Our Halloween Kostumes

Alla us Ballicai just entured Skeezix's Halloween Kostume Kontest, and we thought we'd show off our kostumes!

Here's Brainball, as a soldier:

Here's Dorydoo, as a skeleton punk-rock girlcat:

And here's me. I'm a leprechaun with an itchy beard:

Marilyn's a fairy godmother, but she's wearin' her kostume on her bloggie.

Here's a Brainball update: he's still doin' good and feelin' bettur. Momma was so happy cuz this mornin' he woke her up not only by tryin' to kill the lip balm on her night stand but the book she's readin', too! And he's been back to his Alpha Cat patrols and is eatin' good.

But ofur the last few days, he's bekome more resistant to takin' his meds. And since he's a big sixteen pound mancat, when he's resistant, he's RESISTANT! He don't scratch or bite, but he's furry, furry strong, and he's hard to hold efun with Momma and Daddy as a team, and efun worse, he's gotted really good at spittin' out the pills.

So here's what Momma's tryin' and it's workin' so far. The v.e.t. tolded Momma it would be okeydokey to crush up Brainball's meds in foodies. And what Momma's doin' is crushin' his pills and givin' him his doses in cream cheese. Cream cheese is a purrfect consistency to get meds all mixed up in.

But Momma and Daddy still have to team up on Brainball to give him his syringe medisun and his eyedroppies. So efurryone send 'em good luck vibes -- and "take yur meds like a mancat" vibes to Brainball! Thankies so much.

I'm glad that Brainball is doing better. :) Continuing to send purrs out to him.

You all look very cute in your Hallowe'en costumes. :)

Gretchen said...

Brainball! Your a mancat, take your medicine like a macho soldiercat! That's an order, Mister!
But I'm also glad you're feeling better. Resisting means you're coming back to life.

Dorydoo, you look great with all your bones showing.

Mao, Hah! Irish? I thought you were Siamese!

LOL, you're all very cute in your costumes.

Warm snuggles to you all...G

Karen Jo said...

Those are all very good costumes. Brainball makes a perfect soldier. Dorydoo looks kinda scary. MaoMao looks cute as a leprechaun. Brainball, take your meds like the big, tough mancat you are, hear me? I am so glad that you are feeling well enough to put up a fight about it, but you need to finish your medicine so you can get all well again.

Daisy said...

Those are some very great costumes, and very fitting to your personalities, too!

Brainball, please be good and take your medicines like a big mancat!

We love you costumes! I bet that beard is ichy! I'm really good at being resistant too. (I'm 18 pounds of mancat!) Mom says she's never seen a cat spit pills like me. Sometimes they end-up across the room or just in fur somewhere. hehehe

Earl Grey said...

Those are great costumes. You look really cute, Dorydoo.

Brainball, I had to have eye drops, too, and it was no fun for Mom and Dad. heh heh Keep taking your medicines and try to be good for the eye drops. Mom kept telling me that the more I fought it and the more medicine that got wasted, the longer I'd have to take them. Grrr. Hopefully, you don't have too much left.

Donny and Marie and Casey said...

Gurreat costumes! We wish mommy would dress us least in photoshop or something similar on the Mac so we can enter the contest too!


Brainball, I really look up to you. I'm strong but learning to be stronger every day. Can you teach me how to spit out pills???




Don't fergit to take yur medicines! Those are good fur yu, even though I don't like medicines either.

All of you have great costumes. I don't know who I would chose they are all purrfect!


Boy said...

The Furry Fighter said...

good to hear you feeling better brainball - come and get your award from my bloggie! x

Unknown said...

What great costumes! Mao Mao you look very cute as a leprechan and Brainball you look very mancatly in your soldier uniform! Just think a couple of weeks ago Brainball would have been wearing a evening gown with those combat boots! Oh, that is funny......ha, ha, ha......

The Crew said...

As one hefty guy (who hates taking medicine) to another, I know exactly how you feel, Brainball. But this is for the best and if it makes you feel better, you gotta do it!! So, stop struggling and take your meds.

Brainball must be feeling better if he is resisting taking his medicine.

Your costumes are fantabulous!

None said...

I love the costumes! I have to try and convince my servants to do the same for me. I heard a story that leprechauns chase rainbows because at the bottom of them there is a pot of temptations... If I find me a leprechaun I'm following him for sure!!!


Sunny's Mommy said...

Those are very nice entries. I especially like Brainball's. He looks like a studly mancat in that uniform.

I hope Brainball starts taking his medicine better. It's good that you can crush the pill up and give it to him in food.

Kimo and Sabi said...

Furry good costumes!

Fat Eric said...

My mum wants to thank you for the purrs and good thoughts after her Very Bad Day on Wednesday. She has recovered slightly now and her colleagues bought her some chocolates to show their support. The repercussions of The Incident are still going on and one of her class has been expelled from the school and that is a Good Thing.

Jack, Persephone, Tenzing and Lancelot said...

Those are good costumes and so is Marilyn's! Though I would put the bitey on the itchy beard if I were you, MaoMao!

We're glad you're doing so well, Brainball! Are you well enough to come to the party?

And Dorydoo, will you be one of our birthday Guests of Honour?

We can't wait to see you all!
