Halloween Extravaganza Cat King and Queen of Pumpkins

Halloween Cat King and Queen of Pumpkins by Layla Morgan Wilde

Excuse our scary appearance. Our website is undergoing a face lift. Some photos on mobile won’t load but laptops and desktops are fine. And the comment box is working.

Every year since beginning this blog in 2011, we’ve loved getting our Halloween groove on. So much so, there are dozens of spooktacular posts in our archives like:

Halloween remains a favorite holiday and while I’m not a huge fan of cats in costumes of any kind, there are exceptions. This year with my elderly cats not in the mood to dress up, I decided a festive orange vest would suffice. Clyde has never worn a harness or sweater, let alone a costume but he took to it instantly.


Meanwhile, Domino, who was recently diagnosed with cancer wanted to go out but we can’t risk having him outside unsupervised so we used a harness and leash. He’s always loved soaking up tree roots energy and enjoyed this mossy spot. It seemed to rejuvenate him.

In a full circle moment, Odin pranced by. I wonder if Odin remembered the leash. We used it when he was a kitten and met Domino for the first time. Domino was still an outdoor feral and ran away in fear when the bold Odin ventured near. He refused any notion of dressing up.


We shared tons of fabulous cats on our Instagram stories at @BlackcatsofIG from funny costumes to festive photography. It was hard to choose but our winner for the King of Pumpkins is Carl with sidekick Jude @carlandjude.Β 

They’re new on Instagram and off to a brilliant start.

And the winner of the Queen of Pumpkins is Ledges from @blackcattrails.

She and her sisters are featured in our book, Black Cats Tell All. Can you believe it was published two years ago this month? There have been no new reviews lately, so it you haven’t snapped up a copy, it’s a purrfect gift for the holidays and on sale now!

  3. Well, in the previous post about kitties hiding illness I could see all the pics, but not here…sigh…even after reloading. (Firefox)
    Those seasonal vests and leashes sound good to let your kitties have some good outside time. We are staying put here as its cold, bluster and worse to come: Snow:(
