WHAT WE’VE BEEN UP TO:
We’ve been up to Halloween of course! We all know that you carve pumpkins for Halloween. So we decided to carve a pumpkin, with a little help from Zoe and her dad, of course. First I had to lick the pumpkin to make sure it was a good pumpkin, while I was taking a nap in Zoe’s bed.
When they were done carving the pumpkin, we had to take a good look at it.
But it was when we turned the lights off that we could see that Zoe and her dad had carved portraits of us!!!
On this side they carved me:
And on this side they carved me, notice my thick curly tail:
You may be wondering what they did with the stuff they pulled out of that pumpkin. Well, Zoe’s mom made a delicious pumpkin soup and Zoe roasted the yummy seeds:
Then we put it on the porch so that our neighbor cat Amadeus could admire the lovely portraits of his two lady friends:
And, finally, a shout out to our new viewer in Thaliand!
In Denmark the holiday of Fastelavn was celebrated with an event called slå katten af tønden (“hit the cat out of the barrel”). Historically there was a real black cat in the barrel. Nowadays the wooden barrel is full of candy. The one who knocks out the bottom of the barrel and makes all the candy spill out is the “queen of cats”. The one who knocks down the last piece of the barrel is the “king of cats”.
