Caturday Art at the Chemistry Lab

Who's ready for the weekend? We hope everybuddy is, because it's here!

One of our favorite things about the weekend is the fact that it offers some pretty darn fun blog hops, like today's Caturday Art hop that lovely Athena hosts.

With today's doodle, we wanted to show how we're loving all of the May flowers that the April showers gave us. There certainly were plenty of showers to go around, but that's okay, because that means there are now plenty of flowers to go around as well.

The thing is, though, that sometimes this human gets a bit lost. Maybe that's why, though we had flowers on the mind, they came out like this:

Weird, huh?

Actually, though my degree is in animal sciences and I worked as a veterinary assistant for a few years, I now work at a chemistry lab. Some days, I simply have all shades of beakers and test tubes on my mind. There's also the fact that I may or may not be a bit of a happy nerd, so perhaps that also just might explain this one.

But I digress.

We hope the April showers have ended for all of you fantastic furiends of ours, and that you now have plenty of May flowers to enjoy!

Happy Caturday to all!

Our Tip of the Day:
Always keep in mind that some job locations, as well as travel or other locations, could potentially bring you in contact with substances that might be dangerous to your furbaby. For example, if you work at a veterinary clinic or volunteer at an animal shelter, you can easily come in contact with various pathogens that could transfer to your furbaby, even on your clothes. The same might be said if you work at particular types of scientific laboratories, plant nurseries, or any other job or location that might land potentially dangerous materials on your clothes or possessions. For such reasons, try to always be cognizant of where you have been and what you have touched while away from home. If need be, change clothes prior to going home to your furbaby, or steer clear of your furbaby until you have cleaned up upon arriving at home. Of course, certainly not every job or location will cause you to be a potential threat to your furbaby's health, but it never hurts to think about where you've been and what you've touched before giving your furbaby a snuggle when you arrive at home. After all, what do we always say? Better safe than sorry!

That is great advice about being aware of what potential pathogens you might bring home and we would add that you should be aware when you rescue a cat/dog it might be a potential health risk to the cats and dogs already in your home.

We love your art, Science Cat rocks.

That is an adorable drawing. I think that is so cool you work at a chemistry lab. I wish I understood stuff like that, I barely got through chemistry in high school. Great tip too, my niece used to always be bringing fleas home when she worked at the vet hospital.I guess we are lucky that was all she brought home instead of diseases.

I think it is reallly fun :)

Good for you to work in a chemistry lab. Bet that is interesting. Love the drawing and the Mom here loves flowers. You all have a great day.

That's so precious! We'll have lots of flowers because April showers have turned to May showers now :)

We are just getting our April Showers now... The weather has been odd this year.

We think it's cool that you work in a chemistry lab! I sometimes write about the research that happens in chemistry labs, and there's some fascinating stuff, for sure. :)

Love the drawing this week. Glad all your April showers are producing for you guys!

Great advice about dangerous substances ! Working in a chemistry lab sounds very interesting, mostly if the lab looks like your drawing ! Purrs
