Tonks Tuesday

Who remembers last year when Tonks showed off the large, stuffed scarecrow we keep in a mini rocking chair this time of year?

Tonks also sure loves to drag this poor fellow around the house. He regularly has to be returned to his chair, and then he gets sat on again. What a life he leads.

Happy Tuesday, friends!

Tip of the Day

Can you believe we're still on the topic of pumpkins? We talked about the benefits of pumpkin, and even pumpkin seeds. All of that aside, though, always keep in mind the age and condition of any pumpkins to which your furbaby has access. This time of year, pumpkins are indeed often used as beautiful outdoor decorations or spooky jack-o'-lanterns. Pumpkins won't stay pretty forever, though, and we're sure you've all witnessed the ultimate demise of pumpkins. That being said, old pumpkins can indeed begin to rot, and if pumpkins in this state are consumed by your kitty or pup, issues such as gastrointestinal distress can occur.

In addition, also keep wildlife in mind with regard to this, as old, rotting food may not sit well for them either. What's more, pumpkins that are left to sit outside and rot will sometimes ferment. If squirrels or other wildlife consume fermented pumpkins, they can potentially end up in a more or less drunken state. Therefore, be sure to compost or otherwise dispose of old pumpkins in a timely, safe, secure manner, for the safety of your furbabies as well as wildlife.

That is too funny about Tonks pulling the scarecrow around. I love the drawing and the tips are excellent. XO

I'd better watch out!
When CB climbs into my lap, he'd better not try to drag me around the house too!

It's a good thing straw is rather sturdy material, i'd say.

The visual of Tonls dragging it around the house made us MOL!
