Mancat Monday

For this Mancat Monday, Evan has some behind-the-scenes footage from our recent cat tree review. As we mentioned in our review, Evan liked the cat tree's cubbies even before the tree was fully assembled.


Evan is willing to guard his cubby with his teeth, in case you were wondering.

Happy Monday, friends!

Doodle of the Day

Today's winter doodle isn't a Christmas one, but I still threw one of my favorite red trucks in there nonetheless.

Tip of the Day

We're going to try to start some new series of tips at some point in the future, but for now we're yet again doing some repeats from the past year or two. That being said, February is a busy month. At least, in terms of important messages it is. February is Spay/Neuter Awareness Month, National Pet Dental Health Month, and National Cat Health Month. The last February or two, we filled the month with tips on all of these topics. We've decided to do the same again this year, since the topics at hand are significant ones. So, we'll be repeating and revamping our February tips from last year. Brace yourself for a month all about health and wellness.

We'll start with spaying and neutering. As you all surely know, spaying and neutering your pets, as well as ferals outdoors, helps significantly reduce cat and dog overpopulation. This in turn reduces the number of homeless animals, the number of furbabies awaiting homes in shelters, and the number who are, sadly, euthanized due to lack of space in the shelter system. That being said, if possible, don't just stop at getting your kitty or pup spayed or neutered. If possible, consider assisting in or donating to trap-neuter-release (TNR) efforts, so that even those kitties who are most comfortable with an outdoor life can enjoy a life that does not involve contributing to pet overpopulation. All of us here certainly love animals, but all of us also certainly feel heartbroken when we remember that there are a great many cats and dogs without homes due to uncontrolled reproduction and overpopulation. So, have your pets spayed and neutered, and, if possible, do what you can to help in the efforts to have feral colonies spayed and neutered as well. Stay tuned tomorrow for some facts and tips on the health benefits of spaying and neutering your furbabies!

Evan is such a cutie. Good job guarding his cubby hole. I love the drawing. Great tips too- spay/neuter is most important, the younger the better. XO

Evan, life is good, isn't it?
Read a book over the weekend, where a character has a dog that is going into her first heat. There is mention of letting her have one litter, but I was screaming at my book, saying, don't do it!
Maybe I'll write the author; she may be uninformed.

No one would dare take your cubby, Evan!

We love that Evan LOVES his cubbie! And I would guard it from all interlopers if it were mine! Have a marvellously Happy Day!

You will crack up at this. We just received your Christmas Card Saturday! It was postmarked "18 December", and it was clean (no being send all around the world). It was a great pleasure to receive it. Kind of made our day...
