Caturday Art

I am admittedly still in the mood to draw up some sort of spooky winter doodles. These doodles are probably all starting to blend together, but this type of doodling is what's really inspiring me these days. Halloween doodles have always been my favorite to scribble up, followed by Christmas ones, so these slightly spooky doodles with a winter setting are really making me look forward to every drawing session. So, indeed, here's another one.


I've learned that in order to truly look forward to and enjoy my time with my sketchbook, I have to allow myself to doodle what I'm inspired to doodle. In years past I would find myself drawing what I thought was more common or normal or whatever you might call it, but then I'd lose sight of my muse. To keep hold of that muse, I now know that I just need to draw what I feel inspired to draw. For now, that's wacky winter doodles. Can you believe that I even have a couple of winter doodles coming up that star a witch and her cat familiars? I'll admit that probably sounds good and weird, but I'm rather excited about these doodles nonetheless. I hope you all enjoy them in some way, shape, or form.

Warm wishes, friends!

Tip of the Day

Today's winter tip is to, despite the fact that it's winter here in the Northern Hemisphere, still keep in mind parasites and their prevention. If you live somewhere that is warm or temperate even during this time of the year, of course certainly do consider keeping up with those parasite preventatives for your furbabies. The same, though, goes even for those who don't live somewhere consistently warm in the winter. Some winter days are not as cold as others, and parasites such as mosquitoes and fleas can survive and make reappearances when the temperatures rise. Sometimes, some parasites even make their way into our homes and survive winter climates by hanging out in the warm comfort of our heated houses. With this in mind, don't forget that mosquitoes can carry heartworms, and fleas can cause bloodborne diseases, as well as can carry tapeworms, all of which can cause dangerous side effects. For all such reasons, do think about the benefits of keeping up with parasite prevention for your furbabies all year round.

One more note we want to make regards none other than mice. This time of year, mice might find ways to enter our homes, garages, sheds, and so forth, in search of a warm place to stay. What's more, mice can carry parasites such as fleas, tapeworms, and roundworms. This means, especially if your furbaby gets near or even eats a mouse inside the home, or anywhere else, they are at risk such parasites. This is yet another reason to keep up with parasite prevention for your furbaby, no matter what time of year it is.

Great drawing. I love the combination of Halloween and Christmas. Excellent tips too. My hubby went all around the house and sealed it up a few years ago-so far, no mice.
