Anyway, shall we get to today's flashback doodle? Yet again, it's one from the 2019 A to Z Challenge, during which our theme was simply calico angel Rosie going through her day doing, well, daily things. Today's flashback was the first doodle of that 2019 A to Z Challenge, and it involved Rosie's alarm clock rudely waking her up for the day.
Happy Caturday, friends!
Tip of the Day
We're admittedly doing some more repeat tips. April was Heartworm Awareness Month. Since each day last month we shared tips relating to our A to Z Challenge, we did not get the chance to share any heartworm prevention tips. So, in hopes that late is truly better than never, we'll now be sharing some heartworm tips. Many of these are repeat tips from multiple years in the past, but this is a significant topic that we don't mind repeating.
We'll start simple and remind you all that heartworms come from mosquitoes, and a dog or cat can become infected if they are bit by a mosquito carrying larvae. This can occur in either indoor or outdoor furbabies. For indoor animals, you can try to keep all windows and doors closed, in hopes to prevent mosquito entry into the house. However, they can enter through cracks, or simply when you open the door. What’s more, it is possible for mosquitoes to be out and about year round, even in the winter. For this reason, our first heartworm prevention tip is to simply ensure that you keep your dogs and cats on preventatives that include heartworm coverage, and that you do this year round.
