You can see my Halloween videos at my other blog Boomermuse

Odin agreed to pose for a sort of festive shot.

I spookified him for this card. He was not amused. Happy Meowloween anyway!

    What a lot of fun…could you hear me giggling! The pups thought I was nuts…

    Our Suki and Groucho were both born on Oct 2, in different years of course and our oldest son on the same day! An amazing bit of serendipity! We had Groucho…son was born…second kitty passed away…and Suki came next!! No problem remembering their birthdays!!
    Too bad there are not any new furries here born in October to use any of those fun names…

    My purrfect companion, Astor-kitty (all black long- haired 4 1/2 year old fluffy Maine Coon mix adopted from Maine Coon rescue in Oct. 2019) and I adored your amewsing jokes – LOL! I think of Astor as my witchy-cat furrmiliar!

    Here’s a great cat name: GRIMBOLD, a character in a brilliant middle-grade children’s fantasy novel:
    GRIMBOLD’S OTHER WORLD by Nicholas Stewart Gray, one of my favorite books when I was growing up. It’s been out of print for years and is available on Amazon, pricy, but worth it if you crave feline-centric fantasy.

    Another great cat fantasy trilogy for middle grade readers is the Carbonel, King of the Cats trilogy by Barbara Sleigh, reprinted and available on Amazon reasonably priced.

    Those books have a Halloween/magical vibes while not about Halloween specifically as does the rare GHOST OF OPALINA by Peggy Bacon which is so rare, physical copies are priced at hundreds of dollars and it is only affordable as an e-book.

    Happy magical mystical cat-centric reading on Halloween!
