IF you manage to get it on him, you must post a pic of him looking pissed off in it as only cats can!

i've never had a cat with a pink gilet

if i had though i am fairly certain that it would have met with an unfortunate demise.

the gilet, that is

My cat had a kimon once.

not much help sorry

I think my cat would rip my arms, legs and face off if I tried to put a gilet on.

Have you tried it on yours yet?
Can I suggest that you have someone on hand with a camera, to capture those precious moments?

my mum uaed to put a xmas hat on our cat and take pics.

There is no way- unless the cat was ill and it was recomended by a vet- that a cat should be wearing anything. You know that right!??

Still good luck in getting that thing on your cat. My sister and I (ok me) used to dress up our family cat when we were little. I can still see his little face, a mask of pained resignation.....

If you really want to traumatise a cat prevent him from grooming - please don't

I think you need to find your cat some ickle pink ugg boots to go with the gilet

who wears just a gilet?

<mind boggles>

FanjoForTheMincePies Thu 25-Nov-10 14:20:27

i wonder what you would give the cat if you DIDN'T love him? grin

DooinMeCleanin Thu 25-Nov-10 14:21:29

these are for dogs but so is your cats gillet so I'm sure they'll look okay together.

I'd put the booties on first later, to save on pain when putting the gillet on wink

I tried to put a santa claus jacket on two of my cats, they both walked backwards with it on. Honestly just try the pink gilet and film it.

'A kimono makes sense somehow theevildead2'

Think about that. You're suggesting cat kimono's are sensible.

Please don't actually let him outside alone in it.

1. because he might actually die of embarrasment.

2 because it could get dangerous if it gets caught on anything.

Maybe make him a waterbottle every night for his igloo?

Never mind about cat gilets - what's that about a special trip to the shops for candied yams? Are they for the cat too? Doesn't your DH have any hobbies?

theevildead2 Thu 25-Nov-10 14:29:24

Also is it waterproof? if he gets caught in the rain even if it is waterproof it will catch water under his coat making it more cold. and he won't dry properly

theevildead2 Thu 25-Nov-10 14:29:52

candied yams are clearly a must have today!
