1. Overweight Feline     FAT CAT

3. Grab for fuzzy fruit

4. Nightmare holler

5. Farewell, shoofly!

Once in a land called "Rhymenoreason" an unconscious fellow named Stephen Streets was quietly carried down from a local mountain in the light of the full moon by a half dozen villagers. A local alchemist surmised he was suffering from "SOUP DROOP"...the six villagers cocked their heads quizzically...the alchemist whispered..."fatigue from too much broth"...it was never determined how long he'd been there, he was a bit of  a recluse (an unknown ear condition)...no one had seen him in weeks.

Hollis' "So long gong" for #11 is close, but not a true Ink Pink. Since the "o" is pronounced differently in each, they are not rhymes.
Another definition of #11 would be "Hades gongs"

#12 - a young lady's ornament certainly could be a "Girl's Curl's".  However, I was thinking of something that could better be described as a "Young Lady's Jewels"

Yes! Hell's Bells is correct.

My goodness! So many possibilities for the same Ink Pink. Since a femme is a bit older than a girl, it's not the best answer. Try agin! Half of your first guess was correct.
