The Cat Chronicles Day 28: Trick or Treat

Ah, so warm…

I’m not sure what is going on, but the small two-leggers are acting quite strangely today.

Their new winter coats look rather unattractive…

…And rather than mewl to their own toms and queens for food, they are begging every two-legger in sight.

Hey, you’re the same small two-legger that was hanging around the little one the night the fire monsters attacked! I never forget a smell! And I thought you were ugly before you got that new coat…

Heheheh… ready for another pounce?

Hey! Wait! Where are you going! …How rude, running off before I even have a chance to pounce on him!

No doubt he remembered my fine kitty strength and was frightened away. That’s right, you keep running, little two-legger with the ugly coat!

Oh! Is that… that little one? Her new coat has grown in as well! Tabby-striped, I see. I approve!

Hi little one!

Mrahahaha… I don’t think she was expecting me. She made sounds like a dying bird!

Ah, that felt good… perhaps I’ve finally mastered the perfect bird-hunting technique! A swift and silent aerial tree launch!

She was undeterred, however.

I don’t understand, little one. You’re the wrinkly one’s kin, she’d give you a whole food dish if you’re hungry!

What are the two-leggers giving out that has all the little ones so determined? Whiskers Temptations? If that’s the case, maybe I should go scratching on strange doors and begging…

…But, a warm den and a warm lap are even more tempting.

Coming up…

Aaah… wrinkly one, don’t forget…

Aaaaaaaaaah… that’s the spot! Good two-legger.

Spending Spooky Day watching horror movies with a cat in your lap… Rose is living the high life, as far as I’m concerned. Though I couldn’t help but be disturbed by the horror movies she was watching… Apparently the killer was a Mexican Wrestler, and he and the P.I. fell in love at the end? O_o

This was my first try at using custom poses. While I’m glad I now have the knowledge on how to use them, I don’t think I’m a giant fan of them myself… mainly because my Sims get so terribly glitched out whenever I have to use moveobjects on on them. Shadow got locked up so badly that I couldn’t even use resetsim to unlock him, and had to wait for Nraas’s Overwatch to finally find his stuck self and free the poor kitty. So due to the time involved and the overall game glitchiness I get from using them, I wouldn’t expect to see them all that often. I definitely have a whole new appreciation for those authors that compose their stories entirely out of custom poses… how do they even keep their games running doing that? Heh.

In any event, since a librarian is pretty meticulous about archiving her material and citing her sources, if anyone else is interested in these kitty poses, I believe the ones I used in this part were OrangeMitten’s Antics Pose Pack for Cats and Kitty Pose Pack, and Shades Cattery’s Spooky Cat poses which can be found here (along with some other fun cat poses I’ll probably use at some point). One More Slot Please was needed as well. I wasn’t feeling up to the task of finding a pose for a child looking piss-pants terrified at having a cat flying at their head, so you’ll just have to use your imagination there.

    Every time I see it, I can imagine him thinking, “Huzzah!” :)
