Happy Halloween

What is it with Mom and dressing up kitties, anyway?  The first thing I did when Mom plopped this thing over my head was go hide behind my platform.  Mom crawled after me and petted me and told me everything was all right and even pulled on my paw a little, but I wouldn't come out.  She went and sat on the floor with the camera, next to the treats and eventually I came out.  I used my hind foot to kick at this thing a little, but finally just made myself comfortable and Mom took two pictures.  She used one on Hansel's Halloween Contest blog and this is the other one.  Then she took it off, told me I was a good boy and gave me a treat.  Mom and I want to wish everyone a Happy Halloween.  Have fun, but stay safe.

Good for you, Herman! Your ruffle is very Halloweeny. Have only treats and no tricks today.

Oh no, Herman! Your human forced the EXACT same collar on you as mine did on me a few years back! You can see it in my flashback Friday from a week ago:

We hate costumes too, Herman, and we usually fight them when they are on us!! You look handsome in your collar, though.

Happy Halloween!

That costume is really fun, Herman. And because you are so handsome, you're one of the few kitties who could actually pull that look off. :)

We hope you and your mom have a great Halloween ... with lots of treats!

Oh Herman - you look so embarrassed in your photo. We think you were very brave for having your picture taken in your fancy collar. Next year tell your mom it's her turn for the collar and you'll take the photo!!

Oh Herman don't be embarressed you look quite fetching in your costume. Of course my Mom has to use the word cute again, as she says you look so cute. Actually I think you look handsome. You were very brave to come out and let your Mom take your picture. Have a Happy Halloween.

Herman, you look adorable in your Halloween costume. We hope you have a great Halloween!

OKcats said...

Wow, Herman, you are a REALLY good boy. Our mom didn't have the guts to try a costume on either of us. Karen Jo, our mom said that several people she works with have had their gall bladders removed, and several said the symptoms started with pain after fried foods. We hope you are feeling all better!

Happy Halloween!!

Your friends, Fuzzy and Zoe
