As you might notice in Evan's window view there, we're still waiting for the leaves of our trees to turn all shades of orange. We'll get there, though. In between some uncomfortably warm days, we've finally been having some cool, crisp weather. Autumn is out there. We can feel it!
We hope all of you friends of ours have a magnificent Monday and a fantastic first day of October!
Our Doodle of the Day:
Over the past two days, our doodles have shown angel Rosie picking out a pumpkin from the pumpkin patch and then pondering what to do with her big orange squash. So, what did Rosie decide on? Well, she decided to carve her pumpkin...
...into a cat-o'-lantern!
Last year, I spent essentially all of October doodling up cat-o'-lanterns. It was very difficult for me to part with the cat-o'-lantern doodles once October came to an end and it was time to let Thanksgiving and Christmas have a turn. But, now it's back to cat-o'-lantern season! So, indeed, you can expect lots and lots of cat-o'-lanterns from us.
Our Tip of the Day:
Given how much we love Halloween here, we're going to see if we can't make a series of tips on Halloween last all the way through October. We're going to start today with none other than the festive decorations. Most people might be more cognizant of their decorations and how they might affect the resident furbabies around Christmastime. However, also keep pet-safety in mind if you put up Halloween decorations. Halloween decorations can come in all shapes and sizes, such as wreaths, garland, and all sorts of trinkets and goodies in between. If you're anything like us, you have all sorts of black cats and pumpkins out on display this time of year. No matter what kind of decorations you put out, make sure that anything your furbaby might chew on is out of their reach. Small pieces of Halloween decor, or parts and pieces of off larger pieces of decor, could lead to choking, obstruction, or perforation of the bowel if ingested. So, while you don't have to refrain from being festive and decorating for Halloween (or any holiday), you simply need to take your kitty or pup's safety into consideration when placing out all decor.
