Note: Link to Halloween Scratch House is a Target Affiliate Link
My human brought home a new scratcher house, and you’d think we’d be all excited about it. It’s one of those Target holiday designs — this one is the Halloween Scratch House Cat Scratcher — and it was the last one in the store. And my human was doubly thrilled because she could use a link from the Target affiliate program! (They sell out really fast, but you can order it online.) But do you think we cats were excited? No! I was considering sitting (or lying) this one out.
When Binga saw me not facing the camera, she decided maybe it was her opportunity for stardom.
Of course I couldn’t let her get away with that. So I decided I wanted to supervise after all.
Then Binga and I had an argument over who got to try it out once it was completed. Which meant my human had to assemble it without our help.
Fortunately, my human finished it and only screwed it up a little. (The scratcher inside is facing the wrong way.) Binga wanted to do the inspection.
But I was the first one to get to look inside!
I thought it was pretty cool. I could have stayed there all day.
Except for one thing.
That scratcher house was definitely not big enough for the two of us.
I did get the haunted house back. Eventually. But I do have to say, this was the worst photo shoot ever! My human said it was totally chaotic and we were not well behaved.
Ellen Pilch says
I almost bought the last one at my Target today, but I knew I was too lazy to assemble it. I am sure you will have lots of fun with yours.
Chaotic, fur sure, but a hoot fur all of your readers, MOL!!!
Dear Ms Summer and Ms Binga,
I, Marvelous am most pleased that other siblings do NOT get along! I and Jo jo get along, we even sleep on the same bed at the same time (But NO touching), and I DO get aling with Kozmo, but mostly we yell and scream and tussle. Mommy says we sound like we are killing each other.
You and Binga don’t appear to do that.
And the Haunted house looks cool! I’ve asked Mommy if she can get me one the next time she goes to the US>
Kitties Blue says
Summer, that first photo of your fluffy butt is hysterical and cute. You should have learned by now that Binga must also inspect anything new that comes into the house. That is one of the cuter holiday scratchers. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, angel Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth, Calista Jo and Cooper Murphy

MOL! Hey, at least you have some great pics for your outtake calendar for either 2018 or 2019!
Cathy Keisha says
C’mon, you guys were having fun. Sometimes that’s better than posing.
The Swiss Cats says
You made us giggle ! We think that was the purrfect photo shoot for a haunted house ! Purrs
Memories of Eric and Flynn says
It must have been the ghosts causing all the problems with the photoshoot!

* helpless laughter *
Oh my cat you two. We would LOVE one of those but they do NOT do them here in NZ isn’t that a rotten trick?
Mark's Mews says
Well, Halloween stuff can cause that.
Angel, Kirby and Max says
THat is a cool house! We have one but it is am older one and not as cute as yours!
Fraidy Cats! says

THe Island Cats says
Hey, not every photo shoot can be purrfect. Sometimes cats just wanna have fun. That’s a cool house!
Laila and Minchie says
We would say blame it on that very scary (but very cool!) Halloween scratcher!
Mickey's Musings says
Some days are just like that :/

William's Kith & Kin says
All cats are always behaved–doesn’t your human know that? We think any chaos might have been her fault!
Eastside Cats says
Summer, you and Binga are CATS…why would your human use ‘behaved’ or ‘not well-behaved’?
emma and buster says
Pretty sure your mom got one for each of you ladies.
I love the pictures! Your human sure captured your personalities perfectly.
Melissa, Mudpie & Angel Truffles says
That’s such a cute house. I decided I needed to either stop buying every one…or start adopting more kitties!
Colehaus Cats says
We just love those seasonal scratchy houses. We couldn’t tell the scratchy thing was facing the wrong way and it didn’t look off in the photos. PLUS, you two look like its alright to you… after having your tussle, that is.
MOL! We’ve had a few of those shoots, too. They’re fun for us, but not so much for our mom. Especially when she says she’s on a time crunch.
Madi and Mom says
MOLMOL this cracked us up, “I changed my mind can she leave now”
Hugs madi your bfff
Oooooo! I like dat howse!
caren gittleman says
it isn’t a bad photo shoot at all and the house is cute!! I just stopped getting those cardboard things because they always fall apart but that IS cute!
Summer Samba says
This one is actually more well built than the others – it may last a while!
Roby Sweet says
I wouldn’t be able to behave if I was getting a Halloween house either! 🙂
OMC! That made us MOL! Loved this photoshoot!
Random Felines says
holy moly – that’s a fancy one!! mom may have to run to Target. BTW – Summer we believe your house may be haunted by some tortie MOL
I think the fact it was a haunted house made both you and Binga a little “on edge” – it’s tough to have a photo shoot when you have GHOSTS all around you!!
CRAIG S. C. OKAJIMA says
Pretty Summer, I counted THREE pictures in this shoot, where we were reminded as to how fluffy and pretty ruddy-colored your tail and fur are!
I don’t know why, but when kitties peek out from inside of a door, as you are doing, that looks super cute!!
Brian Frum says
Actually it looks like you two were having fun!
Purrjamm Cats says
Awesome looking haunted house. Love the new design. I think you two were just having too much fun in this photo shoot to cooperate. Love the funny pics! Purrs
Two cats, one photoshoot. Maybe this was as good as it gets.
Toby and Leia says
That’s a pretty neat house. But… since when are we felines supposed to be well behaved? That’s news to us!
Katie Isabella says
Behaving is vastly overrated!!!
What a fun house. You have a mighty tail summer. Do you ever get called Basil brush or am I the only one old enough to remember him.?
The kitties of purring pines says
Sometimes things are chaotic….. especially when Binga is there.
Sometimes it is hard to behave
