Mancat Monday

I tried to stage another photo shoot with Evan and his ghostly archenemy. It was actually quite uneventful.

For anyone who might not know or remember, Evan is hind limb paralyzed. That might help the second picture above make a bit more sense.

Happy Monday, everyone!

Doodle of the Day

One of my favorite Halloween tales is "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow". That being said, wouldn't the story of the Headless Horseman be even cooler if he had a cat-o'-lantern for a head?

Tip of the Day

We're just in the early stages of our October-long Halloween tips. Today, how about we get one of the most common Halloween tips out of the way? That's right, today we're talking about candy. The long and short of it is that you should never leave candy sitting out where your furbaby can find it and help themselves. Whether it be candy you're saving for yourself, or the candy dish you've prepared for those trick-or-treaters, always keep it well hidden from the kitties and pups.

As you all certainly know, chocolate can very toxic to our furbabies. Another candy danger includes artificial sweeteners like xylitol, which can be found in sugar-free candy, among other foods and goods. This candy discussion can also include raisins, and the double whammy that is chocolate-covered raisins. After all, raisins are toxic to kitties and pups just like chocolate is. To be on the safe side, no matter what kind of candy you're handing out this Halloween or have around the house, keep it hidden away from curious paws and maws.

In the event that your furbaby finds the candy, know the potential signs of toxicity. These can vary, and might include vomiting, diarrhea, lethargy, or even neurological symptoms. Should you think or know that your furbaby has gotten into your candy stash, or should you observe any signs of toxicity, do not hesitate to seek veterinary assistance. It also does not hurt to have on hand a poison control number, such as the ASPCA at 1-888-426-4435.

We consider each of our cats as 'eye-candy', and we ooh and ahh over them every day!

Evan is a cutie. That ghost likes to visit all your furbabies. I like the drawing as I am a fan of that story too. Excellent tips too.

Oh Evan! We love you and your ghost! Mom pulled out the same ghostie at our house for photos! She hasn't made us take them yet though

Why do i get the feeling the second photo gives us a good idea of what Evan thinks of that ghost?
