Merry Fourth Day of Christmas!

Today we're supposed to be sharing all the wonderful things our Secret Santa Paws gifted us, but we have a change of plans and will share that tomorrow instead. Why? Because try as I might, I could not get my computer at home to upload all of the photos we snapped on Christmas morning as the furbabies opened their gifts from their Secret Santa Paws. Perhaps it's because there's something like 150 photos I'm trying to upload and go through. Maybe. So, today I'm uploading them using the incredibly fast internet at my workplace, and then we can finally share the festive fun tomorrow. Stay tuned for that!

So, for this Fourth Day of Christmas, we have a festive Tonks.

That is Tonks yet again resting on a pile of freshly laundered blankets, of course next to the Christmas tree. She loves napping on Blanket Mountain, so I often let her indulge before putting the blankets away. At least she's festive while she snoozes on the laundry.

Merry Fourth Day of Christmas!

Tip of the Day

We've started a series of tips on how you can assist strays and ferals during the cold winter months. Today's tip regards feeding strays and ferals, and it is to make sure you understand the pros and cons of feeding dry versus moist food during the winter months. Dry food often takes more energy than moist food to digest, and animals need to conserve as much energy as possible to stay warm in the winter. However, that being said, moist food that is not immediately eaten can freeze during the winter months due to its high moisture content. For this reason, it is typically best to ensure that dry food is offered to strays and ferals in the winter months, as it will not freeze and therefore will be readily available even after sitting out for some time. All in all, though, it is possible and often beneficial to feed both dry and moist food to outdoor strays and ferals. Tomorrow we will further discuss how to successfully feed moist food to strays and ferals in the winter.

What a sweetie. Seems our cats are attracted by the tree lights too. Except Shoko likes to look at them from afar where Tyebe wants to be right in there.

The suspense of who your Secret Paws was is killing me! Tonks does look festive.

Tonks is a cutie!
So far, the new stray cats that I've been putting kibble out for (too cold for wet food) only eat a small amount, so The Hubby and I aren't sure that they are stray at all, but we'll keep monitoring the situation.

Looking good, Tonks! We wonder who your Secret Paw is?

She's a great blanket inspector, that's what she is.
