Just as we do every year, we are celebrating the Twelve Days of Christmas. As we mentioned the other day, the First Day of Christmas is Christmas Day itself, which means today is the Fourth Day of Christmas. In celebration of the continuation of Christmas, Evan has still been spending lots of time sleeping under his stocking and Christmas tree.

Evan and all of us here hope you have a merry Fourth Day of Christmas filled with lots of napping!
Festive Flashback of the Day
Tip of the Day
We've started a series of tips on how you can assist strays and ferals during the cold winter months. Today's tip regards feeding strays and ferals, and it is to make sure you understand the pros and cons of feeding dry versus moist food during the winter months. Dry food often takes more energy than moist food to digest, and animals need to conserve as much energy as possible to stay warm in the winter. However, that being said, moist food that is not immediately eaten can freeze during the winter months due to its high moisture content. For this reason, it is typically best to ensure that dry food is offered to strays and ferals in the winter months, as it will not freeze and therefore will be readily available even after sitting out for some time. All in all, though, it is possible and often beneficial to feed both dry and moist food to outdoor strays and ferals. Tomorrow we will further discuss how to successfully feed moist food to strays and ferals in the winter.
