Aby-a-Day – December 22: Excuse me, there’s a mouse in my beard

As I said on Tuesday, Petco has some seriously awesome cat Christmas stuff. I think my favourite is the Santa hat with beard.

I have to admit that, at first, I wasn’t sure about the beard. I mean, a beard? On a cat?

But it actually works. I thought the little mouse in the beard would be, pardon the expression, cheesy, but it turned out to be pretty cute.

Unfortunately, it turned out that wearing both the beard and the Christmas cape from Build-a-Bear at the same time was more challenging than one would expect.

*sigh* At least he’s a willing model…
