Fun Feline Finds: Vintage Cat Mask

Last year around this time I was browsing Walmart's website for Halloween goodies when I ran across this vintage cat mask. I fell in love with it, but of course it wasn't available in my store, and it was sold out online too. I found a few listed on eBay for $50 paired with a vintage pumpkin mask that had also become scarce. Once the spooky season was over I gave up trying to find it.

Fast forward to last week when I was once again checking out this year's Halloween offerings at Walmart, and when I did a search for "Halloween cat" the very same vintage mask was at the top of my search results! Not only that, it said 2 were available at my local store! I was hoping to be able to order it online and then pick it up later in the day, but that wasn't an option. I was so eager to get my hands on the mask I nearly left work early, but I was a good girl and waited.

Finally at lunch I flew out the door and headed for Walmart, where both masks were still sitting on the shelf. (Which leads me to ask, with everyone so paranoid about COVID, why are Halloween costumes out in the open for anyone to try on, possibly contaminate, and then put back down?) 

But anyways, I finally had my vintage cat mask, which I plan to hang on the wall with my Halloween cat decor. Better still, Mudpie's squeezies were finally restocked after being unavailable all summer, so it was a very successful shopping day!

That indeed is what we'd call a successful shopping day! I left work a bit early the other day to go do some Halloween shopping at Target. I nabbed a cat scratcher in the form of a haunted house, as well as some Halloween goodies for myself, so I was a happy camper. Purrs!

Mom saw this mask on the internet last month and after we read this post of yours the other day I reminded her that she still needed to buy one for me and sent her to the store. I have the mask now proudly on display. Thanks for the reminder and for sharing a love of All Hallows Eve! Purr purr purr.
