After days and days of rain and even some snow, we finally had some sunshine yesterday. Pup Astrid of course took to her favorite window to enjoy it.
Happy Wednesday, friends!
Doodle of the Day
Here's another new holiday mashup doodle that pretty much sums up November for me.
Tip of the Day
From now through the end of November, we're going to give some tips on food safety. This is in no small part because next Thursday is Thanksgiving here in the US, and that's a time when we humans tend to indulge in all sorts of tasty foods. That being said, though, some of those foods are not ideal or safe for our kitties or pups to eat. We have indeed already shared all of these tips at some point in the past, but this seems like the perfect season to festively repeat them.
Let's start with the obvious foods that most of you likely already know to be dangerous. For example, foods in the Allium species, such as onion and garlic, can be dangerous to cats and dogs. Be careful to keep those out of reach when cooking with them, and of course keep out of your furbaby's reach any foods that contain them. What are some of the other obvious ones? Grapes and raisins, such as if you have a fruit dish set out or if you've made a dessert with raisins, should be kept away from your kitty or pup. And don't forget the toxicity that chocolate and alcohol can pose to cats and dogs. Many tasty foods find their way to the table for Thanksgiving, but some of them are dangerous to our kitties and pups. Always be aware of that, and plan your menu, food placement, and general kitchen safety protocols accordingly.
