Birthday Suit

He came into my life seven months ago. I wasn’t so sure I wanted what having him in our space meant. Pete the cat, was a new adventure in a time chock full of new adventures. I wasn’t quite so sure I could handle it, but I was willing to give it a go.

There were some humps along the way but we have formed a bond.

We have an understanding and he knows that I am on his side on at least one primal issue.

Suits.
I don’t think my daughter would actually try to outfit Pete the cat in anything quite so silly, but one can never to too careful. Diamond girl has acquired some interesting wardrobe in her few months in residence. Not a taco suit, but she has a cape with a matching cap, a belted sweater, polo shirt and a fur and more. Wardrobe. Diamond girl balks at some but gives in to others.

I guess she’s picking her battles. Pete the cat will have none of that. Daughter presses on, insists that a cat in, at the very least, a hat is de rigueure. Pete and I are in total agreement. No hats! Or any other suits of clothing while we're on topic.
Pete the cat is two years old today. The celebration, sans hats, is on!

  1. Happy Birthday Pete!

    I've never seen a taco cat before! That's a riot...but the cat doesn't look too happy about it.

  4. I don't get the whole dog/cat clothing. My cousin has a rat...I mean dog that never touches the ground and changes clothes about five times a day. WTF???

  5. I haven't thought of trying to dress up a cat since I was about 7 or 8. I have been known to put a string of pearls around the dog though. :)

  6. I'm with Syd -- good luck dressing a cat.

    Happy B-day, Pete!

    Cats rule; dogs droooool (which is why I love both).

  7. Yeah, I kinda think she's "pissin' in the wind" with the whole trying to dress the cat, heck for the first coupla weeks he kept taking his collar off, but she thinks its doable.

    I don't get the fascination either, I think he's dressed enough and quite beautifully. As is Diamond girl, but the dog belongs to D.
