Tuesday Thanks

Mason Dixie and her Mom Liz are just so kind and generous. They sent a care package to Phantom to help him with his itchiness.

There was a special biscuit that was made from bean flour, apple powder, organic alfalfa, and organic chamomile. In the package there was also a little jar of "Salvation", a healing salve that smells sooooooooo good. The ingredients are organic coconut, hemp, olive, almond and apricot oils, aloe, shea and mango butter, vitamin E, beeswax, and essential oils. Mom says she is going to use it too:) They came from Farm Dog Naturals Inc in Elmwood, TN ( farmdog.etsy.com). The salve is not to be used for cats. If you bigify the picture, you can see the lovely note from Mason Dixie and her Mom. We love you too!!

Phantom always has to sniff everything before he tries it. AND he IS one very picky boy.

Guess he likes it!!!

Here is Mom applying some of the salve.
He lay very still so he must have found it very soothing.

At the end of the video you can see that Phantom moved to a different spot. Mom had given Thunder a piece of the biscuit and he wasn't sure he liked it. So Phantom was finishing up the crumbs. Another sure sign that he loved that biscuit.

And where was TD during all of this?

"I'm right here waiting for someone to rub my tummy too!"


Woos, Phantom and Thunder
