Do you think the ghost listened? Do you think he'll stop haunting the furbabies around here?
Have a ghostly and ghoulish day, friends!
Our Halloween Doodle of the Day:
Today's doodle is the Halloween card I drew for the neighbor kids. Each year, I prepare a special Halloween goodie bag for the three neighbor kids, because I know their family pretty well. I always include a little card in their goodie bags, and this is what I doodled up for that this year:
This neighbor family doesn't have any kitties or pups, the poor things, but of course I threw a black kitty into this Halloween doodle. They are actually a family who is very fond of and kind to animals, and the kids love when the other neighbor's cat visits them. The dad of the family, though, is one of the very few people I've met that has a severe allergy to cats. His wife once cuddled a friend's cat, and when she forgot about that and hugged her husband later, he had a severe reaction to the cat hair and had to seek medical treatment. That sounds like the most devastating allergy to have. Needless to say, any Halloween treat bags I give to their children are kept well out of reach of the kitties around here, and are subjected to a lint roller before being handed off to the children.
Our Tip of the Day:
If you enjoy watching horror films or other similar movies for Halloween, keep your furbaby in mind when you adjust the volume. As you all certainly know, cats and dogs have impeccable hearing. A noise that sounds normal and tolerable to us might for them sound far more loud and uncomfortable. So, take into consideration your kitty or pup's heightened sense of hearing when watching movies, especially those with loud music, screams, and so forth. If you are watching a loud movie this Halloween, or any day of the year, be sure that your kitty or pup has a quiet area of the home, away from the television, where they can retreat should they wish to.
