Pets in clothing

You know what animals love? Being jammed into little outfits for our amusement.

This is why I forced my cat into little angel wings one Halloween. I don’t have any pictures of this event because she immediately started thrashing around, hissing, scratching and tearing around the house, which to the untrained eye might have looked like displeasure, but I recognized as a sort of joyful dance at being so adorable. (This was also pre-smartphone so I wasn’t tirelessly documenting every moment of my existence. For more information see my upcoming Instagram photo series “Dry elbows: a year’s journey from scaly to silky”)

So yeah. Costumes for pets are pretty rad.
