Kooky Caturday Art

Our doodle for today is kooky and random and was supposed to be shared a week ago. It's an illustration for the poem I scribbled up for Angel Sammy's Thoroughly Poetic Thursday challenge on the first day of this month. I didn't share it on that day because I hadn't finished it yet. But then I did finish it and never shared it at all. So, why not share it today, I guess. The poem was a bit witchy with some brews and an orange kitty. If you'd like to read the wacky poem, just click here. Either way, here's its equally wacky doodle.


Happy Caturday, friends!

Tip of the Day

Do you have furbabies who spend time outdoors, and who therefore have water and food bowls outside? Sometimes the wind can wreak havoc on said bowls, especially if they are lightweight. One cheap way to combat this is to get a couple of same-sized buckets, such as ice cream buckets. You can put a couple inches of sand or rock at the bottom of one of the buckets, and then place the other identical bucket within the one weighed down by the sand. Then, the bucket on top can be filled with water, or even food. Since it will be snugly nestled within the weighted bucket, this will help it stay put in the wind. Of course, do make sure that any water or food placed in such buckets are not difficult to reach. For example, large buckets would work fine for offering food and water to large dogs, but likely not so well for smaller cats. So, simply consider the size of the animal in question, and try to rig a feeding and drinking station that suits them. For cats, you can try the above method, just with smaller containers. Then again, you can also simply look on the market for heavy, sturdy bowls that could combat the wind. No matter what method you use, take even the wind into consideration when feeding furbabies outdoors, and think outside the box to find a safe way to combat it as needed.

The doodle reminds Mummy of one of the songs She and her Caterwauling Club purrformed at their concert last week - Double Double, Toil and Trouble (mol).
