Halloween Then & Now: Same Costume, Different Cat

During the fall of 2012 I was browsing the Halloween aisles at Petco when I saw the cutest cat costume ever, featuring a cowboy mouse on a saddle.


I bought it immediately, didn't even wait for a sale as I'm usually known to do. Part of my haste had to do with the fact that just a month before we had received the devastating news of Tara's congestive heart failure and probable cancer. I brought the costume home and that same week took Tara's picture wearing it. It was only mid-September, but truthfully, I didn't think she would still be with me come Halloween. She was a little too big around the middle for me to be able to fasten it properly, but I think she looked absolutely adorable in it.


As many of you know, my brave angel Tara hung in there until July of this year. Now Truffles is in my life and I wanted her to have a chance to wear this precious costume too. As with Tara, I couldn't fasten it around her tummy. Not because she's too big (far from it), she's just totally against sitting still in costume, forcing me to work as fast as possible! Still, I think she looks cute as a button in it.


My two special little cowgirls, then and now.

  5. Too adorable for words. Both kitties look meowvalous. Our mom is the super sale shopper, but she would have done exactly as you did had she seen this. Have a safe Halloween. Purrs and hugs, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

  9. Oh! Too cute! My orange boy cat, Honey Badger has a scarf he likes to wear around the house. He's totally fine with it and carries on like normal when I put it on him. My girl cat, Gargoyle, however, does not appreciate costumes of any kind.
