Friendly Fill-Ins

Hello and happy Friday! We're ready for the Friendly Fill-Ins challenge. Are you? If you'd like to join in on the fun, please don't hesitate to do so! My co-host Ellen of 15andmeowing came up with the first two fill-in statements, and I came up with the second two.

1. My go-to place to purchase _________ is _________.

2. _________ immediately improves my mood.

3. I think _________ is really spooky.

4. I wish I had a magical potion for _________.

My answers are below in bold.

1. My go-to place to purchase cute cat toys is Target.
(I also really enjoy the cat toys my local pet store offers as well as many I find on Etsy, and the ones in the monthly CatLadyBox. That said, especially every holiday season, I always look forward to seeing what cat toys Target has new in stock. There's usually at least one toy that's so cute I have to get one for my kitties, and then also one for myself. What also spurred this answer are the cat scratcher houses that Target has, because those are adorable and my kitties love them.)

2. Time spent with my kitties and pup immediately improves my mood.
(Do I really need to explain this one?)

3. I think paranormal activity is really spooky.
(I could have capitalized my answer here, as the actual movie called Paranormal Activity is probably the scariest I've personally ever watched. Though I enjoy watching scary movies, I'm generally not all that creeped out by slasher films with serial killers and that sort of thing. But when it comes to paranormal activity, like demons and the like, that actually does freak me out. Which is why the movie Paranormal Activity truly gives me the chills.)

4. I wish I had a magical potion for time.
(I'm always on the lookout for ways to create more time in a day, and so that's what I'm getting at with this answer. If I could drink a magical potion that would add an extra hour or two in the day, or that would make time around me freeze for just awhile, that would be awesome.)

Are you ready for your Eddy fix? Since we're saving our newest Halloween photo shoots for next week, we're here to share some flashbacks today. In true Eddy style, they're of course a bit blurry.

That giant jack-o'-lantern lives in my bedroom. For these photos, I sat the pumpkin on my bed next to Eddy's favorite bed and her favorite basket full of blankets. She was not impressed.

Remember how we said these are a bit blurry? If you didn't believe us before, here you go.

Have a frightfully fantastic Friday, friends!

Flashback Doodle of the Day


Tip of the Day

Yesterday we mentioned keeping your kitty or pup in a safe area of the home, away from the door, in order to avoid any escapes out the front door during Halloween night festivities. Today, we're offering some additional methods you might be able to use to help keep a furbaby as safe, happy, and comfortable as possible on Halloween night. These tips are the most beneficial to furbabies who are scared of the doorbell, knocks at the door, and any other noises and happenings that Halloween might bring with it.

To begin, you can help make a nervous or uncertain furbaby feel more secure during the hustle and bustle of trick-or-treaters by closing windows and drawing blinds or curtains, to mask some of the sights and sounds of the spooky festivities. In addition, you can play music or turn on the TV or a movie to help further drown out sounds that might alarm a kitty or pup. Some furbabies might even be distracted by some treats, or by a play session with you or an interactive toy. In some cases, a cat or dog with higher levels of anxiety might benefit from the use of calming products like a pheromone spray or diffuser, or even a Thundershirt or similar makeshift item to make them feel secure. Or, some cats and dogs would simply do well to have access to a safe hiding place in a safe area of the home, where they can ride out Halloween night. The important thing is to consider your particular kitty or pup's personality and behaviors, and then determine what distractions or other techniques might best help them feel safe and secure on Halloween night.

I enjoyed all your answers. A potion for time would be nice. I saw that movie and it did scare me. Have you seen the show Evil? That is pretty creepy too. Eddy is a cutie. I like the drawing and your tips are always excellent. Have a nice weekend. XO

Eddy, Mudpie has the exact same bed! She doesn't have a basket full of blankies though...and she wants one now!

If anyone starts a petition to put extra hours in the day, i'm all for it!

Eddy looks comfy in her bed. We had a similar answer to #4 if you know what we mean. Extra hours would be good but extra days, weeks and years would be purrfect.
