The Cat Decorators

The cats in our neighborhood are very proud of their Halloween decorating this year. And they have agreed to let me photograph their creations! So, let's start with a cat a few blocks away who has chosen the pirate look!

                               Next, this cat has chosen the simplicity of just two pumpkins.

This cat has gone all out by lining all the steps with pumpkins! He asked me to report that he achieved his look, but his paws are quite sore.

                           This cat has chosen a lighted wreath in hopes that it will draw some moths.

This black cat has kept a few large ferns around, in hopes of jumping out of them at night to scare the children. Trick-Or-Meow!

This cat proudly shows his beautiful flag.

This kitty sharpened his claws on a piece of felt, and made this lady pumpkin. 

This cat got very elaborate and made a large piece or artwork!

In a last minute surprise, a few dogs thought they would try some decorating. This turned out badly, and ruined the whole fall theme. This German Shepherd was not in a good mood, and just scattered some pumpkins around.

And the next two dogs were rather vain, and put out flags of their own photos instead of fall themes, thus ruining the flow of the whole neighborhood.

HI Ginny, The 'cats' and 'dogs' all did a great job decorating for Halloween. It's hard to believe that November is almost here.

We've been on vacation in Maggie Valley. Had a great week. I published a cute blog today from our vacation in Cataloochee this past week. Check it out if you haven't yet.
Hugs,
Betsy

I need new cats. My cats have put out NOTHING for Halloween this year. I'm so mad now. All the other cats did such a nice job too.

So cute!! That black cat is slinking off to go hide so he can pounce on some unsuspecting passerby! That first cat looks like he's all decked out in Halloween colors himself. This is such a CUTE post!

P.S. I would be happy to take that GSD and help him become a sweet, lovable doggie. Still miss my shepherd something terrible.

Also, wanted to say that I love your accompanying Scripture.
