A Handsome Boy's Sunday Selfie

Over the Halloween season, Toby tried to share a selfie that was photobombed by one rude skeleton. You know, just a typical problem. Today, Toby wanted to share a selfie that didn't involve his handsome self getting photobombed. So, how's this?

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.

Holy Sheesh, "all 12 of them"! Sounds like the household dad says he grew up in.

Aww. Don't worry, Toby. Mom will come home soon enough. And your wonderful aunt will love and take care of you until she does. :)

I enjoy a nice vacation, for sure...but leaving home is always very hard! I always talk about cancelling at the last minute.

What a nice profile selfie, Toby. We hope your mom is home now and you're cuddling with her...though we know you were in good hands while she was away.

Purrfect selfie, Toby! I don't blame you one bit for preferring to stay home. You have a very important job!

Toby, that's a fabulous selfie. Enjoy your stay-at-home time!

Leaving home is such a wrench, Mrs H tries to avoid it except for essentials and whatnot. Holidays? My, that would be a trip to a new supermarket, MOL
Great selfie though, very representative of many a felines musings over dinners arrival, MOL

Toby, you look furry wistful and no wonder, if your Mom has been gone for hours and hours and hours.
