Tonks Tuesday

You guys, send help. Our roof is being done. There are men walking and banging on our house. SOS. The kitties are mostly hiding, pup Astrid is downright annoyed with all the sound, and it's really just a noisy time around here.

In all honesty, though, I'm grateful our roof is being done. We had some nasty hailstorms late last summer, and my roof has been in really, really rough shape as a result. The roofing guys were booked all the way until this spring, though, so knowing that it's now finally getting repaired is a relief. Still, though, the furbabies cannot wait until it's all over, and for their sake I also can't wait.

We hope your Tuesday is a lot quieter than ours! Have a terrific day!

Flashback Doodle of the Day

As we've mentioned a couple times now, during these last couple days of March we're sharing some sort of spooky springtime flashback doodles from last year. Why? Because our theme for the upcoming April A to Z Challenge relates to April being halfway to Halloween, or Halfoween. So, here's another weird and wacky flashback doodle.

Tip of the Day

Today we have another precautionary safety tip for National Pet Poison Awareness Month. This simple tip is to be aware and cautious of where in your home you put anything that might contain potentially poisonous items. For example, if you keep medications, food, makeup, art supplies, or other similar items in your backpack, purse, briefcase, lunchbox, or other carrying container, be sure to keep this out of reach of your kitty or pup. When you come home after work or school, put your bag in a closed closet, or on a hook or shelf where your furbaby cannot reach. This will help keep them from sneaking into your bag and getting into any dangerous medications, snacks, or other similar items that you might have left in there.

In this same line of thought, always be cautious where you put your groceries when you come home from shopping. We might bring home any number of food items, cleaners, or other products that contain potentially poisonous ingredients. So, do not leave any such grocery bags or products unattended, but instead be sure to put all groceries and other potentially toxic items securely out of reach as quickly as possible. If need be, for safety's sake, you can block your kitty or pup out of the room that contains the groceries, at least while you're tucking them safely away. 

All in all, this is just yet another tip reminding you to always take any and all details into consideration when it comes to your furbaby's health and safety. We may see our purse or a bag of groceries as safe, but for your furbaby it might not be. So, as always, think ahead and take any necessary precautions, no matter how big or how small, to keep that kitty or pup of yours safe and sound.

That's great that your roof is being repaired, but yes, we can imagine there is quote the racket. We hope they are finished soon, so that the fur babies can have some peace and quiet. XO

Poor Tonks. I am sure she will be glad when they are done. I like the drawing and those are great tips. XO

Okay, kitties and Astrid, here's the scoop. If your humans are wise, and i know they are, they are having a really good, solid 25 year roof put on the house. What that means is that you don't have to worry about his happening again for another 25 years! It's worth getting it done this once and not having to worry about it again for that long, trust me.

Tonks, well imagine this!
We have the roofer dude coming tomorrow, to give a quote.
Our roof has been damaged by hail too, and it's just about to fail.
This is a job that The Hubby would like to do DIY, but I won't allow him to!
