Halloween

If a Black Cat Dresses Up as Pennywise, Is That Somehow… Good Luck?

Happy #Willoween2017, everyone!

Last year, a relatively unknown black cat named Willow the Squishy Cat launched into the annals of viral internet fame when she debuted a Halloween costume that was (ahem) catnip for the Instagram generation: The Avo-CAT-O. (Or Guaca-MEOW-Le if you prefer.)

The adorable rescue—who used to be a mother cat for a breeder who was also a hoarder (yes, you read that correctly)—is now living a rather cushy life as a social media star. She currently boasts almost 33K devout followers (including our very own husband, who shows us Willow’s posts every single day even though we follow her too [calm down, Jeff]), and she even has t-shirts on Society 6 with her likeness.

But what many people don’t realize is that Willow celebrates Halloween all month long (Avo-CAT-o was just a drop in the candy bucket, friends!). Yep, every single day in October, the smush-faced black cat debuts a brand-new homemade costume as part of a little celebration known as #Willoween! There are 13 lucky (for us) days left 'til Halloween so who knows what magic awaits. Here's a recap of the costumes thus far:
