Caturday Art: It's a (maybe) birthday bash!

I'll preface this Caturday Art post by announcing that today is someone's birthday! Well, it's actually what we like to call a "maybe birthday", since we can only guess as to what day she was actually born. But that's beside the point.

So, who's celebrating a (maybe) birthday today? This girl:


The only pup in this cat-heavy family is (maybe) turning three years old today! My sister and I brought Astrid home with us on July 20, 2013, when she was roughly five months old. (See what we did there? July 20th, take away five months, and that yields February 20th!) Since that day in July of 2013, Astrid has blossomed into a thoroughly larger-than-life pooch, grown from 30 to 65 lbs, gained numerous feline siblings and friends, and brought some serious spark into our lives. At three years old now, I'm sure this young lady will continue to spice up our lives each and every day, and we wouldn't have it any other way.

Happy birthday, Astrid! We love you and all of your wild quirks!

Great. Now, where's the cake?
So, that brings me to what I've created for today's Caturday Art blog hop, hosted by none other than Athena Cat Goddess Wise Kitty. This one's for you, birthday girl!


Have a lovely weekend, furiends!

Our Tip of the Day:
Did you know that there are chocolate dog treats on the market? Chocolate that we humans consume is poisonous to dogs. Nevertheless, dogs tend to have a sweet tooth and often crave it. The good news, though, is that there are numerous chocolate-like dog treats on the market, many of which use carob as a sweet yet safe substitute for chocolate. So, if you want to give your pup something special, such as for his or her birthday, try some of the chocolate (but not really chocolate) dog treats available on the market.

  13. Happy Birthday beautiful Astrid! I like the card you made for her. I have seen those treats and wondered how they were safe. I have read cats don't have a sweet tooth, but Joanie sure seems to have one.

    I've never heard of chocolate for dogs. I'll have to look for some the next time we shop at the pet store.
