It’s well into October, which means many Halloween enthusiasts are putting the final finishing touches on their pumpkin, skeleton, and ghoul-themed decor. (Let’s be real. Most of you ghouls probably had your home in full haunted house mode by the end of August.)

But… does your familiar have a spooky space of his own? If your cat likes to get in on the fun during the scariest season of the year, then you need to check out Target’s collection of Halloween-themed cat scratchers.

Target’s Hyde & EEK! Boutique has released annual line of Halloween scratchers, and this year, the brand has really outdone itself. In the days leading up to Halloween, your kitty can hang out in a zombie-run ice cream truck, a ghoulish pirate ship, or a witch’s house modeled after her infamous pointed hat.

Each of the Hyde & EEK! Boutiquer scratchers are made of foldable cardboard and each features a corrugated scratchpad on the inside. Sprinkle a bit of loose catnip into the scratcher’s crevices and watch your cat go wild — dare we say possessed, even.

This set of tombstone scratchers actually come with packets of catnip. Beware. Your cat may turn into a devilish poltergeist after taking a whiff of the stuff.

The cardboard scratchers are lightweight, easy to assemble, and you can create your very own kitty Halloween village by purchasing a few at the same time.

You can shop all nine of Target’s Halloween cat scratchers over on the Target website. We wish you luck trying to ward off the Halloween spirit influencing you to buy all nine scratchers. But honestly, they’re all too cute to resist.
