Sheriff Raven

I'm going show you some of the costumes I have. This was supposed to be a contest of "Who wore it best" between me and my sister Sammi. But Sammi was getting very sick when Mom & Dad got the costumes and they didn't want to put Sammi through any stress by making her wear all of them.

So I'm going to show you the costumes, and you'll have to imagine Sammi wearing them. To honor Sammi, I'm going to show the Sheriff costume first. Mom thought this one was perfect for Sammi because her only front leg was on the right side, and that would have been perfect for her to draw the revolver from the holster.  The costume was also perfect because Sammi was top kitty, so the she would have been Sammi the Sheriff who enforced all the rules  in our house.

Sammi would have been a better Sheriff, but I think I wear the Sheriff costume pretty well.Raven in Sheriff costume

 I tried and tried to get the gun out of the holster, but I couldn't do it.

Oh well, I'm a lover, not a fighter, so I decided to sit in a sunpuddle.

We miss you Sammi. You would have been a great Sheriff.

I’m not sure why kitties would take a banana into space. Maybe that’s a reference to chimps in space?

Saturday PhotoHunt - Drop (or Don't Drop)

[caption id="" align="alignnone" width="450" caption="Pom Pom Crab. Click to super-enlarge."]PomPomCrab[/caption]

This is our Pom Pom Crab. We're amazed at how big his pom poms are. The pom poms are actually anenomes that he keeps on his claws to help gather food. The crab and anenomes help each other: the the crab gives the anenomes a ride around the coral tank and the anenomes help the crab gather food. Neither the pom poms nor the crab want them to be dropped.

The Saturday PhotoHunt themed "Drop" starts here.
