I mean, a black cat is basically. Living Halloween decor, right??
So please, join me on a month-long chronicle of Licorice's Very Normal* Adventures.
*This better not come back to bite me in the ass
October 2nd: our kittens are now 8 months old, and they've been calming down quite a bit. I thought it might be safe to open the window shades and let them enjoy some sunlight.
I was wrong.
October 3: Licorice has friends on the other side...
i'm the friend
Licorice would like to be on my side of the door now
October 4: I bought this hoodie-with-kitten-carrying-pouch over five months ago, and this is the first time Licorice has stayed in it for more than a few seconds. Look how much she's enjoying it! #31DaysOfLicorice
October 8: Licorice and Pudding engage in the most ancient and sacred of cat traditions, "Hunting Something That Only Cats Can See"
October 9: This is what you see moments before a Licorice unexpectedly erupts from under the blanket. #31DaysOfLicorice
October 10: Licorice is queen of all she surveys...
Licorice is also a champ at finding places just beyond my reach.
October 11: I suddenly felt a weight on my back, which quickly became a weight on my shoulder...
October 14: The elliptical machine is in the kittens' room, so the kittens usually stay in a playpen during our workouts. Tonight, we tried not using the playpen.
This was a mistake.
October 17: Licorice is far too mature* to play with window shades** like her brother Pudding
*This is not true
**Neither is this
October 22: Licorice has started hanging out near the office door. She doesn't necessarily try to leave through it, she just... hangs out.
October 27: I was going to put Licorice in the playpen so I could do an elliptical workout, but she had other ideas.
October 29: After months of disuse, the tent on the cat tree has been reclaimed by Licorice!
October 31: Licorice loves her new Ensorcellment hat (size M, pattern by Hunter Hammersen)!
Have a safe and happy Halloween, and always supervise your pets when they play with toys and costumes!
