The Sound of Mewsic

I wanted to doodle up something for today that emanated all things springtime. For some reason, when I started brainstorming doodle ideas for this, the first thing that came to my mind was the iconic "The Hills are Alive" scene from The Sound of Music. I didn't feel like arguing with myself over it, so I just went with it.

I don't know how truly spring-like this doodle feels. Seriously, those mountains are snow-capped, and haven't we all had enough snow by now? Regardless, I hope the wildflowers and happy kitty give this doodle at least a little bit more warmth.

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

Have a sunny, springtime day!

Our Tip of the Day:

Today's National Pet Poison Awareness Month tip is about the toxic gas known as carbon monoxide (CO). CO is not only dangerous to us humans, but also incredibly dangerous to our kitties, pups, and other animals. CO most often results from car exhaust, fire/smoke, and when generator systems fail. When a large amount of CO is inhaled, this can lead to cells in the body becoming deprived of oxygen. CO poisoning can thereby result in life-threatening effects on the cardiovascular system, neurological system, and other important systems of the body.

Needless to say, do all that you can to prevent both your furbaby's and your own exposure to CO. Set up CO monitors in your home, and ensure that they are always properly functioning. Of course also ensure that you have functioning fire and smoke alarms. There are all-in-one alarms on the market that detect fire, smoke, and CO. In addition to this, properly maintain any generators that you have, and do not use them if they are in any way malfunctioning. Also, of course, do not let your kitty or pup into a closed, unventilated garage where a car or other motor vehicle is running. CO can be a silent killer, so do all that you can to protect your furbaby, as well as yourself, from it and its deadly effects.

I love your doodle! I am going to be humming that song all night now :) Great tip too, we have a Carbon monoxide detector.

I can just feel the grass and flowers under my paws when I look at the drawing.
You don't have to tell us about CO. Every other year we have scares on our floor. this yeear FD was here about six times. TW thinks her dizziness comes from breathing CO. Our detector only registers after 30 parts and ever a third of that can hurt you.
