This is a fairly recent photo of the fabulous Mr. Cheddar, that I hope you enjoy!
Also featured in my new Veggie…header on a much smaller scale. 😉
Wow, it’s hard to believe but the Chedster will be 12 years young this year.
This is actually a guesstimate, as he was a stray when brought to the Humane Society, where he adopted him from.
But no matter what his age is, he’s still such a “fur baby” in so many ways. 😉 So full of energy most days and such a cutie!
Have a great week, hugs and headbonks from me and Mr. Cheddar!
Mr. Cheddar here…
And yes, I really DO love a good massage! 🙂
It helps me to relax and unwind, especially after a hard day of being on “bug patrol” . And with the arrival of warmer weather, those creepy critters are starting to make an appearance. And that is where I definitely come in to keep them in check.
I’m not called FEARLESS BUG WARRIOR for nothin’ 😉
Mmm…mmm good! Nothing like a good spring fly in the tummy.
But I digress.
If you want to learn more about pet massage (yes, for the D-O-Gs too!) stop by and read this article at Alive Magazine.
It’s not hard. If Meowmie can learn how to do this, anyone can, snort…..
Oh Meowmie, take it easy, I was just joshin’ 😉
Happy Weekend from Me ( oh yeah, and Meowmie too)!
Read about a recent “litter crisis”…
at our place and why I don’t like scented cat litter: here.
Yes, at long last, I’m baaaaack… to writing feline product reviews.
And if I may say so myself, I’m getting even wittier and more entertaining with each passing year! 😉
You probably didn’t think that was possible, right? Snooooortttt…
Right on and read on, oh humans and felines!
Mr. Cheddar here.
Yes, the DOG-DAYS of summer are just around the corner.
And today, I want to talk about…
D-O-G-S and one of my Summer Pet Peeves:
Shaving/clipping off a dog’s fur in summer.
I’ve asked one of our online canine pals to join us, the fabulous Rumpydog.
Yes, I know he’s a dog and I’m a cat but he is one cool dude, even if he is a canine!!!
Ain’t he a cutie? And look at that gorgeous coat!
So here’s the scoop and I’m not talking litter this time!
We live in a small city where there are a lot of dogs and usually very hot summers. Every year, there are so/too many dogs walking around with their coats shaved off. The humans who live with these dogs must think they are doing them a favor shaving off their fur, but in reality they aren’t.
Here’s one of many articles online about why you shouldn’t shave off your dog’s fur, unless it is for medical reasons.
Meowmie also asked a couple of veterinarians about this and they said the same thing.
A dog’s coat is to protect them not just the cold but from the heat too.
As far as the groomers who routinely clip off dog’s fur for the summer, well it’s just $$ in their pockets. They aren’t going to tell clients not to do this are they?
Save some $$ this summer and save your pet from getting sunburned, overheated…
Don’t shave your pooch!
There, I feel better already. Glad I got that off my chest! 😉
Looks like Rumpy feels better too. 🙂
