Reading With Astrid

If you visited us yesterday or Monday, you might remember that mancat Evan is teaching all sorts of reading lessons these days. He's trying to get others into some of the classics that are great reads during this spooky season. In doing so, Evan gave pup Astrid the same reading assignment that he gave Tonks yesterday.

That's right, Astrid has also been instructed to read Washington Irving's "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow". How excited do you think this pup is about that? Really excited? Mildly excited? Or is she downright dreading the read? She'll let you know her final thoughts next week.

Happy Wednesday, friends!


Doodle of the Day

Our newest series of Halloween doodles is a bit on the witchy side. Of course, witches always need a cat to make sure they cast all their spells and bubble all their potions correctly.


Tip of the Day

Today's tip is about none other than costumes. As you might see upon visiting a pet store this time of year, Halloween costumes are sometimes just as popular for kitties and pups as they are for children of the human sort. That being said, though, it is best to only put and keep a costume on a furbaby who tolerates and enjoys it. Some cats and dogs simply do not like wearing costumes or other clothing items, and those such furbabies should not be forced to wear a costume for Halloween, or any time of the year. If you do try a costume on your kitty or pup, watch for signs of stress, such as trying to remove the costume or restlessness. If you do notice any signs that your furbaby is not enjoying a costume you've chosen for them, remove it and simply let them don their birthday suit this Halloween.

Astrid looks over the moon, or is it over the hollow?

I guess we need to call him Professor Evan. :) Astrid does not look thrilled. I love the drawing. Great tips too. Most of my cats are OK with costumes, but the ones that aren't will have a simple hat instead.

Astrid you don't look very excited! Maybe ask your mom about getting it on audio book instead?

Four of us love costumes!
