Hankie Got a Tie for Christmas.



And so, in a brief intermission from all the posts about elderly people, I present to you Hankie, our elderly cat.

He is almost 20 years old now, and more dignified than ever, sporting this beautiful tie sent to him my his Aunt Futuresis, a frequent commenter on Candy Rant, and my amazingly cool new sister-in-law.

As you can see, Hankie received treats for striking a pose.

    Oh what a handsome cat! I love cats, but my dogs don't care for them too much.

    I love the tie Hankie!

    He got many, many Pounce treats for that work.

    Hanky looks adorable! My dogs would never let me do that to them. The Bitchy One would be, well, bitchy, and The Fat One would just have a newfound fear of ties.

    adorable ... i mean, handsome and dignified...

    Back when Ceisaf was having skin issues, we sometimes had him wear a toddler polo shirt to keep him from chewing on his back - he looked like quite the hairy chested little mobster with his open collar and tags.

    The tie is brilliant. Once we made our cat wear a pair of reindeer antlers for christmas, but somehow she didn't enjoy it as much as Hanky seems to be enjoying his tie.

    Maybe you should start giving Ms. FossilFuel treats when she behaves well.

    c...I'm losing my mind over a mental picture of your mobster dog. PLEASE say you took pictures.

    Steve...you are onto something with the treats. And if you'd known how Mrs. Fossilfuel was behaving lately, you'd know she would not get ANY treats.

    STYLE.

    I HAS IT.

    (Hankie through the I CAN HAS CHEESEBURGER filter).

    Such a sweet guy. I'm a sucker for ties--and orange cats, as you know.

    I will send a tie for Mrs. Fossilfuel. Perhaps she would behave better if she was stylish.
