Pup Astrid's Thanksgiving Prep

While all the kitties are playing with the turkey toy they've been showing off the past few days, pup Astrid is thankful for a different sort of thing. And what is that thing Astrid's thankful for?

Naps. This pup is thankful for naps.

Astrid knows she has to rest up to prepare for all that turkey tomorrow. The edible kind. Not that fuzzy little dude the kitties keep throwing around.

Happy Wednesday, friends! Pup Astrid hopes you're taking plenty of naps in order to prepare for a day of Thanksgiving feasting!

Thankful Doodle of the Day

Tip of the Day

Many Thanksgiving dinners include bread, rolls, biscuits, or other doughy goods. That being said, be cautious and aware when baking bread around dogs and cats. If a pup or kitty consumes unbaked bread dough, especially that which contains yeast, serious side effects could result. For example, unbaked bread dough can expand inside the warm intestinal tract, which can in turn result in life-threatening bloat, twisted stomach, and other potential issues. Yeast in unbaked bread dough not only can result in bloat, though. It can also ferment. Such fermentation produces alcohols, which can then be absorbed into a cat or dog's bloodstream and result in alcohol poisoning. Perhaps needless to say, never leave unbaked bread dough unattended. Keep your kitty or pup out of the kitchen, or do whatever else you must to keep your kitty or pup from giving that dough and other dangerous Thanksgiving feast foods a taste test.

Even though I'm 100% cat, I do love those cute doggie noses.

The older i get, the more i realize you should never pass up the opportunity to use the restroom or take a nap.

Hope you get lots of turkey!
