A Sick Kitty With Festive Flashback Caturday Art on the Side

It's a late post and a change of my original plans for today. We've mentioned how we're going to be sharing brand new Halloween doodles every day next week, and the first one was actually supposed to be shared to today. I have a couple of those brand new Halloween doodles all but done, with just a couple of final touches needing completed. I wasn't able to complete those final touches on any of them before today, though. The main reason is that for the past two evenings I've been helping my parents tend to one of their cats, one evening even going to the emergency vet with my mom and her sick little kitty.

Don't worry, because this sweet little kitty is doing fine. The cat in question is actually Tonks and Winky's litter mate Flitwick, who owns my parents. What's going on is that Flitwick is a 2-year-old male cat and he's having trouble urinating. Us and the emergency vet, as well as our usual vet, are all trying to make sure Flitwick does not have a urinary blockage, or that he doesn't become blocked. So far, his urinary issues just appear to be a nasty UTI. Possible crystals in his bladder were noted on some x-rays, though, so we're keeping a close eye on him as well as medicating him with some drugs that will hopefully help him urinate and ideally prevent a urinary blockage. If you have some purrs and prayers to spare, Flitwick could use them. He's been acting like his usual sweet self, but the poor boy just can't get comfortable to urinate properly.

So, after spending time at the emergency vet and helping my parents tend to and medicate sweet Flitwick, I didn't get the final touches on the doodle that was supposed to be shared today. Now that it's wonderfully the weekend, I have extra time to have some Halloween fun in my sketchbook. For today, though, we're going to share two festive flashback Halloween doodles. The first one was the doodle we shared on Halloween day last year, and the second one, which stars my angel Rosie, was what we shared on Halloween day in 2018.


Happy Caturday, friends!

Tip of the Day

Today's Halloween tip is to know your local area's trick-or-treat details in order to be prepared, whether or not you are handing out candy or otherwise joining in on the festivities. Two of the important things to know are when trick-or-treat hours are, and what indicates whether trick-or-treaters should come to your door. Of course, this year there may be some other special instructions to learn, thanks to pandemic life. It's important to know these Halloween festivity details so that you can have your pup or kitty home from a walk before traffic increases, for example, or to have your black cats and other furbabies safely inside before people begin filling the streets in search of candy. If you are handing out candy, it's good to know trick-or-treat hours so that you can have your kitty or pup tucked securely away from the door before the first trick-or-treaters arrive. In many areas, a house with its post light on is one where trick-or-treaters can go for some loot. In the event that you're handing out candy, be sure to only have your post light on when you're furbaby is in a safe area of the home, again away from the door. If you are not handing out candy, it's of course still important to know the hours and other details of Halloween festivities in your area. This will ensure that you can have your post light off at the correct hours, in order to avoid knocks at the door or the doorbell ringing and scaring your furbaby needlessly. It's always good to be informed of the details of anything that might affect your furbaby, and that includes Halloween night festivities.

I will add Flitwick to my prayer list, poor guy. I love these two doodles. Luckily, my memory isn't that great so they are new to me. :)

Sending healing purrz to Flitwick. TW knows about cat blockages. Once a week she was rushing Chizzy to the vet after work for crystals and such.
Scary but fun doodle.

Praying for Flitwick, we have all of our cats on S/O index food because one had crystals and we do not want a repeat.

Love the doodles!

Great doodles. We love the one with Angel Rosie trick or treating. We're purring for Flitwick to be better real soon.

Cleo said...

We're sending all the purrs and purrayers we can muster in hopes they help poor Flitwick get better and be able to pee without pain and discomfort real soon.

Healing purrs for Flitwick (we just love his name). Thanks for the Halloween tips we live on a busy road and don't usually have Trick or Treaters but the Grandkids are suppose to come by to snag some candy. We just love your doodles as always.
