Mancat Monday

It's Mancat Monday. What better to do than share some photos of a mancat enjoying his favorite sun puddle?

Those there are followups to Evan's sunny selfie from yesterday. In today's photos, though, Evan's being a tad bit of an exhibitionist and bathing right in front of an open window. Any other exhibitionists out there?

Happy Monday, friends!

Flashback Doodle of the Day

Monday isn't usually a day for flashback doodles. But, I had a last-minute change of mind for the doodle I wanted to share for today. As a result, we're simply sharing a flashback today and the new doodle tomorrow.

For today's flashback, I thought I'd actually share the doodle that really spurred the ideas for the stories I've mentioned I'm currently writing. After all, the new doodles I've been sharing lately are ones inspired by the admittedly weird and wacky stories I'm writing. Actually, this flashback doodle I'm about to share was an illustration for a poem I wrote as part of Angel Sammy's Thoroughly Poetic Thursday challenge way back in the early autumn of 2018. That's how long I've been mulling over and writing these stories I've mentioned so many times.

Anyway. Here's the aforementioned doodle from 2018. If you want to read the poem it was created for, which is the poem that really got my current stories-in-progress rolling, just click here.

Tidbit of the Day

As we've mentioned over the past couple of days, we're doing a series of factoids and tips relating to COVID-19 and our furbabies. Today's tidbit is to help your furbaby practice social distancing just as you are practicing it yourself. We've already mentioned how animals are very unlikely to contract COVID-19, but a few animals have been found to have it nonetheless. We've also mentioned how furbabies are far more likely to get the novel coronavirus from us humans than humans are to get it from the animals in their life. To be on the safe side, for both your furbaby and other people, social distancing is probably best practiced by both humans and furbabies.

So, what does social distancing look like for our furbabies? In short, it involves keeping your furbaby at a safe distance from anyone not in their family or household. It involves keeping animals who are making a trip outdoors on short leashes or otherwise contained, especially in areas that might have more people around. If your furbaby takes a trip outdoors for a bathroom break or walk, your furbaby should be monitored, kept close to you, and all in all at a safe distance from others who might be outdoors. When you do need to go outdoors and stray away from home with your furbaby, understand what outdoor areas are open, which ones might be more crowded, and once you know these facts keep yourself and your furbaby at a safe distance from others.Whether indoors or outdoors, it is best to keep others outside of your family or household from petting your furbaby, as well as to avoid petting other animals yourself. All in all, during this pandemic, social distancing is a thing for both you and your furbabies.
