Thimble is your selfie star today. The only issue is that while trying to snap her selfie, she got a little distracted by some lights the sun bounced onto our ceiling through the window. She's still adorable, though, so here's Thimble's distracted selfie.
Happy Sunday, friends!
Doodle of the Day
Here's another doodle in honor of the fact that we're finishing up our Halloween decorating this weekend.
Tip of the DayToday's disaster preparedness tip is actually instead related to what might occur after a disaster. Just as with humans, cats and dog might show signs of anxiety or other behavioral changes after going through something frightening or tragic. Especially if they are taken away from their home, separated from family even briefly, or in any other way experience a change in their familiar routine, a cat or dog might start displaying behavioral changes. After a disaster or emergency, even after you find yourself safe, always keep a close eye on your furbaby. They may begin showing signs of separation anxiety, or even uncharacteristic aggression. If you do notice any such signs, do not hesitate to discuss the issue with a veterinarian. Products such as calming synthetic pheromones might help an anxious furbaby, but sometimes more potent medications or treatments might be required to help them cope with their post-traumatic stress. Therefore, always keep a close eye on your kitty or pup, especially after they experience any emergency situation, and do not hesitate to seek professional assistance if they begin displaying any concerning behavioral or health issues.
