Woof Woof Wednesday with Astrid and Her Elf

We had us an unseasonably warm Christmas. Though that didn't make this here human all that happy, pup Astrid didn't seem all that bothered. After all, it meant more time outside to play with her Christmas toys.

Astrid also received a reindeer and Santa toy, which she'll show off soon enough. She actually got the elf toy early, well before Christmas, but apparently he still required the most punishment attention on Christmas.

Merry Third Day of Christmas, friends!

Tip of the Day

Today's tip is one that can affect our indoor furbabies, and most certain any strays and ferals you might feed outside. During the cold winter months, it can be beneficial to increase the amount of food you feed to the furbabies in your life. This is because animals typically eat more in the cold months in order to produce more energy and heat for their bodies. This is why you might see your kitty or pup heading toward the food bowl more often than usual in the winter months. Then again, eating more food to stay warm is something that far more affects outdoor animals than indoor animals, since the latter are able to maintain their body heat far more easily. And, of course, if you have any concerns about how much your furbaby is eating or should eat, any time of the year, discuss this with your veterinarian.

When it comes to outdoor strays and ferals, if you are accustomed to offering them food outside, perhaps do consider feeding them larger quantities of food, or feeding them more often, during the cold winter months. Their bodies use that extra food to stay warm. Over the next few days we'll be giving more detailed tips not only on feeding strays and ferals, but also offering them assistance in other ways.

Astrid, I'm guessing this toy won't last until next Christmas.
