This is Halle.

She’s a homeless kitten here in Huntsville (Alabama) rescued by a friend. Halle is about 3 months old, and weighs 3 pounds. She’s undergoing surgery today for a diaphramic hernia, which she needs to save her life. (I am cutting and pasting this part: Basically, her abdominal organs have perforated her chest area. This often happens when cats are thrown from or hit by a car, and this poor girl showed signs of other injuries as well.)

It’s not a cheap surgery – estimated cost will be $2,100 – $2,800 – and so if you could spare a little, I know that it would be very much appreciated. You can call Huntsville Veterinary Specialists & Emergency at (256) 715-8389 to make a donation (just be sure to give them Halle’s name.) Alternately, if you prefer to donate without talking to anyone, you could send a donation via PayPal to Debbie right here.

In honor of Halloween, we’ve got a couple of pictures of kittens in hats. In honor of Throw Back Thursday, we’ve got a bunch of Halloween pictures from previous years! (If you’re an Instagram/Facebook/Twitter/Tumblr follower, there will be more pictures of kittens posted throughout the day.)


Beauregard, the little devil.


Mohawk’d Luc.


Princess Cam. (2018)


Cowboy Frankie. (2017)


The Archie in the Hat. (2017)

Little Stefan on the Prairie. (2016) Fun fact – we love this picture so much that we had it printed on metal at Printerpix and it’s hanging in Fred’s office.


“HUMANS! Come to the Dark Side! We’ve got crunchies!” My personal hands-down favorite cat-in-costume pic, Dennis in 2014.


“Hi-ho, it’s Alice de Frog!” (2014)


“Moo.” (Sugarbutt in 2014)

  1. Your cats in hats are sooooo adorable! What a great way to start a grey, rainy day in NY. If there will be more on Instagram, I’ll have to go there to feed my head! 🙂

  2. Love love love these pictures, especially sweet (never evil!) Dennis!!

    Happy Halloween and anniversary!

  3. that you still have a hand to type and post pictures with is amazing! my “sweet” rescue boy would take my hand at the wrist if I tried such shenanigans! Happy Halloween!

  4. Love, Love, LOVE all the pics!!! (Lordy, I may remember them from their ‘first time arounds’… but no less appreciated!!!) Happy Halloween to the Shady Cove Gang… and Happy Anniversary to Robyn & Fred!!! (see, I told you I remember TONS of stuff… just can’t ever find my glasses, car keys, etc!) Have a great day!

  5. This made my morning 🙂 Not that they aren’t all absolutely adorable, but Stefan, Alice and Dennis…can’t stand the cuteness and the expressions on their face kill me dead. Happy Halloween!

  6. Alice de Frog! Yaaaay! *waving my arms like Kermit* Happy Halloween to you, to Fred, and to all the cats and kittens.

  7. I sent in a small donation for Halle. We hope that she’s feeling better soon!

    Your cats in hats make me giggle every time. I think that they really need hats for EVERY holiday, even the less known ones – like World Nutella Day, National Vodka Day, etc.

  8. I’m a little late to the party, but oh how awesome it is to see the Throwback Thursday pictures! Cowboy Frankie and Alice the Frog! Oh, I remember when those came out.

    Thanks for the memories!
