Gruesome Guest Selfies

Hi, everybuddy, it's Thimble here. I was all ready to snap some selfies for today, but it wasn't meant to be. My momma had something else in mind. Something pretty gruesome.

It all started when my mom brought a pumpkin into the house. It was a giant pumpkin, and I sniffed it all over, and I even tried to climb it. It was pretty cool, I decided.

But, then, this is where it gets gruesome. My momma, she grabbed a knife, and she started stabbing the pumpkin. She stabbed it all over. There were guts everywhere.

And you know what happened then? My momma posed her victim for a selfie. How weird is that?

And then my momma lit her victim on fire.

I need to ask you friends something. Do your humans ever murder pumpkins with knives? Do they set them on fire? I hope I'm not the only one with a mom like this.

Well, either way, happy Sunday! And don't forget to visit the Kitties Blue over at The Cat on My Head for the Sunday Selfies blog hop!


Our Artsy Fartsy Endeavor of the Day:
You know what else happened this weekend? Snow flurries were flying through the air. The seasons are starting to get really confusing. Anyway, we made an ornament to wish everyone a, um, Merry Halloween?

Our Tip of the Day:
There is often extra traffic outside on Halloween. This can lead to a lot of extra people, noises, and other scenarios that could potentially frighten your kitty or pup. What's more, though much of the traffic on Halloween involves innocent children seeking candy, not all those out and about on Halloween are so innocent. Some people might, unfortunately, have malicious intent on Halloween. For example, sometimes black cats are targeted for cruel jokes on Halloween. For all of these reasons, please try to keep your furbabies indoors during Halloween festivities. Try to avoid walks and other outdoor activities, so as to keep your furbabies as safe as possible.

Hi Thimble! My Mom and Dad apparently torture a pumpkin every year too. They whack it up with a big knife then torch it with a candle. Scary stuff.....but since it's a cat pumpkin and it's for HOWLOWEEN, I think I won't mind! We like the way you did your cats' ears. Mom and Dad will try that this year instead of the way they normally do it. IT WILL BE MY VERY FIRST HALLOWEEN!!!! I'm so excited!

Hugs, Teddy

We love that pumpkin! The mom hasn't tried to cut up any around here. We don't trust her with knives. ;)

I enjoy your creativity. I usually do some kind of cat pumpkin, too. And, I often do a scared ghost face. Bill does the elaborate monster faces. He is artistic...I am just well-intentioned.

Wow...your human is one twisted lady!!! how the pumpkin turned out, and I adore your art!

I love that pumpkin kitty. I bet you will have fun crawling inside it and sniffing it's guts after the fire burns out. Hoomoms have strange behavior patterns this time of year. Wait until Thanksgiving comes...and see what she shoves up the turkey's patootie. I warn you, it ain't purrty.

Well, your momma may have done unspeakable things to that pumpkin, but we sure love how it turned out, Thimble!

Hello Thimble,

We suspect that it is a rather common thing, what you describe. Not here, though, as we live in a land far, far, away.

That's a kick-butt pumpkin!
And yes, many humans attack their gourds with knives, mess around in their innards, then light them on fire. Gruesome indeed!
