It's October and there's witchery in the air ... so why not join the 'Siamese cats at Halloween' party?
The days of pumpkins, cauldrons, broomsticks, cobwebs and witches' hats are nearly upon us, stores are filling up with Candy Corn and other Halloween goodies, and the kids are getting excited.
And why should Siamese cat lovers miss out? Perhaps a little surprisingly there are any number of designs specifically related to Siamese cats at Halloween so here's a collection of some of the best seasonal gifts, Siamese cat decorations and artwork from some of our favorite artists.
To lead us into the spirit of the season, let's start with a 'dark and stormy night' (or, to be truthful, a starry one where all the stars are fireflies!) and this little Siamese
cat and his Jack O'Lantern pumpkin, beautifully depicted by AmyLyn Bihrle.
The image above is from artist AmyLyn's 2024 calendar, Siamese Cats in Art, which you can find for sale at print-on-demand store Zazzle.
Our next piece is a key ring (although it would also be lovely as a charm for a handbag or cat carrier) - a delightful design from Siamese cat artist Suzanne Le Good.
Made of metal, heavy, solid, and measuring 3 1/2 inches high (including the split ring), Suzanne has included a tiny print of her Halloween painting 'October Moon' in the picture window (1 3/4 inches high).
The print features an elegant Siamese cat sitting on a windowsill looking out on a starry night, with nearby candle-lit pumpkins. The stars are made from tiny silver glitter specks.
We return to Suzanne Le Good's work below, but before we do, here's something a little different - a Halloween gift card. This 'Cat Surprise Gift Launcher' card, made by GoldinGreetings and available on Etsy, has a very cute Siamese on the front with seasonal spiders and pumpkins, and arrives with small Halloween paper treats inside it.
Our next find is a collection of spooky Siamese cats dressed up in Halloween costumes as ghosts and witches with, of course, pumpkins galore.
This set of 16 images (four shown here) is available as a digital download from NixPrint on Etsy and is perfect for Halloween-themed projects, party invitations and similar items for Siamese cat lovers of all ages.
Our next two items have a clothing theme, starting with this appropriately pumpkin-colored t-shirt for kids of all ages, featuring a cartoon Siamese kitty replete with witches, bats and Jack O'Lanterns.
I particularly loved this orange one but the shirt is available in a huge variety of colors and sizes, from FantasiaTheStudio on Etsy.
While not specifically designed for Halloween, I loved this cozy autumn-themed sweatshirt with its beautiful cat, falling leaves and (of course!) pumpkins. Just the thing for snuggly nights indoors as the evenings get darker and the weather cools. Available in seven colors and a variety of adult sizes from LotusSquare on Etsy.
Returning to Suzanne Le Good's work, our next offering is a spooky kitchen door sign. Featuring seal and blue Siamese 'witches' sporting (rather crumpled!) pointed hats, the two little Meezers below are cooking up a storm, preparing spells and potions for Halloween in their bubbling cauldron. The cauldron is decorated with gold, red and purple glitter.
This sign has sticky pads on the back for fixing to a flat surface, but if you wanted to turn it into a hanging sign you could always punch a hole at the top and add some ribbon.
I do hope you've enjoyed this short walk through our virtual pumpkin patch, and admired all our lovely Siamese cats at Halloween. Have fun whatever you're doing this year and if you're trick-or-treating, stay warm and safe out there!
