I Feel Pretty . . .

Oh, so pretty,
I feel pretty and witty and bright!
And I pity
Any girl who isn't me tonight.

Quick! Name that musical.

This overly enthusiastic cat is Lucinda Gooseberry. Remember her? Well, she has filled out a bit since you last saw her, so I understand if you don't recognize her. 

She's quite the sport, let me tell you. As you can see, Stinkerbell has dressed her in a most charming pink t-shirt emblazoned with the title "Spoiled Princess." And to sort of top off the whole look is a little homemade tiara that Stinkerbell made just for her.

Let's be honest here. How smart can this cat be, really, if it lets a child dress her like this? And do you see her struggling any? Seriously, Girlfriend has claws. Can she not use them?

As a matter of fact, you probably aren't going to believe this at all, but the crazy cat actually purrs whenever Stinkerbell is controlling her like this. Which is pretty much 24-7.  

So, as I was saying, it looks like we are the lucky owners of yet another cat with just enough brain cells to maintain life support.


  1. West Side Story!! It's my favorite:-)

  2. Aww, that is precious! Our cat would not go for this at all. You are all very lucky to have such a sweetie! Merry Christmas to you and yours. Your blog always cracks me up!!!!!!!!!!

  3. OMG to cute!!! my girls used to dress our cats up and my youngest still does and Harley our cat loves it!

  4. That is such an adorable photo! We have a boy cat who runs if anyone looks at him, so he would not be as patient as the long-suffering Miss Lucinda.

  5. LOVE your kitty!! There is NO WAY our fur babies would tolerate such loving!;)

  6. Oh my WORD. That is TOO much!

    Yes! It's me! From days gone by! And by, and by, and by...

    But I am back! Hopefully to stay. Can't not blog any longer. Must. Make. Time. For. Blog.

    Hope you had a fabulous Christmas and that your New Year is amazing!


  7. Oh my! I cannot believe the cat purrs when she is going through that. You have definitely been blessed with a good one!

    Our cat looks much like yours, just with a black nose. And it's a boy. Oh, and he doesn't have his claws. No dress up for him either. I even just posted the other day on how he likes to sleep on the vents again now that it hovers in the freezing temperatures here constantly.

    Happy New Year to you and your family!

  8. What a sweet, patient kitty! I'm certain that dogs that allow themselves to be dressed are simply the submissive and docile types, but cats? Hmmm.... She must have an ulterior motive in permitting the humiliating costume choice. Probably plotting her revenge as we speak... a dead mouse in the shoe perhaps?

  9. Love it! Wow, she's (the cat - heck, the kidlet too!) grown!

    Just stopping in to wish you a Happy New Year (yeah, missed Christmas big-time this year). Hope you and yours had a wonderful holiday season.
