Humans say we are creatures of habits. But they are creatures of predictability!
They had prepared some treats for Halloween to give to kids. I don’t know whether that was because of Sandy (I heard the humans say 90% of our town had lost power! Talk about a Ceiling Cat-blessed home we have!) but no kid came. Not a single one. My human was kind of sad… not that she would have to eat the candy herself, but that possibly kids couldn’t have as much fun this year.
So a huge plastic pumpkin, 3 or 4 times the size of Milou’s heads, and full of human treats, was still waiting next to the door when my human suddenly, yesterday evening, just before going to sleep, had the most stupid idea ever. She emptied the plastic pumpkin and, guess what?
Yep. She put Greenies in the plastic pumpkin.
Of course Milou fell for it.
So did Kitshka (with Milou waiting in line for a second round).
Little not-so-old me couldn’t be bothered to enter my head in the pumpkin for a couple of Greenies so that my human could take a picture. I cannot be bought for a couple of Greenies! Now if she had put fresh salmon in there… No, no, no! I get my Greenies on my terms!
Furriends: I am back to reading your bloggies. No seriously. So I’ll see you in a short while!
So glad to hear you are safe and sound. Sad that no kids came around but greenies in a pumpkin sounds like a brilliant idea – except, of course, for you, Texas :D
OMG – Hillarious – having a little pumpkin fun! Happy Friday:)
Youz not stupid Texas..youz the smart one..BOL What are greenies..BOL xx00xx

Greenies are delicious treats http://www.greenies.com/
You don’t have them in the UK?
That’s a wonderful Greenie-o-ween, thanks for sharing with me!!!!
At least your mom opened the bags of treats! Truffle had to steal a bag to get some treat for us.
And you didn’t trick her? Well, I guess Truffle did!
Haaaan ! Vous avez tout le matos, vous ! De vrais pros de “Challoween” !

We are glad that you are safe and sound. It sounds as though many people have/are sadly not doing as well. Probably why the children were so few trick or treating this year :(
Texas, tell your Mama you’ll have a greenie if she hand feeds you them ! Mwahahahahaha!!!
the critters in the cottage xo
Yes, the humans have a furriend in nearby Connecticut who still has no power and a lot are still like him around :-/
Glad to hear that you, brother and sister and the humans were all safe and sound at home! Perhaps next year will bring more small humans to the door, but I hope you will still have your Greenies. (without or without cute pumpkin!)
so you see it all turned out right in the end
Cute pictures, Texas. Way to be strong, though, and avoid being caught with YOUR head in the pumpkin!
So glad to hear you are all safe. We see some kitties having lots of Meowloween fun! MOL!
Awe, sorry to hear about the kids not coming at your door. :(
But hey, it all ended up good with greenies! ;)
Your Mommy might be a tiny bit twisted!
Awwww…. so cute. I think you have begun a new tradition. :)
Que bom que vocês se divertiram com a abóbora.
That sounds like a good idea to put the greenies in the pumpkins. That is sad that there weren’t any trick or treaters. But we are sure that the Darn Sandy slowed everyone down. Hope you have a good week end.
You are so wise not to fall for it :-)
très bon, bravo les chatloweens.
We’re glad your Mom got to get some Halloween treat fun in. We would stick our heads in a pumpkin for treats!!!!!
The Florida Furkids
I think that is one heck of a good idea!!!!!
Greenies in the pumpkin sounds like a much better idea. We are glad you are all safe.
Ahhhh…Texas…the SMART cat! High paws dude! You knew that the Mom was after the photo shoot! But ya have to admit, Milou and Kitshka look really pretty cute! miss ya Texas, Savvy
Awww… miss you too!
I think a Greenies-filled pumpkin is way more fun than one with stupid, boring candy in it!
I’m sorry you got no little ghouls at your door this Halloween. Maybe you’re like us. Our county moved Halloween to Saturday night so it will be safer for the little monsters to be out haunting the neighborhood. Hopefully the power will be on for everyone and the walkways will be clear. Our trick or treaters are just a few days late!
Hmm. I am not particularly fon of the Greenies, so i could prolly have resisted too, but I gotta say if there was Gerber’s in there? Well, Spitty woulda had his dead in there in a flash. Soooo glad you kitties and Humans are safe and even have power–yay XOXOXO
Your Mom’s idea to fill the pumpkin with greenies was way cool…..I think Sandy put a crimp in everyone’s Halloween festivities this year cuz we didn’t have many kiddies knock on our door. A few but only a few. Kinda missed that but there’s always NEXT year! So glad you all made it through Sandy OK though……..that’s the important thing!! :D :D :D
Kitty Hugs, Sam
Hey Texas, Jet here.
So relieved you are ok… (sorry for VERY bad manners in not checking in sooner.) Need anything?
Very creative with the pumpkin under the circumstances, tell Mom the truth, dude! The pictures were so funny. :)
Awww thank you Jet and Miss Lori!
We are fine, we were very lucky to have virtually no damages.
I have a little something for you! Check it out here…http://dogsnpawz.com/getting-a-blog-award-is-the-best.html
Diginty! It’s all about dignity! Well, for some anyway! MOL
Mon pauvre Texas, ce qu’il ne faut pas faire pour gagner ses friandises !
Moi, j’ai de la chance de ce côté-là, en ce moment : comme je suis de nouveau atteinte par de vilaines plaques rouges, Maman me gâte et m’offre plein de friandises ainsi que de nouvelles croquettes délicieuses, pleines de fibres !
Bon, faudrait quand même pas que ça dure trop longtemps, parce que je dois aussi avaler des cachets et ça… c’est nettement moins bon !
Bonne fin de week-end à vous tous et des ronrons à la citrouille magique !
Texas, you look like three curious witches in the first picture.. very spooky :D
I agree with the Celestial Kitties. Really, we are dignified creatures and being made to, well, lower ourselves to get the treats? Not cool. Hey, yesterday I meant HEAD not Dead, ha ha meow. But you probably figured that out! Hope efurryone back there is starting to recover from that horrible Sandy.
I came to say hello and see how you are doing, sweet furriend.
SCORE! Hey, we’re not too proud over here to stick our heads into a punkin for a few noms. Woo!! So you’re really well and all after that nasty Sandy? We were purring for you when that thing hit. 90% without power is not good….
I’m glad you’re all safe. Lovely pictures with the pumpkin!
