Bizarre Birthday Caturday Art

My grandma is visiting us today for a belated celebration for my sister's birthday. My sister's actual birthday was on February 8, and on that day I gave her a sort of special doodle. It was actually a revamped recreation of a doodle I scribbled up for her something like 4 or 5 years ago, and that recreation is this wacky little something here:

I scribbled up this particular doodle for my sister for a variety of reasons. One reason is that, like myself, my sister is a fan of the Harry Potter series and other fantastical things. Also, my sister has been asking me to create for her a series of marching bookmarks, one for each of her furbabies. My sister and I technically co-own pup Astrid, and she is also mom to black kitties Toby and Winky, and so those are the three magical furbabies in this doodle. You can probably guess, but to create the bookmarks my sister requested, I took a print of this doodle and cut it down to make three bookmarks, one with the pup and one with each kitty. So that's that.

We hope you all enjoy this weird and wacky doodle! Happy Caturday!

Tip of the Day

Today's National Cat Health Care Month tip is all about those litter boxes. Especially if you have multiple cats, make sure that you have enough litter boxes with regard to the number of kitties in the home. It is often recommended that you have as many litter as you have cats, plus one. If there are not enough litter boxes, it is possible that cats might quickly find the litter boxes too filled or dirty, or that there might even be some bullying or battles over use of litter boxes. This could lead some cats to have to hold onto their urine or stool, which in turn could lead to issues such as UTIs or constipation. Or, some cats might simply begin looking for other areas in the house to urinate or defecate outside of the box.

Other litter box issues that might lead to health concerns or unwanted behaviors include litter boxes that are not cleaned enough, litter boxes that are in an area that is too high traffic for some cats' preference, litter boxes that are hidden too far away for certain cats' liking, or litter boxes that contain a type of litter that certain cats simply do not prefer. Obviously, issues such as holding urine or stool, resulting UTIs and constipation, and out-of-box urination and defecation are not ideal. For these reasons, do be sure that the litter box situation is suitable for all cats in the house, so that all the kitties involved can stay as happy and healthy as possible.
