Ummm… Huck’s costumes are in.  Every time i try he bolts in true Huckleberry fashion😱😱😱

Not giving up,  just need the right moment…I hope?!🤣

He really is the most loving,  affectionate kitty…. on his terms,  lol. Let’s just say I cannot give him a nail trim,  brush his teeth,  clean his ears… which are all good b/c he will let me examine.  Just don’t mess with him🤣🤣😂 I just find it humorous now.  

Same kitty… literally throws himself on my pillow/ head at 6am if he thinks I’ve slept in too long 🤐

We shall keep trying… got a bow tie and a bandana on him once before,  right?!?!?

❤❤❤

Well, who can blame him really?! I mean cats in costumes is a huge ask!

Huck is his own guy, and will decide when (or IF!) he’s ready. No worries!

I’ve actually never really been into Halloween, I only did the ‘Unfortunate Surfer’ with Elly a few years ago because it was a fundraiser for Tripawds.

But, Elly seems to be in the Spirit this year:

Tri-pug Maggie survived a 4.5 year mast cell cancer battle only to be lost to oral melanoma.
