Une fête magnifique

Full Moon Hallowe’en is over. And this time is the saddest of times, because we have a whole year to wait until the next Hallowe’en and NINETEEN YEARS until the next full moon one.

But what a time was had. (And it’s just as well because, as from 5th November, the axe will be falling on the U.K. and we will be locked down for a month.)

Oscar the dog’s folks have always been astonishingly good sports when it comes to festivities, but on Saturday night they surpassed even their own high standards by coming to our barbecue dressed as Louis Catorze. Oui, Mesdames et Messieurs: all three of them, DRESSED AS CATORZE. Dog Mamma and Dog Sister even had fangs. And the Dog Family also brought a “Pin the Tail on Louis” game, which was a close competition but Cat Daddy just edged me out by a few pesky millimetres, making him the overall winner on the night:

An excellent likeness: chapeau to Dog Sister.

We really couldn’t have wished for a more perfect night: a sumptuous Hallowe’en barbecue cooked by Cat Daddy, great fun with the Dog Family’s quiz and entertainment, all within the confines of The Rules and, unbelievably, no misbehaviour from Catorze. (This was due in part, I’m sure, to the fact that we weren’t repeatedly opening our door to trick-or-treaters and therefore his opportunities to cause trouble at The Front were severely limited.) However, next Hallowe’en is also set to be a special one because it coincides with the end of British Summer Time. So we will have an extra hour of the best day in the world.

And, would you believe, Sa Maj is already fully booked for the whole of the 2021 Hallowe’en weekend, and has been for some time. It’s a sad day when your cat is more popular than you but, at the same time, we’re used to it.

The Dog Family made us this delicious chocolate torte, based on Catorze’s two favourite activities: catching rodents and bringing about the apocalypse.

    1. Would you believe he was barely around, due to being off on Important Full Moon Cat Business. He did stop by for a quick bonsoir but then buggered off again! Things to do, mischief to make … 🤣🤣🤣

  1. What a celebration ! And the lockdown part deux is to begin on Guy Fawkes Day ? That may be another thrill fest !

    Maybe over the next few days you will get some inkling of what Catorze was off doing while you partied ?
