Happy 3 days after Halloween!

This is my friend’s pumpkin. She did a kickass job and got a lot of compliments from trick-or-treaters!

My pumpkin looks pretty awesome in a regular picture…

But when lit…eh, not as awesome. This was my first ever try at that fancy-pants carving where you don’t carve all the way through. I didn’t hollow it out enough.

I actually have quite a few more pumpkin things to share from October, but I was side tracked on Halloween by this pretty thing:

While I was photographing the pumpkins in their natural habitat, she wandered up on our porch, rubbing things like she owned the place. This was clearly someone’s pet, but there weren’t any tags or anything, so we decided to take her inside for the night.

We posted a bunch of stuff online to try to find the owner, and set her up with some food, water, and a litterbox. We have three other cats, so we had to keep her separate from everyone else. She was pretty sad about that and made very cute and sad meows when we left :(

The next morning, I took her to the vet to check and see if she had a microchip (she didn’t.) Fortunately, later that day her owner contacted us and they were happily reunited. The end!
