Caturday Art Carvings

Today, we have two different kinds of art to share with you for the Caturday Art blog hop, hosted by lovely Athena. First up is our usual drawing. It goes along with JNW's Halloween Challenge prompt for today, which is knock knock. We debated over how to approach this one, and on who might be doing the knock knocking. After some deliberation, and a few pieces of candy to help get our creative juices flowing, we settled on this:


And, this drawing segues us into our next bit of art, if you can even call it that. You see, this human here loves to carve jack-o'-lanterns for Halloween. That being said, I am far from a decent carver, and a knife in my hands is not going to result in anything all that pretty. But, with that warning out there, we thought we'd share the jack-o'-lantern that this human carved up the other night.


Have a spooktacular Caturday, furiends!

Our Tip of the Day:
How about another Halloween tip? Keep in mind that it's not just open doors and trick-or-treaters and their candy that could get your furbaby in trouble at Halloween time. Be cognizant of other risks, such as any knives that might make an appearance during the carving of a jack-o'-lantern, or the candle and flame that come with lighting those pumpkins up. Some furbabies like to help out with such tasks, as I'm sure you all know and have experienced. If you have yourself a helper who is a little too persistent around dangers such as knives and candles, be sure to take precautions to keep them safe. Some furbabies can successfully be distracted with toys or food, while others may need to be blocked out of the dangerous area altogether. Remember, safety first!

Loved both. For different reasons.

Oh goodness, I love the drawing for the cats on the door. Too cute. Good job drawing the pumpkin. That really is a good job. You all have a great week end.

Love the art work with the door. So cute. But that pumpkin carving is the best one M has ever seen in her entire life (and believe me she's old). Your human is really good at that.

That pumpkin carving is spooky! Love it! And another incredible drawing as well.

I love your drawing and your pumpkin carving- good job! Excellent tip too, I know my cats are always snooping at what I am doing. We only use fake votives with batteries to be safe. Have a great Halloween weekend!

We love your Halloween drawing, especially that Evan the door monitor is right there in the middle of the action! :)

Awesome job on your jack-o-lantern, too. It's so fun and creative!

Your artwork is ridiculously adorable, and the pumpkin is pawsome! Far better than I'd ever accomplish!

Love the art and the carved pumpkin is marvelous! TW just sometimes draws something on the pumpkin. This year they didn't even get one.
