Caturday Art in the Park

We're sorry this post is going up so late. This here human yet again forgot to properly schedule our post. You'd think I'd learn, but apparently I've not yet developed that skill.

Anyway. I've been sharing a lot of doodles that take place indoors lately. I decided we should probably leave the house and go out for a stroll today, or something like that. So, here you go. Enjoy some fresh air, and a book, and of course a cat.


Happy Caturday to all!

Tip of the Day

The flowers in the above doodle are my go-to when I want a floral feel in a drawing. That being said, I don't even know if those are roses or carnations I'm always drawing. I'll let whoever's viewing the drawing decide what they want them to be. When it comes to real life, though, it might be important to be able to determine whether a flower is a rose, carnation, or other plant altogether. This is especially the case if you're outside with your kitty or pup, or if you receive a bouquet of flowers, as flowers like roses and carnations can each pose their own risks.

When it comes to roses, they're largely nontoxic to cats and dogs. That being said, roses often have thorns, and those can indeed be dangerous and painful. If a cat or dog walks through or tries to chew on or ingest a rose and its parts and pieces, thorns could cause damage to any number of their body parts, both external and internal. And what about carnations? Carnations are mildly toxic to cats and dogs, and contact with or ingestion of the plant can have gastrointestinal as well as dermatological effects. As you all certainly know, roses and carnations are not the only plants that can pose risks to our furbabies. This is why it's so important to be cognizant and cautious when outdoors with your furbaby, or when flowers find their way into your home. If you're ever in need of a quick resource on a plant's toxicity to pets, the ASPCA has an extensive list of toxic and non-toxic plants, which you can find here.

My father passed away just before we adopted Chuck and Angel. The office sent a basket of plants as a condolence gift, and I had to get rid of most of them, for the kittens' sakes.

Mom says we all seem to know as much about plants as she does as we only nibble on the ones that are safe for us to eat. She isn't sure how we know but we do. Sometimes we even seem to know more than her. Socks ate the cuphea when he had hyperthyroidism and Mom looked it up and discovered it was good for your heart.

That said the rosebush viciously attacked Scylla's tail. Poor Scylla didn't seem to understand that the rosebush she kept jumping over kept growing taller and wider. Eventually it got to big for her to jump and she landed in the middle of it.

That doodle is beyond darling! I've written about my lily scare in the past, and now I never have fresh flowers in the house...dried flowers only!

Cute. We really think they're ranunculus cos TW loves those flowers. We're so used to masks, the girl in the drawing looked strange with a nose and mouth.

I grew up working summers on my Aunt and Uncle's carnation farm, and I think those flowers you drew look more like roses. :)

That's a beautiful doodle.
WE don't have any plants inside the house, except in the sudy where We kitties aren't allowed to enter. But there are window-boxes in effurry room, mostly with geraniums, and on the front porch, there are different kinds of cactuses.
