Melly the Sports Fan

Geoff and I were at the University of Washington bookstore recently and while he was shopping for a golf shirt for his dad, I jokingly suggested that he get one of the tiny dog jerseys for Melly.  Jokingly suggested, mind you.  

The next thing I knew, he'd grabbed a Melly-sized jersey and was off to the cash register. 

And then this happened:


And here's a video.  I didn't think Melly would appreciate it being posted with its original soundtrack of my constant giggling (the laughing is also why the camera work is a bit shaky), so I added a soundtrack that I thought she might find more appropriate.

Oh my goodness that is just too adorable! I love purple and I do dress up my three. Hehe.

Melly, you are a very good sport :)

Melly, our mom's NOT laughing, she swears she's not.

We've heard that a lot of kitties "lose their bones" when forced to don clothing, though happily we have no personal experience from which to comment.

We DO agree that you were a very good sport about it. We don't see any trail of human blood, after all. LOL.

Oh, the humiliation of it all!! We thought it was funny that Scarlett had to check her out--she was probably glad she escaped the madness!

I think I heard Scarlett laughing!

We humans feed you, love you, groom you, keep you safe and healthy and well fed.. a smidge of humiliation is a small price to pay to make us happy :)

Oh Melly... what have they done to you? purrs

BONELESS!!!

Mommy, you stop that cackling RIGHT NOW.

Okay, that's just about the best thing yet. :)

Poor Melly -- oh, the humiliation of it all! Scarlett sensibly decided to leave after seeing what had been done to Melly -- probably fearing she was next. Hee!

Melly, we can't believe your mom found that amusing one bit! That shirt took away your ability to stand up for yourself - literally! Humans have a weird sense of humor!

You do suit well in purple , Melly !
Me neither can understand that your mom found it amusing though ;-)

Melly was pretty calm about it considering - I love how she thought rolling out of it might work.

Melly, you have my sympathies. I go super boneless when my humans try putting a harness on me. At least you did walk around some! What did Scarlett say to you?

Catherine said...

Poor Melly! That jersey appears to be really weighing her down.

We get the distinct impression that Mellie wasnt too happy with her pretty jersey...

Dear Melly
You looked fabulous but we would have done the exact same thing as you!

Melly, I can tell you really did not enjoy that! I don't blame you - how many girl kitties like sports wear anyhow?

Squeeeeeeeeee! how cute is that!

She is saying "Get this stupid thing off of me!"
