DOMINO: FRIDAY FASHION FAUX PAW
Here is Domino in her very furst fashion modelling assignment! Unfortunately, it isn't going very well.
Mama had the great idea to buy some outfits for Domino in the hopes that she could become a top kitty model like Daisy, the Curly Cat and Reese. After all, Domino has shown remarkable modelling ability in the past, albeit strictly in the nude. So, mama went on eBay and found a cute little "dress" for not much money. She thought an XS (extra small) would fit because of the auction listing size chart, but then neglected to actually measure Domino.
So, this cute little "dress" arrived looking more like a vest than anything, and it really didn't fit as you can see by the pictures. Domino's arms barely made it through the armholes, and you can see that her fur is pulled back at the top of the hole because of the super snug fit. Mama couldn't do up the velcro closure underneath either, so it is just hanging open, for the most part. It did close at the neck, just barely, without constricting Domino's airway.
Anyway, Domino could hardly move once in her straightjacket. You can see her attempts to walk which end in awkward poses and not much movement! Poor little thing. The only problem was that she still looked so cute that mama had to keep taking pictures of this fashion disaster.
Mama's furiend, Susan is sitting with Domino on the bench. Doesn't Domino just look so tiny and forlorn? Don't worry, her torture is almost at an end. Domino makes sure I know she's not amewsed by giving me the "stink-eye" in the last photo. If efur there was a Fashion Faux Paw, this is it!
P.S. After we released Domino from her straightjacket, mama's furiend Susan, took the little outfit and is going to try to add some pieces to it to make it a little bigger and more kitty-friendly. We also tried to stretch the armholes as much as possible. Something tells me, it's just going to end up being recycled, though.
P.P.S. Domino hopes Milo doesn't laugh too much when he sees this! She's been humiliated enough already.
