Woof Woof Wednesday

Despite the fact that pup Astrid often enjoys posing as a pouty puppy, this girl is more than capable of plastering a ginormous smile on her face.

Though she doesn't often showcase it when a camera is shoved in her face, that smile is actually on Astrid's face more often than not.

Before ending this photo shoot, Astrid decided to channel her kitty sister Eddy and snap some blurry bloopers.

Then again, those are nothing compared to the doozies that are Eddy's blooper shots.

Have a happy Wednesday, friends!

Halloween Doodle of the Day

Halloween Tip of the Day

As we mentioned yesterday, we're dedicating October to tips all about Halloween. We already discussed keeping wreaths, garland, and other similar Halloween decor either pet-friendly or out of your furbaby's reach. Today, we're expanding on this with a tip that we've covered in a variety of ways in past tips. We're talking, yet again, about candles. This time of year, candles often become more popular because of cool weather, and because of the delicious scents often associated with this season of autumn. What's more, candles often come into play when we carve jack-o'-lanterns. Jack-o'-lanterns can pose just as much of a risk as open candle flames. Curious paws or faces, or even wagging tails, could be burned by candles out in the open or those in a pumpkin. Dangerous and destructive fire could also result if a kitty or pup knocks over a candle, or a jack-o'-lantern containing a candle.

For the above reasons and more, light open candles or those in jack-o'-lanterns only if they are safely out of the reach of your furbaby, even if that means lighting them in a room not accessible to your kitty or pup. It is also of course best that candles or jack-o'-lanterns be left lit only if you are available to monitor the situation. If you are not able to keep an eye on a candle, jack-o'-lantern, and nearby furbabies, then do not leave any flames lit.

Candles and jack-o'-lanterns can make for very festive decor. However, flames can of course pose a risk to your furbaby, and also to your home in general. Therefore, always put the safety of your furbaby and everyone else in the home first when it comes to fiery festivities this time of year. Also, of course, be aware of the safety of wildlife if you light jack-o'-lanterns outdoors.

Great shots of Astrid! I love the drawing. You did a nice job on the mummies, all those strips of cloth must have been tough to draw. I only use battery operated candles in jack o'lanterns.

I love the tombstone with 'for rent' on it! LOL!
The only time we use candles around Eastside Cats, is when we've got a proper glass container, so no kitty can investigate too closely! The Hubby cannot abide the smell of a burning candle anyhow, but sometimes we need to do some odor-control...LOL!
