Creepy and Kooky Caturday Art

My doodle for today's Caturday Art Blog Hop serves as an announcement regarding what my theme will be for the April A to Z Challenge. As I've mentioned in previous posts, I'll be the first to admit that my A to Z theme is weird, random, and just all shades of not normal. But, it makes me happy, so there's that. So, are you ready to see what our April doodles will look like?

Is that weird or what? In recent years, I've heard a few people here and there mention how April is halfway to Halloween. I've also heard it called Halfoween. As someone who loves Halloween and all things spooky, macabre, gothic, and all that jazz, I love the thought of celebrating Halloween's half birthday in April. After all, people often talk about and sometimes even celebrate Christmas in July, so why not halfway to Halloween, that being Halfoween?

So, my doodles for the April A to Z Challenge will resemble the above doodle in various ways. They will all have springtime details, especially in terms of setting. After all, it is spring. They will also, though, include Halloween-inspired details. These spooky details will obviously depend on which letter of the alphabet we're on.

So, that's that. I apologize if springtime doodles that also strangely relate to Halloween are not your cup of tea. This Halloween aficionado, though, is super excited. I hope our April halfway to Halloween, as in Halfoween, doodles bring you at least a little bit of entertainment or joy.

Happy Caturday, friends!

Tip of the Day

In these last couple days of National Pet Poison Awareness Month, we're going to summarize some tips on how to help keep your furbaby safe from potential poisons. First, as obvious as it is, we're here today to remind you to use doors or other obstacles to properly block your kitty or pup's access to potentially dangerous products or areas of the house. For example, if your bathroom, laundry room, or utility closet contain dangerous chemicals, such as detergents, then keep their doors securely closed to bar your furbaby's entrance. Similarly, keep the door to your garage shut, in order to keep your furbaby away from gasoline, antifreeze, and other dangers that might be found in the garage. If you have a shed and your furbaby goes outdoors, keep the shed's door securely closed, especially if it houses fertilizers, pesticides, or other potentially toxic products. And don't forget to consider your garden, where toxic plants might grow, or where dangerous chemicals might be used. In such cases, monitor your furbaby while outdoors, and block your kitty or pup's access to the garden, such as with a secure fence. In short, consider all areas of the house and yard where poisoning or danger might arise, and ensure proper safety against said dangers.

We're ready for summer. After the winter we had, we don't want to think about Halloween. Cute drawing though.
