There are twice as many reasons to celebrate cats today! Not only is today the weekly Caturday Art blog hop, but it’s also National Cat Day here in the US! Usually on Caturday I show off some digital art of Sadie, ignoring the fact that she’s a dog. But this week I felt we really needed to embrace the spirit of cats. So in honor of National Cat Day, Sadie dressed up in her black cat Halloween costume to pose for these portraits!
Arachnophilia means the love of spiders. Sadie and I absolutely, positively do NOT love spiders. (Sadie barks helpfully while I run around the house trying to catch and release the eight legged home invaders.) But we are both totally in love with Sadie’s Halloween spider toy! I’m not sure how something so icky in real life can be so cute as a stuffed animal! Maybe it’s because the toy only has six legs and real spiders have eight? Whatever the reason, Sadie enjoys playing with this spider almost as much as I love using the spider as a Halloween decoration. Isn’t it great when you can claim that the dog toys lying around the house are actually seasonal decorations?
