Wishing you all a fantastic day!

Halloween Doodle of the Day

Yesterday I shared a wacky doodle of a feline version of the character Michael Myers from the movie Halloween. I felt compelled to do one more weird little doodle in honor of some famous Halloween horror movies, specifically A Nightmare on Elm Street and Friday the 13th. So, here are Freddy Krueger and Jason Voorhees in all their feline glory.

Again, though, don't worry. Unlike their famous movie inspiration, these two kitties are not out for blood. They're simply out for candy on Halloween night.

Our Halloween Tip of the Day

Today's Halloween tip relates to Halloween parties or other festivities of that nature. There are a number of potential dangers that such gatherings can pose. First, parties mean that guests are arriving, which means the door will be a busy place. When guests are arriving, keep your kitty or pup away from the door, such as by secluding them to a safe area away from the door, so that there is no chance of them escaping the house. Sometimes it might also be best to keep your furbaby secluded to a safe area during the duration of Halloween or other similar party, for their continued safety. There will be extra foot traffic in the house when there are guests, which could potentially lead to your furbaby getting stepped on or otherwise injured.

In addition, there could be toxic foods present at a Halloween party, such as alcohol or chocolate. If your furbaby steals a taste of such foods, or if unwitting guests feed your kitty or pup treats of chocolate or other foods, there could be dangerous side effects. There is a variety of dangers to your cat or dog that can be present at festivities. Therefore, always do what you must to ensure your furbaby's safety during Halloween or other parties. Even if your kitty or pup is friendly and enjoys the company of others, there are still many dangers for a kitty or pup when gatherings are hosted at their home. If there is any doubt for their safety, or simply to prevent any accidental dangers, keep your kitty or pup confined to a safe area of the home during festive gatherings.

You are such a cutie Evan. Fun drawing too. And excellent tips. Whenever we have a gathering, all kitties are locked in the bedrooms.

I just finished a book, where the same characters that you've featured in your doodle, came off of the screen and ran riot in Chicago. It took a wizard, with a demon's help, to figure out how to get those monsters back into their films. Good stuff!
