T-13 - Great Ghostly Gatos!


Ghosts are real, oh yes they are. So are Haunted Houses. My bean has been to the Franklin Mansion in O-Hi-O, one of the most documented Haunted Houses in the world.

I have never been to a Haunted House. The closest one to me is The Tampa Theater in Tampa, Florida, which is thought to be haunted by Foster Fink Finley, a projectionist who lived and worked in the theater from 1930 to 1965. Tampa is far away, too far away to walk, so I have never been there.

You can find more Haunted Houses on line at

One Haunted House you will not find listed though is Castle Diamond, despite the fact that we have a number of ghosts haunting the building and grounds. Here are 13 of our most popular spooks:

1. Tybalt, Prince of Ghosts, might also qualify as our Phantom of the Opera, as much like Foster Fink Finley, he hangs round the auditorium and projection room here at the castle. However, he does show some great movies...when he manifests himself of course!

Howl-N-Scream,Himalayan Cat

2. Donny and Marie are sometimes seen around the ballroom area...I've heard they enjoy dancing with the stars...

Howl-N-Scream,Domestic Cat

3. Tavi of Camie's Kitties is a fun lovin' little spook, who's been seen dashing up and down the stairs and corridors chasing who knows what...

Howl-N-Scream,Siamese Cat

4. Out in the graveyard, Mickey Mantle, the ghost of a New York great, is keeping himself in shape for the 2009 baseball season...

Howl-N-Scream,Domestic Cat

5. We could not have Mickey without the hauntingly beautiful Marilyn Monroew, who loves to grace our library, reading and writing poetry.

6. In the study, we find Count Luxor, the whitest of the ghosts....

Howl-N-Scream,Exotic Shorthaired Cat

7. The pumpkin patch has provided a lot of fun for Sam Sun, who is wondering if they can carve a pumpkin in his likeness.

Howl-N-Scream,Domestic Cat

8. Seaborne of the Taylor CatSSSSS has been checking out the trick or treating around some of the neighbor's houses. Looks like he's stashed a bag of treats in the garden!

9. Speaking of treats, it seem like Vampy Victor has found a friend to give him one, which he appears to be enjoying. No wonder he has such a honeyed tongue.

Domestic Cat,Howl-N-Scream

(Be careful of him ladies, those sweet talkin' guys are the worst!)

10.: Double, double, toil and trouble, fire burn and cauldron bubble...Mistress Mushka is getting ready to cast a spell on you!

Siamese Cat,Howl-N-Scream

11. But she is not the only spellcaster to consider, as it seems like the bewitching Katrina also has her fire going and is thinking up a Kat3 curse...

Domestic Cat,Howl-N-Scream

12. Meanwhile, Bogdon of The Morning Scratch is a little to busy trying to get his paper out, so he's not too worried about either of the two.

Domestic Cat,Howl-N-Scream

13. Now normally, I'd leave you with a parting shot of myself, but for this T-13, I'm giving you a real ghost. This is Phantom, a.k.a., the one who came before me. She has passed over the bridge now. Happily, I have not noticed her haunting my house!

After all, I have quite enough problems with my meddlesome little brofur who tried to steal MY nip!

House Panther,Howl-N-Scream

(And yes, she was named for the book/musical...)

I hope you enjoyed our 13 Great Ghostly Gatos. Stop by next week for 13 Scary Monsters!

(Note: if you want to be part of one of our T-13's mail a request to diamond_cat3-at-yahoo-dot-com. If you can attach a clear photo of yourself and enclose your blog address, it would be very helpful as well. Thank you!)

MoMo said...

You really do have some awesome graphics. Love them all and look forward to the next batch.

I love high places and if you look up to the chandelier there may a grey hazy shadow. My SS used to live in a haunted house when she was little. That was the only house that her family could afford.
