Today's A to Z Challenge letter is S. And, as usual, we're following our theme of putting animal-inspired twists on classic story titles. To be honest, I had a bit of trouble with S. There are certainly classics out there that start with S, and I even had ideas for how to give some of them an animal twist. But, I wasn't really liking any of the ideas I came up with.
So, I asked my family to start throwing S titles at me, and my dad offered A Separate Peace by John Knowles. That was one of my favorite books from my high school English courses, so I really liked the thought of using it. I couldn't think of how to fit it in with my theme, though, and so I asked my dad if he had any ideas. He immediately said, "How about A Separate Fleece?" And I figured, why not? So, here you go:
I know I just drew sheep very much like these fellas for a recent doodle, but I hope you don't mind the repeat subject matter. Also, I promise there are more kitty titles and doodles coming up very, very soon! It feels strange not drawing kitties or pups every day. This A to Z really is a challenge.
We hope each and every one of you is having a wonderful weekend!
Our Tip of the Day:
Also, as we're certain you already know, please also have your kitties and pups spayed or neutered. In addition, if you are able to do, consider assisting with trap-neuter-release (TNR) programs, which help reduce overpopulation both in the wild and in the shelter system. Strays, ferals, and even intact house pets can contribute to a large number of kittens and puppies being born in the wild. Sadly, these outdoor animals can make accessible and easy targets for cruel treatment from humans who wish them harm. We have all heard the terrible stories of animal cruelty inflicted on innocent creatures living outdoors. So, for more reasons than one, please also spay and neuter your pets, and consider assisting in TNR programs.
