Caturday Art

After some internet issues and technical difficulties, we're finally sharing our doodle for Athena's Caturday Art Blog Hop. It's our final autumn remake doodle, and it's based off of a drawing we shared way back in 2018. If you're curious what the original doodle looked like, just click here. And, here's the remake version.

Happy Caturday, friends!

Tip of the Day

Yesterday we discussed whether it was safe to feed your furbaby a taste of that Thanksgiving turkey. Another food you might find on the Thanksgiving table is ham. Is this safe to feed your furbaby, though? Ham, like turkey potentially can be, is often high in fat. Ham is also often processed or treated, and can possibly contain high amounts of salt. These factors can lead to any number of issues, such as gastrointestinal distress or pancreatitis, if consumed in excess by your kitty or pup. And, just as we've said of other Thanksgiving foods, also be aware of other potentially concerning ingredients added to ham, such as onion and garlic. While very small amounts might not have an effect for some furbabies, do be aware of the potential side effects that fatty, processed, treated, or seasoned ham can cause.

It's also worth noting to be aware of the contents and preparation of chicken, beef, and all meats served at your Thanksgiving dinner. These can all potentially contain problematic fat, or additives such as onion, garlic, salt, and so forth. To prevent pancreatitis, gastrointestinal distress, or other issues, either refrain from giving your furbaby a taste at all, or give treats only in moderation and only when you are certain that the food contains no potentially dangerous components.

You drawing has always been great, but looking back at older ones, I can see how it keeps getting better with the little details. Excellent tips too.

TBT Here: I liked the doodle. "Doodle", ha-ha, for ME that would be a masterpiece! The orange was ggod for Fall, I liked the line of pavers/stones, and the red/white picnic cloth stood out so well. And the cat and books, of course.

The tips were also good. I just naturally choose low-salt products. When you aren't used to tons of salt, a little is just as good. And I often cut off a piece of chicken breast and just poach it plain for The Mews. Besides, they only get little bits as treats anyway.
