There was a time when Tabs would have darted down the stairs, leaping over three or four of them at a time, the instant he heard me call, “Tabby! It’s time for your Halloween photo shoot (and the treats and lurvies that come with it)!!”
But he’s a mature tabby now. He walks down the stairs more often than he runs, but I think Halloween is still probably his favorite holiday…
Oh, wait! I forgot about Thanksgiving, so it would be Thanksgiving first (you know, ’cause of the turkey), and Halloween second.
He loves, Christmas, too, but he doesn’t like winter because it’s cold outside, so we don’t go for as many walks.
This year for Halloween he’s wearing his very stylish King of Hearts cat costume, which, amazingly enough, still fits! I thought it might be a little snug for him, but it’s not.
If Tabs could really go trick-or-treating, it’s easy to know what he’d like to get in terms of treats and snacks — turkey (including gravy), tuna, bacon and Oven Roasted Chicken Feline Greenies. Together, they’re the keys to his heart.
And to think, for all these years, it never occurred to me to let him try bacon, but one morning a couple months ago I just randomly put a small piece in his bowl.
He sniffed at it insensely for a minute…then picked it up in his mouth and bolted out of the room! I’d never seen him do anything like that before, but he was so completely and utterly blown away by it. THAT’s how much he likes bacon, LOL! He had to hide it for a rainy day.
What are you and your feline friends doing for Halloween this year? It looks like it’s going to rain tomorrow night, so Team MBB will probably spend the night watching scary movies and eating pizza at home. We might take Connor to the mall first to do a few circuits in her stroller, but that’s about it.
I hope you’re doing something fun.
