Well, that's not entirely true. Once a year, the county fair comes to town, art show and all. Back when I was a kid, each year I would enter pencil drawings to the fair's art show. To stick to that tradition, I still make sure to complete at least one pencil drawing each year for the fair. Well, the fair starts today, which means a pencil drawing was in store.
It had been a while since I'd drawn a picture starring our housemate Toby, my sister's cat (and one of Thimble's biological brothers). So, this fuzzy black little dude was selected as my subject for my pencil drawing. As for the rest of the inspiration? Well, let's just suffice it to say that my sister and I often joke that Toby sometimes reminds us of a dragon (especially Toothless from How to Train Your Dragon, to be exact). Well, mix that with the fact that Toby has a habit of loitering outside of any and all doors and entryways, and this admittedly random and perhaps weird drawing happened:
I don't know what goes on in my head sometimes. Lately, though, it's apparently involved cat-dragons and castles. Weird, huh?
Happy Caturday, everybuddy!
Our Tip of the Day:Today's tip is a quick and simple one, and it's to consider adopting a black cat, or sponsoring one, or spreading the news about how wonderful they are. As many of you know, black cats are often considered taboo or bad luck, and so their adoption stats are often rarely as promising as those of other cats. So, please don't let black cat rumors fool you. Black cats are great, and more than perfect and adoptable. Please help break the mold and consider adopting a black cat, fostering one, sponsoring one, spreading the news about an adoptable one in your area, or even going to volunteer at a shelter and spending time with one to give it a little extra love. Black cats are purrfect, too!
