The Ladies of Autumn Halloween Party

hello furriends! recently Cookie, Caramel (Ms. Floofs), and i (Meerkat) were inducted into The Ladies of Autumn (TLOA).  TLOA is a new elite feline society “celebrating the beauty and elegance of tortoiseshell, calico & torbie cats”. you simply must check out their web site.

as you may know, female tabby (striped) cats with splotches of autumnal coloring (as seen in tortoiseshell cats) are known as “torbies”. both Cookie and i are torbies, and Caramel (Ms. Floofs) is a tortoiseshell. in order to have calico, tortoiseshell, or torbie markings, a cat must have two X chromosomes. so that means that virtually all cats with these colorings are female. there will be a very rare few XXY males that can also have these colors. last year, there was a male calico cat in PAWS! his foster mother was told that only about 1 in 4000 calico cats are male.

enough science, go see my induction page! Cookie has an induction page, and so does Caramel (Ms. Floofs).

TLOA will be having a Halloween party! so we are planning to attend in costume. the male contingent of The Furry Bambinos will also be attending the party in costume. efurryone is welcome, so please join us!

here i am in my witch costume. exactly the look i was aiming for.

Cookie was unhappy about the whole costume thing, and ran around the house moaning and complaining about it. they eventually dressed her as an angel and got a good photo.

Caramel looks absolutely ridiculous in her pumpkin hat.

my boyfriend cat Padre looks absolutely dreamy as Count Dracucat.

my dorky brother Panda Bear really enjoys these photo shoots. here he is dressed as a clown. heh.

and here is Panda Bear dressed as a skeleton.

Sunny is batty, oops, i meant that he is dressed as a bat.

and Sky is an angel.

Happy Halloween, Efurrybuddy!!!

pee ess: Mom got some of our costumes for free at BlogPaws 2011. the witch dress that i am wearing, the Count Dracucat costume that Padre is wearing, and the skeleton costume that Panda Bear is wearing were all received free at BlogPaws when Mom attended a lunch sponsored by PetSmart. these costumes are part of the Martha Stewart line of pet costumes. we were not paid for our review, and all our opinions are ours. the remaining costumes Mom purchased herself, at PetSmart.

Ivy will be at the party, but mom likes her fingers where they are, so Ivy will be coming as herself. 🙂

Everyone looked so good in their costumes! And we LOVED the card. It was a big hit around my office. I hung it up on my door. Now you can tell people pictures of your cats hang at the Smithsonian.

Sorry we missed the party. We had to help mom at work. We’re her assistants and we are proud that we have never missed work. We all enjoyed the costumes in the pics, though. Happy belated Halloween!
Love, Niecy and Trish
