I'm afraid to say some real ruffians turned up on our patch. They played some nasty trick or treat pranks and lobbed eggs and set off bangers. What they didn't know was Sebby Coo Coo the mafia racing pigeon spotted um with his little beadie birdie eyeballs and flapped pronto to Jemmy Jim Jams.
Poor old Atticus was very frightened of them knocking at his door. At first, the dear ol moggy thought they just wanted candy chews and lollies but they demanded cider and schnapsie, so Atti shut the door quick. It shook the elderly ol mog up, he got the jitters and nearly spilt his bedtime coco.
Soon Atti felt much better surrounded by his friends and Jemmy revealed her Revenge Plot!
When Lavinia found out that poor Atticus had been terrorised she gladly sent Tatty off with some old dust sheets.
The next evening the thugs turned up at Atticus' door demanding money and shouting and banging...
Gizzy leapt out the bushes and flung the sticky oil over them and I showered them in feathers! Suddenly Atticus' door was flung open by Jemmy Jims Jams and a stampede of wailing ghosts all piled out and put the fear of piglet hell into them!
As they fled Sebby Coo Coo dive bombed them and pigeon pooped on their heads!
Well...serves the rotters right! They ran, ran, ran!! Ha Haaaaaa.
Atticus and all the little animals came outside and everyone had candy sweets and lollies.
Watch your whiskers out there and Ta Ta for now.
