Mancat Monday

It's Monday.

Is anyone else as tired as Evan?

Is that tiredness, or just Monday rage? Either way, enjoy your day, friends!

Flashback Doodle of the Day

The new doodle I promised for today will be shared tomorrow. Why? Because while setting my scanner up at my new workspace last night, I dropped it on the floor. Believe it or not, this scanner has been dropped on the floor before. It still works, but now it's having to do some internal realignments upon being plugged in, and so it wasn't yet ready to scan anything. I should be able to scan my new doodles tonight, once the poor scanner has recovered. Anyway, to go with our past couple days of Headless Horseman doodles, here's a flashback doodle of a girl and her cat who, though you can't really tell, are kind of supposed to be reading The Legend of Sleepy Hollow.

Tip of the Day

As we mentioned yesterday, we're in National Disaster Preparedness Month. Our newest series of tips, therefore, relates to this. Today, we're here to discuss having emergency supplies and travel kits prepared, should you and your furbaby need to evacuate suddenly. After all, destructive hurricanes, tornadoes, and other such disasters can, sadly, put people and their pets in the line of danger, as well as without a place to live. Therefore, especially if you are in an area where disasters might lead to evacuation, but also of course simply to be prepared for an emergency, do consider having an emergency kit prepared for your kitty or pup.

When preparing an emergency travel kit, think of the things your pup or kitty might use or need on a daily basis, or even weekly basis. Anything that they need on a regular basis can, of course, be included in an emergency kit. For example, an emergency kit for your furbaby would do well to include a week or so worth of their food, water bottles, bowls, and any medications they require. That is often not all that can or should be included in a cat or dog's emergency travel kit, though. If you rack your brain for anything that might be useful in your furbaby's emergency kit, you might consider a blanket or two, a spare leash, a carrier, a transportable litter box, litter, toys, your cat or dog's medical records, pictures of your cat or dog, and even cleaning supplies, such as paper towels and dish soap. All in all, consider anything and everything your furbaby uses or needs on a regular basis, and then create a travel kit based on that. In the case of an emergency, having such supplies already prepared can allow for you and your furbaby to evacuate and get to safety in a timely manner.
