Tonks Outtakes on Tuesday

Tonks was jealous that Eddy as well as Astrid will be sharing bloopers tomorrow for Mudpie and Melissa's Pet Photo Fails! Blog Hop (our fantastic hosts moved this fun hop from Friday to tomorrow so that Rainbow Bridge Bridge Remembrance Day can be honored on Friday). So, Tonks decided to snap and share some bloopers of herself today. Let's be real, though, these were more the fault of this here photographer, who failed to focus the camera on the desired subject. Well, that's to blame on top of Tonks's desire to charge the camera rather than pose for it.

Well, we certainly failed to get a good shot of Tonks's cute little eye. Did we fare any better trying to snap a shot of her cute little chin?

No, no we did not.

Have a terrific Tuesday, friends!


Flashback Doodle of the Day

We're sharing some extra flashback doodles while I work on writing projects and while I eagerly get a head start on my autumn and Halloween doodles. The first series of flashback doodles I've been sharing is from 2018, and it's all about writing. You know, like what this little kitty is doing.


Tip of the Day

We've mentioned feline acne on our blog before, but it's been a while, and since this ailment is not terribly uncommon, we thought we'd mention it again. Cats can indeed get acne, largely on their chin. Probably the most common sign of acne in cats is a dirty appearance of the chin, or what might look like blackheads. Some cats might also end up with more severe sores or even a swollen chin or swollen lips. Especially if your cat has a severe case of acne, of course have them seen and treated by a veterinarian. Treatment of acne might very well include a cleaning agent to help heal the acne. Depending on the severity of the acne, as well as perhaps depending on the veterinarian, some cases need treatment as simple as hydrogen peroxide applied to the chin with a cotton ball, while others might involve prescription topical treatment or other prescription medication.

What's more, to treat as well as to prevent feline acne, a change in the type of food and water bowls might be needed. Plastic water bottles are the most likely to lead to feline acne, as plastic can easily develop scratches that can harbor bacteria or other debris that can cause acne. The best types of bowls to use for your kitty's food and water are stainless steel. Glass or ceramic bowls might also help reduce acne. In addition to this, it is of course best to regularly clean the bowls, even if the bowls are stainless steel, glass, or ceramic. So, if your kitty has acne, or if you want to prevent feline acne, invest in stainless steel or perhaps glass or ceramic bowls, and also clean those bowls regularly. If your kitty develops acne, discuss treatment, hygiene, and other options with your veterinarian.
