Toby's looking out the window in no small part because he saw his mom drive away hours and hours and hours ago and she hasn't returned home yet. Toby's mom, this here human's sister, left for a vacation yesterday morning. She actually went with our mom and dad. I happily and voluntarily stayed home because, as I've mentioned many times before, even in Friday's fill-ins, I'm a homebody and find little to no joy in leaving home. In addition, I'm happily caring for all of the family furbabies. I'm taking care of my sister's kitties, Toby and Winky, which really isn't anything new since they live with me. I'm also caring for my parents' kitties, all 12 of them. They're all my best buds, so I don't mind one bit.
Happy Sunday, friends!
Flashback Doodle of the Day
Today's flashback doodle is actually one I scribbled up last year for one of our weekly poems. I thought it was apt for today, though, since Toby showed off how handsome he looks even while watching out the window through which he saw his mom drive off for her vacation.
Tip of the Day
It's still Pet Diabetes Awareness Month, and so we have another tip today for those who might know a diabetic kitty or pup. We recently mentioned the importance of diet for a diabetic furbaby, and today we're mentioning how exercise is also significant for keeping diabetes regulated. Just as with humans, a proper activity level can help to keep diabetes under control, this especially being the case for a diabetic kitty or pup who is overweight and in need of losing weight. That being said, though, exercise and activity level also can affect blood glucose levels. For this reason, talk to your veterinarian regarding a healthy level of exercise for your diabetic furbaby, and how to best monitor their activity level, weight, and diabetic status.
