Mancat Monday

Evan struck a pose for you all while basking in a sun puddle. Then, though, he had the sudden urge to take a little bath. And so, this is what you get today.


Doodle of the Day

I've been scribbling up lots of doodles set indoors. So, for today, we're taking a little stroll outside for some fresh air on a moonlit night.


Did you know?

Did you know that, in some regards, a cat sneezing could more or less be part of their grooming habits? Whether they inhale some hair while licking themselves or whether they breathe in some dust when sniffing something, a cat might sneeze simply to clean out their nasal passage. This kind of head shake or sneeze is generally nothing to be concerned about, unless of course it's accompanied by excess nasal discharge or other concerning factors. You all probably knew all that already. So, how about another piece of sneezing trivia? Did you know that cats might sneeze when excited, or in reaction to a sudden movement or other surprising action? This is because a cat's nasal passage can have a physical reaction to feelings of excitement or when startled. Some sneezes in your kitties or even pups are indeed perfectly normal and healthy. That being said, sneezing can also of course be caused by allergies, respiratory infections, dental abnormalities, or other ailments, so of course discuss any such concerns with a veterinarian.

We think our furs taste a little better when there's some sunshine on them. :)

Actually, The PO'M's sneezes and his daily scratching and overlicking, are why I've got a vet appointment for him next week!

Evan is a bathing beauty. I like the drawing. Great tips too. My Polar Bear sneezed for 11 years and nothing could stop it then he was put on an antibiotic about 6 weeks ago and hasn't sneezed since.
