Le bal masqué

Cat Daddy: “What were you ordering from Amazon at 7:30 this morning?”

MERDE. I keep forgetting that the order notifications go through to his phone and not mine.

Me: “Erm …”

Him: “???”

Me: “Erm … ahem … Hallowe’en costumes for [Puppy Mamma]’s dogs.”

Him: “[Unrepeatable expletives]”

Me: “…”

Him: “Does she know that you’re buying them?”

Me: “Yes. She was going to buy some anyway.”

Him: “So why couldn’t you just let her be stupid on her own? Why did you have to be stupid as well?”

[Silence, tumbleweed, crickets]

Anyway, when he saw the photos he laughed. And, as we all know, once laughter takes place it automatically invalidates the right to criticise.

Here are the Nala the dog and Gizzy the [insert name of species] trying out their costumes. Louis Catorze, of course, is smug in the knowledge that he doesn’t need a costume because he’s scary enough as he is.

Photo created by Puppy Mamma – and she couldn’t resist including an evil-looking, fanged Catorze.

        1. It depends on the pet, really. You can tell if they really hate it or if they don’t mind. Catorze falls into the first category. 🤣🤣🤣

            1. I would love to put him in a dramatic sweeping cape, but I know he wouldn’t wear it. I’ve never tried but I know. Although you’re right, he doesn’t need it!

    1. Dogs are usually better at this sort of thing, aren’t they? I can imagine the cats saying, “If you do it once, they’ll make you do it again and again. Don’t lower your standards.”
