Caturday Art in the Kitchen

We're of course still in the midst of our springtime doodle series set in a weird and wacky little home. That being said, today is Pi Day. Who knows pi? Pi is a mathematical constant that equals 3.14. That means March 14 is Pi Day, which of course really means Pie Day. Are you following? If not, that's okay. I'm barely following myself.

Anyway. In a small homage to Pi Day, I set today's springtime doodle in the kitchen and slapped a tiny piece of strawberry pudding pie on the table. So, here you go.


On this day of pies, I am indeed baking some pies to share with my family. I won't be making a strawberry pudding pie, although now I wish I were making one. Instead, though, I'm making an apple pie and a pumpkin pie. Those are my family's favorites.

Wishing a pie sort of day to all of you!

Tip of the Day

Today's National Pet Poison Awareness Month tip is about essential oils. There are a wide variety of essential oils on the market, and there are also a wide variety of reactions your furbaby might display if exposed to certain essential oils. Some essential oils can indeed be poisonous to our kitties or pups, kitties typically being especially sensitive to them. Depending on the type of oil and its concentration, exposure to and ingestion of an essential oil can lead to potentially serious side effects, such as vomiting, diarrhea, and difficulty walking, just to name a couple.

To prevent any accidental toxicity or emergencies, it might be best to simply prevent your furbaby from coming into contact with any essential oils, to ensure that your furbaby is not exposed to any toxic ingredients. This would mean refraining from putting essential oils on your kitty or pup, or placing essential oil diffusers anywhere near where your furbaby can reach. Also keep in mind that essential oils and their fragrances can also potentially cause respiratory irritation, with symptoms such as ocular discharge, nasal discharge, or signs related to asthma. When in doubt, keep essential oils, essential oil diffusers, and any other similar products well away from your furbaby, as their health and safety is not worth the risk.

I'm so glad I came to this blog today! I told my husband it was National Pi Day and he asked, 'so what do you do on National Pi Day?' I had no answer, now I do! It was so obvious, bake a pie!

We like the eating kind of pie better than the mathematical kind. :)

Pie is good. Salmon pie, especially (mol).
