I’m excited to say Koal had a great first Halloween. He was so very excited as I was decorating for Halloween this year. He found it so interesting along with all the new smells to explore.
As I was unfolding large spider’s legs, Koal thought it was a game. Each leg I unfolded Koal, he played with it and batting it with his adorable paw. When I was able to unfold all the spider’s legs and I stood the spider up on the living room floor the first thing Koal thought of doing was to walk right underneath it and as he walked under it he pawed the legs. It was cute!
I set up a Halloween scene in the living room near a wall. Koal had fun getting into everything as I decorated and set up the scene for Halloween. After I finished that night, Koal found a nice cozy place to lay down and sleep. It was one of his favorite spots to sleep, the Halloween scene and he laid down on a white sheet which was underneath the spiders that I displayed there among other creepy things too. It just fit the scene when Koal laid there and slept. It was very sweet watching him sleep there every day.
All that excitement and brand new things he had never seen before was overwhelming for him but so much fun getting into everything too. Koal told Darlene it was so much fun I hope you do it again soon! Haha!
I had said to my boyfriend, you know what would make my Halloween that much better? I said if I could only get a picture of Koal by the pumpkins it would make my whole Halloween!! It took me pretty much over a half a month to get pictures of Koal laying in front of the pumpkins. When koal finally let me take the picture he was posing so good for me.
This Halloween I bought four tiny pumpkins and I wrote on each pumpkin by paint every cat that I was blessed with so far in my life including Koal. I do this every year! So I wrote hugs, rascal, Milo, and Koal. It truly means a lot to me to do this every year. It was sad this month though because it was Milo’s birthday on Oct. 11th. She would have been 14 years old this year.
I do go to counselling to talk about the loss of Milo. I just can’t get over certain things that Milo and I use to do together and certain things I truly and strongly miss too.
But otherwise I’m doing all right. I had gone to craft class on Oct. 16th and my friends and I decorated pumpkins together which was a lot of fun. And on Oct. 29th I went to a Halloween dance with friends. I even dressed up for this event. I haven’t dressed up in years for Halloween.
Then I have been going bowling every Friday night at Ledge View Lanes with friends. Otherwise I have been busy with appointments like crazy for too long, along with trying to find my best a job through DVR services but otherwise I love to play with Koal.
He is my world to me. I love him sooo much! He getting big now since the day that I brought him home. He is so loving and caring and such a bundle of joy to my heart. Somehow, no matter how bad a day I may have, Koal finds a way to make me smile and laugh every day!!
I hope all of you had a wonderful Halloween this year too! God bless and take care.
