Pumpkin Time

Halloween cat watches over sleeping Fargo

Bert and Mercedes have never really dealt with pumpkins before. Their aunt was kind enough to get them some organic ones. So far, after an initial inspection and chinning, the pumpkins remain unscathed. They were, however, extremely interested in the carrot chips she also provided them with and wanted to stage a competitive carrot chip eating contest.

Chasing the elusive carrot chip


  1. 4Buns are trying to eat pumpkin through the fence

  2. I tried introducing Mick to pumpkin last year--he was completely unimpressed and gave it a thorough snubbing. Carrots, on the other hand, are always welcome and quickly gobbled up.

  3. I have not tried pumpkin with my buns, but they might get a nibble this year.

    Love the headbutting shot.

  4. Hmmm. Maybe they don't like the skin, and you should cut it open for them?

    I also love the headbutting. Just like my girl!

  5. Is Mercedes trying to get the pumpkin to do some grooming?

  6. Carrots today, Pumpkin tomorrow!!!!

  7. Oooooohhhh....I wanna try pumpkin.
