It's Mancat Monday, so here's an Evan for you!
Do you see his haircut on his hind end? That's how Evan looks these days, since his urinary incontinence leaves him a messy boy if he's not shaved up back there. Luckily, our veterinary office has a wonderful groomer. She helps keep Evan clean and handsome.
Evan isn't a big fan of going to the groomer. Well, it's more that he's not a fan of getting in his carrier in order to get in the car. That's always been his least favorite part. But, he's getting more and more used to it these days, probably because we've learned that he needs groomed roughly every three weeks in order to stay tidy. I always tell him that he wouldn't need to go if he'd just let me groom him myself, but he says no way to that. The groomer can never believe when I tell her that Evan puts up a fight when I groom him, because apparently he's a little angel for her.
Flashback Doodle of the Day
Today we have for you either the last or second to last (I've obviously really done my homework) flashback holiday mashup before we share this year's new series of holiday mashups.
Thanksgiving is coming up soon enough here in the US, but I'm admittedly ready to just put up my Christmas decorations and start belting carols every waking moment. Maybe I'll go ahead and do just that.
Today is the final of our Pet Cancer Awareness Month tips. We've discussed a variety of ways to potentially help prevent cancer in your kitties and pups. Now we're here with a reminder we're sure you all know, and that is to be knowledgeable of signs that might indicate cancer, or other diseases, in your furbabies. As you're all certainly aware, the symptoms of cancer and other diseases can vary in more ways than one. That being said, always keep a close eye on your kitty or pup, and use petting sessions to do regular checks for masses, swellings, or other abnormalities of the skin, eyes, mouth, and so forth. Also, of course, be aware of any other changes in their appearance, activity, or behavior. Note any changes in their weight, coat, appetite, energy level, mobility, bathroom habits, and anything and everything in between. Diseases such as cancer can even manifest in ways that you might not expect, such as with non-healing wounds or abnormal bleeding. Cancer and other diseases can indeed lead to a wide variety of signs and symptoms, so regularly observe your kitty or pup and make sure they act and look like their usual self. What's more, if you do notice any changes or concerns, never hesitate to contact your veterinarian.
