Happy Howl-O-Ween!

It was a wild and wooly night!  Was that the opening line for any book?  Perhaps it should have been and it certainly was last night with Sandy.  But, we are here and happy to say Happy Howl-o-ween to all our furriends!

Sandy visited, and it wasn't so bad.  We lost lekstricity for about 18 hours, so by the derecho standards, Sandy was a kitten!  But, we'll tell that story tomorrow cause today is Howl-o-ween, and Mica Minnie Moo's birthday.   Thank Cod, we didn't miss Howl-O-Ween.  We haven't had much time to prepare, but here we go!

 If door bell ringing, scary pumpkin faces
and sticky little beans running around at night
isn't bad enough,
I have to dress up too???

 I hate my life,
I hate my life,
I hate my life.

 And hanging a blue sheet behind me doesn't 
make it look like I'm at sea on a pirate ship!

Is it over yet?

No one could face dressing the rest of the kitties, so the mom did some quick avatars of them instead.

 Zombie Julie
 Wildcat Moo
 Cutie Oui Oui
Bad Boy Carl
(Yes, he is grounded 
after his escapade Down Under with Gracie.)

Finally, Mica Minnie Moo wanted everyone to have a piece of birthday cake.  The one who finds the maggot wins a special prize.  Just kidding!

MMM's a little shy and skittish, so no big fanfare for her.  Everyone enjoy your Howl-O-Ween and stay safe!  We can't wait to see everyone's Howl-O-Ween posts.  Its great to be back.  Purrs!

Hi! We love your costume, but sure are glad our Mumsy finally figured out how to make the graphic-cut-and-paste-them-on thing work so we escaped actual costumes ;-) That cake is super good looking. And thank you, although we didn't get no maggot. And, Happy Birthday, MMM. We think you are so cute too.

The Island Cats said...

Yay! We're so glad you all are okay! Happy Halloween! ]We lucked out this year and weren't forced into costumes. Happy Birthday, MMM!

Happy birthday, Mica Minnie Moo! I'm glad you got through the storm with only 18 hours without electricity. Oui Oui, your costume brought on a spell of PTSD!

Sweet Purrfections said...

Happy Halloween.

We're happy you survived Sandy.

Gigi said...

Poor Oui Oui. The nice one always pays the price, sorry sweetie.

Hey--thanks for telling us about photoscape! The Human says we'll download it this weekend and play around with it. I suppose it won't improve her storytelling or make her a better photographer though, huh? Ah well, we can't have everything!

Happy Halloween, Kitties and Peeps!

CCL Wendy said...

Poor Oui Oui! You deserve a purple heart for all that torture you've been through. It's obvious that you were NOT a willing PURRticipant. You did very well under the circumstances -- being a hostage and all.

And Happy Birthday to Mica Moo! She makes a great wildcat. I love what you did with the avatars. Funny, it never occurred to me to do that. I've been painting clothes on mine.

We're glad you survived Sandy with minimum discomfort. Now you just have to get through the rest of Halloween!

Have a good one, guys!

We're glad you are all safe (and that you have electricity)! Oh, and that you didn't miss Halloween! :)

Oui Oui, you sure are a good sport, letting the mom and the girl dress you up like that.

Happy birthday to MMM, and Happy Halloween to all!
