Does This Make Me Look…

[Thank you all for the positive feedback on Quint’s painting experiment last week. We’re in process of setting up shop where he can share his art. More information coming mid-November!]

Maxx’s ever-lovin’ Busy Bee here. Happy Halloween Day!

Everyone knows I’m the best looking bee around. Sure, I’ve been dragged and tossed and chewed and dunked in the water bowl by my Mancat Maxx more times than I can count. But let’s not forget all the hugging and snuggling I get too. Makes all the ratty fur and washing machine baths worth it, in my book.

Well, it’s that time of year again and soon, the doorbell will be ding-donging off the wall! So many fun costumes! Here at home, it’s time to see which Colehaus Cat might rival me for the position of Best-Looking Busy Bee!

The bee suit is laid out, ready for business. I hear we’ve got some new contenders this year who’ll be trying on the official Busy Bee Suit. Let’s get to it and size up their efforts!

First up, this little guy. Sorry, I didn’t catch the name. Cute, long legs, giant ears. When he fills out, he might pose a challenge. I don’t think I have anything to worry about for a few years. Look at him! He’s practically swimming in that suit! Good luck next year! NEXT!

Could anyone look more dejected than our next entry? Really, sweetheart, chin up. It’s not that bad, toots. Sure, she’s not a bee; she’s a cat in a bee costume (like technically, I’m a bear in a bee costume – WHATEVER!) Okay, someone get her out of here…NEXT!

Oh, no, no, no. Him again?? Did he learn nothing from last year’s loss? Drats! Nice fit, ears almost in position, too bad that stinger is hidden. Well, all I can say is it’s a durned good thing he’s my favorite buddy and that he refused to sit still long enough for a winning vote. That bit of slimming down since last spring really suits him well. Couldn’t have happened to a better cat. Whew! A close call. So close. But it looks like I’m Top Bee for the third year in a row! Whooooo!

Until next time, America, keep your bees happy! Happy Candy Corn day! Busy Bee out!

  18. You are so much more patient than I am. I would never ever let the mom dress me . . . OK you got me . . . she dressed me but not without a fight on her hands.
    Thanks so much for coming to the Tabby Cat Club Halloween/Fall party. I hope you made it home safely. Remember what happened at the party stays at the party.

  19. Mowzers, you guys let them do that to you?!? Allie would’ve protested cuz it wasn’t PINK and I woulda protested just on principle. SRSLY!

    Maxwell: But…I kinda think you guys were cute…
