Issues with Mr Cory and the Santa hat

(13 Posts)

So despite buying an avalanche of giftery, cards, food and decorations for the festive period, I have only just managed to achieve the critical purchase of the year - a new Santa hat, with elastic and matching scarf from Poundland for fat tabby Mr Cory.

He really, really doesn't want to put it on. I'm-off-to-the-Minor-Injuries-Walk-In doesn't fancy it. Two hours effort so far. Any tips? I daren't lose any more blood.

Don't do it, ours freaks out at this kind of thing too.

Have a baileys instead.

When MCat's hat arrived, there was a bit of angst. Then I levelled with him, woman to cat. "Please wear the hat, I know you feel a bit silly, but it will make mummy really, really happy." And then bribed him with a LOT of Dreamies, feeding them to him whilst putting the hat on him.

Now, when the hat comes out, he runs towards it because he associates it with those delicious morsels of catty crack. He is also a bit of an attention-whore, so enjoys the admiring glances.

Here he is, showing his best side.

<makes mental note to go to Poundland on Monday>

Rubbish - MCat is terrible sweet! Did not put me off at all!!!

Visual proof. I might have a Bailey's as well, you know.

"MCat is terrible sweet!" grin grin He's a complete despot, regarding me and MKitten as his play-things! I hate to imagine if we were shrunk down to mouse size...

Mr Cory has a distinguished look of disdain for the proceedings about him. Have the woman to cat chat with him. With copious Dreamies to distract him from the hat-wearing activities.

The secret is to have two dds between the ages of 8 and 13....
Leave said hat and scarf laying nonchalantly around. Before you know it, the cat will be dressed! Says she who found two cats dressed in doll's bonnets and cardigans once. smile

Bad luck, rubbish - mind you, it saves getting an arterial bleed from your little tinker just before the big day.

But I did manage to get my petit monsiers these beautiful bow ties!

Such fabulous festive felines! They look like furry James Bonds, vair debonair.

May you and all the other rubbishes have a fine Xmas day, with lashings of turkey for all.

I buy the cats and dogs Christmas jumpers every year

The dogs happily wear theirs but I make Dp wrestle the moggys into theirs tomorrow morning before the kids get up.
Poor Dp get mauled at 6am every year

My cats would tell you that only daft humans and dogs wear outfits.

Thank you Mrs. Cory. The little miaows make me proud. Wishing you and Signor Cory the most delightful of days. fsmile
