Dear Abby and the Case of the Halloween Cats

So Dear Abby has a letter today about how you should keep your cats inside at Halloween. And not just if you have a black cat.  All cats.  Because some people still believe in Halloween cat superstitions.  What the fuckery is this about?!  Since when is there a rash of cat pranks going on during Halloween?  And what Halloween superstitions are there other than black cats are bad luck?

It’s not like I have to worry about this.  I have 3 cats and they all live inside.  They wouldn’t survive in the real world.  They lack the proper cat  skills.  Outside is way too far from the food dish.   I have a cat that hides under the bed when it rains.  A cat that only gets off the couch to eat or go to the bathroom.  I poke her to make sure she’s still alive every once in a while.  She’s used to it by now.  And I have a cat that eats marshmallows.  So three out of three that wouldn’t survive if they were chosen for the Cat Hunger Games that apparently happens on Halloween.  My couch cat eats plastic if she’s out of cat food.  Shit, she’ll eat the tops of cupcakes on the counter if you leave them out at night.  A bite out of each one.  And she’s diabetic.

Well, non-cat superstition related, I just spent half an hour trying to figure out how to change the font color on here.  Xanga, this is not.  There’s barely any themes.  I’m not savvy enough to fix that so I’ve put feelers out to some friends.  Why does it have to be so complicated?!

I’ll be posting regularly now so get ready!
