Tabby Tuesday

Evan let our housemate Toby star in yesterday's Mancat Monday post. Don't worry, though, because you get to see Evan today.

See? Evan is the star tabby of this Tabby Tuesday! He even tilted his head just right so that you can see those tabby cheek stripes of his.

Now, are you ready for a complete change of topic? Yes? Good. Because that's what you're going to get. Last Tuesday was supposed to be the day that A to Z Challenge themes were revealed by participants. I am indeed participating in this April challenge, but I sort of already dropped the ball and forgot to incorporate a theme reveal into any posts last week. So, here I am a week late, finally revealing my theme for the A to Z Challenge.

2018 A to Z Challenge

The brief theme description I shared on the official A to Z Challenge website is this one here: I'll be sharing artsy spins on classic stories, in the form of drawings geared toward animal lovers. I really don't know how well that explains it. In case this helps clarify it at all, I'll be putting animal-inspired twists on the titles of some classic novels, short stories, and poems, and then creating doodles for these new titles.

As for this week leading up to the A to Z Challenge, our daily doodles are going to be largely about a bit of Easter fun. We'll start with this one.

Wishing all of you friends of ours a most terrific Tuesday!

Our Tip of the Day:
In these last couple days of National Pet Poison Awareness Month, we're going to summarize some tips on how to help keep your furbaby safe from potential poisons. First, as obvious as it is, we're here today to remind you to use doors or other obstacles to properly block your kitty or pup's access to potentially dangerous products or areas of the house. For example, if your bathroom, laundry room, or utility closet contain dangerous chemicals, such as detergents, then keep their doors securely closed to bar your furbaby's entrance. Similarly, keep the door to your garage shut, in order to keep your furbaby away from gasoline, antifreeze, and other dangers that might be found in the garage. If you have a shed and your furbaby goes outdoors, keep the shed's door securely closed, especially if it houses fertilizers, pesticides, or other potentially toxic products. And don't forget to consider your garden, where toxic plants might grow, or where dangerous chemicals might be used. In such cases, monitor your furbaby while outdoors, and block your kitty or pup's access to the garden, such as with a secure fence. In short, consider all areas of the house and yard where poisoning or danger might arise, and ensure proper safety against said dangers.
