A Terrifying Toesies Tuesday

Hello, friends! Today we have a Toesies Tuesday sort of deal going on, but it's a bit, well, terrifying. You see, the other day, this here human wanted to make some potatoes. That decision was immediately regretted, though, when this came out of that bag of spuds.

Does that look like some sort of clawed monstrosity to all of you? It does to this here human. Perhaps this human is just imagining things, though. Or, maybe Cthulhu crawled right on out of that potato sack.

Don't worry, though. I had backup.

The furry investigators came in and surveyed the scene. They deemed it safe. The possessed potato was therefore cooked up and eaten. It tasted surprisingly non-evil.

Now, though, we need ourselves some legitimate toesies around here.

Whew. There. That's much better.

Have a terrific Tuesday, friends!

Our Doodle of the Day:


Our Tip of the Day:
Next up in our National Pet Poison Awareness Month series of tips is a quick discussion on rodenticides. These chemicals, meant to kill mice, rats, and other rodents, are dangerous all around. Depending on the type of poison, rodenticides can cause any number of potentially fatal side effects, such as internal bleeding or acute kidney failure. Ingesting the rodenticide itself is of course one way in which your furbaby can be poisoned. In addition to this, though, if a rodent ingests the rodenticide or walks through it, and then your furbaby gets a hold of that rodent, the poison can also pass into your furbaby's system this way.

Therefore, to be safe, simply try to avoid the use of rodenticides completely. If rodenticides are being stored or used in your home, garage, garden, or other areas, though, absolutely ensure that your cat or dog cannot reach them. Also monitor your furbabies if you think rodents are in your house and a rodenticide is being used, to ensure your cat or dog does not catch or eat a rodent that has been poisoned. Severe side effects can result from rodenticides, for both the rodents, your furbabies, and even wildlife. So, please do all that you can to avoid their use.

That is one funky looking potato! I'm so glad you have your kitties to keep you safe from rogue plants ... AND they're more than generous with their toesies too!

EEEEEEEK! That certainly was a bit of a FREAKISH 'tater but if it tasted good - then no harm done!

Hugs, Teddy

Wow! That is one scary potato! It looks like a spider is trying to crawl out of it. We much prefer kitty toesies.

Well, I'm glad it wasn't Cthulhu, because that would be so unsettling!

That does look like a big claw :) We actually save some potatoes from the previous year's garden and let them do that then plant them. They are just sprouting :)
I LOVE the drawing with Mr. Potato head. We have a Mrs. to set him up with.
Excellent tip too. I don't have outdoor cats, but if I did, I would be worried about neighbor's poisoning mice and cats getting them.

That potato does have some good claws there. The drawing is just fantastic. You all have a really good day.

Sandee said...

I hate it when the potatoes start growing claws. I'm glad you did a in-dept investigation.

Have a purrfect day. My best to your mom. ♥

Gosh! We had some of those monstrosities come out of our cupboard but none had claws!
Skerry stuff!
I did eat some of their mashed guts after Mom cooked them for supper.

Yikes, that scared me for a second! Or, maybe I've been reading too many sci-fi horror books...hmmm. So glad that the kitties gave it a paws up, and that potato was consumed without aftereffect. Toe beans!

OMC, that creature would have sent our mom screaming out the front door!

I've had potatoes come out of the bag like that too. Very creepy but still delish :)

We like the real life kitty toesies much better than creepy potato ones!

We had no idea what a Cthulhu was. Mom looked it up for us, and that potato definitely shows a resemblance. Mom first saw a creepy, crawly spider emerging from the potato. Thanks for including the most precious toesies of all...kitty toes. The doodle today is incredibly adorable.
