Mancat on a Mission

You all know the facts. Evan loves his front door. And the sun. He's proven that time and time again.

What's even better, though? When the sun comes in the front door. Why? Because, well, lights!

 Honestly, who doesn't like a light show?

Evan sure loves himself a light show. Because, well, lights are super fun to chase.

 Evan never lets those lights out of his sight.

And, one day, Evan just knows he will catch one of those lights. One day.

We hope all our furiends have a lovely, sunny day full of lights!

Oh, but we can't forget our drawing for today. JNW's Halloween Challenge prompt for today is gate. Although I don't have one, this human has always liked the idea of good ol' classic picket fence. That's probably why drawings like this happen:

Okay, now we wish you all a bright and shiny day!

Our Tip of the Day: 
Fall means cooler temperatures, which is often why some people start to grow lax with their furbabies' monthly preventatives. Please remember, though, that giving monthly preventatives year round is often the safest route for your furbaby's sake. Even in the fall and winter, especially in locations with weather on the more unpredictable side, warmer days can occur, leading to a risk of fleas and mosquitoes and the like. Fleas can be introduced into the home on any outdoor animal or on a human, and mosquitoes can easily fly in through an open door. And these buggers can give your furbaby tapeworm, bloodborne diseases, dermatitis, heartworm, and other unpleasant ailments. So, year round preventatives are not a bad idea. What's more, giving them year round ensures that you don't forget to resume administration once spring hits, which means your furbaby is at less risk from those early bird fleas and mosquitoes.


  1. Have fun in the sun, Evan! Love that first picture of you with the sun ray on your face.

    I admit, I am one of those people who sometimes gets lax about the flea preventative in October. A good reminder for me.

  2. So much fun to see you enjoy those lights, Evan. It sure looks like you are smiling. You all have a great day.

  3. The light can be so tricky, Evan. But with your diligence, we know it will be yours! :)

  4. Great photos of Evan. You should enter that first one in a photo contest, it is very unique. I like picket fences too, but we don't have one either- great drawing. And great tip too, last week I found a flea on Brody which I think Phoebe or Joanie brought home from our trip to the vet.

  5. Love the photography and the expressions on Evan's face. The first photo is really great! The drawing of Evan with the jack-o-lantern at the gate is precious. We think it would make a great greeting card. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

  6. Lovely photos of Evan : he's so expressive ! Purrs

  7. You just have the sweetest little face, Evan! And your artwork looks like a little frost on the pumpkin :)

  8. That sun puddle looks very cozy, Evan!

  9. Holy carp! It that an orb in the first pic on your face or is there a crystal or something in the door? TW has a crystal in the window and in the morning, my furs turn into a rainbow.

  10. Evan you are a cutie!!! I am terrible, I ALWAYS stop giving Dakota his flea meds in the winter...uh oh.............catchatwithcarenandcody

  11. OH!! What a gorgeous orange guy! My tortie Amarula may be in love!

  12. A sunny open door is precious! The Pressssiiouussss...!
