The cat was by far the best out of the three, but this cat was the neediest cat I’ve ever met.

So Halloween snuck up on you AGAIN this year and you have no idea what you’re going to wear to Bethany’s Halloween Costume party next weekend. You already know half of the attendees will be dressed up as a twerking Miley Cyrus and the other half will be dressed up as Gravity astronauts or something like that.
