It’s no secret that many people in first world countries treat their pets like children. We were no different prior to a child. We have cats named Widow and Widower. Yes, they are black, as we are not racist when it comes to our pets, however, despite their mourning attire we named them that in hopes that they would keep our Brown Widow spider population down – although that reasoning doesn’t work when you are explaining it to an actual widow. Then it’s just awkward and insensitive…in retrospect.
Anyway, one of my favorite actitivities, you know, when I was sleeping through the night regularly and not keeping a small child alive, was costuming the cats for holidays – of which only remains on for a short time. Below you will find Widower in his Christmas attire. His other threads include black wings for Halloween – to which I sing loudly the old Batman tv show theme song “duh-nuh-nuh-nuh BLACK CAT!!!!”
