*Don't* "dress up" your pets, folks.  It's not cute, and your pets don't really enjoy it.

/Now, if it's your *pet's* idea - if they voluntarily crawl into some clothing or 'costume' and look photogenic, that's another kettle of fish.

I agree. But some short haired animals do benefit from a coat when it's really cold outside.


But for vanity?  I dunno.

Naw, Olive's just doing awesome long-term cat cosplay.  Great work on the costume, Olive

Yeah, no. Unless the costume is unobtrusive enough that the animal doesn't know its on. Think a bowtie on the collar. Otherwise that's just having fun at your pet's expense.

The people that dress up their pets are the exact type of people that shouldn't have pets.

The dogs that practically leap into their weird outfits because they love it so much? Yes, lots of that please.

But those forced dressings are just mean and I hope that each of their little Sweetums leave a dump cake in their bed.

I wonder if all these "national xyz whatever" days are just another way to get people to buy shiat.

Nah, couldn't be.

The only thing my dog wears is a life jacket for when we kayak. She doesn't really need it but it's funny.

Isn't having fun at your pet's expense 98% of the joy of having a pet?

My puppy refuses to go outside unless he has his coat on. He also has a KC Chiefs jersey that he likes to wear on Sundays.

That's actually pretty damn impressive.

The first time the current clowder (they were adopted together at roughly the same age) caught a mouse my kitchen floor looked like CSI: The Home Game and I'm pretty sure the mouse actually died of embarrassment at how long it was taking.

Moira did not like wearing a sweater, so she didn't wear it more than a couple of times.  Current house panther Mystic is much larger than Moira so the old sweater would never fit her.  Also, this would probably be the end result:

As best as I can guess he sits on the deck. The light attracts insects which attracts bats. He must be timing his jump to snatch the bats out of the air and he kills them but leaves them on the patio.

Alfie has a sweater so he can go to the park even when it's colder. Normally, he just has a harness.
