Caturday Art

Sorry this post is going up so late. I apparently yet again forgot to schedule our post, and I only just now realized.

Earlier this week we shared a doodle that was the exterior of a Victorian style house I had envisioned in my mind. Another day this week we shared a doodle that was what I pictured to be that home's kitchen. Now, today, we have for you that Victorian home's living room, or parlor. Don't worry, there's a cozy kitty in there.


Happy Caturday to all!

Tip of the Day

Today's tip is about none other than newspapers. If you are still subscribed to and receive a physical newspaper, perhaps check in with your local animal shelters and rescues and ask if they are in need of any. Many shelters still use newspapers as an easily donated and easily disposable lining for cages, and for this reason donations of newspapers are often appreciated by shelters and rescues. You can check the shelter or rescue website or their social media, or you can call or otherwise message them, to see if they have a list of items they need. Newspapers won't be the only item on that list, as many shelters also need items such as towels and blankets, pet bowls, carriers, paper towels, various cleaning agents, food, litter, and so on and so forth. So, whether it be newspapers or other items a shelter or rescue expresses a need for, perhaps consider donating requested items that you have and that are in good condition but that you no longer need. If it fits into your budget, you can also make a trip to the store and get even a basic supply or two that a shelter or rescue could use, as anything truly counts. As much as we love animals, we might sometimes forget just how much a donation of even basic supplies can mean to the workers and animals at a shelter or rescue.

A lovely room!

You can also turn old newspaper, if the shelter doesn't need more, into cat litter.

No parlor would be complete without a snuggly kitty! :)

I adore our Victorian house, although a lot of changes were made in the 1920's and 1940's!
We still get a newspaper three days a week, and use it to wrap peeballs and pooplogs in...

I love the drawing. Great tips too. I have donated towels, but never newspapers because we use them to line litter boxes.

Rosy art! We donate towels and cleaning supplies but never thought about newspaper. Thanks for the idea.

What a lovely, cosy looking home in that doodle!

About newspapers - We love shredding newspapers and even though it makes a mess, Our Human says she'd rather We do that than shred the Furr-niture (mol).
