A Totally True Tale for Halloween (It’s a DOOZIE)

Kittehs!  Jasper here.  Oh do I have a Halloween tail for you…
It’s a very SAD TAIL so BE WARNED!!  You’ll need tissues!!! 
 This happened on Thursday night of last week

Momz and Dadz were going out when 
Momz saw Black Kitteh's snaggly face in road
Our beautiful Black Kitteh had been hit by a car!

It was very gruesome.  Dadz said he was killed instantly.
Momz was crying and they decided they had to bury him, so Dadz got his shovel and scraped him up (after he got run over a few more times). 
Sorry kittehs, but it was BAD

They found one of his very favorite places in our backyard and Dadz started
digging the final resting spot for our beautiful Black Kitteh.
That’s when I came home.

Momz saw me and she was crying. 
She said “Jasper!!  I know, it’s so sad!”
And I was like “What?!”  “What??!!”
But they wouldn't let me snoopervise so I was put in the house. 
I didn't like that.

Momz called the neighbors to tell them the bad news
 and they brought axes and spades
 because our ground is packed so hard

Finally, Dadz lowered Black Kitteh into his final resting spot
and tucked him in.
And that’s when our beloved Black Kitteh came home!!
(We are not even kidding)
Yes, he's really alive!!!
Oh there was so much relief!  And happiness!  
And oh my, who’s black kitty did we just bury???

Black Kitteh:  The reports of my death have been greatly exaggerated!!
By Saturday we knew. 

My Pawrents put the word out and a neighbor found them
 and asked if they had seen his old black cat who was missing since Thursday (so sad!).

He had been ill and wasn't eating very well.  He had been to the V-E-T and they were terribly worried about him and were on their way to the Pound to see if he was there. 
He crossed the street all the time but was slower now. 
He was hit just 4 houses away from his home.
His name was Alexander, and he got a lovely burial.

(this stepping stone will mark his resting spot)
it says:
Old Kitty
Crossed Royal
Landed Here

Somehow, all the black kittehs and orange & white kittehs
end up at our house,one way or another.

I'm glad we get to be the final caretakers for Alexander Kitty.
May he R.I.P.

Pee Ess.  Today is Halloween.
I decided not to come home this morning because, we'll, I'm a cat.

The Black Kittehs are in the house for their safety.  

Black Kitteh is protesting loudly.

Sandi Claws is staying low
(she's still smarting over the hurricane named after her)

and Junior, who has moved in,
was the only one willing to put on a Halloween costume.

 Yeah, I saw those costumes, which is why I'm staying away today.

Be safe Kittehs!!


  1. You're right Jasper, it was a very sad story, but we are so glad that Black Kitteh is safe and that your mom and dad took such good care of poor Alexander, but they did right by him. We guess it was as good an ending as it could be. Purrs
    Harry, Dexter and Tipp

  2. Awwww poor sweet Alexander. We are so sorry.

    Have a peaceful Halloween!! Take care

  3. Oh my goodness! Poor Alexander, we feel sorry for his parents.
    Happy halloween, and please, go home! Being scared of costumes is no excuse!

  4. What a sad story! Poor Alexander! We are glad Black Kitteh is okay, but Halloween is a very scary time for cats. Jazzper, come home!

  5. What a story! I imagine the surprise when you saw Black Kitteh, sorry for Alexander, but I confess that I was relieved.

  6. Oh you made our hearts stop! SO glad Black Kitty's safe.

  7. Poor kitty Alexander... RIP!!!
    We're glad it wasn't black kitteh!

    PS. We think Jasper didn't come home because he doesn't like junior :(
