Cats most likely don't have unfulfilled fantasies to work out when choosing masquerade costumes. So if there were a feline Halloween party, you probably wouldn't see a lot of kitties dressed in tiny parochial school-girl kilts or itty-bitty cheerleader unis.
Still, this year -- after viewing two seasons of HBO's (It's not TV, it's a reason to watch rangy, gorgeous British actors wearing next to nothing) "Rome"on dvd with Male Persepective Guy, aka, my husband, Dave -- our cat, Sophia, decided she, too, would like to be swept off her paws by Marc Antony.
That may look like humiliation glowing from Sophia's penetrating gaze, but I prefer to think of it as a look as mysterious and knowing as any Cleopatra would have given her famous Roman-general luvah -- or, apparently, any of her hottie guards, if the rumors are true. You have heard those rumors, haven't you?
What are you "going as" this Hallowe'en? What's the best costume you've worn or seen?
