Happy Halloween 2020 #CaturdayArt

And now our answers for the Friendly Fill-Ins challenge, hosted by 15andmeowing and Four-Legged Furballs!

Mudpie's answers:

1. I keep trying to tone down the cuteness, but it isn't working. I sure hope everyone can handle it.

2. I don’t need Mommy to buy more squeezies for awhile, but I want her to pick up a couple extra packages every time she goes to the grocery store, just in case. For awhile this summer they became very hard to find and we started to panic. I need my squeezies more than oxygen! Thankfully they seem to be reappearing so hopefully it was just a temporary production issue.

Mommy's answers:

3. I would want a cat to be etched onto my tombstone. There's a stone in the cemetery where my maternal grandparents are buried that has a cat on it and it's so sweet.

4. If I heard something go bump in the night, I would check to see if Mudpie was in bed with me. If she was, I would start to worry.

Freaky Flashback #PetPhotoFails

Meows from Mudpie!

How can it possibly already be the last Friday of October??? If only the summer hots could fly by this fast. Anyways, thank you for joining us once again for the Pet Photo Fails Blog Hop!

Our fail this month doubles as a flashback from my first Halloween here in my forever home. We've posted it before because Mommy loves it so much, even though the video quality is pawsitively horrid (hence, making it a fail.) On second thought, it is a Halloween video, so let's just say it's atmospheric! 

I don't know where Mommy picked up this little freak but he drove me batty every single time she turned him on. Nevermind the dogs...I left him wondering "who let Mudpie out???" Did you ever think I could be so vicious?

In this shorter second video, turn the sound way up so you don't miss my sputtering at the end. No matter what I did, I just couldn't kill him!

Thankfully after a couple years of him torturing me, his batteries died, and when Mommy went to replace them she found the battery compartment all corroded. He doesn't work even with new batteries inserted. He's finally DEAD!!! 

Note from Mommy: Does anyone know what I can use to clean the battery compartment in hopes of getting him to work again?

Note from Mudpie: SHUT UP, MOMMY!!! 

Those are my bloopers...let's see yours!

Halloween Decorating 2020

Meows from Mudpie!

We thought you might like to take a look at our Halloween decor for this year, starting with the Day of the Dead display. Yes, Mommy's collection of statues has grown. (Have you ever seen an x-ray of a momma cat expecting kittens? All you can see is little skeletons, just like this table!)

Our Halloween "cat village" consisting mainly of Lemax Spooky Town pieces...

A few Day of the Dead stuffies. It's hard to see but they're sitting in a cat-shaped wire basket which was supposed to hold a pumpkin.

And a black cat candy bowl holding another Dead of the Dead stuffie, witchy Pusheen, and a vintage cat Mommy picked up at AC Moore before they closed last year.

We have SO many Halloween decorations it would be impossible to use everything, so we stick to various cat-themed vignettes. Hope you enjoyed the tour!

Little Miss Green Eyes #CaturdayArt

Visit more artsy kitties at Athena's Caturday Art blog hop!

And now our answers for the Friendly Fill-Ins challenge, hosted by 15andmeowing and Four-Legged Furballs!

Mudpie's answers:

1. I might be a braver kitty than most on Halloween night. Trick or treaters have never scared me, although they're quite bothersome if I'm trying to take a nap. Mommy just worries about the door opening and closing so frequently and keeps a close eye on where I am.

2. If my house were haunted, Mommy would protect me.

Mommy's answers:

3. I want to clean up the leaves on my lawn before fall is over. I always mow over them instead of raking and bagging them, but the lawnmower is on the fritz. My lawn is a sea of yellow and orange!

4. The night I lost Truffles is the scariest thing that’s ever happened to me.

Fun Feline Finds: Ziploc Christmas Cats Storage Containers

Meows from Mudpie!

We have a quick fun feline find for you today. A couple weeks ago Mommy was doing her weekly grocery shopping (hopefully she was on her way to the squeezie aisle) when she spotted these adorable holiday Ziploc containers with Christmas cats all over them. They were only $2.99, a buck a piece, so she picked up two packages. 

Aren't they the cutest? Chances are slim that Mommy will be giving any away, but in addition to being used for food storage, we think they would be just adorable with little Christmas gifts or baked goods tucked inside. Mommy plans to put one out as a candy dish, and I just might ask to use a couple as kibble and water bowls for a little holiday flair when I'm dining. Hmmm...I could even stash a bunch of squeezies inside!

We found them at Hannaford Supermarket, but I'm sure all grocery and big box stores will have them as the Christmas season draws closer.

Can you think of any other uses for them?

Tortie Tocks & Target Totes

Meows from Mudpie!

Today we're celebrating Tocktober, a day to admire adorable little kitty tushies in honor of our dear friend Derby.

This picture was taken late one night after Mommy said it was time for bed. I decided I would rather sort through my toy collection (the overflow of my toy box resides in a Target bag) and look for something different to play with first.

Thankfully my tushie is pretty adorbs...but I can't believe Mommy didn't even cover up the naughty bits!!!
