Fun With Tonks on Tuesday

Tonks is curious if anyone wants to have a little dance party with her? If you'd like to have a crazy time with a crazy calico, put your paws in the air!

Can you even tell what you're looking at there? Can you even tell part of Tonks this is? These shots probably, or perhaps certainly, classify as bloopers, but we figured they might be fun for you all to see anyway. This is one of Tonks' favorite poses to strike on the cat tree. She especially uses this adorable pose to diffuse the situation when she's caught climbing in the window blinds. Oh, and feel free to give Tonks a tummy rub. She loves them.

Have a terrific Tuesday!

Flashback Doodle of the Day

We have today yet another flashback doodle in a home setting. Since our Caturday Art doodle this past weekend was the library in the log cabin I've been doodling up, I thought I'd share another home library I doodled up and shared roughly a year ago. There's just something about drawing a cozy home, with a cozy library, and of course with cats. I guess that's why my doodles in this vein span back at least a year, and very likely even farther back than that.

Tip of the Day

Today's tip is probably plain and simple common sense that you already know, but it's a reminder we thought we'd throw in here anyway. This tip is to always consider a room's surroundings when placing a cat tree for you kitty's enjoyment. Especially depending on how kleptomaniacal or how good of a jumper your cat is, be sure that you only place a cat tree in a location where your cat cannot get themselves into trouble. For example, perhaps don't place a cat tree beside a shelf full of knickknacks. Make sure a cat tree doesn't make it easier for your cat to reach a stove or oven, an open window or door, and so on and so forth. Also keep in mind the height of a cat tree and features such as ceiling fans. All in all, take an entire room's surroundings into account when placing a cat tree, and make sure you are not setting your kitty up for opportunities to thieve, experimental jumps, and other risks. Of course, also keep all this in mind when moving any furniture in the house that your kitty uses, because even a couch positioned just right could allow an athletic cat to jump onto a knickknack shelf full of breakables.

Sure looks like Tonks is just itching for a good 'ole belly rub. If that doesn't say comfy I don't know what would!

Cats have a different relationship with gravity than humans do, for sure!
