I said that today we'd be sharing a holiday mashup poem for Angel Sammy's Thoroughly Poetic Thursday challenge, and that it would be paired with the first doodle in our new series of holiday mashup drawings. For a very silly reason, though, I'm going to push our poem and its illustration back to tomorrow. The silly reason is that I forgot about a new autumnal doodle I haven't shared yet. Though I usually like drawing autumnal doodles far into November, this year holiday mashups and Christmas doodles are calling to me. So, I want to share this last autumnal doodle before I start sharing holiday mashup doodles and Christmas doodles. I told you it was a silly reason, but this is how my brain works. So, we'll be back tomorrow for rhyme time.
As for this post, how about Brian's Thankful Thursday Blog Hop?
We'll see you tomorrow, friends!
We're still in the midst of our National Pet Diabetes Awareness Month tips. On this topic, yesterday we discussed observing your furbaby and knowing visible signs of illness. In addition to this, if your furbaby has been diagnosed with diabetes, consider monitoring their blood glucose at home. This is of course not always an option, depending on the furbaby and the situation. But, if it is possible, do discuss this with your veterinarian. Your veterinarian can help you learn how to safely check your kitty or pup’s glucose at home, which can be done simply by using a vein in your kitty or pup's ear and the same type of glucometer a human would use. If nothing else, it is of course advisable to take a diabetic furbaby to the vet for regular glucose and/or fructosamine checks, as well as frequent urinalyses, especially in the early stages of their diabetes treatment.
