Sammy-Joe Needs A Costume!

First of all, don't forget about the doggie toy giveaway that is still going on! Today is the LAST day to enter, doggies! Today at 5 pm Central, I will pick a winner! The winner will be announced tomorrow morning as soon as Mama gets her lazy butt outta bed to help me type. 


So... Its not really my turn to write in the blog today. Its supposed to be Trixie's turn. But she said we could switch, because I have an important question! I've been invited to an online costume contest, hosted by Baby Rocket Dog And Hootie.
They specifically asked me to be in it, and not my doggie sisters, because they are short on cats. They begged me! 

I have two problems. First, I don't own a costume. Second, Mama doesn't have any money right now to get me a costume or even to get things to make a costume.  And third, I am not quite sure i will let Mama put a costume on me! (Oops, I guess that is three problems, isn't it!)

Mama did come up with one idea. I have a red bandanna that I used to sometimes wear, until Gramma made me take it off cuz she thought it was a choking hazard. Mama thinks she can make me a cowboy costume. She'll get some cardboard and tin foil and make me a little badge to stick to my bandana, so I look like a cowboy sheriff! 

We wanted to ask you, do you have any other ideas for easy costumes that could be quickly put onto a cat like me? Remember, I am a strong cat. I'm like a panther. So it has to be something easy. Something Mama could make with the junk around the house. Or, if anyone has a costume they could mail to me before February that I could use, that they think Mama could get me into without me clawing her eyeballs out, that would be good...  she'd mail it back to you, of course! The costume contest deadline is February 6.

What do you think? Cowboy costume? Or your idea?

Oh yeah, if you want to enter the costume contest too, I know that would make Baby Rocket Dog and Hootie really happy. The information for it is here.

Let me know what you think, everyone! I'll be waiting to hear your ideas!

Your Mama must be very brave; our kitties fight us tooth & nail when we try & dress them up. We gave up the fight years ago, or we would gladly let you borrow a costume. Good luck!

What is going on with this blog? When we clicked to leave a comment, we almost clicked on a popup ad window. And when we tried to post the comment, your blog totally disappeared and we had nothing but a window of ads - this blog brought to you or sponsored by or whatever ..... and we didn't stay long enough to see the next one. But something is wrong!

Sammy-Joe just tell them that you are wearing your finest fur coat and it is the best outfit of a cat because we cats don't wear outfits.

I too had some trouble getting on your blog.
lots of crazy things popped up along with some ads...and I also rec'd a warning about something

The cowboy idea might be the least traumatic and easiest too.

Love and licks, Winnie

Well, if you have a little black felt, you could make yourself a pirate costume and use the bandanna as a sort of do rag. Or you could sprawl on your back and put a leaf in a strategic place, perhaps with a come hither smile on your face.

Bawhahahahaha! Bunny is funny. How about you throw a sheet over your head and be a ghost? I like the cowboy idea, too.

Your pal, Pip
