    I pick Bubba! I feel like we could lounge around together, relax, and watch a movie! I just won’t pet his belly ! I’m over 18 and in the US.

    My son loves cat, but he plays a little rough for kitties. So I’m gonna say Maggie 🙂 I’ve always liked how comforting she is to the sisters, plus her, my baby, and hopefully Misty might pop up, it’s just a promising night for adventure 😉

    Maggie would be fun to watch, and I’m curious what similarities there would be between her and my daughters when they were little. I’m over 18 and living in the USA (wasn’t that a song in the 80’s?).

    I would choose Maggie! My kids are getting older and I have baby fever! Plus, I feel like she would have fun playing with my littles. *Side Note: it wouldn’t hurt that I would get an eyeful of the man candy that would relieve me at the end of the night.

    I would have to go with Maggie. I have “known her for so long and would love to play with her. You have given her such a wonderful personality. Plus I have 2 cats, Bubble and Squeak and they are not fans of other cats. I am definetly over 18 and in New Jersey.

    Over 18 in Tennessee. You handed us a toughie this time! But as much as I love Maggie and gargoyles in general, I still have to pick Bubba because, who doesn’t want their belly rubbed? I already get to tickle the belly of the (sorry everyone…) most beautiful cat alive at the moment, and somehow, I think Bubba and my Clayton (named after a particularly good-looking werewolf) would get alone great!

    This is a really tough one… Maggie is absolutely adorbs, and spending Samhain with a gargoyle baby would be awesome. That being said, I would have to choose the belly-happy Bubba. What better way to spend a magical night than with the orange tabby with the magical belly? There would be so many belly rubs and wishes gone upside-down and sideways! I’d make it rain candy corn on the yard and have the treats dispense themselves into the goodie bags. My Halloween decorations would be dancing around like the cleaning implements in Fantasia, and I would wish for my ancestors to spend the evening with me (well, the ones that were invited for holidays while they were alive, anyway). A cjinn would bring a whole new level of meaning to ‘mischief night!’ Sure, the cleanup and damage control would be hellacious the next day, but it seems a fair trade to make in exchange for the magic.
    I’m well over 18 and live in North Carolina. Can you blame me for being crazy enough to take a chance making wishes on an efreeti?! NC is pretty humdrum!

    Maggie definitely because who wouldn’t want to babysit a baby gargoyle. I think she would be a treat to watch because she is such a curious little thing. I think she would be a treat for trick or treaters to see. I dont know how would be more scared maggie or the kids.

    As much as I love Maggie and Bubba, I would have to go with Samantha and the kittens. My parents say my first word was “horsie” and my second was “kitty” and I loved both. Unfortunately I was terribly allergic to cats when I was younger and could not have one in the house. When I was 4 my dad brought one home from our friend the vet as a birthday present but it had to live in the barn. I named him Sam. It was a good name for a good friend until HE had kittens. Needless to say we changed her name to Samantha…..LOL Since then I have always had a cat by the name of Sam or Samantha.

    I would like to babysit Bubba. I would rub the belly and wish to heal my dad’s cancer. It’s been a very emotional time right now and kitty love calms me and heals my heart. Even when the wishes don’t turn out quite right it will add laughter to my days! Gotta love the Bubba belly! I imagine it’s quite soft!

    They would all be fun but I would have to pick Maggie. I have known her longer, she can be a handful but she is adorable so mild scolding would be the limit and she will take years to be big enough you can not carry her around where ever you go. Bonus– she is a gargoyle and they are amazing. Their history is as ancient as the forests and mountains. I mean, you get to play with history.

    Why are you making me choose???? LOL This is so hard! OK…… I have to go with Maggie. I have loved that little girl since Camille first fished her out of the demons lunch pail. She just represents innocence to me. Which is so very rare. Her love is just so pure and her story is heartbreaking. The fact that she is going to be a baby for years and years also gets me. My baby is growing up so fast (shes now 8) that sometimes I just wish time would slow. just for a min. lol I think she stands for the loss of innocence that the sisters have had to face. I don’t want to say they have grown but they have. Maybe matured is a better word to use. They have each lost some part of themselves but have at the same time gained so much. She makes them actually sit down and enjoy the moment. Pure joy and childlike innocence.

    This was a hard choice but I chose Samantha and the kittens. Kittens are just so playful and sweet. Plus that was the first series I read by you and it made me long for my own cat, unfortunately my mom was allergic. Now I have my cat and enjoy her company.

    I’m torn between Maggie and Bubba. I’ve loved them both since first reading about them. I’m afraid with Bubba that I would accidentally ask for something while rubbing his belly though. I rub my cats bellies whenever they’ll let me (lol) and I absent mindedly think about all sorts of things while doing it. So for that reason, I guess I would actually watch Maggie just to be on the safe side

    I would pick Maggie because she is cute, cuddly and furry. I admit I am attracted to the cat like qualities and her sweet disposition. I love reading about her and it would be such a treat to meet her in person and be able to spend some time snuggling with her. I’m definitely over 18 years old, love animals especially ones you could hold and cuddle. I bet Maggie would love to try out some of the cat toys my cat Riley plays with and maybe even the ones he has decided not to play with (for secret cat reasons).

    I think I would have to pick….ok, who am I kidding? How could I pick? A gargoyle, a cjinn, or a mystical cat who has visited the underworld? I’d take a day with all three! A chance to cuddle Maggie, and learn about her physiology and her lovely personality, hanging with Bubba, DO NOT TOUCH THE TUMMY! A cat with intellect greater than mine I’m sure! And the lovely Samantha, destined to walk more worlds than me! That would be a Halloween to remember! I’m definitely over 18, and live in the US!

    If I could babysit one of those, I would choose Samantha and her babies. I’d be too worried about accidentally rubbing Bubba’s tummy to enjoy watching him. Maggie wouldn’t be too bad but I watch my 4, almost 5 year old grandson 5 days a week. I don’t know that I’d have the energy to handle two small ones. I really love kitty cats although I don’t have one right now since I lost my Baby. I’m just not ready to have a kitty full time but it would be fun to babysit a mama cat and her babies for a little while. I am in Oregon and way, way, way over 18.

    Hard to choose but Bubba wins out. I had a yellow, tiger striped cat when I was a kid (many, many moons ago) and Bubba reminds me of Mikey (big M on his forehead). I’m old so sitting and petting a cat is what I do best. No belly rubs though. I’m well over 18 and live is the US.
