I Need a Costume…..

Mom……….you have to get us costumes right away!!!

Shakespeare what are you yelling about?

I need a costume and I need it now.  You should get one, too.

Why would I want to do that?

Don’t you know what tomorrow is?

It’s Wednesday and that means Mom goes to choir practice.

Noooooooooooooo!  I mean yesssssssssss……….she does go to choir practice……but it’s Halloween.

So?

I’ve been looking up Halloween on the internet and it’s when kids dress up in costumes and go door to door saying, “Trick or treat.”  Then the humans give them candy as treats.

In the first place, Mom won’t let us out of our own back yard so there will be no walking around the neighborhood.  In the second place whatever we try to say, humans aren’t going to understand us.  Only Mom understands us ‘cuz she knows us so well.  In the third place you know perfectly well that Mom won’t let us eat candy.

Well aren’t you the bubble-burster.

I’m just giving you the real facts.

Maybe Mom can carry us around to some of the houses and maybe some of the humans living there can hand out other treats, like catnip.

Don’t think it’s going to happen.  Besides, would you really allow yourself to be dressed up in a costume?

Now that you mention it, no way!!!!  Can I ask our readers something?

I don’t think I can stop you so go ahead.

Dear readers, if your little humans come home with catnip or Whisker Lickin’s, can you send them to us.  We know the little humans wouldn’t like those treats and we LOVE them!

HAPPY HALLOWEEN!
