Caturday Art

Today's doodle is yet another one that gives away just how seasonally confused I can get. Actually, more specifically, this doodle was inspired by the state of my house last week.


As I struggled to bring myself to take down my Halloween decor last week, I at the same time couldn't decide whether to go all out Thanksgiving, or to just go right to decking the halls for Christmas. There was a point during these deliberations when my house looked as if a holiday war was waging on. Christmas largely the won the battle, in case you were wondering.

That there above really isn't far from what my house very recently looked like. The main difference between that doodle and my home would be the number of cats. There was way more than one cat helping me pack away Halloween and deck the halls for the next holiday. I'm always being snoopervised by many sets of eyes.

That there seasonally confused doodle is indeed what we're sharing for Athena's always fun Caturday Art Blog Hop today.


Happy Caturday, friends!

Tip of the Day

Many Thanksgiving dinners include bread, rolls, biscuits, or other doughy goods. That being said, be cautious and aware when baking bread around dogs and cats. If a pup or kitty consumes unbaked bread dough, especially that which contains yeast, serious side effects could result. For example, unbaked break dough can expand inside the warm intestinal tract, which can in turn result in life-threatening bloat, twisted stomach, and other potential issues. Yeast in unbaked bread dough not only can result in bloat, though. It can also ferment. Such fermentation produces alcohols, which can then be absorbed into the bloodstream and result in alcohol poisoning. Needless to say, unbaked bread dough can be very dangerous, or even deadly, if consumed by a cat or dog. So, never leave unbaked bread dough unattended. Keep your kitty or pup out of the kitchen, or do whatever else you must to keep your kitty or pup from giving that dough and other dangerous Thanksgiving feast foods a taste test.

We love the doodle. It made Mummy laugh. That kind of holiday confusion is what She suffers from over the Jewish High Holydays!

That drawing is great! I just got done with putting Halloween stuff away 3 days ago, but Thanksgiving won out here, not Christmas :) Interesting tips, I didn't know about the dough rising or fermenting.

Hmmm, maybe it would be fun to do each room in a different decor, celebrate more than one at a time!

The holidays just seem to run together and due to REMODELING we missed Halloween and we think Thanksgiving is going to be missed to, and Mom says she doesn't even want to think about Christmas.
