Caturday Art

It's November. Did you know? I thought maybe you got confused. I keep getting confused, because it keeps snowing outside. But, it is in fact not actually winter yet. It's November. So, despite the weather outside, I wanted to doodle up something for today that was all shades of autumnal.


Yes, I did sneak another cat-o'-lantern in there. Cat-o'-lanterns will make cameo appearances in a number of future doodles. For all I know, I'll have cat-o'-lanterns popping up under Christmas trees in my sketchbook.

Today's autumnal doodle is of course our entry for Athena's Caturday Art Blog Hop. Be sure to visit Athena to see all of our friends' masterpieces!


Happy Caturday to all!

Tip of the Day

From now through Thanksgiving Day here in the US, we're going to give some tips on food safety. After all, Thanksgiving is a time when we humans tend to indulge in all sorts of tasty foods. That being said, though, some of those foods are not ideal or safe for our kitties or pups to eat. We gave these same tips last November, but this seems like the perfect season to festively repeat them.

Let's start with the obvious foods that most of you likely already know to be dangerous. For example, foods in the Allium species, such as onion and garlic, can be dangerous to cats and dogs. Be careful to keep those out of reach when cooking with them, and of course keep out of your furbaby's reach any foods that contain them. What are some of the other obvious ones? Grapes and raisins, such as if you have a fruit dish set out or if you've made a dessert with raisins, should be kept away from your kitty or pup. And don't forget the toxicity that chocolate and alcohol can pose to cats and dogs. Many tasty foods find their way to the table for Thanksgiving, but some of them are dangerous to our kitties and pups. Always be aware of that, and plan your menu, food placement, and general kitchen safety protocols accordingly.

Cute doodle. Autumn seems to be skipped over this year in favor of a long summer and early winter.
