Spooky Tales With Tonks

Yesterday, Evan revealed that he's moonlighting as a reading mentor. That of course means he's giving book assignments to his furry siblings.


Evan's going for festive reads, of course. As you can see there, Tonks has been assigned Washington Irving's "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow".


Does Tonks looked thrilled or what? Honestly, this here human quite enjoys reading "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow". I wonder if I can convince this calico that it's a purrfect tale to read this time of year. Next week, Tonks will give you her thoughts on this spooky story.

Happy reading to all of our bookworm friends out there!

Tip of the Day

We've made it to day 13 of our 31 Halloween tips. Today's tip is likely the last in our discussion on pumpkins, and it's also more than likely an obvious one. Nevertheless, we're here to remind you to take precautions and to keep your furbaby safe if you get festive by carving a jack-o'-lantern. Carving a pumpkin means pulling out knives or other sharp objects, which can of course be a danger to your kitty or pup. Do not leave any knives sitting where your furbaby might walk or jump, and certainly don't leave knives unattended. If need be, activities such as pumpkin carving can be, and perhaps should be, done in an area where your furbaby does not have access. This would allow for the prevention of any accidents. Also think about after you've carved the pumpkin, and do not leave the knives sitting dangerously in the sink or elsewhere. We've also already discussed safety around candles in jack-o'-lanterns, as flames are of course another danger. All in all, if you are carving pumpkins or partaking in other similar Halloween festivities, always be aware of your furbaby's proximity and safety.

The Hubby often leaves items in the kitchen with the handles over the edge, to make them easier for him to grab them. However, Da Boyz find such 'overhangs' more than tempting!
This is why you see a screen door on our kitchen entrance; it's best to keep them OUT of the kitchen when 1) no one is in there, and 2) when food prep is happening.
Actually, 3) anytime Manny feels it's his turn to jump onto the counters...
