Hi everybuddy. Well here it is, the end of October AND the last Friday. So you know what that means. That’s right…it’s time for Pet Photo Fails…a monthly blog hop hosted by our friends, Melissa and Mudpie over at Melissa’s Mochas, Mysteries & Meows. You know how this works by now. All you gotta do is post a blooper photo of your pet…one of those pictures that just didn’t turn out right and would normally end up in the recycle bin.

Since Halloween is tomorrow, I’ve got a Halloween flashback blooper for you. This was taken a few years ago when the lady with the yellow hair tried to get me to wear a stupid pumpkin hat. What is with humans trying to make us cats wear costumes? Don’t they know us cats don’t like wearing stuff? Well, unless you’re Summer Samba, I guess. She likes wearing costumes and dresses. But not me.

Zoey looking unhappy wearing a pumkin hat

As you can see, I was totally not into wearing this hat. I wouldn’t look at the camera and all I could think about was getting this thing off of me.  She hasn’t tried dressing me up since this big fail. Smart move on her part.

How about you? Does your human try to dress you up in silly costumes?

Island Cat mom here. Zoey could use the Power of the Purr. She’s having a pancreatitis flare-up, and is not feeling well and hasn’t been eating much lately. Needless to say, I’m worried about her. So if you could keep her in your thoughts and prayers, she and I would appreciate it.

  1. You do not look at all happy, Zoey, and even your ears are squished!
    I am sending good thoughts for you to soon feel better.

  2. Purring for Zoey!
    Sorry, though…that’s a cute hat and you looked adorable in it!

  3. I sure will beautiful Zoey– and sending you loves.

  4. For those old enough to remember, thinking of a line from the movie “Network” … Zoey saying here, “I’m mad as h…, and I’m not gonna take it anymore!” and now off with that hat and let’s toss it into the nearest waterway forever!

    More seriously, be well soon sweet girl, sending little tail wags your way.

  5. You are adorable sweet Zoe and we are worried about you too. Purrs, prayers and POTP from all of us.

  6. Well you do look rather unhappy about the hat even though it looks quite fetching on you!! I will not not not tolerate clothing of any kind – including a collar! I don’t mind my harness because it means “WALK OUTSIDE” but anything else – FORGETABOUTIT!

    Hugs, Teddy

  7. We love that flashback. Dad tried some Halloween stuff on us years ago and learned his lesson. Zoey we are sending lots of purrs and prayers dear girl. Feel better soon

  8. At least you wore it long enough for the rest of us to enjoy.

    Thank you for joining the Feline Friday Blog Hop.

    Have a purrfect Feline Friday and weekend. ♥

  13. Purrs for Zoey, we sure hope you’re feeling better furry soon.

  18. I think you look adorable in the hat, even though you weren’t happy.

  19. Sending sweet Zoey purrayers and Power of the Paw ! Feel better soon sweetie !

  20. Zoey, mum is not brave enough to try putting clothes on me 😉 Whew!!!
    I am sending BIG purrs to you and hope they will make you feel better.
    POTP too!!
    Purrs, Julie

  21. Haha Zoey, your face expression says a lot about how you feel about costume 🙂

    Sending purrs your way. I hope you get better soon.

  22. I don’t think Bear and Ellie would be amused with costumes. You are gorgeous as always though, Zoey. We truly hope Zoey hangs in there and starts feeling better. We’ll be thinking of you all and praying – plus sending all our love.

  23. We have some funny masks but NO WAY, JOSE, am I putting on one of those. Mama sets them beside me and tried to make the photo look as if I was (dumb enough to be) wearing one.

  24. Oh dear, we’ll surely keep sweet Zoey in our thoughts and will send tons and tons of purrs and purrayers your way.

  25. I can’t imagine any of our boys letting me put a Halloween costume on them, especially Floki. I have a simple collar for him that I need to put on him before our trip and I am stressing about how I am going to do it.

  26. We’re sending purrs to Zoey.

    Mom puts costumes on us…we’re never happy.
    Happy Halloween!

  34. I don’t blame you for not wanting to look at the camera. I wouldn’t either if my human made me wear a pumpkin hat. Thankfully, my costume this year didn’t include a hat, but some of them in previous years have. Winks.

  35. My cat would have no part of the Halloween costume either. He looked at me as if I were crazy. He did, however, welcome the tidbits of treats he received from the candy bowl. 🙂
