Thank goodness it's Friday, right? One reason we're glad it's Friday is because it's time for the Friendly Fill-Ins challenge. If you'd like to join in but missed the fill-in statements yesterday, we'll share them again below. Ellen of 15andmeowing came up with the first two, and I came up with the second two.
1. So far 2021 is _________.
(I've actually never read The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky, but I've always liked and related to that title. When I'm out and about at social gatherings, I'm admittedly that person who tries to disappear in the corner. I'm just not a very social person, and at any given moment I'd much rather be home in the company of just myself and my furbabies. If I do partake in a social event, though, I'm honestly more than happy to just keep myself company. Not only am I more comfortable being left to my own devices, but that also allows me to people watch and to simply observe the scene, which I actually enjoy.)
If you do notice your furbaby's paw pads are dry, cracking, or bleeding, or if they are displaying any discomfort when walking, consider options for treating and combating paw pad dryness and discomfort. There are pet paw salves on the market that are intended to combat dryness and to protect paws pads that often go outdoors. In some cases, petroleum jelly might be deemed safe to wipe onto the paw pads before they head outdoors, but this is sometimes a debated option. More importantly, when it comes to the health, safety, and comfort of your furbaby and their paws, it is of course always recommended to discuss the matter with a veterinarian. A veterinarian can check for any damage to the paws, and can also best recommend treatment for or prevention of dryness, cracking, and other injury to the paw pads. So, do be observant of the state of your kitty or pup's paws, and seek veterinary care if you have any concerns.
