Feline Friday Gone Bad

Sometimes on Thursday evening, I realize that the next day is Feline Friday and I have no blog material. NONE. The kitties have done nothing spectacular all week. Nothing has been broken. Nothing unusual has been eaten.

It's on those Thursday evenings that I say to Lily and Tinsel, "Do something cute. NOW."

Sometimes they respond and do something cute, but more often they just look at me and yawn.

It's on these Thursday evenings that I find myself frantically digging through boxes of Daughter's old baby clothes, looking for something that will fit Lily.

BECAUSE IF ALL ELSE FAILS, DRESS YOUR CAT. (This is actually good advice for any troubles that beset you in life.)

Last Thursday was one of those times. In a desperate attempt to dress Lily for a Feline Friday photo shoot, I shut both of us in the bathroom with the camera.

(click on the collage to bigify!)

As it turned out, Lily did not like the cute top I selected for her. Not even one little bit. She growled and tried to use her claws. She even tried to bite. Truth be told, the top was a little bit big and tended to fall off her shoulders.

It really wasn't attractive on her anyway.

But it was good enough for a Feline Friday. :-)

Dressing up takes practice. And lots and lots of delicious treats!

Lily said...

Thank you guys for stopping by! :-)
Denali-Maybe you're right about the owl jammies! I should see if they come in cat size. ;-)

Daisy-Wowzers! Thank you for stopping by our blog! You are a REAL CELEBRITY! And you are the best at modeling, so we should learn from you!

How adorable. I hear dressing up cats takes a lot of patience and practice! Not as easy as dressing a dog (well a small one).

Glad to hear you go yourself a Big Shot! I hope you have a ton of fun with it. I can't wait to see what you create with it.

Heeeheheeheeee! I think Denali is on to something here (I noticed the owl jammies too!)...and you thought you didn't have anyone in which to dress the toddler/infant owl pajamas...methinks you need to make a trip to Target, pronto!

Fonda said...

Hi Janet, I replied to your tag over on my blog!

Poor Lily! No way would I try that with my two. I'd be scratched up and down. :D

Cheri said...

After Sarah's comment, I'm worried...what if Lily HAD scratched your owl jammies?! The horror!

Maureen said...

Hah! Poor Lily!!! I have never tried dressing my cats... daughter has, but only when they are kittens and pretty much defenceless. I think I would be torn to shreds if I tried now.

Am missing having a little furry friend about the house and enjoy your feline friday's even if your furry friends are not playing the game.

Good luck with your article project, sounds interesting, do post when it is published.
