A Mess of a Post

Our blog is an absolute mess lately, and we have yet another change of plans today. My WiFi completely wigged out yet again yesterday, and since I was procrastinating on preparing today's post, I didn't get the three promised new doodles uploaded before it wigged out. I was hoping my inimical internet would sort itself out like it sometimes does, or that simply unplugging the modem would work, but that's a big no. I haven't been able to upload my new doodles, or anything else, and I'm having to use my phone and its data just to do this, and I'm admittedly terrible at trying to do anything this complex on my phone. 

Long story short, I'm contacting whoever I need to contact to get this WiFi mess sorted out, hopefully for good, so that our blog isn't such a nightmare. I was going to head to my parents' house to use their WiFi so as to upload the new doodles, but since it's already so late in the morning, I decided to just share a flashback doodle that I'm able to access in our blog archive and stay focused on getting the WiFi at my house fixed. Our three backlogged A to Z Challenge doodles will be shared tomorrow, I will make sure of that. For today, though it's completely unlike our intended doodles, here's a 2019 doodle of Rosie brushing her teeth. Because, at this point, why not.

I figured this was an apt enough doodle to share, since I need to wash out of my own mouth after all the choice words I'm been having with my internet.

Thank you all for sticking with us even when our blog is such an absolute mess. I promise I will get this blog and myself sorted out, something which I really intend to do today, and we'll be back to regular programming in a jiffy. For today, though, we hope you enjoyed this absolute travesty of a post.


Tip of the Day

Given today's unintended flashback doodle involving Rosie brushing her teeth, we're here to share a tip that we've touched upon before. This tip is to consider that household items you might not think of as dangerous might nonetheless indeed contain potentially toxic components. For example, some toothpastes contains xylitol as an ingredient. Xylitol is an artificial sweetener that is incredibly toxic to our furbabies, especially dogs. It is not as dangerous for cats, but it's still something to be cautious about. So, when it comes to keeping your kitty or pup safe, don't forget to really consider the danger of various items, especially items that you might just assume are safe to keep lying around. If you have an extra curious furbaby, or a furbaby who chews on or tries to eat things they shouldn't, keep anything even potentially questionable out of their reach, including toothpaste.

Sorry about your technology glitches, they're a pain.
It's odd but kittens Wolfie and Tilly hate the smell of my toothpaste and run from the bathroom when I get it out.

Trust me, i am more concerned about you taking care of yourself and your critters than i am about you being on track with blogging. Your blog is fun no matter if it's new or old doodles, poems or other fun things.
