Aby-a-Day – December 12: ‘Tis the season to deck the cats (Fashion Friday)

What is Christmastime for but to dress your kitties up in holiday finery?


I started out with Jacoby’s Christmas Tree outfit.


He hasn’t actually worn this since I got it from Build-a-Bear in 2010. So, you know. It was time.


Of course I had him pose under the tree…next to a tree…where else would you have had him pose?


Jake is such a good sport. He doesn’t really like the tree outfit – it’s a bit stiff and constraining – but he modelled it like a champ.


Next up, the Santa hat with Christmas cape and jingle bell ruff.


The hat could fit him better.


He likes this outfit a lot better. It seems a lot more comfortable.


Except for the hat.


Finally, the old crowd favourite, the Mistletoe Hat, paired with the Santa scarf.


Jake really doesn’t mind the mistletoe hat. I think he could wear it all day long.


The scarf was a bit thick for his neck. Which is actually ironic since it’s one of the few items of clothing that was actually made specifically for cats.


Usual disclaimers: Jake was purring the entire time we were taking photos, and he was amply compensated for his efforts.


I did try to get Jake a fugly Xmas sweater…but they didn’t have any in his size. Maybe next year.
