Actually I don’t have to do my “pretty please” face at all to get my parents to “cooperate” – they’re great at reading me and my body language and eye contact messages. Yesterday I inundated them with “don’t forget to carve a cat pumpkin for me” vibes….I only did that because usually Mom has brought home the chosen pumpkin by now from the pumpkin place (wherever THAT is!) and it’s sitting on our front porch waiting to be carved. I keep checking out the front door and it’s NOT THERE. I think they’re going out today to get it. They kind of have to go today since Halloween is tomorrow. It’s not snowing any more (we had snow and sleet all day yesterday but hardly any of it stuck….yippeeee) so they have no excuse.
For those of you who have followed the last week or so of my blog postings about Halloween and costumes, etc., you will be happy to know that my Mom decided NOT to get me one. Costume that is. Just my Halloween scarf which I can handle wearing for short periods of time. Whew! I skated through that little crisis pretty well. That face as seen in the photo above worked…..again.
I’ll be sure and have Mom take a photo of the cat pumpkin so I can share with you. I bet I’m the only cat in the whooooooooole neighborhood who gets their very own cat pumpkin to surprise the little kiddies tomorrow night when they visit!
