It’s just about that time of the year ladies and gentlemen! Halloween will upon us this Tuesday night and hopefully you have your costumes ready to go. For me, it is always hard to narrow down my choices to just one great costume. I change my mind every other day and this year is no exception. There are just too many incredible costumes to choose from. Most years, I get very creative and make the entire costume from scratch, which I love to do, but this year is a big “time issue” for me. So I did the unthinkable and bought my costume but I gotta tell you, once I did, I didn’t think about it again and it gave me lots of free time to do other things.
Living in the heart of Dundarave, I’m not expecting to see any outlandish costumes but that does not deter me from going crazy on Halloween. I have creepy tombstones with rats and black crows in my windows and a great big pumpkin with a wig and hat on. There is a ghost on my door and a skeleton hanging in my kitchen, so yes I am ready to greet Halloween head on.
I have a wonderful cat named Harley D and he is my first male cat. I have always had sweet female cats but I decided to take the plunge and get a little boy this time. He will be 4 years old on November 15th and is a real bad-ass little guy; I should say BIG guy as he is almost 17 pounds now.
I tried on my costume last night and he went crazy, so I knew I had made the right choice.
One of my all time favourite places to go, to find the perfect costume, will always be Value Village. Not only are they reasonably priced but the staff are fantastic when it comes to helping you. They really know their stuff!!! They have adults and kids costumes that will make your head spin they are so fabulous…..

I just rescued a little brother from the West Vancouver SPCA named Forrest for Harley and he is the most loving little guy in the whole world. It took a few months now but he and Harley D are now best friends. Visit your local SPCA; it is a life changing visit.
