A Tonks, Toesies, and Tongue Outtakes Tuesday

The title of today's post is a mouthful, but it's the title for a reason. Why? Because today you get Tonks, her toesies, and her tongue. Oh, and you get all these in the form of outtakes.




My Google Drive even took my stored photos from this session to create an animation. See?


Tonks hopes you enjoyed seeing her, her toesies, and her tongue today! She sure enjoyed sharing them.

Happy Tuesday to all!

Flashback Doodle of the Day

Today I'm sharing yet another flashback doodle. I've mentioned over the past few days that I'm giving my wrist and hand a bit of a rest since I recently developed carpal/cubital tunnel syndrome, but rest assured that I'm still slowly but surely working on new doodles. I'll get some of those finished up and start sharing them in the next week or two, depending on how well my hand cooperates. For today, though, does anyone remember these sunbathing kitties from last year?

Tip of the Day

In a recent post we mentioned how cats will chew on their claws to remove the old, outer layer of them. They especially do this with the claws on their back feet. In part because cats more heavily groom their back claws in this manner, you might not need to trim their back claws as often as you trim their front claws. It is often recommended that a cat's front claws be trimmed every 10 to 14 days. When it comes to their back claws, though, you might be able to go much longer without trimming them. Some professionals recommend more like every 30 days when it comes to trimming a cat's back claws, but each cat will vary. Some cats may almost never need their back claws trimmed for them, while others might actually need them trimmed every 2 weeks or so. Older or sick cats, for example, might not groom as often and therefore might not tend to their own back claws much. All in all, try to trim your cat's front claws every 10 to 14 days, and at the same time check the back claws and carefully trim them if needed.

I rather enjoy the look on a cat's face when they have a back leg up and are working on their toes/claws...and I stick my finger in the middle of their paw pads! Hahahaha!
