Caturday Art

Where do you think that little kitty will take us? No matter where you are or where you're going, have a wonderful day!

Tip of the Day

Yesterday, we talked about the safety of our furbabies around various insects and related pesticides. Today, we have another insect topic, but these buggers are more of a nuisance than a danger. What are we talking about? Ants! If you have a feeding station outdoors, either for your own furbabies or for strays and ferals, there is a chance that you've seen some ants helping themselves to the grub. However, you can attempt to keep ants out of the food with the aid of chalk. Using chalk, you can draw a box or circle around the food bowls, as that will often prevent ants from entering that area. Similar techniques could perhaps even be attempted indoors, should the ants make their way inside. You can even use colored tape or something else similar to form an ant barrier around your furbaby's food dishes.

That all being said, remember that pesticides can, in many cases, be dangerous to our furbabies. This includes pesticides aimed towards ants. If you have ants in or out of your house, be cautious when using any form of ant bait or pesticide. Either find safe alternatives, or keep any and all ant traps well out of reach of the furbabies. It is of course always best to err on the side of caution, and to never use any products that could potentially harm your furbaby should they find it.

That is a great drawing. We get around the house sprayed for ants, but the cats are inside and I keep windows shut the day they spray.

Your art is pawsome. I am curious as to where the boat will go.
An adventure seems like such fun :)
The tip you gave about ant control is great! I purr we don't get any infestations.

That looks like a fun ride. :) And your tips about ants are fascinating. I managed to use window caulk upon a kitchen casement entry and a citrus spray took care of where the little stinkers got under a door. I'm so thankful since we adopted young kittens at the end of 2020. Best wishes!

That kitty is ready for a grand adventure, for sure. :)

Ugh, I can't stand ants. Luckily, they have largely stayed out of our home. Knock on wood!
