The Black (and White) Cat who tried to be a Red Bunny

AH, yes!  There are many beliefs and stories and myths about black cats.   Halloween is particularly a unsettled time for our pets, particularly for those little black cats that some of our friends and neighbours have living in their homes...

Walter is just one of many cats living in nice cosy homes, but Walter has a somewhat strange owner...

Walter's "Mom" makes up stories...

Walter's "Mom" makes things with needle and thread and fabric or with balls of yarn that with a bit of "know-how" often turns into something useful, but sometimes becomes a bit of fantasy...

Halloween is upon us.


Children dress up as people and creatures and things that they usually are not for Halloween evening and head out to collect sweet treats...

Now, It really isn't a good idea for the family black cat to go out Yowling at neighbourhood doors or even to walk around the streets or slink behind trees and bushes and burnt out lamp posts on Halloween night - their intentions could be misinterpreted..
Some people still believe that black cats and even black dogs are EVIL and are BAD LUCK...

does that look like a growl?  it is not, it just happens to be mid-sneeze!

Really, they are not.  They are just family pets that happen to have a black coat on....   Black is slimming, don't you know!  Models and Movie stars are known to put on a black dress now and then...


Artists draw a black cat against a full moon, but its not really a scary image, it is actually a scared image!  The instant you see a black cat all fluffed up it is scooted away to hide!


So, Walter who recently was told about these and some of the other strange beliefs that seem to have followed black cats through history, hopefully, knows not to go out into the night on any night, especially on Halloween night!

But.

Walter is a very fun cat, and quite accommodating when his "Mom" gets a strange idea...  Refer back to that first photo.... Doesn't that kitty foot, look alot like a LUCKY RABBIT FOOT?  Mind you if you are carrying a LUCKY RABBIT FOOT on your key chain, Walter would perhaps suggest that the rabbit who's foot that is, is not so lucky him or herself!!

Now, Just for Fun.  And with alot,  I repeat ALOT of co-operation from a very special cat named WALTER (who by the way, seems to not be peeing in corners since his litter box was moved to a more 'socially' acceptable spot) allowed his crazy and somewhat creative "Mom" to dress him up as a Red Bunny for Halloween, so that no one would mistake him for an unlucky BLACK CAT...


Just to remind you, that is a kitty tail, not that little puff ball that is at the back end of a bunny...


Oh, oh, what the HALLOWEEN is that?


Is this really necessary?



She thinks this is funny!  Yeah, she is still laughing!!


REALLY!


HO HUM!  This has got to end sometime!  Doesn't it?

Well, Happy Halloween Everybody!

And remember keep your pets indoors or close to you and on a leash if you are out and about tonight.   The noises and the excitement out there is probably more scary to your pets than they are scary to you...
