Happy Halloween!

My dear angel Rosie hadn't gotten to show off her Halloween costume yet. So, obviously, she gets to debut hers on Halloween itself. Doesn't it suit her well? I have no doubt she got lots of treats at that there house.

Now, this month of Halloween sure has been a spooky one. After all, we had a ghost haunting us all this month.

Excuse the blurriness of the two house panthers above. Perhaps the ghost lurking about had them feeling a bit on edge. They simply couldn't keep the wiggles at bay.

Ghosts aren't all that we had spooking on us this month of Halloween, though. There were also some flaming pumpkins. What's up with that?

Those two up there, the cat-o'-lantern and its stitch-lipped pal, were carved and set on fire by this here human. The ones below were seen and enjoyed by this here human at a local pumpkin farm, where every Halloween hundreds of pumpkins are carved and lit for the public to enjoy. This year, 400 jack-o'-lanterns were on display at this pumpkin patch.

The last one below is a bonus. He's from one of my favorite movies. Who can tell me his name, or even just the movie this little guy is from?

We're wishing all of you friends of ours lots and lot of Halloween treats without a single trick!


Our Tip of the Day:

Our final Halloween tip is to use this spooky holiday as a chance to spend some quality time with your furbaby. Whether you're already staying tucked inside on Halloween night, or whether you wait until after handing out candy, do consider getting cozy and festive with your kitty or pup. For example, you can cozy up with your kitty or pup on the couch and read a spooky story, if that's your kind of thing. Another option is to of course watch a spooky movie or TV show, if that strikes your fancy. Of course, as we mentioned yesterday, do keep in mind your furbaby's sense of hearing and comfort when selecting a scary movie and volume level. For something more calm yet spookily festive, consider sitting down with your furbaby to watch It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown, or a certain famous orange tabby in Garfield's Halloween Adventure. Halloween night is of course also the perfect time to not only enjoy yourself some treats (of course without sharing anything toxic for your furbaby!), but to also give your kitty or pup any festive toys or treats that you got for them.

Halloween may sometimes be considered a night filled with tricks and terrors, but you and your furbaby can instead use it to spend some quality time together in a festive yet safe manner. So, cuddle up on the couch and spend some cozy and festive time with that furbaby! Happy Halloween!

Umm, well, that ghost is a little too cuddly looking to be scary, but those jack-o-lanterns sure are awesome! Happy Halloween y'all.

I love your drawing of Angel Rosie and all the photos of your furbabies with the ghost. Astrid doesn't seem to concerned. Your carved pumpkins came out great and so did the ones you got photos of. That looks like a fun event. Happy Halloween! XO
