Caturday Art

Earlier this week, we shared a certain flashback doodle that involved a scarecrow with a jack-o'-lantern for a head, and a cat with a cat-o'-lantern for a head. That got me in the mood to draw something similar, and so that's what we have for you today.


And that's that, I guess. Of course, this weird and wacky doodle is our contribution to Athena's Caturday Art Blog Hop.


Happy Caturday, friends!

Halloween Tip of the Day

We're 19 days in, and our Halloween tips are still going. After all, we have 31 of them to get through! And, indeed, we have another Halloween-inspired tip for you today.

Yesterday, we mentioned the importance of keeping black cats, and of course all furbabies, indoors on Halloween to prevent them from becoming victims of tricks and pranks. Today's tip is similar, and it is to avoid going on a walk with your dog, or even your kitty, during trick-or-treat hours. This is for a number of reasons, including the obvious one that foot traffic, and even potentially car traffic, will be increased during trick-or-treat hours. This is something that could pose a risk especially for skittish dogs or cats, as they might become frightened of the Halloween hustle and bustle. What's more, not only will more people be out and about on Halloween night, making extra traffic and noise, but many of them will be dressed in strange and potentially frightening costumes. These factors could lead a nervous dog or cat to panic, and to potentially get loose and lost. Of course, increased traffic could also lead to accidents and injuries, such as if a nervous or excited dog or cat gets loose and makes their way into the street. All in all, it is important to always take into consideration your furbaby's safety, which might very well mean house arrest during those trick-or-treat hours on Halloween night.

We don't really get many trick-or-treaters where we live. That's good because both cats usually run towards the door or freak out whenever someone knocks on it.

We do not hand out candy for Halloween, so our inside kitties are safe. The 'O' Cats know to say hidden near any people, but I worry about stupid people grabbing friendly cats and doing harm.
