I saw a card the other day that said ‘Pets Love Christmas Because They Get To Wear All Of Their Favourite Outfits’ and I couldn’t help but laugh out loud. The cat and dog on the front of the card looked anything but pleased, but it’s actually quite the opposite when it comes to Belle and Nala.
First of all, they do kind of hate the first five minutes of wearing any kind of pet clothing – I will admit to that. But after that grace period is over they start to really enjoy it.
It makes them so calm and content and they get really snuggly once I pop a little jumper or shirt on. I think it’s because it feels like a hug, and they feel really safe and secure when wearing something over their upper torso. Have any of you ever tried ThunderShirts on your pets? I’m guessing cat jumpers and shirts provide a similar effect.
I took a couple of hours last week to dress Belle and Nala up in some pet costumes I found, and here are the pictures. They really loved playing with all of the props and being the centre attention, not to mention the ridiculous amount of treats they were given afterwards. They only thing they didn’t like is the constant outfit changes, but I think you’ll see they got used to it in the end.
