Primitive Trio of Halloween Cat Shelf Sitters!

"Spook, Boo, And Ghost Tabby"

It was late one Halloween night last year and two mice and a cockroach got dressed up for Halloween. They dwelt in the old Witch's cottage and were quite bored.
They saw the ghouls and goblins going from cottage to cottage.
They saw the Witch's familiars dressing up, and even the Witch herself dressed and went out among the villagers.

So, the mice and cockroach decided to join in on the fun, too.

The first to get dressed was the cockroach...he decided to disguise himself as a green ticking fabric cat that had been 'aged 'in the South Carolina sun.
How clever he was.
He placed a rusty metal star and a wooden button for eyes.
And to get into the spirit of the night, he wore an 'aged' tag with his name BOO. He also wore a rusted heart button on his chest.

He also tied an orange and black Halloween collar around his neck. And, he used some 'aged' wooden spools for legs. He topped it all off with some cute Halloween Tags to wear on his collar.

The next critter to get dressed up was one of the mice. I think it was the mouse with the missing front leg.
Anyway, he appeared as an aged mustard ticking fabric cat.
And, borrowing the idea from the cockroach, he used a rusty metal star and a wooden button for eyes.

He also wore a Halloween fabric collar that was orange and black plaid. And his 'aged' paper tag had the name SPOOK stamped upon it.

And the other mouse, the one with a growth on his shoulder, ALSO decided to dress up like a cat. His costume was made of red and white ticking fabric and he chose a rusty metal star and a wooden button for eyes.

And in spite of the chip on his shoulder, as well as that growth, he attached a rusted heart on his chest like the others did. ....but he didn't like it.... he's become quite bitter through the years.
There's one in every crowd.

But, he did sit himself up upon two wooden spools, like the others, and he wore a collar of Halloween fabric of orange and black. And, his 'aged' paper tag spelled out GHOST TABBY.
All three creatures stood about 10 1/2 inches tall, give or take. And they stood on little wooden spools for legs.

They went out into the village and was having a wonderful time with all the bread crumbs, boxes of cereal, and stale cookies, when they ran into the Witch.
She knew immediately who they were and she was upset.
If you want to know the truth, it was because they had better costumes than the Witch and her cohorts.
The Witch denies it to this day, but I know that was the reason.
Anyway, the Witch promptly kicked the mice and cockroach out of her cottage and now they have to find another place to dwell.

They are all dressed for Halloween again for this coming Halloween so you can't see how scary they are in real life. And they promise not to ever remove their costumes....AND they promise that if you take them home, they won't breed.

You gotta admit, that's a pretty good promise, considering the breeding habits of mice and cockroaches.

And just to let you know, I'm not afraid of mice at all, but cockroaches terrify me. I hate them more than any other creature on the planet. So it took a lot for me to 'face my fears' and write about such a loathsome specimen of vermin.
*more shudders*
