Thoughts from Tonks

Does anyone remember when Tonks read The Legend of Sleepy Hollow with me last year?

And do you remember the review she gave of it?

I guess that got her point across. This here human has to disagree, though, because I quite enjoy this book. Has anyone else read The Legend of Sleepy Hollow? Do you agree with Tonks's review of it?

Happy Tuesday, friends!

Tip of the Day

We're 19 days in, and our Halloween tips are still going. After all, we have 31 of them to get through! And, indeed, we have another Halloween-inspired tip for you today.

Yesterday, we mentioned the importance of keeping black cats, and of course all furbabies, indoors on Halloween to prevent them from becoming victims of tricks and pranks. Today's tip is similar, and it is to avoid going on a walk with your dog, or even your kitty, during trick-or-treat hours. This is for a number of reasons, including the obvious one that foot traffic, and even potentially car traffic, will be increased during trick-or-treat hours. This is something that could pose a risk especially for skittish dogs or cats, as they might become frightened of the Halloween hustle and bustle. What's more, not only will more people be out and about on Halloween night, making extra traffic and noise, but many of them will be dressed in strange and potentially frightening costumes. These factors could lead a nervous dog or cat to panic, and to potentially get loose and lost. Of course, increased traffic could also lead to accidents and injuries, such as if a nervous or excited dog or cat gets loose and makes their way into the street. All in all, it is important to always take into consideration your furbaby's safety, which might very well mean house arrest during those trick-or-treat hours on Halloween night.

Whether Tonks liked the book or not, pushing stuff off to fall to the ground always makes a kitty happy!

Tonks is too funny. I never read the book, but I have seen the film and tv show. :) I can't see the drawing today, it is just all white- maybe it is a ghost in a snowstorm. :) Excellent tips.

Sorry Tonks, I love that book!

It's a good book, for sure. But obviously not Tonks' cup of catnip tea!

Tonks is being a bit tough on Mr. Irving, if you ask me.
