Tonks Tuesday

Hello and happy Tuesday! Here's a Tonks all curled up for you.

Tonks is wishing you all a terrific day!


Doodle of the Day

As I mentioned yesterday, today I'm sharing with you the doodle I scribbled up for my dad for Father's Day. My dad is not only father to myself and my sister, but he's also a cat dad to 12 felines. He has more than a few ornery little kitties, and he loves them all very much. He caters to their every whim, even when they rip the curtains off the walls, and even when they refuse to clean their own bums and my dad has to chase them down with baby wipes.

This doodle very likely makes far more sense to those in my family than it does to you poor souls. But if you had ever seen my parents' victimized curtains, and if you had ever witnessed my dad chasing down his cats to check and clean their dirty butts, you'd get what this doodle really means.


Tip of the Day

I was going through old posts the other day, trying to recall some of the older tips we've given in the past. My search found me a series of tips that we first shared in 2018, and which I'd completely forgotten about. It's a series of tips of life hacks for pet parents, especially cat parents, and I've decided to reshare them now just for the heck of it. I'd even forgotten about some of these pet parent hacks. These hacks may be all sorts of random, but we hope these might offer some pet parenting tips for saving money, saving space, saving time, and, of course, keeping your furbaby happy and healthy.

Today's hack is about those windows, which may or may not be open during the warm summer months. We're here today to ask if you know that there is window screen tape on the market. Did you know that? If you are in need of a quick or temporary fix for a torn window screen, especially if there is any chance that the window might be opened and a furbaby potentially escape, then perhaps look into having window screen tape on hand. This tape can be applied to a tear in a window screen, and is meant not only to hold it together, but is also made to look like part of the screen. Of course, this is likely not mean to be a permanent fix, and may not be able to hold up to a determined furbaby. It is of course still wise to only open windows when they are safe and when the furbaby is supervised, but it might not hurt to have window screen tape on hand in case an emergency quick fix is needed.

Happy nappin Tonks!

About the bums, we are pretty clean, but some days it is trickier than others. Even when we know we could use a little help, we don't like it. As weerd as this may sound, TBT saves nose tissues in a little wastebasket (he composts EVERYTHING) and those are very useful fer pickin off Little Determined Klingons... Because we show him our Bums often enough and he says there are just Some Things he doesn't need ta see all night.
