We wish everyone a safe, happy and fun Halloween! And for extra enjoyment, here’s the “Halloween” portion of the “Holiday Fun (& Danger) chapter in The World Is Your Litter Box Deluxe Edition
Halloween:  Another holiday fraught with both fun and danger. Halloween is a time when little humans, and some big ones, dress up in strange costumes, some of which are pretty scary. Usually, the little ones will go out trick-or-treating (whatever that is) and come home with bags full of teeth-rotting candy. This will provide you with a fine new source of diversion as you investigate the bag and remove anything that looks interesting... or edible. Another fun thing about Halloween is the pumpkins, which are carved up by humans to have scary or comical faces. When I was a kitten, I quite enjoyed climbing inside pumpkins for a look-see. However, with my massive expanse, I can no longer do so (oh the curse of aging). Also, if you are a black cat, this holiday’s for you. For some reason, many humans consider it bad luck if a black cat walks in front of them. So if you are of the ebony persuasion, you can have extra fun by bedeviling those who are blatantly superstitious.

Now, on the danger side, there are a couple things to watch out for. First, there=s the scariness aspect. Halloween is a time when humans like to frighten each other by making scary sounds, watching scary movies, and wearing horrifying things such as zombie masks. To a cat, needless to say, some of these things are hair-raising to the nth degree. Therefore, it’s often best to find a good place to hide and stay out of your human=s way until their sanity returns. Also, if you are an outdoor cat, stay inside after dark. At night, dozens of humans are out on the street, trick-or-treating and acting especially goofy. Some teenage male humans see Halloween as a time to pull off pranks such as toilet papering their girlfriends’ homes, which is actually quite delightful. However, some of their antics are much more dangerous and sinister. As with the Fourth of July, there are some heartless, misguided humans who will torment cats for their own amusement. Off with their heads!

Note #1:  Investigate bags of trick-or-treat candy all you want, but don’t eat too much. In large quantities, candy will cause tooth decay and make you sick, possibly necessitating a trip to the vet (talk about scary!).

Note #2:  Some humans put candles inside their pumpkins and light them. If you are a kitten, or small enough to investigate the inside of a pumpkin, make sure the candle is out before you go in. Even though flickering flames are attractive and interesting, they will burn you if you get too close. Ouch!

As you may already know, the release of The World Is Your Litter Box Deluxe Edition marks the first time The World Is Your Litter Box has been available as an ebook for all types of electronic devices, including iPhones and iPads. Since almost everyone has some kind of device, and since The World Is Your Litter Box Deluxe Edition is selling for only $3.03 at Amazon, there’s really no reason for any true, upstanding cat nut to be without this book. In fact, just to drive the point home and put things in proper perspective, here are ten everyday items that cost more (and are way less funny) than The World Is Your Litter Box Deluxe Edition

  • 1 gallon of gas
  • 1 Big Mac and fries at McDonald’s
  • 1 mocha frappuccino at Starbucks
  • 1 energy-efficient light bulb
  • 1 Sunday New York Times
  • 1 dozen doughnuts at Dunkin’ Doughnuts
  • 1 loaf of wheat bread
  • 1 six-pack of Coca-Cola
  • 1 issue of People magazine
  • 1 pair of socks

Just think… for less than the cost of any of these items, you could be reading The World Is Your Litter Box Deluxe Edition on your electronic device while you’re riding to work on the subway, while you’re in a boring class or meeting, or even while attending a tiresome, mind-numbing party with snotty pseudo-intellectuals. So if you want true bang for your entertainment dollar, order a copy of The World Is Your Litter Box Deluxe Edition immediately and get ready to laugh your tail off. Here’s a convenient link to Amazon.

Steve and his female (my humans) are going on vacation for a week. Since Steve is my typist, I won't be doing any posting here until they return on October 11th. Meanwhile, I hope everyone has a wonderful week!
