Friday cat blogging

Yesterday my great author friend (she's a great author and a great friend) Stephanie Kuehnert and I were discussing on Twitter how her cat Lars and my cat Twinkle are scared to death of the Comcast guy (granted, Twinkle is scared of every stranger and runs away, growling like Marge Simpson, the moment a car or truck pulls into the driveway).

It reminded me that I still had a picture from July 2009 (ALA Chicago) when I stayed with Stephanie, her fiance (now husband), and their three cats--Sid, Lars, and Kaspar. I was going to just post it straight to Twitpic, then realized it was Friday and I hadn't blogged in, um, a while.

Anyway, here's Kaspar as a chicken.

I am personally a HUGE fan of dressing up animals in silly costumes. It's the least they can do to pay us back for all those vet bills.

Happy Weekend! Next Monday I'll have a list of my holiday booksignings. Signed books make great gifts, especially for those people on your list who have everything except a signed book by me.

If you enjoy pets in costumes then take pleasure in my poor dogs suffering here: and here:
There are a few pics in each post...
Shockingly - they don't seem to mind and even go trick or treating earlier in the day on Halloween.

HA! Twinkle and Lars should be BFFs. He does the exact same thing. And well, I'm sure you remember how on that trip, you had to re-befriend him every time we came back to the house.

I love Friday cat blogging. It's a good theme!

LOL, Karen, those are great shots! Your dogs look so proud to be wearing them. I would love to dress up Meadow--if nothing else, we could put bumper stickers on her blue jacket and say she's a car.

Steph, if Twinkle and Lars are BFFs and Misha and Sid are soul brothers, I guess we have to get a third cat to match Kaspar. We'll just go to the shelter and see which one wants to wear the chicken hat.

Hugs to Lars and Twinkle. And to Kaspar - I want to rescue him from that chicken costume! *hugs to kittehs*

Thanks, Tez! Long-distance hugs are Twinkle's favorite kind (she's kind of squirmy, unless it's *her* idea to get in *your* lap or for *you* to rub *her* bellow--otherwise it's "noooo! I don't like touching!")!

Uh, that should be "belly," not "bellow."

More coffee, please.
