Ax-Wielding Cat Wins Pet Halloween Costume Contest

The Richardsons' Cat with a Bloody Ax hacked out the majority of votes in our Halloween pet costume contest, narrowly beating the Vampire Chihuahua.

Jon and Mary Richardson's cat must have gone on quite a Halloween rampage: He was too pooped to wake up and pose for a photo with his implement of destruction.

But that didn't keep the Cat with a Bloody Ax from capturing the most votes in our Best Pet Halloween Costume Contest, snatching the prize from the jaws of the Vampire Chihuahua, who was also popular with voters.

Honorable mention goes to the Piggy and Bumblebee dogs.

You can see all the costumed contestants in the accompanying photos and the Richardsons win a $50 gift card. Thanks to everyone who entered and voted!

Dear me, it seems I have been using the British spelling for the cat's weapon. In America, apparently, it is an ax. I will fix it ... later.
