Caturday Art

Today I'm sharing a drawing that I scribbled up for my grandma for Christmas. She loves cameras and taking photos, she loves her two Boston terriers, and she loves her cat named Bean. So, I doodled this up for her.

My sister shares my grandma's love for cameras, so I had to ask my sister what kind of camera my grandma primarily uses. My sister told me the kind of camera (it's a Nikon D810, for anyone who's curious), I looked up photos of it, and then I did my best to draw it as accurately as possible. And then I threw in the typical sort of cartoon animals that I draw, which completely clashes with the camera's details, but it is what it is.

Happy Caturday, friends!

Tip of the Day

Yet another tip related to outdoor cat shelters is to ensure that the shelter is heavy enough to stay put, such as in heavy winds. Shelters made out of wood or other heavy material will of course be more likely to stay put in high winds. If you have a makeshift or any form of lightweight shelter, such as one made from plastic or Sytrofoam, do consider placing something heavy, yet also safe and secure, on top of it. This could be a sheet of plywood or anything similar that can safely and securely weigh down a lightweight shelter. In some instances, you also might be able to find ways to tether, bolt, or in some way secure a shelter in place. The weight of an outdoor cat shelter is yet another factor to keep in mind when caring for ferals, so take this into consideration and ensure that any shelter you put out is one that will not blow away in the event of a stormy or windy day.
