As soon as you reach out to pet Chappy, his owl head swivels around ala the Dramatic Hamster to reveal crazy bug eyes sunken into a biohazard of black and white fur. He wears his mustache with what I want to guess is cat food. His craggly beard tapers off into crusty sculptures; like rock formations in the Southwest. But those huge eyes are the worst. They are ever-leaking that alien goo that is always desperately trying to escape from the inside of a cat. Maybe the scariest part is the disappearing act. Half due to the diligence of my sister... but mostly due to Chappy's self-cleaning mode. That Jabba the Hut tongue snakes out and does a Scooby-Doo sweep of the whole thing.
Check out the Black Cats Treasury over on Etsy for some more spooky kitties, and if a black cat crosses your path, just be glad it's not the ghost of Chappy's beard crusties.
