HALLOWEEN CREATURE FEATURE!

Kitties!

Happy Halloween!

We have some mighty frightening creatures here in the desert...guaranteed to scare the fur pants right offa you!
Please shield young kittens and squeamish humans from the following photos:
Mister Kadiddle Hopper!
Mommy is terrified of these.

Sidewinder Rattlesnake--notice something missing from the tip of the tail?  We chewed the rattles off before Mommy took it away from us!
She's a real buzz kill, sometimes. 

Johnny and his Desert Hairy Scorpion--sadly, Scorpions are not good at playing a long time.

The Little Brown Bat that Could!
Almost scare the poop out of Mommy, that is.

A Tarantula!  
 He was meandering down the hall at work, so Mommy scooped him into the jar and released him outdoors.

Missus Black Widow, with her potential children.
These Ladies are Bad News.  Daddy sprays poison to kill them and Mommy smashes them with her shoe. They are worse than rattlesnakes--at least with a snake bite there's antivenin shots; a Black Widow bite would kill us.

Speaking of dead, here's a dead cockroach.  Which is how most of 'em end up after WE see 'em!
They don't taste good though.  We leave the carcasses for Daddy to clean up.

A Praying Mantis!
We are Not Allowed to eat these; something about being good for the environment, blah blah blah.
Whatever.

And now, the Most Terrifying Creature of them all...

The STYLISH MOMMY!
aaaaaaaaaaiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiieeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!!!!!


Happy Halloween Monday!

  2. I think your Horror Show was delightful and delicious (well, maybe not that rattlesnake), but somehow the Human just did not appreciate it as I did. Pfft. People. Buzz killers, every one.

  3. Ok so, we aren't allowed to eat Mantids either. That Woman said the snake was the bomb! She LOVES them. Since we don't haz any here we wouldn't know. She does draw the line at the scorpions though. She did go 5 sheets of white at that photo. We think all them legs look pretty juicy. Black Widows, got em' we don't mess with them though. We refuse to acknowledge cockieroachies. eeewwwww. BATS are WAY COOOL but we don'tz gottem here neither and you can keep your trantulas too. Too big, too hairy; not much meat on 'em. The grasshopper is giant! We haz those and we don'ts care. Those spiny legs get stuck in our teefs.

    We all got bottlebrush tails at that last photo though but not cuz of anything cept That Woman LOLing so loud she scared the crazypants right offa us.

    Happy Meowloweenie!

  4. We think you have the best toys around! We love the cat hair all over the roach, and wonder if the rattle snake lived and grew new rattles. The mom lived in Phoenix for a couple years and learned not to fear some those critters (it took awhile), she even had a dead scorpion collection which mysterious disappeared during the move back east. Happy Howl-O-Ween!

  5. We are in awe of you guys. Those critters are well scary. We are not sure what we would do if we met them, especially Mirsku: he spent two days upstairs because Tessie-kilpikonna was at the bottom of them and he was scared! We get worried about eagles but they cannot get through the catio. However we could give your Mom a run for her money - our Äiti is a million times worse than she is! We daren't ever post a picture of her.....

    Sherpa the Farm cat had a rattlesnake. A very, very little one.

  8. Gah, those creatures gave me the heebiejeebies. Well, not your mommy. I dress like that too.

    ReplyDelete
  9. Whoa! You guys caught a RATTLESNAKE?! I am impressed!! Most of those creatures look pretty yummy. Sadly, we do not get praying mantids out here, because they look like FUN! We get black widows out here too, and my human finds them outside sometimes - they are the only creatures my human does not feel bad about killing; she only does it to protect us!

  10. We haf dem hopper things here but dey don't bother mom, either do da praying bugs. Now, she's glad dat we do not haf snakes 'cept fur some harmless ones and no poisoness spiders either, at least dat is what she sez, we don't know 'cuz some of dem taste purrty bad.

  11. Wow, you have some very scary monsters where you live. Mummy thinks bats are very cute. That praying mantis looks like its laughing. Mummy thinks your mummy is very brave to catch such a scary spider. We only get little ones here but I think the mumster would run screaming from one of those monsters hee he. Enjoy Halloween and we hope all you kitties get lots of lovely treats :)xxxx

  55. Thanks for stopping by for my birthday! I hope you all got lots of treats, cause I know you can pull lots of tricks. Maybe your parents would suspend the catch and release program for one day and let you eat what you catch! Happy Halloween!

    ReplyDelete
  56. OMC! Those were scary! The snake, the scorpion, the spiders...

    But Mommy caused us ta go put our faces in the waterbowl! It burned, it burned...

    ReplyDelete
  57. We had to cover our mom's eyes from all those scary creatures!! She's a wimp when it comes to spiders and snakes and other creepy crawlies.

    Happy Halloween to all of you!!

    ReplyDelete
  58. The pictures were really cool, until the spiders. Don't like spiders. You guys have cooler critters than my guys in MO. Lucy, our dog, has gotten three opossum, but a few crickets and little spiders are the best the cats can do.

    Love your ears and crocs. We are in identical attire, except mine is blue. And I have no crocs. Or ears.

    ReplyDelete
  59. You all sure have some crawly creepy critters around your place. We think your mom looks very cute in her cat ears. She really is a pretty mom. Those are really nice pictures of all your critters. Mumsy thought it was cool that your mom was holding that bat. Hugs and nose kisses

    ReplyDelete
  60. We loooove your creepy critters - except for the bat because we love bats. Mice with wings! The stylish mummy, well, the cat accessory makes up for a lot :-)

    ReplyDelete
  61. Wooooo, some of those were very spooky! Those scorpions bother us the most, and the tri-ant-ula. Mumsy gots one of them tangled up in her hair one time. She hasn't been to fond of them since then. We not allowed to eat, or even play with, those man-tass-is-its either. Yup, something about they being good...blah-blah, yatta-yatta yatta...

    We hope all you guys had a fun Halloween! Thank you for coming to visit us. It felt really good to be missed.

    Hugs to all and we see you guys later :-)

    ReplyDelete
  62. Bwwwaaaaahhhh! You made our mom get all girly and skeered! She was okay with the grasshopper, the snake, the praying mantis, and the bat! It was the spiders and the roach that did her in. Mom can't even look at spiders on t.v. To her the movie, Arachnaphobia was the scariest horror movie ever! And it wasn't even a horror movie!

    ReplyDelete
  63. Those are some nasty critters!!! Meowm remembers all to well having black widows and the cockroaches! Yuck!!! She really hated the cicadas too. Noisy little bastards. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  64. We must admit, we were so glad to see the mommy and kitty after looking at all those creepy critters!!

    ReplyDelete
  65. Mom got the chills looking at these desert creatures. She's glad I don't get to play wif them.
