Protesting The Guest Policy

Can you believe we weren’t allowed to greet any of the costumed little humans last night? We’re protesting the guest policy of Chez Herd.

But it's not fair! - protesting the guest policy
But it’s not fair!

Normally, the only people who ring our doorbell deliver packages to us. That’s of limited interest to us, except for a few rare exceptions. Last night, though, dozens of little humans dressed up in fanciful costumes and rang our doorbell. Then—get this—the Hu-Dad gave them treats. Them and not us! And we couldn’t greet them with the Siberian pounce. In fact, we were required to stay in Hu-Dad’s study with those doors closed. So, yes, Roscoe was protesting this inexplicable guest policy.

    I think Roscoe wanted socialize.

    Hope the Herd got their treats for being so good. The Siberian Death Scream is always good on Halloween.

    Yes I agree-Roscoe should have been given a Halloween treat!!! BUT do understand NOT being able to do the Siberian pounce on the little visitors!

Our winter may have been mild so far, but, like much of the east coast, we had a little snow this week. And so we had a little fun.
