Let your friends and neighbors know which cat breed you think is best by carving a Halloween pumpkin that looks like your favorite feline.
Norwegian Forest cats boast a distinguished double coat topped with water-resistant hair. Their variety of colors -- ranging from pure white to coal black, with many hues and patterns in between -- makes each one look unique.
Bengal cats feature "wild looking" spotted and marbled markings. An Asian Leopard cat and a domestic cat create this hybrid breed.
American Curl cats sport unique ears that curl backward in an arc. Their ears, plus their plumed tails, create a stylish feline presence.
Abyssinian cats boast medium-length coats with unique "ticking" coloration; each hair is a lighter color at the root and darker at the tip
Birman cats are known for their all-white feet known as "gloves." The rest of the coat is light with a golden cast and darker points on the face, legs, and tail.
Scottish Fold cats are born with straight ears, which fold forward (or not -- sometimes they stay straight) by the time they're 3-4 weeks old.
Siamese cats are recognized by their "points" -- darker coloring on the tail, ears, feet, legs, and face. There are four varieties of points: lilac, blue, seal, and chocolate.
Show off your furry feline by carving a pumpkin with his or her likeness. We hope you enjoyed our cat breed Halloween stencils. Choose your favorite, then download our free carving stencils.
Use a photocopier to enlarge or reduce the pattern to fit the pumpkin. Follow the carving and etching directions listed on the pattern.
Note: The pumpkins shown in this slide show are Funkins -- synthetic pumpkins that are hollowed out as part of the manufacturing process.
Complete your pumpkin display with a fun scattering of mice. Group multiple mice on one large pumpkin or carve individual pumpkins for more flexibility in the final arrangement.
