Friday cat blogging with a Boston terrier bonus

I work from home, so my cats are used to having me around. I think they really noticed it during the holidays when we were out pretty much all the time since we didn't do any hosting this year. I haven't been taking many photos of them lately, and they so hated the little Santa jacket we put on them last year that I didn't have the heart to do it to them again this year. So here is the photo greeting we sent out last year (it's clickable):

Cats seem to hate having anything covering them - they do that funky get-it-off-me walk when something that is not normally there is touching their legs or body. Both Chibi and Ebi really hated it - lifted their legs high to take a step and then paused before taking another uncomfortable step. And yes, I admit to laughing at them. I'm a meanie, I know.

Dogs, on the other hand, seem to like wearing jackets and sweaters. I don't quite get it. Sierra, my niece's Boston terrier, is the sweetest little thing, and look how she loves the two new additions to her wardrobe - umm, actually the only pieces in her wardrobe.

Posing, and looking pretty spiffy in a sweater that my sister-in-law, Karen, knit for her.

And in her seriously-cold-outside coat, with faux-fur collar, and booties.

I spent my holidays with these two cuties - lucky me!

Will be back with some craft-related posts next week!

Chibi and Ebi looked cute in those outfits though!

The BT is pretty cute, too!

OMG that dog cracks me up with that coat and booties on! they are SOOOOO cute.
Yes, cats hate wearing clothes. I speak from experience. I still have a scar on my hand from being bitten by my cat who definately didnt want to wear a little sweater I had knitted for her.

Coats and sweaters for dogs. These days, I hardly see a dog on the streets in Kanazawa without a sweater or rain coat on.

Since moving to Tokyo, I'm no loner surprised by the clothings worn by pets here. I've seen dogs wearing items from kimono to fur-lined parkas & wellingtons!
