I took care of my parents' 12 kitties last week while they were out of town. That of course means my camera is now loaded with photos of those said 12 kitties, like this one.
Today's summer tip is a bit of a fun one, but also one relating to food and hydration. What on earth are we talking about? Popsicles! It is possible to make popsicles for your pup or even your kitty. You can mix water with a bit of peanut butter, tuna, berries, or other safe food, and then freeze the mixture in an ice tray or popsicle tray. Once they're frozen, you can let your pup or kitty lick them. You can also place these frozen treats directly in your furbaby's water bowl, perhaps to entice them to drink a bit more (just be sure to remove any food remnants from the popsicle out of the water bowl, so that no spoilage occurs). These frozen goodies can make a great treat on a hot summer day, as they can also help a dog or cat stay cool and hydrated. That being said, do ensure that your pup or kitty does not choke on small pieces of the treat, that chewers don't injure any teeth chomping on the ice, and also that your floors don't end up with melted puddles of left behind treats.
