Caturday with Cat-o'-Lanterns: The Sequel

Welcome to the weekend! The arrival of the weekend means we get to participate in some of our favorite blog hops, like the Caturday Art blog hop, hosted by lovely Athena.


I believe we mentioned before that we were considering creating yet another Halloween header for our blog. We enjoyed doodling our current one, but we figured it never hurts to have options. And we recently mentioned that we've had cat-o'-lanterns on the mind yet again, which is probably why we are now sharing this:


What do you all think? Should this be our Halloween header now? Let us know which one you prefer – our current haunted house, or the cat-o'-lantern lineup. You all have to see our header each time you visit us, so we want you to pick!

Have a wonderful Caturday!

Our Tip of the Day:
There is sometimes debate over the health benefits of a dry versus a moist food diet for our furbabies. In some cases, dry food can potentially help keep teeth free of tartar and other such issues. This is not a guarantee, however, as animals on a dry food diet can still end up needing dental cleanings. Nevertheless, in some cases, a dry versus a moist food diet can very well affect the teeth. For example, does your furbaby have painful teeth, or no teeth at all? In this case, a moist food diet is often recommended. There are also special diets formulated for dental health, in the case that a cat or dog might benefit from this. Not only are the teeth affected by dry versus moist food, though, but also other parts of the body. Moist food, for example, is obviously high in moisture content, and so it is often recommended in the diet of any furbaby who might benefit from taking in plenty of moisture. This would include animals with kidney disease, as well as those prone to UTIs, crystals, and so forth. It's also important to think of the foods that cats and dogs eat in the wild. They often eat the meat of prey, which is not all that crunchy and which is high in moisture, which might indicate that moist food is more in line with how they would eat in the wild. Of course, though, sometimes it all comes down to the cat or dog's preference. Some cats and dogs refuse to eat dry food, and some refuse to eat moist food. In such cases, we have to take this into consideration and select foods that they will consume, as food intake is of course crucial.

Very hard to choose because both headers are absolutely fabulous. We love the haunted house.....with the big moon....and shadows at the window....but the field of punkins' is cute as well. If we absolutely HAVE TO CHOOSE we say the house!

Hugs, Teddy

Both are delightful, as is all your art ~ but we would choose the sweet cat-o-lanterns ...

Marg said...

We choose the cat o-lanterns. But they are both great Halloween headers. You all have a great day.

Cleo said...

Agreed, they're both very cute. I choose the cat one, but dad says he prefers the spooky house one. What does he know, go with the cat one. Happy weekend, y'all!

I like both headers, but I definitely prefer the jack O'lanterns, that came out great. Excellent tip too, my KaTwo won't touch canned food.

I love that haunted house, but those cat-o-lanterns are so cute that I have to vote for them!

Honestly, we love them both...but probably the Cat-o-lanterns just a little more.
