Flashback Tonks Tuesday

It was around this time in 2018 that Tonks came to live with me. My grandma had been taking care of Tonks and her litter mates after a feral cat in her neighborhood gave birth to them. After this litter my grandma was able to trap the feral kitty and get her spayed, and soon after Tonks became my very own little calico. Given that and the fact that yesterday was Memorial Day, how about a kitten flashback of patriotic Tonks?

Isn't she just the cutest? The answer is yes, she is the cutest. And no, I'm totally not biased.

Tonks and all of us here wish you a terrific Tuesday!

Tip of the Day
I stumbled upon an old series of tips we gave years ago relating to food and our fubabies. As if we haven't talked about food more than enough times on this blog before, let's do it again. 

Over the next couple of days, we'll give some tips specifically regarding pet food ingredients. As you all surely know, the ingredients that go into a furbaby's food and therefore into their body all play an important role. Let's start today with protein, which is of course a significant part of any diet. Just as with us, our cats and dogs need protein, which can be broken down into amino acids, which can in turn be used to build up new muscles and other tissues. This is why high protein is especially important in a kitten or puppy's diet, as it ensures that they can form the tissues they need to grow into healthy adults.

There are also some other special considerations to make when it comes to protein. For example, furbabies suffering from pancreatitis or diabetes often benefit from high protein diets. On the other hand, a cat with renal disease requires a low protein diet for the health of their kidneys. So, while protein is indeed an important part of any diet, do be sure to do your homework and certainly discuss with your veterinarian what ingredients you should consider for your furbaby's diet in order to keep them healthy.
