So, although I am totally ashamed to admit it, there really are some cats out there who have been coerced into putting on clothing, simply for the amusement of their humans. What were these people thinking? Don't they know that cats are perfectly beautiful in every way, without the "enhancement" of a costume? And what were these kitties thinking? Don't they have claws and teeth? Why don't they use them? I will never understand it! Never! But anyway, now that I've started writing, I feel I have no choice but to go ahead and show you some photos so that you can see for yourselves how totally asinine a cat looks in a costume.
Of course, the obvious irony is to dress a cat up as a mouse.
At least this poor little kitten can't be blamed for being too young to know what he was getting into when someone stuck a costume on him.
Mon dieu! It's some kind of silly French-looking cat, and with jack-o-lanterns, too.
And speaking of pumpkins, here's a cat dressed up to look like one.
Okay, it's true that cats don't like getting wet, but this is going to extremes!
This cat actually has the decency to look embarrassed to be caught wearing a costume.
Well, Hello Kitty!
At least this costume has play value. I'd love to get my paws on those feathers!
And this wig could be a fun time, too!
Do you think this girl will attract a hot tom?
Here are four cats who all agreed to wear costumes and to pose in them too! It totally blows my mind!
The very rare Cat Penguin.
And finally, the businessman cat. He doesn't look very happy. Perhaps his stock portfolio is not performing well.
I don't know who is making all these kitty costumes, but he or she is probably purring all the way to the bank! At least I have put Mom on notice that if she ever tries to make me wear a costume, I will scratch her eyes out, and I believe she is taking my warning quite seriously!
