Our selfie for today comes from one handsome hunk.
Just look at that good-looking mancat and his smoldering glare. Are you swooning yet? We have no doubt that you are.
Happy Sunday to all!
Flashback Doodle of the Day
Yesterday we shared a doodle that announced our theme for the April A to Z Challenge. So, what is our alphabetic theme going to be? It's going to be all about the fact that April is halfway to Halloween, also known as Halfoween. Makes total sense, right? Of course it does.
Anyway. For the last couple days of March, we're going to lead up to our Halfoween A to Z doodles by sharing some related flashback doodles that I scribbled up last year. These flashback doodles were meant to give off some springtime vibes, yet also some spooky and sort of Halloween-ish vibes. That's more or less what our April A to Z Challenge is going to be this year, and so it seemed fitting to re-share these similar flashbacks during the days leading up to our halfway to Halloween celebration in April. Anyway, here's the first weird and wacky flashback doodle.
Tip of the Day
Today's National Pet Poison Awareness Month tip is an add-on to our tip from yesterday, when we reminded you to keep doors closed and other obstacles in place to keep your furbaby safe from substances and areas with poison. Taking that one step further, if needed, child-proofing products can be your your best friend even for those furry children in your life. For example, do you have a curious kitty or puppy who has found ways to open cabinets and drawers? This can put a furbaby at risk, such as if those cabinets and drawers contain human medications, cleaners, or other toxic items, or even sharp or other dangerous objects. To prevent prying paws from opening cabinets and drawers, you can get child-proof, or pet-proof, locks that make cabinets and drawers difficult or impossible to open without dexterity, or opposable thumbs. There are also child-proof locks to keep main doors securely closed. This can come in handy if you have a kitty or pup who knows how to manipulate certain door handles.
We've mentioned this on here before, but also don't forget the usefulness of baby gates. They also make gates that are more specifically pet-proof, such as tall ones over which dogs and cats cannot easily jump. These can be used to block access to certain areas of the house to ensure your kitty or pup's safety. For example, you can use baby or pet gates to block access to the kitchen, especially if potentially toxic foods are being prepared. These gates can also be used to block off garbage cans, laundry areas, or other areas of the home where potential poisoning might occur.
Just as with a human child, our kitties and pups can get themselves into trouble. Consider all areas of the home where danger might arise, and then do your research on what you can do to best prevent emergencies from dangers such as accidental poisoning. Do your best to always be one step ahead of your kitty or pup, as difficult as that may be.
