I thought I would do a Catoween Revisited for today.  This post was from 2014 and there’s my beloved Shakespeare.  Now I see how much bigger he was then Steinbeck is.  However, Steinbeck has tons of Shakespeare’s personality.  Happy Catoween All!!!gr_ith117

It’s Catoween Day and I’m going to go trick or treating for catnip, salmon, crinkly toys and jingle bells.  I don’t like all those silly costumes so I’m just going to wear my crown.

Hey wait a minute!!!!  I was planning on going as a king tonight, too.  Shakespeare, did you get into my supply of crowns again?

Mom used me for  Caturday Art today.  I was calmly sitting in the doorway watching Hemingway wander around on the deck.  Suddenly there was a bright flash and I heard Mom saying, “Oh Steinbeck, you kept your eyes mostly open.  Good boy!”

Then she started playing around with it and ended up with this!

I think I look kind of spooky but that fits for Halloween.  MOL!

Have a great weekend!

Last year I was just a little kitten and didn’t really understand why all those little humans came knocking at our door, asking for candy.  I even wondered if kitties went door to door asking for catnip.

You were pretty confused……in fact, you still are.

No, I’m a big kitty now and I know lots of stuff so I’ll be brave and maybe even look out the window.

I’ll meet you under the bed.  I don’t think you’ll be able to look out the window.

You mean we’re both going to be scared?

Well, there will be more noise than usual and Mom will constantly be going to the door.  I don’t think we’ll be able to nap comfortably.

I sure hope Mom doesn’t forget to give us our treats!

Readers, we had Mom help us with a couple of Halloween pictures for you to enjoy.

Steinbeck Fangs

If you look carefully, you can see my fangs!

Hemingway Halloween

I went for a calmer, more mosaic look this year.

HAPPY HALLOWEEN

Hey……Halloween must be for US!  Look at the colors……..orange and black…….just like us!!

Mom said today is Halloween.

She told us the little humans go out dressed as all sorts of things….

….including cats!

Then they go to houses and say, “Trick or treat” and the grown-up humans give them candy.

If we dress up and say, “Trick or Treat, can we get catnip treats????

HAPPY HALLOWEEN, EVERYONE!!!

Fellow bloggers….we haven’t been very good at writing lately and it’s Mom’s fault.

Hemingway, if Mom reads this she’s going to get mad.

I don’t care.  We’ve been asking her all sorts of questions lately and she’s just ignoring us.

Well, I do agree with that.  We’re just trying to learn things and she won’t tell us. She keeps saying something about being busy.

For one thing, remember that night when all the little humans kept coming to the door asking for candy?

Oh yeah……why do they do that?  I saw some pictures on the computer of cats dressed up in funny clothes.  Why do the humans think they should dress us cats up like funny humans?

Well, why do the humans dress up like kitties and other fur people?  Is it just this one day that they do it?  I think we should make some changes to this tradition of theirs.  So, listen up humans.  We kitties are going to bring about some changes.  This Halloween thing is going to be called “Catnip Treat Night” and the humans will take us kitties to houses in our neighborhoods.  We’ll have special little bags and the humans can put catnip and treats in them for us.

That sounds WONDERFUL. We should probably have this celebration at least four times a year.

Next problem.  What happened to the clocks?   I thought Mom was just playing a trick on us the other night but it seems all the clocks had the same problem.

Now Mom makes us wait an extra hour for supper and treats.  My tummy knows when it’s time to eat and it’s not an hour later.

Why did the clocks change?

Boys……….do you want some tuna water?

Oh boy......we love tuna water!

Oh boy……we love tuna water!

Mom.......I told you not to take my picture when I have tuna water on my face!

Mom…….I told you not to take my picture when I have tuna water on my face!

I think Hemingway splashed on me.

I think Hemingway splashed on me.

Mom…….forget about all of our questions for now.  We’re full and we’re going to take a nap.

Thanks, Mom!   We’re satisfied for now, but you know we’re going to have more questions so be prepared.

Mom……….you have to get us costumes right away!!!

Shakespeare what are you yelling about?

I need a costume and I need it now.  You should get one, too.

Why would I want to do that?

Don’t you know what tomorrow is?

It’s Wednesday and that means Mom goes to choir practice.

Noooooooooooooo!  I mean yesssssssssss……….she does go to choir practice……but it’s Halloween.

So?

I’ve been looking up Halloween on the internet and it’s when kids dress up in costumes and go door to door saying, “Trick or treat.”  Then the humans give them candy as treats.

In the first place, Mom won’t let us out of our own back yard so there will be no walking around the neighborhood.  In the second place whatever we try to say, humans aren’t going to understand us.  Only Mom understands us ‘cuz she knows us so well.  In the third place you know perfectly well that Mom won’t let us eat candy.

Well aren’t you the bubble-burster.

I’m just giving you the real facts.

Maybe Mom can carry us around to some of the houses and maybe some of the humans living there can hand out other treats, like catnip.

Don’t think it’s going to happen.  Besides, would you really allow yourself to be dressed up in a costume?

Now that you mention it, no way!!!!  Can I ask our readers something?

I don’t think I can stop you so go ahead.

Dear readers, if your little humans come home with catnip or Whisker Lickin’s, can you send them to us.  We know the little humans wouldn’t like those treats and we LOVE them!

HAPPY HALLOWEEN!

We won a contest!!!

And our friends Nibbles, Nutty, Buddy and Basil decorated us for Halloween!!

We just can’t thank you enough.  Mom thinks sometimes we spend too much time at the computer but look what happened……

We won!!!!

This is the picture of Buddy and we had to write a caption.

We put our kitty brains together and came up with:  “Do these orange earrings make me look fat???”

Now we think Mom needs to help us celebrate.

We noticed the treat drawer is getting a little low.  Don’t make us get crabby on you, Mom.

Thanks again, Nibbles, Nutty, Buddy and Basil.

See how much fun we fur people can have together?  Humans should learn from us.
