Cozy up this fall with #Mutts (and a cat or two)

Allie: What's this? Something in pink? It must be for me, then!
Me: well...yes and no... I think the sleep shirt might be too big for you, girlie.

But you'll love the comics, and I can read them to you.
I think you'll especially like Mooch's friend, "Shtinky".
Allie investigates the new Mutts Winter Diaries book by Andrews & McMeel

Allie: I don't know, Mother. I have a rather refined nose, you know...
Me: Oh, but I think you'll find a kindred spirit here - just take a look:

I love supporting companies that support animal adoption! Patrick McDonnell's Mutts Comics is one of them!
From The Mutt's web site, under "Meet the Cast". And you can buy a print of this!
Wouldn't that make a great thank you gift for a shelter worker or volunteer you know?

THIS is why I said "yes" when I received an email asking if I was interested in promoting the new book from Mutt Comics, called The Mutt Winter Diaries.

I love it when I find a kindred spirit whose love for shelter animals shines through. And as you can see from his comic above, Patrick McDonnell - and his strip's characters - fit that perfectly. McDonnell is very active in animal rescue and has both a dog and a formerly feral cat of his own, named Not Ootie (ya gotta love that name!).

Mutts Winter Diaries plus Sleep Shirt: Allie approves

Allie: WAIT. Diaries? Did you say diaries? Oooh, everyone knows all the really juicy stuff is found in diaries! I approve, Mother.

So glad you do, girlie. So glad you do.
Maxwell: Uh, Momma, so you said you could read it to us?

Maxwell: Let's do it! A chair by the fireplace, a hot mug of tea and me. Can you read it to me now?

Maxwell poses with his copy of The Mutts Winter Diaries book + sleep shirt (uh, the shirt looks a bit BIG for you, dood)

Here's a sneak preview of what you'll find inside:

Um, Mooch? We think you need a better Almanac, buddy....

The Mutts Winter Diaries would make a great holiday gift for your animal loving friends. So would the pretty-in-pink nightshirt made by Richard Leeds, Int'l.

The book will be available in just a little over a week - it publishes on October 13th!

That's the two numbers that make up your blood pressure reading: the upper and the lower numbers.
But you can't even get a reading for the lower number on a cat!

It's really hard to take a cat's blood pressure. Especially if your vet don't have the right equipment.
Read more about it in our article on Catster!
