Happy Halloween! Mercury and the Missions are off being spayed and neutered today, so we had their Halloween party a day early. We took a vote, and they all wanted to be cowboys and cowgirls, so here you go!

“Howdy, partner.” (Mercury)

“Giddy up!” (Aurora)

“If you’ll pardon me, I’ve got a sister needs lassoing.” (Telstar)

“Get along, little dogies.” (Stardust)

“I get to be a cowgirl?!”

“ROUND ‘EM UP, HEAD ‘EM OUT!” (Phoenix)

“You must be new ’round these parts.” (Hubble)


The fosters aren’t the only ones who dressed up for the holiday, of course. We couldn’t get the permanent residents to agree on a theme, though.

“If I’d known THIS is what was going on in this house, I would have stayed in the garage!” (Maxi)

“Howdy, y’all.” (Frankie)

“Why, lady? Whyyyy?” (Newt)

Look at me!
Look at me!
Look at me NOW!
It is fun to have fun
But you have to know how.
(The Archie in the Hat ain’t happy with me.)

“I recommend you sleep with one eye open, lady.” (Archie again.)

“Drat!” The Loony Wizard realizes he left his wand at home.

Little bunny Alice
Hopping through the forest
Scooping up the field mice
And bopping them on the head

Naturally we had to have a new Frog Alice picture.

“I am so fabulous,” thought Stefan with a smile.

“Pssst!” said Frankie. “I hear you’re the man to ask for the GOOD catnip!”

“I certainly am. It’s good to be The Man!”


A rerun from Halloween 2014. This will always be my favorite Halloween picture, I think. (Dennis was not up for wearing a costume this year. Hmph!)

“HUMANS! Come to the dark side! We have CRUNCHIES!”


2016: Happy Halloween!
2015: Happy Halloween!
2014: “Hallo, I’m Alice and I’ll be your frog for the evening.”
2013: “These kitten wings are so fresh and tasty! Could use a little BBQ sauce for dipping, though.”
2012: Perfect Halloween kitty!
2011: This time of year, when you see a gathering of very interested looking kittens, it means a wasp has gotten inside.
2010: No entry.
2009: No entry.
2008: I suspect Lem.
2007: No entry.
2006: I don’t know why my mother felt that Maddy would make a good hat. Maddy did not agree.
2005: I think Miz Poo and Mister Boogers have more fun in the kitten room than the kittens do.

  1. The last picture of Stefan is perfection. The little satisfied smile gives it away. The man wants to be a snappy dresser!

  2. I can’t pick just one, they’re all just 5 stars! (Although seeing Phoenix in her little cowgirl hat, immediately “I Wanna Be a Cowboy/girl” by Boys Don’t Cry popped into my head. Because of course it did.)

    Archie cracks me up.

  3. I love ALL of these pictures!! How will you pick just two for the October pages of next year’s calendars?

    Happy Halloween and everyone remember to keep your outdoor kitties safe inside!

  4. So many good pictures of the kids in their costumes this year but the one of Dennis is one for the ages.

  5. LOVE THESE!! You are the best. I can’t get my cats to cooperate for even a second, the brats.

  6. Oh Stefan! 🙂
    Love all the Halloween pics!

    We just adopted a ginger boycat that looks rather like Stefan (although maybe a bit smaller). I wish we had costumes for him.

  7. Those are great pictures! Love Wizard Jake. And Stephan. And the Dennis picture is a classic.

    Happy Anniversary to you and Fred!

  8. The last two photos of Stefan and Dennis were “Fabulous”. Classic and so Funny. I never realized that Stefan had so much style ! Loony Tunes Jake is always a treasure !
