The Caturday Scarecrow

It's the beginning of autumn, and I refuse to believe that it's 90°F outside. So, I'm just going to keep scribbling up autumnal doodles like this one over here in my happy corner by the air conditioning register.


Our two black cat housemates, Toby and Winky, informed me that they don't get to star in enough doodles. So, this one's for them!

Of course, that doodle up there is our contribution to Athena's Caturday Art blog hop.


We don't properly thank our blog hop hosts enough. So, Athena, thank you for always hosting this fun and fantastic blog hop! We look forward to it each and every week.

Have a beautiful day, friends!

Our Tip of the Day:

Today's disaster preparedness tip is a rather specific one, and it is to consider using a pet rescue alert decal or sticker at your house. These decals or stickers are meant to alert rescue response teams as to how many and what kinds of animals are in the home. They can be placed on a screen door, on a window near a door, or somewhere similar where rescuers can easily see it. This type of information on what animals are in the home can help in the case of a house fire or any emergency evacuation, especially in cases when you are in any way unable to inform response teams as to how many and what kinds of animals are in the home and in need of rescuing. There are a variety of these decals or stickers available online, but one easy way to get them is through the ASPCA, as you can visit their website and order free pet emergency alert decals for your home.

Alerting emergency personnel of the animals in your home can help them to more quickly rescue your companion animals in the event of a fire or other emergency. This being said, though, please do ensure that any such decals or stickers are kept up-to-date. Not only is this important for ensuring that all animals in the house are properly accounted for, but is also important for the safety of emergency personnel. For example, if one of your furbabies has passed away but it is still included on an displayed pet emergency alert at your home, then emergency crews might put their lives at risk looking for an animal who is not even present. So, while these pet emergency alert bulletins can indeed benefit your pets' safety, also ensure that you use them properly in order to keep emergency personnel equally safe.

Thanks for the share. We are so happy that it's fall season starting today. We have warm weather today but nothing near the ninety degree temperature mark. We love the doodle and nothing says Halloween more then pumpkins,scarecrows and black cats. Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

The art is lovely. I wish you could send us a bit of your heat, mid 70s would be good. We have torrential rain and Temp. is 55F. The sun is supposed to return next week.

Love the art! Good advice - I heard that you need to date those stickers as too many times emergency workers have spent too much time searching for a now deceased pet. They won't take the sticker seriously unless it is dated with a current date.

Beautiful doodle with the beautiful black cats.

Alerting emergency personnel is a wise idea, sometimes in an emergency the family are too distraught to do so.

Love your doodle. Tis the season for black cat doodles. TW had to fight with our condo board to be able to put an emergency magnet on the outside of the door. We had a sticker once but they ripped it off. On the inside of the door, we have my picture over the emergency sticker. Remember to place the stickers/magnets near the bottom of the door so fireman crawling through smoke will see it.

We used to have a 'save our pets!' sticker on the door, but it faded and The Hubby finally pulled it off. Guess I'd better get a new one, huh?!? Love the doodle, since I love black cats!
