Bad kitty and pumpkin tree!

Today while I was sewing, I heard a strange noise and went to look. This is what I found, someone was a very bad kitty. There was a mocking bird sitting on the porch rail and I think he was on the porch and Moki made a lunge for him, ugh. The funny thing is, Moki was just sitting there staring at the hole, he had no intentions of going outside.


I found this black tree at Jo anns, for a couple of dollars so couldn't resist. Today I decided I needed to make something to put on it, so this is what I came up with. I made funny faces to look like vintage pumpkins and used a green yarn for the stem hanger. Then I got tired of making those, so thought a few leaves would be easier to fill up more area. I took a photo here, since it has more light. I put it on my furkin with an old lace doily. The eyes are mini buttons that you can get in the craft stores.

Lol! This happened to my screen once ... blamed my cats, until ... I saw the little raccoon paw prints all over the porch! BTW, I love the ornies you made for your little Halloween tree.

Yep, the price we pay for our 4 legged family, but they are worth it!! :-) Love the pumpkin tree.

Ok. I don't think this was Moki's fault. That black bird was such a tease, just trying to get Moki into trouble. Darn bird, what a trouble maker.

Very cute and bad Moki...I had that same tree in my hand today and put it down when I saw the check out line of about 15 people. May have to go back now.

I would like to defend Moki on this! I think the real scenario is that the BIRD tried to break into the home and Moki had to defend your home!! He was just standing guard!! The ornies are adorable!!
