What Doctor Octopus Wore; so dapper! - The Dainty Squid

What Doctor Octopus Wore; so dapper!

Thursday, September 29, 2011

Is it safe to say I have the most dapper cat in the world? I think so!

When I saw this suit and bow tie combo on ebay I knew he had to have it. It's so not fun to put on since they're real buttons, not snaps or velcro. But it, clearly, is so worth it. I might have even gotten a little teary eyed looking at him all snazzy like this. Just wait til I have human children someday ai yi yi! The glasses and hat are from the doll section in craft store. All the doll accessories are kitty sized! I cant wait to look at other craft stores for more "doll" clothes. 

Hope you're having  a fabulous day!
xoxo!!

  4. I do this with my cats all the time! I like to take family portraits with them and my two rats. All together, dressing up six cats and two rats is very problematic!

  14. Omg he is just ADORABLE!! I wanna dress up my kitten but I don't think it will work, as she currently plays with or attack like..everything she comes in contact with:P

  15. Maybe you have some kitten-dressingup-tips? Did he always find it ok or did you like..made him used to it a little bit at a time or..? (Worst sentence ever, I blame English beeing my second language, sorry..:/)

  16. Nora, he was always okay with it. I used to think that it was because I started when he was a little kitten but we got the Professor when he was even younger and he HATES getting dressed up even though I've been trying since he was tiny. There are rare occasions when he'll handle it but most of the time he wont. I think I just got REALLY lucky with Doc, he's a super calm kitty who doesn't mind it in the least.

  17. You crack me up.... your cats are saints! Mine would eat my face if I tried to put clothes on him. I tried to put a harness on him *once* and it didn't work out.. AT ALL. I think I'll just live vicariously through you when it comes to dressing up the felines. :) :) And yes... he looks VERY dapper! -- Sea Marie

  18. I can't believe he sat for all of these & he doesn't look like he's going to scratch your eyes out at all!

    Our pup likes clothes but I really thought kitties were very different. He does look handsome tho...

  19. Oh my god, I think I love you. This is not only awesome, but hilarious. Dr O must be one cool cat to allow you to button up a shirt.

    This totally made my morning :)

  25. OMG Kaylah!!! He is so super duper CUTE!!!!! I was not aware that doll cloths from the craft stores would work. My kitties will now have to start collecting a wardrobe. Lol, I love the idea, my hubby on the other hand, thinks that the kitties will get annoyed. I disagree and think it is so cute and will have to begin cloths shopping for them now♥

    But seriously the glasses are completely clear.

  47. oh, you just made my day! My cat Mr Howard Moon has a hint of jealousy in his eyes. :)

  48. One of the ladies i work with dresses up her little dog everyday, she's probably about the size of a cat, but she gets all her outfits from the 'build a bear' store, they have cute little outfits for every occasion and they're fairly inexpensive!

  62. I have shown this 'what Doctor Octopus Wore' to anyone willing to look. I wish wish wish just one of my cats would allow me to dress them up. Ali

  63. Haha! I think he looks very wise. The one time we tried to dress up one of the family dogs, he hid under the couch and refused to come out.

    ReplyDelete
  64. He is terribly good in front of the camera :)

  65. Heck yes! You must be my long lost cat brother! (we share an affinity for dressing up)
