A Haunted Tonks Tuesday

I tried to get Tonks to pose with the ghostly buddy that floats around our house. Instead of posing with him, though, she spent the entire photo shoot sniffing him and up down.



Does he smell nice, Tonks? What kind of cologne do ghosts use?

Have a terrific Tuesday!

Flashback Doodle of the Day

We've been sharing some doodles inspired by the Halloween tale "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow", and yesterday I made a comment on how I think the spooky story would be even better if the Headless Horseman had a cat-o'-lantern for a head. In honor of that, today's flashback doodle is a good ol' cat-o'-lantern pileup that I scribbled up last year. 


Speaking of the Headless Horseman and cat-o'-lanterns, tomorrow's doodle is heavily inspired by that thought. It's also my favorite doodle in my new Sleepy Hollow series of doodles. But, that's for tomorrow. Feel free to drop by tomorrow if you'd like to see a Headless Horseman and cat-o'-lantern mashup.

Tip of the Day

Yesterday's Halloween tip was the obvious recommendation to keep candy away from your furbaby, since chocolate and other such goodies are indeed toxic to kitties and pups. Today, we're going a tad bit further and reminding you that even the inedible parts and pieces of candy can pose a risk to our furbabies. We're referring to candy wrappers, sucker sticks, and other candy-related bits and bobs. These remnants of a scrumptious piece of candy can smell and taste good to a pup or kitty, and might therefore end up in their mouth. If ingested, wrappers, sucker sticks, and the like could result in gastrointestinal distress or more serious bowel obstruction or perforation. So, needless to say, don't only keep candy out of your furbaby's reach, but also wrappers and other leftovers after the candy itself is gone. Put any trash left behind by candy in a secure trash can where your kitty or pup cannot get to it, in order to keep your furbaby happy and healthy.

Da Boyz will investigate every piece of something that drops to the floor, so we are careful to pick up twist ties, pieces of plastic (that the humans can barely see), and any other flotsam and jetsam that winds up floating downward.

I wanna know what cologne they use too, Tonks! (One of the catnip toys in this month's CatLadyBox is a cat pumpkin head!)
