Cats as Food: Kitties in Costumes

Halloween is this week and while we're sure we'll see many dogs looking sheepish in their little devil ears and angel wings, we've thought of something even more humiliating...

See, while dogs will grin and bear being made into a laughing stock of the community in exchange for a rawhide treat and a scratch behind the ears, cats are way too independent and egotistical to allow humans a free pass at making a mockery of their precious whiskers.

Which is why it's all the more fun to dress up a cat (just beware the scratching and biting that can ensue).

Don't get us wrong...we love cats. 

We just think that if we have to clean their littler box, the least we can do is laugh at them behind their backs.

"If that damn chihuahua next door so much as snickers at me...he's ground chalupa meat."


Fluffy never thought that those reincarnation stories could possibly be true. Until now.

"Wow! That's some mighty strong catnip!"

"I never thought that Can I Haz Cheezburger cat was even remotely funny, by the way."

"Ummm...look. Let's make a deal here. You don't light the stove and I won't leave any more dead lizards on your pillow."

"What the f**k are you looking at dachshund? At least I can take this stupid getup off at the end of the day."
