Rosie's Restaurant

April is just days away. That means the April A to Z Challenge is just days away. As I prepare oodles of doodles for the alphabetical challenge, I've been sharing mostly flashback drawings as of late. Today, though, we of course have a brand new doodle for you. After all, it is the day of Athena's Caturday Art blog hop. What's more, with today's doodle, we're announcing our theme for the A to Z Challenge.


Would you look at that. My calico angel Rosie has her very own restaurant. She's quite the master chef, which is perhaps why we're calling our series of doodles for the A to Z challenge "A Day at Rosie's Restaurant". All throughout April, Rosie will be sharing some of the foods on her restaurant's menu. She's sharing them from A to Z, starting with breakfast, moving on to lunch and then dinner, and ending with dessert. If you'd like to know what all Rosie is serving up, feel free to visit us throughout April.

Happy Caturday!

Tip of the Day

Today's National Pet Poison Awareness Month tip is an add-on to our tip from yesterday, when we reminded you to keep doors closed and other obstacles in place to keep your furbaby safe from substances and areas with poison. Taking that one step further, if needed, child-proofing products can be your your best friend even for those furry children in your life. For example, do you have a curious kitty or puppy who has found ways to open cabinets and drawers? This can put a furbaby at risk, such as if those cabinets and drawers contain human medications, cleaners, or other toxic items, or even sharp or other dangerous objects. To prevent prying paws from opening cabinets and drawers, you can get child-proof, or pet-proof, locks that make cabinets and drawers difficult or impossible to open without dexterity, or opposable thumbs. There are also child-proof locks to keep main doors securely closed. This can come in handy if you have a kitty or pup who knows how to manipulate certain door handles.

We've mentioned this on here before, but also don't forget the usefulness of baby gates. They also make gates that are more specifically pet-proof, such as tall ones over which dogs and cats cannot easily jump. These can be used to block access to certain areas of the house to ensure your kitty or pup's safety. For example, you can use baby or pet gates to block access to the kitchen, especially if potentially toxic foods are being prepared. These gates can also be used to block off garbage cans, laundry areas, or other areas of the home where potential poisoning might occur.

Just as with a human child, our kitties and pups can get themselves into trouble. Consider all areas of the home where danger might arise, and then do your research on what you can do to best prevent emergencies from dangers such as accidental poisoning. Do your best to always be one step ahead of your kitty or pup, as difficult as that may be.

Looking forward to Angel Rosie's delectibles!
When people tell me that they think they can leave their cats alone at home for several days, I remind them that despite food, water, and litter box issues, what about when your cat climbs into something that they cannot get out of, or something falls? I believe that I've talked several people out of being stupid with their cats.

Great theme but I was wondering about takeout also. My restaurant Chez Keisha is delivering through Nom Hub.
