spooky pleasure

Halloween is one of those nights that used to cause a lot of stress. All those people roaming around at night and a horrible time to be a black outside cat. Unsafe. Every year I would try to round up Oliver and his family and keep them safe and sound on the back porch, but sometimes they refused and I would stress, stress, stress!

Tonight, Oliver and Pierre spend their first Halloween as inside only cats!!!!!! Yah!!!! All the cats celebrated with special yummy dinners!

Oliver enjoying his heated bed!
Pierre enjoying his heated window perch!
With all the challenge and emotional stress the move to New England has brought, I sometimes question our decision to move. I long for the settled home-life we once had. Did we make the right choice? Maybe it was a mistake?  And then I look at Oliver and Pierre being perfect inside kitty citizens, safe and well behaved, and I think it was worth it for that alone.

Happy Spooky Halloween! Purrs to all the outside kitties this night - stay safe and out of sight.


  1. It's wonderful that they transitioned so well. Happy Halloween from all of us.

  2. We're glad they've transitioned well too. No choice we make is perfect, and there's certainly no utopia, everything comes with pros and cons and compromises. As long as you and Laura are satisfied with whatever compromises you've had to make, all is well. :-)

  3. I had a talk with Sweetie and Paddy O'Malley, and they assured me that they would stay far away from any little sticky people!
