Halloweensie Contest - Halloween is for Cats!

Critique sat in the window watching for ghosts and goblins. She puffed her tail to its Halloween fluffiest. On Halloween a cat can pounce and hiss all she wants. It’s fun to be naughty, she thought, convinced that children feel the same way. Why else would they go door to door dressed as a witch or a bat?  

"Trick-or-treat is for cats too!," she meowed.

 Just then a monster appeared at the door. Woofing and barking, it bared its frightful fangs right at her!

“Easter is more for me,” she said hopping away. "Where can I find a nice bonnet?"
Halloweensie Contest Sponsored by Susanna Leonard Hill
The Contest: write a 100 word Halloween story appropriate for children (title not included in the 100 words), using the words witch, bat, and "trick-or-treat". Your story can be scary, funny or anything in between, poetry or prose, but it will only count for the contest if it includes those 3 words and is 100 words (you can go under, but not over!) Get it? Halloweensie - because it's not very long and it's for little people :)
