Woof Woof Wednesday

Pup Astrid is here with an obligatory window shot, albeit from a different window than usual.

Don't mind the torn and disheveled screen on that window. The sweet and sassy neighbor cat sort of ripped it out of place, and I'm waiting on the necessary tool to arrive for me to attach a new screen.

Happy Wednesday, friends!

Flashback Doodle of the Day

Here's another weird 2019 doodle that I scribbled up with the Harry Potter series in mind. In this one, Astrid is playing the part of a character who goes by the name of Hagrid. He has a magical umbrella, and Astrid thought she'd take it for a spin.

Tip of the Day

Can you believe we're still talking about that litter box? Today's tip in our litter box series is to take your own health and safety into consideration when scooping that box. For example, do you have asthma? Or, does dust from the litter box bother you in any way? If so, wear a mask when scooping, or at least be sure to blow your nose as soon as you are finished scooping the litter. Another safety precaution is to wear disposable gloves when scooping the litter box. Extra safety precautions are especially something to take into consideration if you are pregnant or in any way at risk for toxoplasmosis. Another reason to wear gloves when scooping the litter box is if your cat has giardia or any other parasites that can be passed on to you or the other furbabies in your life. Especially if you don't wear gloves when scooping the litter, then of course thoroughly wash your hands after you've finished with the chore. It is of course important to make sure that the litter box is a safe and sanitary place for our kitties, but it's also important to ensure it's the same for ourselves. After all, our kitties depend on us to remain healthy and able to care for them!

I think the neighbor cat is more sassy than sweet. ;)

Astrid is a cutie. We have one of those tools to repair screens, very handy. Nice drawing and tips.

You mean, one of those wheeled thingies, that helps you secure the screen to the frame?

Astrid, i hope the torn screen is not detracting from your view too much.

Your Harry Potter inspired doodles are excellent!
