Woof Woof Wednesday

On Sunday, Astrid shared a selfie starring her nose. Today, she wanted to post a sequel to that photo. This one also stars her nose, but if you look at the rest of her face, this time you'll see just how tiring being a model is.

Astrid fell asleep during this photo shoot. She was wide awake for the selfie she shared on Sunday, but being a magnificent model is tiring work and so she fell asleep. Isn't this poor girl so overworked?

Happy Wednesday, friends!

Doodle of the Day

Today we have another doodle in our newest winter series. For Astrid's sake, I threw a pup into this one. Of course, I also threw a snowkitty in there. Because I had to.

Tip of the Day

Today, our Spay/Neuter Awareness Month tip is all about behavior. Yesterday we gave some examples of how spaying and neutering can benefit a cat or dog's health, and the same can be said for their behavior. For example, a cat or dog who is not spayed or neutered will often be more inclined to escape outside, such as to run off and find a hot date. Nobody likes the scare of a loose or lost furbaby, and especially not if they come back with news of a surprise pregnancy. So, to reduce any hormonally-induced escapes, of course have your furbabies spayed or neutered. This is not the only behavior affected by hormones and spaying and neutering, though. Cats and dogs who are not spayed or neutered are also often more likely to display aggression, also often due to their hormones. In addition, there is the chance that they will spray or mark their territory, as well as the chance that they will be more vocal and might yowl, such as at windows or doors, especially if they are in estrus and therefore instinctively calling for a mate. These and other potential behavioral concerns can often be reduced or eliminated altogether if a cat or dog is spayed or neutered. So, in case you didn't already have enough good reasons, please spay and neuter your cats and dogs!

Being a supermodel is tiring work Astrid, you get some rest - BOL! Good advice today, hormones in young cats can be very disruptive - get 'em fixed folks!
