When I was little, my mother would pull out the cardboard Halloween decorations from the basement each year and decorate the house. It was an October tradition I loved. I enjoyed pulling the Scotch tape from the dispenser, yanking off a new piece to help hang the images of the witches, pumpkins and ghouls in the window just so.
One of my favorites was a tall and graceful black cat. It had a crafty, even deceptive look to its face, but it was in no way scary.
I have loved cats my whole life, and never identified with the concept of the scary cat but I did love seeing them played out in movies and Halloween stories. Now, I have my own cardboard black cat to hang in my window, and three pet cats. One is black and named (of all things) Baby, but she isn’t in the least bit scary (except maybe when I try to put some Frontline on her!).
But since Halloween is right around the corner, we decided to indulge ourselves and add to the spooky fun here at Babble Pets. Take a look at 13 spooky, gnarling, sinister felines who just might serve up some chills on Halloween night:
