There are no kitties here named Twinky. There is a Tonks as well as a Winky, though, and sometimes this confused human fumbles her words and calls one or both of them Twinky. Today's post stars both Tonks and Winky, so why not call the post Twinky Tuesday?
Let's start with Tonks. Last week, this sassy little calico gave her book review of Washington Irving's "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow". She deemed it too scary and lacking cats, and so she quite literally threw it on the floor. She also punished the book by chewing on it. We didn't share that fact last week, but we will now.
Now, where does Winky come in on this post? On my chaotically decorated desk. I've shown this desk before, and it's something else. It probably looks like a downright nightmare to some of you, but I love having it filled with decor and all sorts of bits and bobs that get my creative juices flowing. It's my art and writing desk, so that might explain that, or it might not.
Believe it or not, this desk looks a lot like this all year round. The skeleton and some of the other decor will get festive with some Santa hats and scarves come Christmastime. Oh, and yes, house panther Winky is in there. Can you spot her? Forget Where's Waldo? Let's play Where's Winky?
There she is! She's posing with my Headless Horseman statue that my sister recently got me. It actually arrived in the mail with the pumpkin head broken, but I didn't mind. After all, in "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow" story, the pumpkin head ends up shattered. So, we glued it back together and called it festive.
Happy Tuesday, friends!
Do you want to give your furbaby an extra fun treat for Halloween? We're thinking most of you already know that pet stores typically offer festive toy options around the holidays, including Halloween. Nevertheless, we're reminding you to consider looking for the pet store's festive holiday section, or for festive options in the general toy aisle. If necessary and feasible, you can even use such festive new toys to help distract a furbaby who gets anxious or excited by the sounds and overall hustle and bustle of Halloween night festivities, such as trick-or-treaters visiting the house. Of course, if you are handing out candy, festive new toys should be given in a safe area of the home, away from the door. And, yet another caveat is to always check new toys for any potentially dangerous parts and pieces. You know your kitty or pup best, so when picking out new festive toys for them, always keep in mind their tendencies to chew on or eat certain toys. It's fun to be festive, but it's also very important to be safe.
