My British Shorthair, Plum, is a cat with dignity. He's the kind of guy who would choose to wear a pinstriped waistcoat, even on Saturdays and even in the a.m., and perhaps with a bowler hat. (I admit to trying on several occasions to get my mother to sew him such a weskit, but she, wisely, will have nothing to do with that project, for she knows--that way crazy lies.)
Anyway, prior to tonight's endeavor, I figured Plum would be my pet who would least tolerate wearing Christmas cheer. But surprisingly, I was wrong about that. He actually stayed quite still while he was being "dressed," and only gave me cranky ears with perhaps a bit of recrimination around the eyes. But no wriggling!
Here is the fine gentleman in his Santa Claus necktie. Behold!
Isn't he handsome!
I also made him try on Posy's santa hat, although I wasn't able to get a very clear picture:
What a cooperative Sir Plum!
