TUXY TUESDAY: DOMINO GOT SKUNKED!



































































































































































































































Put away your tomato juice! No, Domino did not get sprayed by a skunk. She did, however, get skunked by me!

What can I say -- I'm a mean mama! When I bought Domino her little dress -- the one that she wore last Tuesday -- I also came across this most adorable skunk outfit. I just couldn't resist. Tuxies and skunks are a purrfect pairing, don't you think?

I harken back to the days of the Bugs Bunny cartoons on TV, where Pepe le Pew mistook a poor little tuxy girl kitty for his lady love! Actually, it kind of reminds me of Domino and Milo (take a peek at the end of this post and see what you think!).

Anyway, once again the outfit was a little on the small side. This one was much bigger overall, and I had no trouble fastening it around Domino's neck and middle. However, it was still quite short, as the tail of the outfit ended before her own began.

Also, the head of the outfit would just barely fit over Domino's ears, and being small, the elastic kept pulling it back. Despite all this, though, Domino "dis-stinked-ly" looked like a skunk, so I was very pleased with the effect.

Even though the costume didn't touch her legs at all, Domino is walking quite oddly, as if actually impaired by the ensemble. Then she does her big stretch on the bench, and afterwards hopped on over to the planter with her leg extended upwards and backwards -- kind of like the standard Cupid pose!

Finally, her Daddy rescued her from wandering very far in her befuddled state. Daddy held Domino so I could get some decent pictures of her from the underside. These are strangely bizarre in their own right -- not only Domino who makes the cutest postures, but also because of her Daddy's facial expressions (the parts that you can see anyways)! I giggled when editing these, believe me!

Domino was released back onto the bench for a few final shots before being relieved of this latest instrument of torture. I must say, I'm getting quite a kick out of dressing up my kitties (all except Dylan who would certainly not tolerate such things). I'm just hoping I don't become too addicted to it. Domino very FURvently hopes so, too!

And here, as promised is a comPURRison of Pepe le Pew and his Kitty-Love to our Milo and Domino. Quite the likeness, methinks!

Quite the comparison of the pairs, indeed! But poor Domino, she didn't look at all pleased with her outfit. (It *was* cute though!)

Purrs and hugs,

I had to do double-take real quick at first. I thought Domino had been painted, much like what happens to Pepe le Pew's girlfriend. Great outfit. Hope Mom doesn't get any ideas, for Josie's sake. Halloween is coming up, you know.

Oh Domino you poor kitty - you do look like you are not thrilled to play dress up. But you do look very cute in the outfit!

Cory said...

Hi again. Mom says that Grete is afraid of flashing lights, flashlights, camera flashes, natural light that reflects of mirrors or windows. It's getting better but she still has a ways to go.

A Few Good Cats said...

Oh, Domino, you would make a sweet skunk, but you're an even cuter cat!

carebear said...

Yup, that's me holding the skunk.

Good thing Domino and Dante are so patient (not like Dylan); mommy is merciless with the costumes.

But home would not be
if it wasn't for mommy and our 3

Kate said...

What a funneh gurl. I love the skunk outfit, but the little pink and black "vest/dress is extremely cute also. I want to play kitteh dress up too!! My kitz won't like it one bit, but I love it!

Charlemagne and Tamar said...

Oh dear - Domino. Your momma certainly has an interesting sense of humor, dressing you as one of those smelly creatures.

We hope that she's come to her senses now! ;-)
