Charmee versus the Argyle (sweater)






I can predict that Skeezix the Cat will say "kyoot outfit," but Charmee really doesn't like his new sweater. In fact, he actively hates it.

Since it was rather nippy Friday and yesterday (and continues to be nippy today), Charmee has taken up hibernating on Mom's bed. When he stuck his freezing cold paw pads and chilly fur on Mom's nice warm arm in the middle of the night jolting her awake, she made it her mission to find him a sweater that fits.

And she did. She found a nice purple argyle sweater at PetSmart in size medium. She brought it home and stuffed him into it. Then chaos ensued ...

Charmz began walking backward and flopping over like a salmon (Mmmm ... salmon). He threw himself onto the carpet. He took a header off an end table. He crashed into the refrigerator. And then the little turkey (Mmmm ... turkey) managed to free his arms and run around crazily wearing the sweater like a skirt. Mom caught him before he dove head-first into the litterbox.

I really don't think that his sweater is going to get much wearin' ... Mom tried keeping him in it last night. He hopped up onto her (read: my) bed, wriggled around, and "pop" ... off came the sweater. He wormed his way under the covers and fell asleep.

I'll give him points for tenacity ...

Kitties don't need clothes. We have our nice furs to keep us warm inside. If we feel a bit cooler on the outside, deal with it.!

We like the purple sweater but we aren't the ones wearing it! Very cute, indeed! We might need sweaters here with our ice storm in St. Louis!
