Mancat Monday: Busting Ghosts and...Black Cats?

It's Mancat Monday. It's also the week before Halloween. And so, mancat Evan thought he'd show you what a good ghostbuster he is.

I guess Evan also takes down black cats? Don't worry, though, because he only does so with the imposter versions.

Evan thought he'd show you bits and pieces of his ghostbusting on Halloween itself. For today, how about all of the winning moves Evan used on the wannabe black cat?

That last shot may or may not be Evan doing a victory dance on his victim's body. 'Tis the season?

Happy Monday, friends!

Festive Flashback Doodles of the Day

I still haven't shared a number of my favorite flashback Halloween doodles yet this year. So, how about two of them today? Since it's Mancat Monday, starring orange boy Evan, how about two doodles also starring none other than orange kitties?

Starting tomorrow, my goal is to share a new Halloween doodle every day over the next week. We'll see how well I do with that with life really happening these days, but I really hope to meet my goal. Either way, though, we'll also be sharing a few more flashback Halloween doodles over the next week, even alongside new doodles, because sharing some of my favorite old Halloween doodles helps me feel spookily festive. Anyway. Enough with the rambling, yeah?

Halloween Tip of the Day

Today's Halloween tip is to know your local area's trick-or-treat details in order to be prepared, whether or not you are handing out candy or otherwise joining in on the festivities. Two of the important things to know are when trick-or-treat hours are, and what indicates whether trick-or-treaters should come to your door. Like last year, this year there may be some other special instructions to learn, thanks to pandemic life. It's important to know these Halloween festivity details so that you can have your pup or kitty home from a walk before traffic increases, for example, or to have your black cats and other furbabies safely inside before people begin filling the streets in search of tricks or treats. If you are handing out candy, it's good to know trick-or-treat hours so that you can have your kitty or pup tucked securely away from the door before the first trick-or-treaters arrive. In many areas, a house with its porch light on is one where trick-or-treaters can go for some loot. In the event that you're handing out candy, be sure to only have your porch light on when you're furbaby is in a safe area of the home, again away from the door. If you are not handing out candy, it's of course still important to know the hours and other details of Halloween festivities in your area. This will ensure that you can have your porch light off at the correct hours, in order to avoid knocks at the door or the doorbell ringing and scaring your furbaby needlessly. It's always good to be informed of the details of anything that might affect your furbaby, and that includes Halloween night festivities.

No danger from ersatz black cats when Evan is around!

Black and orange cats go together well at this time of year.
