Waffles Wednesday: National Dress Up Your Pet Day with Waffles' Top 6 Fashion Tips for Cats

WAFFLES:  So you're probably wondering why I'm all dressed up today like it's a special occasion and all. Well it IS Waffles Wednesday, you know.

But did you know it's also National Dress Up Your Pet Day?  That doesn't mean you have to wear a DRESS though.

I figured the ladies would like to see me in my fancy coat and tails. 

But not all cats like to play dress up. 

The Boss, well... even though she's got her own closet, she's not a fan. 

But I don't mind it at all. There's usually some freeze dried chicken involved in dress up.

So if you want to impress the ladies or the mancats, here's my top 6 Do's and Don'ts for playing dress up:

1.  Harness Styling
Look for outfits that are fashioned like a harness with a simple strap that fits around the neck and the tummy. 

2.  No Heads
Avoid anything that has to go OVER the head or ON the head. The only hats and wigs I like to wear are magic Photoshop ones.

3.  No Danglies
Avoid outfits with dangly stuff like bells and ribbons. Some cats (not me of course) will try and pull them off and eat them.

4.  Super Vision
I don't mean really good eyesight. Don't ever leave us alone when we're dressed up.

5.  Time's Up!
Make sure we only wear our outfits for a short amount of time so we don't get too hot. 

6.  Alternatives
Not all cats like dressing up so don't ever force us to wear something...even for a little bit. Try something simpler like a spiffy collar. 

So Boss, are you going to play dress up with me?



  1. I am so not dressing up. That is like the last straw. Who invented this day?

  2. Sherpa has his tie dye t-shirt.....

  3. Those are great tips! My human made me wear some stuff for Dress Up Your Pet Day... and then decided not to use them! And they were nice photos too. :-/

  4. Great tips, Waff ..... But we still won't dress up. We're with Katie!

  5. We'll let you celebrate this day on our behalf, Waffles. No attempt to get us to wear anything beside our collar has ever gone without bloodshed on the humans' part.

  6. This is one day we're glad the mom didn't know about. No dressing up for us.

  7. You're a good role model, Waffles. Richard won't even wear his ID collar!

  8. Waffles, I am not about to put any clothes on today or ever, but Mom and I think you look extremely handsome in your tailcoat.

  9. hey Katie - that appears to be a very spiffy collar :) we are pretty "no thanks" about the dressing up thing around here.....

  20. Brat & Rags agree, their fur coats are enough

  21. You look soooo handsome in your coat and tails Waffles..

  22. Waffles you will have all the lady cats swooning. What a handsome boy. Made my day as always x

  23. We are so happy Mom did not know about this day. She has dressed Lily up once and Mauricio twice and neither were happy about it. She doesn't really believe in it either, but she sure enjoys looking at other kitties dressed up. Collar embellishments are okay with her and us. Waffles you are adorable and better you than us! XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

  24. Waffles I love it when you dress up in your tails. You are so Handsome! None of the Squeedunk cats would allow me to play dress up with them, but if ever I were to try I will use all of your tips...they are Purrfect!
