In case you were wondering or don't know, I have one sister. So, this doodle is meant to represent my mother and her two daughters. Of course, my mom is a cat lover, which means doodles like the one above are my favorite types to create for her.
We hope every mother out there has a wonderful Mother's Day, whether your children are two-legged or four-legged, or anything in between! We'll be back tomorrow to celebrate the special day itself.
And, of course, our doodle up there is our contribution to Athena's always fun Caturday Art blog hop!
Be sure to visit Athena to admire the art all of our friends have created!
Our Tip of the Day:
Today's tip is one that we have given many, many times, for numerous occasions. We'll go ahead and say it again, though, as it is important. If you are giving or receiving a gift or goodies this Mother's Day, be sure to take into consideration if said gift is safe for your furbaby. If flowers enter your home for Mother's Day, remember that some are toxic to cats and dogs. Lilies, daffodils, and tulips, for example, should be kept away from those kitties and pups. Are you giving or receiving chocolates, or baked goods that contain chocolate? Keep that away from your furbaby, too! These are just two examples, though. It is important that, no matter what gift you give or receive, no matter the occasion, that you be cognizant of whether it could have effects on your furbaby, and do what's do needed to keep your kitty or pup safe.
In addition, if you are having guests over for occasions such as Mother's Day, be sure to take your furbaby's safety into consideration in this case as well. If there is a lot of foot traffic, keep your kitty or pup out of the way of harm, including away from the door. If needed, block their access to the door, or keep them segregated in a safe area of the home. If you are hosting a meal or have snacks out for guests on Mother's Day, or any day, always be aware of the danger that some foods pose. Remember that foods such as chocolate, alcohol, grapes, raisins, onion, and garlic, among others, can be dangerous to cats and dogs. Make sure that guests know not to feed your furbaby dangerous foods, and if needed, keep your cat or dog safely tucked away in another area of the house.
We know we repeat these types tips a lot, but there are many dangers that can arise for our furbabies around the different holidays. The important thing is to be aware of everything that enters your home, and how it might affect your kitty or pup. This way, you can plan accordingly in order to keep your furbaby happy and healthy.
