Cat with ash marking. The dog head is to remind him of death.
Like the holy cards of St. Francis shown with a skull.
This cat is very strict.
Ash Wednesday is not a holy day of obligation, so the reception of ashes for pets is optional - very devout cats usually do something however.
Although they do not have to fast - they should abstain from meat and content themselves with fish.
No catnip today either, hon.
