Creepy Chloe

Uploaded: October 19, 2015 08:11:53 | Entered: October 19, 2015 08:11:53


From a few years ago, Chloe, the resident feline of Wildseed Farms in Fredericksburg, TX allowed a few photos after she obliging posed on a palette of pumpkins. Using her feline prerogative, she graciously permitted just 3 photos before she became totally bored looking at me looking at her. This is my last one for those of you who remember previous Halloween photos of her. Happy Halloween, BP'er's!
