, and so I decided to add a perhaps quirky attic bedroom in the log cabin I'm doodling up.
Tip of the Day
Today's tip is to not immediately panic if you see a wet nose or dry nose on your furbaby. A healthy cat or dog can vacillate between a wet nose and a dry nose throughout one single day. A variety of things can affect whether a cat or dog's nose is wet or dry. For example, a wet nose like Astrid's in the above photo could be caused by allergies. Astrid indeed has seasonal allergies, for which she is medicated. Regardless of her allergy medication, though, Astrid still regularly has a dripping nose. Other factors that can affect the moisture content of a furbaby's nose include but are certainly not limited to the weather outside, the quality and temperature of the air inside the home, and whether the kitty or pup in question recently got a drink or even if they recently groomed. This all being said, you know your furbaby best, and if they are displaying abnormal discharge from their nose or abnormal nose dryness that concerns you, certainly contact a veterinarian.
