Selfies with a Spook

We're not too far from Halloween. Obviously, that means all sorts of ghosts and ghoulies are crawling out of the woodwork.

Eddy can see ghosts. Well, she can smell them at the very least.

Eddy and her ghostly photobomber are of course participating in the Sunday Selfies blog hop, hosted by the Kitties Blue over at The Cat on My Head.

Have a spooktacular Sunday, friends!

P.S. Tomorrow we'll be having a fun little Halloween giveaway on our blog. To see what we have in store, be sure to visit us tomorrow!

Our Doodle of the Day:

Today we're sharing one more Halloween bookmark I doodled up for a recent craft fair.

And, just as with the other bookmarks we shared, online I found a corny yet fun little saying to go with this one.

Our Tip of the Day:

Today's Halloween tip is one we're sure you all know, and it's to practice proper door safety. This is of course most relevant if you are handing out candy on Halloween night, or if you are hosting a Halloween party with a number of arriving guests. Knocks on the door, the doorbell, children or adults in strange costumes, and all of the hustle and bustle of Halloween can scare some furbabies. On the other hand, some cats or dogs might enjoy guests, and so they might be attracted to the door on Halloween. Either way, if you have increased traffic at the door on Halloween, there is always the chance that your kitty or pup could escape if proper precautions are not taken. This is why it is important to practice proper door safety, so that you can avoid escapes.

There are of course a number of options for keeping a cat or dog from escaping out a busy door on Halloween. First, you can set up a safe room for your cat or dog and keep them in there during the Halloween festivities, so that they have no ability to escape from the house when people show up at the front door. Depending on how your house is set up and how determined your kitty or pup is to reach the door, you can also put up baby gates or pet gates to keep a cat or dog in an area of the house away from the door. If your furbaby is leash trained, and as long as the leash is securely held, your kitty or pup can also be kept safe in the house by attaching them to their leash, with of course someone holding said leash. You best know your furbaby as well as the setup of your home, so use whatever method is the safest, most surefire way of keeping your kitty or pup from escaping out a busy door on nights like Halloween.

Aww, Eddy has such a lovely inquisitive look. Little ghost is being a bit cheeky though with the tongue MOL or do you think Eddy's whiskers are tickling it? MOL

Very cute selfie :) The bookmark is adorable too. I can't wait to see what the giveaway is for, I am sure it will be fun. Great tips too.

A very spooktacular selfie, and i am batty for books, too.

The best door safety is your suggestion exactly, to put the animals in another room and shut that door and leave it that way until trick or treat is over.

Cathy Keisha said...

Looking good, Eddy. Can't say the same about your friend. Nicky used to be terrified of trick and treat. Apparently they had an extra loud doorbell.

You are rocking the bookmarks!
Da Boyz aren't door dashers, but they tend to linger a bit too closely for our piece of mind. The Hubby has placed a huge bag of salt beside the door, so when it swings open, the bag acts like a blocker for the cats.
