After lying low for a long time, Teddy Bear The Talking Porcupine is back with his second Halloween video in two days. Tedster, save some room for candy corn later tonight, dude!

A Black Cat On Halloween? Sure, Why Not.

[Since I can't haz a Kit-Kat, I'll take a tube of Petromalt in my pumpkin tonight. Is that asking so much? Now, get outta my way.]

Ruuun, Pumpkin! Ruuunnn!

Every year on Halloween Dogzilla rises up from under the dining table in search of pumpkins because, you just can’t keep a gourd dog down. (No sir!)

Tonight’s Howl-O-Ween

[Nuff-Disclosure Alert Right Up Front: -No chocolate- was fed to these puppehs. -Ed]

You know how sometimes on Halloween you get repeat customers? You gotta watch out for ‘em. Especially the ones with four legs.

(Note from the YT poster Busy Bee Dogs: “Both dog actors were discovered on Petfinder.com, where they were adopted by a family. They now raise awareness for pet adoption primarily from high risk animal shelters.)

Did Someone Say “Halloween?” We Can Do That!

We’ve received a lot of terrific Halloween photos. (Thank you!) Here’s another bunch of Little Monsters!

“My Sphynx kitteh Toothless had a tail injury and had it removed. Fortunately it has provided us with some costume advantages, like a Bun at Easter and a Clown for Halloween! Photos by me and I accept your Terms and Conditions as outlined on your website.” -Shonna O.

“Our pup is in a Halloween contest on Dogster.com. If we win, we’ll donate the prize to the local animal shelter (Dakin Pioneer Valley Animal Shelter, Springfield, MA.) If Quincy Bean is posted on Cute Overload, I’m sure she’ll get lots of new votes!! Best wishes, Bryn S.”

I’ll Have A Cold Pear Juice And One Kitteh, Please

Yesterday, we did a story about Owl Cafés in Japan. So now, just in time for Halloween, we’ve got a story about the first All-Black Cat Café in The Big J. It’s called the Cat Café Nekobayaka, located in the city of Himeji, Miyagi Prefecture.

[If owlz & kittehs aren't quite your style--there are always PENGUINS.]

You go to these Cat Cafés, and pay a fee to have something to drink, and pet the kittehs. Can. You. Imagine.

According to RocketNews24, “The admission fee is 1,000 yen (US$10.16) for the first half hour and 500 yen for every half hour beyond that.”

They’ve been open for two years, but this location held a grand reopening to go all-black.

[I'm very small, very small indeed. I think I will need a Halloween Buddy to come along with me so the other kids don't try and steal all my candy. Will you come with me?]

“Senorita Bonita (now there’s a magical name) celebrates Dia de Los Muertos! She is such a wonderful bunny. We adopted her from the Humane Society of Scott County after she had been returned. She was incredibly frightened at first, and now is a loving, gentle bunny who leads a happy life with the rest of our warren.” Thanks to Cuteporter extraordinaire Oliver Williams, who had to be awfully fast when Bonita struck the proper pose.
