Halloween Decorating 2021

Meows from Mudpie!

Remember my first Halloween when I tried to kill the freaky hip hop mummy cat that sang "Who Let the Dogs Out?" 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. She even tried cleaning it with alcohol to no avail. He's finally DEAD, but Mommy loves him and still insists on putting him out. 

She says he's protecting my squeezie stash, which proves he wants to be friends, but I don't trust him and count the packages every day. I hadn't better ever find one missing or he'll wish it was the dogs still after him!


Moving along to more of our Halloween decor, this is our Day of the Dead display. Yes, Mommy's collection of statues continues to grow. (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 stuffies. It's hard to see but some are sitting in a cat-shaped wire basket which was supposed to hold a pumpkin.


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!

Unboxing October's CatLadyBox

 The theme of October's CatLadyBox was the annual Black Cats Box...here's what was inside!

Featured Cat Lady Artist: Karen Obuhanych

Black Cats Rule Sweatshirt: This super soft sweatshirt shows the world that we (rightfully) view cats as royalty.


Ombre Black Cat Concrete Planter: I have a black thumb but I'll be picking up an artificial succulent for this cute planter.

Black Cat Puff Keychain: I rarely use things the way they were intended, and I plan to hang this on my Christmas tree!


Meowgical Feline Frog & Flappy Bat Cat Catnip Toys: Luckily for Mudpie she started playing with these toys right out of the box or I would've snitched them to add to my Halloween stuffie collection!

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



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

Mommy's answers:

1. Cuddling with Mudpie immediately improves my mood.

2. I think Hitchcock movies & TV shows are really spooky. Have I ever mentioned here that I'm a huge Hitchcock fan? Somehow I don't believe I have...

Mudpie's answers:

3. My go-to place to purchase squeezies is anywhere they're available. If a shady looking cat on the street corner was selling them I would still be in line!

4. I wish I had a magical potion for unlimited squeezies.

Thankful Thursday: Dollar Tree Delight

Meows from Mudpie!

Over the weekend Mommy was shopping at Dollar Tree and noticed this pretty pink & purple track toy. I have one of the popular 3-tiered orange ones that I got for my very first Christmas, and I still play with it to this day, so she wondered if I would be interested in a single track one.

Since it was in *my* colors and only a dollar she couldn't resist bringing it home, and it's a good thing she did, because I LOVE it!

I played with it ALL that afternoon, and every day since, several times a day, I plop down in front of it and give it a whirl. Sometimes I even get Mommy to join me and we push it back and forth to each other.

She says this proves I need a kitty playmate. I say that's just crazy talk.


I'm joining the Thankful Thursday blog hop because I'm super thankful for my fun new toy!

I Have No Beds #SundaySelfie

Meows from Mudpie!

The other morning before work Mommy grabbed a paper grocery bag to gather up some recycling, but as soon as she laid it down I hopped on top and purrfectly shaped it to fit my body.

Several days later it's still there, and I'm still napping on it.

What's a tortie to do...it's not like I have a dozen other nap spots around the house!

We're joining our friends at The Cat On My Head for the Sunday Selfies blog hop!
