Window Art on Woof Woof Wednesday

Astrid wanted to show off some of the window art she creates on a daily basis. It's quite abstract and a tad bit snotty.

Astrid hopes you all enjoy this view of her artwork. Painting on glass is one of her favorite pastimes, and her nose is her favorite artistic tool. Who else creates nose art? Surely Astrid's not alone.

Happy Wednesday, friends!

Doodle of the Day

I was going to say that today is our last Harry Potter-esque doodle for the time being, but then I realized I haven't given housemates Toby and Winky a turn to star in one. So, I'll probably do one or so more. I might try to mash them together in an unsurprisingly wacky mishmash doodle for our Caturday Art post. Moving on, though, for today's Harry Potter-esque doodle I'll give the very basic explanation that this magical series of books contains a certain character who uses a pink umbrella as a magical wand. With that weirdness in mind, here you go:

Did you know?
Did you know that there are glass cleaners on the market specifically designed to be safe for pets? Though not necessarily lethally toxic, certain cleaners, including typical glass cleaners, might potentially contain chemicals that could be caustic or otherwise dangerous to our furbabies. For this reason, it never hurts to do some research on pet-safe options. These days, there are often pet-safe versions of various cleaners on the market, and this indeed includes glass cleaners and other general purpose cleaners. I myself did just a quick search for pet-safe glass and general cleaners, and I found that a variety of companies create some that are intended to be safe around pets. This means that if you need to wipe away that nose art to give your furbaby a fresh surface for their masterpieces, you could do so with their health and safety more soundly in mind. If nothing else, this can also simply be done with plain ol' water and pet-safe soap. Of course, though, do your research, always read labels, and if you ever have any concerns or doubts, consult a veterinarian regarding the safety of cleaning products used near your kitty or pup.

Astrid is quite talented with that nose.

I have images of cat lick on the windows; they don't usually press their noses against the glass. We have animal-friendly glass cleaner.

Very impressive nose art, Astrid! My kitties sometimes leave nose art on my glasses, but their favorite sort of art is done with their claws.

Well done Astrid. We like your artwork and done with the nose too. Have a great day.

Very nice art Astrid. You need to add some colors :) I like the drawing too. Vinegar and water is a great and safe window cleaner.
