Lesson learned – Patrick doesn’t want to enlist…

This is Patrick…

Patrick after a long hard day of napping...

We learned a valuable life lesson about Patrick yesterday.  He doesn’t want to go into the military.

We purchased this outfit for him to wear on Thanksgiving with all of the visitors…

Patrick's military uniform


So we put his uniform on him and he tears out of the dining room, through the kitchen, out through the ‘sliders’ and onto the lanai where he proceeds to run into one of the posts supporting the screen.  It was at this point that our older cat Asher thinks that he’s being attacked by a larger than normal lizard and they both somehow settle into this ritual that only cats can come up with – they ran around the pool, one right behind the other 3 times before Patrick ran into the house and up the stairs to his favorite nightclub (behind the sofa in the sitting room).

You would’ve thought that a Saint Bernard was chasing the 2 of them…when we finally caught up with Patrick to help him out of his ‘soon-to-be-donated-to-the-Salvation-Army’ kitty uniform, he was obviously unhappy with us both.

We’re still in the litter box for this one…so, I’m not letting him sleep in the bedroom tonight…because he really may succeed in killing me tonight…

  1. I didn’t realize that Dr. Doom had a brother. I am now absolutely convinced that he was trying to kill you, as his doppelganger has been frequently suspected of the same. Sleep with one eye open.

  3. Patrick is gorgeous!

    I’d say lots of kitty treats. Get him drunk on catnip and give him a night on the town. Get a kitty lap-dancer or something. Make him forget.
