So the fall decorating goes on.  I probably will decorate until the first week of November.  Then I will put the Halloween stuff away and make it all Thanksgiving.  Ah...  I love this time of year.

Just thought I would give you a short post showing some of my decorations.

My scarecrows.  I had forgotten all about them until I was looking at pictures the other day.  In fact I had forgotten about a LOT of my things.

My black cats stay out all year.  That's why they are so dusty.  Oh my, I'll have to get on that tomorrow when I'm off from work.

My little stuffed Halloween cat.

The newest member of the pumpkin patch.  I had forgotten about this one too.
 Of course most of these came from Rite Aid.  When they go on 50% off and I get another 20% with my card -- well who can resist?

Pumpkin has settled in.  He plays and plays with the toys that Snowy never touches.  He climbs all over us and loves to sit in our laps and be petted.  I got him kitten chow and he went to town on it.

Snowy, on the other hand, is not a happy camper.  She growls, hisses and moves her tail back and forth which he thinks is great fun and tries to swat at.  She swats at HIM and got him in the face twice.  I try to let them just fight it out so the acceptance process progresses.  But if I see one of them getting hurt, I stop it.  It will just take time, but I think it will work out.  At least I hope so.

I checked Pumpkin over and he has no fleas or ear mites that I see anyway.  Still need to get him to the vet for a checkup.  I left my phone home yesterday by accident so couldn't call.  Today I will.

Snowy:  Get out of my house!

45 days to retirement


  1. It's always fun to pull old decorations out. Half the time I forget what I have, too. lol
    Your little kitty is going to do just fine and Snowy will eventually come around -they always do, it seems. One day when you least expect it you will find them cuddled up sleeping together. lol xo Diana

  2. I love all of your fall decorations, and especially love hearing about Pumpkin. I have 2 cats an old lady and a youngster named Spotty, so I know the fun they can have.

  3. 'Tis the season!!! Loved seeing your decorations!!! Pumpkin?? I think I must have missed a post or two!!!

  4. Kathy, I love all your cute decorations. I also like the way Snowy is looking at Pumpkin. LOL. Blessings, xoxo,Susie

  5. Those scarecrows are so cute! I love Rite Aid decor too
    Our big cat Oreo does the same thing to poor Lucky. They are starting to adjust though, I think!

  6. Love the decor. Isn't it a nice surprise finding something you'd forgotten? Almost like a new gift! I think that Snowy will come to accept Pumpkin. It is wise of you to only interfere when it escalates. Give it time (which is not always easy). One day you will see them cuddled together,especially now with the colder weather coming.


Thanks for visiting. I love hearing from you. I often reply to your comments, so feel free to check back.
