A Holiday Hodpodge

Some of you already know that we've been doing some series of drawings that star furbabies who often don't get their just attention, especially in areas such as art. We started with Ten Days of Tortie, moved on to Tails of Tiny Tim in honor of specially abled furbabies, and most recently have been doodling for our series called Black Cat Christmas. That all being said, today's doodle is a hodgepodge one that stars all of the above. Of course, it's also a festive one, because we love us some Christmas.


This is of course our entry into Athena's always fun Caturday Art blog hop.


Do be sure to visit Athena to see the art all of our friends have created!

Happy Caturday to all!

Our Tip of the Day:
We realized we never gave one last tip on that Christmas tree. This tip relates to real trees, and how they might affect your furbaby. If you have a real tree, be cautious of letting your kitty or pup drink from any accessible water in the tree stand. It is possible that certain chemicals, such as fertilizers, are used in some tree lots. Some of these chemicals can then end up in the water that the tree is resting in, and this can potentially lead to toxic side effects for your furbaby. In addition to that, stagnant water can harbor potentially harmful bacteria. Also be careful of pine needles falling from real trees, and even artificial trees, for that matter. These needles are pointy and sharp, and if consumed this can lead to internal damage. So, keep that tree water covered or somehow out of reach, and keep those fallen pine needles cleaned up, so that your furbaby and the Christmas tree can live in harmony.

Love this graphic. You could turn it into cards and sell them. We went to artificial trees years ago when we discovered one of our very first kitties was allergic. Poor girl. I miss a real tree, but the artificial ones are sure easier. Hugs, Janet

I love your drawing ! So adorable, you should design Christmas cards. That is the best tip for real trees. We have a friend that owns a tree farm and he uses very toxic chemicals to keep the bugs away and I am sure they do get into the water.

Love your art as always. I agree with Miss Ellen about Christmas cards. TW covers the tree stand with a skirt so I can't get into the water.

We LOVE your doodle. Good tips about the tree, we are going to add one. Keep the tree skirt out of the water too or it will soak up the water and deposit it where you don't want it.
