I was in Petco today picking up some ridiculously overpriced, weight-control cat food for Honey when I noticed a plethora of costumes for cats.
Initially, I scoffed at the idea and wondered who the hell would do that to their cat. (Note: This guy. Most definitely this guy.)
I mean come on, I know for a fact that cats absolutely hate having things put on ’em.
Then I remembered why it is that I know how much cats hate having things put on ’em…it’s because I love putting things on cats.
My cat growing up, Tom S. Katt (RIP), was always getting fitted for bowties or tiny capes or anything else I could find to dress him up.
Honey has already endured numerous encounters of me and Grace stacking items on her or trying to make her give her mice a ride around the house like a rodeo horse.
Naturally, this made me think that I should totally get Honey a Halloween costume.
Granted, she’s likely to be pretty pissed off about the whole thing and would probably cut me into a bloody mess well before I’d ever get her in the outfit, but if I could manage to get her into one of these getups for just one photo it would be totally worth it.
So I’m asking you, My Faithful Readers, should I get Honey a Halloween costume or should I let her go as a pretty orange cat for the 8th year in a row?!
(Blogger’s Note: Personally, I’m partial to the cowboy costume.)
