While he’s a much loved family pet, our cat Phinneas’s main hobby is glaring at everyone while he sheds all over my previously white duvet. It doesn’t seem quite right that we fork out for all natural cat food with actual duck in it for judgmental bedroom decor.
This Halloween my daughter and I bought Phinneas a vampire costume. It was a total impulse purchase but in a lot of ways it balanced the pet-human scales in our household. Because now the cat is subject to the gross indignity that is small-child-on-feline-dress-up so his disdain is completely understandable.
