I’m not a big Halloween person per se, but if there’s one thing I do like, it’s handing out candy to trick or treaters. I couldn’t even say why–I think it’s because I love to surprise people and I love to give things to people, so giving little kids candy is right up my alley. Kids just have this way of getting so excited over the small things, like a handful of candy, you can’t help but smile!
I also like dressing up, just because I have a huge imagination and I love the excuse to put together something really crazy. Sadly, this year I have to work and managers can’t dress up (boo), so no costume for me. I had a steampunk costume all planned out, too. Oh well.
What I don’t like about Halloween: the fact that I have to keep the cats inside for their own safety. If you have a black cat, please keep them indoors so they don’t become the target of mischief from people with small minds and no hearts. Had to make that PSA!
my mom was never into halloween (she thought it was about satan), so as an adult, i’m all into it: dressing up, decorating (nothing scary, just pumpkins…more of a fall thing), candy, even my dog is dressed up since i have no kids. he’s lucky he’s a boy!!
I wish I could dress up my cats! They’d never stand for it though :D
You are so sweet!:) Sorry you can’t dress up, I am sure your costume would have been awesome!
I am still shocked that people can be so cruel. It should not shock me anymore. I have not even hurt about this before I moved to America.
It shocks me too, even though it probably shouldn’t. People suck. Animals are so much better :D
Oh and thanks for linking up, sweetie! You are fantastic!
Wow, would someone really hurt a cat just because of prejudice? That’s terrible. My nan gad a black cat and she was my favorite. <3

Sadly, it does happen! :( It’s a shame that people would treat a black cat poorly when they’re just as snuggly and loveable as any other color of cat :)
I have a little black cat and he is LIVID with me that I have kept him in all day but I keep telling him “Harrison, it’s for your own good!” He doesn’t understand me though :(
I have a little black cat named Harrison, and he is absolutely LIVID with me that I have kept him inside all day. I keep telling him it’s for his own good, but he keeps staring at me angrily.
Poor Harrison! I bet he’ll be happy to get out later in the week. :)
Nice post. I love handing out candy to little kids too and seeing their costumes.
Hopefully it won’t be too cold for the trick-or-treaters this year! :)

Aww I can’t believe people would do that to cats. :( I wish more trick-or-treaters came to our place. The first year we moved in, we went home from work early to beat the traffic, and we were so excited. But only 3 kids showed up in total for the whole night. It made me really sad. So we’re not heading home early this year.
What a bummer! We usually only get a couple of kids here, I kind of wish we got more. But I guess that means more leftover candy for moi, hehe.
Poor cat :(
Mine were pretty ecstatic about going back outside today! :D
