Superman and the GIANT black cat

Jesse was just six months old and we had run across these novolty pajamas in a kids catalog. For Halloween, we simply pulled the cape out of the drawer and snapped it on. Remember, he was still crawling except when he was being carried.

We walked him around to the three or four neighbors then stopped by both Grandparents house to show him off. He had no clue what was going on but the rest of us all fell in love with that cute little kid one more time.

One small and one GIANT black catThis was Barney's last big Halloween, as Jesse quickly became the center of attention each October. And that was just fine with him. He had no interest whatsoever in showing off on his 'big day' each year, spending it, honestly, UNDER the bed.

His traumas had just recently started. He had always been anxious around small children and he developed several nervous related problems as Jesse started to get mobile. The vet was evasive because many families will give up their aged cat if it doesn't like the new baby. But like we told him, Barney was here first. Each "baby gate" had a strategic cat size passageway cut into it and he would often sit one inch on the other side of the grating. He never ever warmed up to being Jesse's "older brother" and he always clearly considered himself to be "Dave's Cat" to his very last day.
