Halloween Special & Colouring with Cats #4 ~ Getting Your OM on [fur about 5 minutes]



Spooky greetings freaktastic furriends



Before we begin, we so loved stopping by your blogs yesterday and seeing all the amazing selfies, mew are all so pawesome!! Muwahahahahahahaaaaa!!! MOL MOL

As mew know we started our colouring with cats a few weeks ago, so don't think we're going to deprive mew of getting your zen harmonies happening and your OM on today, howeffur as it's Halloween we feel it most necessary to add a little mystery and a bit of a supurr-natural flavour to the proceedings...

So keep reading and enjoy the fun...



Here's this weeks colouring page, obviously we didn't make this one, the P.A. ran out of time this week and so we found this free one instead from www.hative.com - Just right click the image to save and print it...


Here's the P.A.'s finished effort:


Coloured using Sharpies fine nib markers.

is here and we're ready fur a chilling little tail, or we should say tale... muwhahahahahaha


A Spooky Tail on All Hallows' Eve 

It had been a frosty day, the air rather piquant with a fresh, zingy taste.  We'd just finished decorating the bunker in the most spooktacular fashion and even if I do say so myself, it looked as scary as the scariest place mew could effur imagine.  White, glistening cobwebs hung in thick swaths covering the walls and ceilings, bats dangled on invisible bungy cords, pumpkins galore were effurywhere. Spooky specters glided along the bunker corridors wailing chillingly and animated weird-wolves popped up and howled when mew least expected it.  The smoke-machine was on offurdrive and a white filmy mist swirled around rather hypnotically just above floor level.  Shocking shrieks and muffled bumps sounded through the comms systems and to be honest I nearly jumped out of my fur several times. 

The Control Room had been transformed into the Halloween Hub and all the pawty games were in place as an eerie bell tolled and a gruff voice announced:

'Get the pawty started!'
Parsley aka The Saucerer was bobbing fur nip-laced apples.  Posie aka The Mummy was lurching around unable to see due to a bandage malfunction.  Humphrey was wearing his invisibility suit and kept creeping on effurypurrdy, whispering in their ear in some strange foreign accent, "I'm vatching mew... muwahahahahahahaaaaa!"

Smoochie, Amber and I all had the same idea and were dressed as witches and warlocks. [note to self, I need a new costume fur next year]
Anyhoo, there we all were having a wail of a time, screaming like gurls while a sinister sound-track played in the background, plus we were enjoying some rather strange brew that Smoochie had concocted in the laboratory.  He'd even made it in a cauldron fur added effect and to be honest I could have swore at one point I saw a tentacle raise up out of the bubbling neon-green liquid, then sink below the mist-swirling surface, but he said and I quote;

"Trust me! I know what I'm doing, here drink this!" 

I did have several reservations hurtling through my mind, such as;

really?
mew sure about that? 
it looks a funny colour! 
and why is it smoking like that? 
did I just see a tentacle in my drink?

But I thought what the heck and aftur several shots I found it rather entertaining when an eyeball appeared in my glass, it was like a surprise bonus and we all laughed and laughed and laughed!

As the night progressed things did start to get a little outlandish, Snowie aka The White Phantom got tangled up in the suspension wires she'd rigged to her costume and hung upside down like she was trapped in some giant spider web and we just laughed and laughed and laughed!

Mid all this hysterical laughter the lights suddenly went out and we were plunged into darkness.  The inky pitch-black of a total power failure.

"Don't wurry," I laughed. "The back-up generator will kick-in in a couple of seconds!"

Time ticked by and we were all still sat in the dark.

"Basil?" Smooch said bumping into me then forcing another drink into my paw. "Why's the genny not wurking?"

"Ssssssshhhhh," Parsley hissed as we all giggled, too much nip and who-knows-what will do that to mew. "Do mew hear that?" he asked.

"Hear what?" Posie said as she tripped offur her bandages and landed with an ungainly thwump on the floor.

Scratch... scratch... scratch...

We all paused, listened and then laughed and laughed and laughed.

Scratch... scratch... scratch... 

"It's getting closer," Parsley said, sounding much sober than he had five seconds ago.

Scratch... scratch... scratch... 

We all paused, listened again and then laughed and laughed and laughed.

"DUDES!" Parsley said tersely, obviously he hadn't had as much cauldron nip as the rest of us. "There's something coming down the corridor!"

Scrape... scratch... scratch... scrape... scrape...

We all paused, listened again and then laughed and laughed and laughed.

I suddenly heard a sickeningly soft hiss and it made my fur bristle in all kinds of disturbing ways, or maybe that was the cauldron nip, at this point I couldn't be sure fur sure.

"Guys, was that one of mew?" I asked as my highly honed senses suddenly burst into life and began to eek out in the darkness. "Do mew smell that? It's rank, fetid and has a rather old dead odour..."

Amber took huge offence to this and said rather snappishly. "No I haven't been eating eggs again!"

"No not mew," I said.

Scrape... scratch... scratch... scrape... scrape...

"Basil," Humphrey whispered in my ear, his cold breath making my ear-fur tremble and I nearly screamed.  Only just managing to swallow down my shriek Humphrey continued. "I'll go check, I've got my night vision goggles on plus I'm invisible, stay here dude."

"Great idea," I said pushing him towards to door.

I could feel my fur-sibs draw closer towards me and Smooch whispered. "Do mew guys have any weapons?"

I heard the distinct clicks of several safety's being slid off in the dark and heard the collective reply of. "Of course we've got weapons!"

There was a light tap on my shoulder and Humphrey hissed. "Basil, dude... I don't know how to say this..."

"Say what?" I asked with much trepidation, feeling the sudden pump of adrenaline flood through my body like an icy wave crashing on the beach.

"There's a zombie cat in the bunker and it's lurching this way!" Humphrey gulped.  




Amber Screaming

Amber screamed, then we all screamed and screamed and screamed!

**And Cut**



We do hope mew've enjoyed our little Halloween story!

Stay safe furriends, stay indoors and don't make our mistake, LOCK THE DOOR!
