We hope each and every one of you had a very merry Christmas! Over the past couple of days, I partook in wonderful and restful Christmas celebrations with my furbabies and immediate family. During that time, I didn't open my sketchbook at all, which means I didn't finish any new doodles for today's Caturday Art Blog Hop. So, for today's artsy shares, online I found a snowy, animated overlay to apply to some of my most recent festive outdoor doodles.
Did your kitty or pup get new toys for Christmas? We're thinking many of them probably did. Now that all such new Christmas gifts have been opened and are being enjoyed, consider going through your furbaby's toy stash, pulling out the ones they don't use, and donating them to a shelter or rescue. Many shelters will accept such toys as long as they are clean, as well as easily cleaned, and in good condition. Of course, it is nonetheless always best to do your research regarding an individual shelter or rescue's requirements for donations. Donating toys that your kitty or pup has accumulated but does not use not only keeps your furbaby's toy stash at manageable levels, but also of course benefits shelter kitties and pups who are awaiting their forever homes. This might also go for unopened cans of food your furbaby will not eat, and even clean blankets they do not use. Christmas is indeed the season of giving, and even though the 25th of December has passed, that spirit of giving does not need to come to an end.
