Yesterday I started my Halloween decoration and of course Rosie as she is a very helpful cat assisted me with fervour. The big spider intrigued her especially, but then she noticed that the little witches had a broom !

Of course she needed it for cleaning purposes probably and stole it from the witch.
She inspected the little thing carefully

before she took it to the commun basket to play with it in there. In the afternoon Mr. Gattino found the little broom in his room and asked me if I had put it there so that he could clean !

A few pictures from Rosie's efficient help.

I thought poor Rosie shouldn't clean the whole house alone, so I gave the broom to Arthur

but he only sniffed at it and then looked disdainful away. Household is nothing for men he probably thought !

I see Halloween and orange all over, maybe I should get into it somehow, lol!
Love the little broom, I have one to clean the surroundings of the fire place. Rosie is such a cute helper!

Wow, spooky...I love your site. You always have such a great looking site.

It's cute how Rosie helps with the housework. I've got a little broom like that with the witches costume for the bears, but Gretchen doesn't bother it. It would probably mean that I'd expect a little help from her.

Your site looks pretty cool and scary!
Who cleaned up the rest of the house in the end?

You have reminded me that I too need to get out my Halloween decor! I will do that today...new treats for the cats. I am surprised Rosie hasn't torn that little broom to shreds. I hope you have fun with your decorations and babies....I always thought Haloween and cats go hand in hand.

BTW...the photo of you in the orange shirt is striking! Very nice!

I love all the pictures of the adventures of the little witch's broom. I think it's interesting that Rosie liked it so much, but it didn't inteest Arthur at all.

Thank you for your kind words. It is depressing, but all the support from my friends in the Cat Blogosphere has been a big help. The limericks are coming back, but may be sporadic for a while.

We had to stop by and say hi when we saw that your name is Gattina. We are American cats living in Italy because our darn human fell in love with an Italian. We love it in Italy.

Your paintings are just WONDERFUL! Complementi!
