I was sitting on the porch tonight, handing out candy, when Phoenix (seen below in one of his favorite haunts - the linen closet) decided to join me for a while. The cats aren't big fans of Halloween -- too much activity, too much fire, too much loudness, who knows. But Phoenix is a devoted fan of his mom, and he crept out on the porch for a few minutes to be with me.
Just then two little boys showed up.
"Nice decorations," they said. "What's the black cat for?"
Um... he lives here?
