“[It’s] like family now, so I’ll be keeping it around all year.”

Roswell is very social, especially for a cat, and absolutely loves making new friends. Recently he met someone who became his best friend almost instantly — and it definitely caught his family by surprise.

Roswell’s mom was out shopping when she spotted a skeleton cat Halloween decoration and decided to buy it. Halloween is her favorite holiday and she loves to decorate, and what better way to do it than with something that pays tribute to her feline friends. She took the cat home and was deciding where to put it, but thought it might be fun to show it to Roswell first to see how he would react to it.Lindsey Kuzmin

And just like that, a friendship was formed.

“He immediately ran right up to it and started sniffing it,” Lindsey Kuzmin, Roswell’s mom, told The Dodo. “Within a few minutes, he was licking it like he was trying to groom it and kept brushing up against it. I wasn’t expecting him to be quite so friendly with the skeleton cat right away, but he absolutely loves it.”Lindsey Kuzmin

Now, Roswell hangs out with his skeleton friend every day. His mom keeps it in her office, which is where he spends most of his time during the day, so it’s always near him, keeping him company.

“He’ll walk by it and brush up against it like he’s saying hi, and will sometimes give it kisses too,” Kuzmin said. Lindsey Kuzmin

The skeleton cat also joins Roswell when he goes for rides in his stroller, which is one of his favorite activities ever, and he loves having his new little buddy by his side.Lindsey Kuzmin

Roswell’s sister, Leela, was not as enamored with the skeleton cat when she first met it, but Roswell has helped her come around a little. After all, he wants all of his loved ones to get along.Lindsey Kuzmin

When Kuzmin bought the skeleton cat, she had no idea that it would become such a fixture in the house, and now, it’s so much more than just a Halloween decoration.

Family Finds Dog ‘Frozen’ Among Their New Halloween Decorations

Meet Maverick— a big-hearted dog who loves making friends with people and pets alike.

“He is a super sweet dog. Super loving,” Lilly Ann Flores, Maverick’s owner, The Dodo.

However, when it comes to Halloween figurines, Maverick’s not taking any chances.Lilly Ann Flores

The other day, Maverick was at home with his family in Texas when he unexpectedly caught sight of some slightly eerie new arrivals out front — a creepy(-ish) collection of cardboard-cutout cats.

Turns out, the evening prior, Flores had decided to put the cats there as decorations for Halloween. It wasn’t meant to be particularly scary, of course, but Maverick apparently hadn’t gotten the message.

Upon spotting the cutout cats, Maverick froze like a statue:

“When I turned around, he was standing frozen like that,” Flores said. “I died laughing. I’ve never seen him do that before”

It’s impossible to say for certain exactly what was going through Maverick’s head at the time, but it does appear that he is actually “pointing” — an instinct some pups display when trying to alert their owners to something of interest.

In other words, Maverick was likely just making sure his family was aware of the creepy cat situation going on out front.Lilly Ann Flores

Fortunately, the cardboard cutouts posed no real threat. It’s just spooky season, that’s all.

“I think [the cats] just caught him off guard,” Flores said.

Regardless, Maverick’s family still has his back against scary things, real or imagined — just as he has theirs.
