Isn't Friday such a wonderful day of the week? We sure think it is. That's in no small part because it's the day of the Friendly Fill-Ins challenge. If you'd like to join us in filling in some fill-ins but missed the fill-in statements yesterday, we'll share them again here. Ellen of 15andmeowing came up with the first two, and I came up with the second two.
1. I like being _________.
Who's ready for a fix of Eddy? Actually, you'll be getting a fix of Eddy and Evan, because Eddy wanted to pose with her favorite orange boy.
In true Eddy style, and in the true style of this here novice photographer of a human, this photo is very far from high quality. But, it shows off how Eddy loves her some Evan, and that's what Eddy wanted the world to know today.
Happy Friday, friends!
Flashback Doodle of the Day
Today is the last day I'm sharing an autumnal flashback doodle from 2018 that I plan to recreate over the next week. Our first recreation of these flashback doodles will actually be shared tomorrow, for Athena's Caturday Art Blog Hop. I'm having a great time finding ways to recreate these 2-year-old doodles in my more current style of drawing. I'm also enjoying them because I get to draw cats and books in autumnal settings. Anyway, here's the last doodle we'll be recreating for the upcoming week.
Today's Pet Diabetes Awareness Month tip is to know and understand symptoms of and potential treatments for diabetic complications such as hypoglycemia (low blood sugar). As we mentioned yesterday, hypoglycemia might result from a cat or dog failing to eat. Especially if they are still given insulin even when not eating, their blood sugar can drop dangerously. Hypoglycemia can result in any number of symptoms, which might include increased appetite, vomiting, rapid breathing, lethargy, and difficulty walking.
One quick trick to potentially help a hypoglycemic cat or dog in an emergency is to have honey, maple syrup, corn syrup, or some form of sugar syrup available. Rubbing a sugary substance such as one of these on a hypoglycemic animal's gum line or in their cheeks can help to raise their glucose to a safer level. Of course, discuss with your veterinarian any questions you have regarding hypoglycemia and reversing it. Also alert your veterinarian of any hypoglycemic events your furbaby has, so that better diabetes management can be achieved. What's more, get a hypoglycemic furbaby to the vet as soon as possible, if needed.
