I had a cute idea for Christmas cards - Leo would be Santa and Leia would be an elf! Well, let me say..... cats don't like costumes. The elf one was tolerated (kind of) but the Santa one never even successfully made it onto a cat. By the time I got the second paw in, Leo had gotten the first one out. At no time did he ever have two paws in.
And cats sitting still for a picture? Um..... well. Let's just say even my normal bribing with treats didn't work as Leia had hope that if she ran, she could escape the costume apparently.
And at times, they would work together to get the costume off whichever one it was on.
|"Mommy, what is this?"|
|"You might have gotten me to wear it, but you can't make me pose."|
|"This is embarrassing. I'll look away."|
|"Here, Leo. I'll help you get it off!"|
|"Mom, we are not amused."|
|"Fine. Take your silly picture and then get me out of here."|
|"Humiliating. Totally humiliating."|
|"I mean, a jingle bell hat? Really?"|
|"Look. There's another one. Help."|
|"No! This hat is not any better!"|
|"I can get it off!"|
|"I shall now hit the hat."|
|"What is this thing?"|
|"If I crouch down, can I escape it?"|
|"You woke me up..... for this?"|
|"If I eat the hat, I won't have to wear it!"|
The good news is, I did get some cute pictures and was able to make the cards.
