Tonks Tuesday: The Haunting Continues

Tonks wants to know if any of you have had the same problem she recently experienced. She fell asleep the other day, and when she woke up, an uninvited someone was right there next to her.

Poor Tonks is being haunted yet again.

The calico has something she wants to admit, though. You see, she actually kind of likes her ghostly invader.

Yikes. Keep it PG, Tonks. Who's haunting whom?

Happy Tuesday, friends!

Halloween Doodle of the Day

Tip of the Day

We've been giving all sorts of tips related to pet safety during trick-or-treating and other Halloween festivities. And, today, we have yet another tip related to that. Then again, it is almost Halloween, so perhaps it's permitted.

Today's tip is to help your kitty or pup get rid of some extra energy by engaging them in some form of activity before any Halloween festivities begin. This way, your furbaby would have less pent up energy and therefore less anxiety or frustration while they are tucked away somewhere safe while you hand out candy or celebrate this spooky holiday in another way. Helping your kitty or pup use up that extra energy of theirs could involve playing a game such as fetch with them, or directing their attention to interactive toys. If your fubaby is one who needs or likes walks, then you can also drain and prevent pent up energy by taking them for a walk prior to trick-or-treat hours. This would again enable them to release some of their energy before being secured in their safe room while you hand out candy. All in all, pent up energy can lead to issues such as anxiety or frustration in a cat or dog. This is why it might be a good idea to take your kitty or pup for a stroll, or to play with them in the house, prior to locking them up somewhere safe and away from the door on Halloween night.

Tonks is a cutie. That ghost reminds me- have you seen the tv show Ghosts ? It is really good. I love your drawing too and your tips are great.

It’s hard to be scared of a ghost with a permanent smile on its face.

It looks like many of your crew are mellowing to this little haunter.
