Cats (part 1) - Halloween and Cats

Butte and a Pumpkin/everystockphoto.com
Black cats and pumpkins.

Common images for decorations. It seems the two, Halloween and cats, were made for each other.

As a kid, I had enjoyed Halloween. Dressing up. Going to parties. Back in more innocent days when my friends and I roamed the neighborhood. Free candy at every door. It doesn't get much better than this.

Then I got older.

I heard too many stories of cruel things done to cats, especially on Halloween. But I can't really say anything bad happened in our neighborhood. But I locked up kitty anyway. Just to be on the safe side.

But what's a cat's perspective on this human holiday?

We may have some idea. This cool tuxedo cat, Henri, shares his dim view of Halloween.

One wise cat, that Henri. As well as an internet star of short, existential films.

And if you are watching this, it's on the internet. And the secret is out.

The internet is made of cats! 

That what it says in this video. And if it's on the internet, it must be true, right? ;)

And so begins a new thread.


It could prove to be a most interesting and amusing one. For there's no shortage of cat videos. Or cats.
