Would anyone of you allow your cat to wear clothes?

Hi,
I was wondering how many of you would dress up your cat in clothes, less common than dressing up doggies i know, but do any of you do that?

I don't.

My cats sometimes wear collars,but not even those all the time.
I see even less of a point to dressing up cats then dogs! Thats just my opinion though.

my cats would plot a way to kill me if i dressed them up. I used to put a santa hat on one cat though at xmas time. You could push his ears together and shove them in the hat then he would flatten his ears mad and it would hold it on and you could take a mad cat xmas picture.

I do not see the point in dressing animals up just because you want to dress them up...
I know you can get hair for cats. That's just plain weird.
But what the hey. If the cat don't mind, then go crazy if you are into that sort of thing...
I would only use cloths for animals, if they needed it

Oby has a leather jacket, a leather spiked collar, a "jingle" collar for Christmas, and a gold lame & purple one for Mardi Gras, and a Skeleton Costume for Halloween! Lillian has a Cat Fairy Bandana, Kai doesn't like to wear clothes, we can't even get her to wear a collar...Thank Goodness for Microchips!

Hi canadian critter and anyone who doesn't object to/likes dressing up their cats in clothes, would you please go to www.dogsancatsinclothes.com and post a couple of your kitty dressed up pictures in the cats in clothes section.
www.dogsandcatsinclothes.com is a fun community to share review pictures of cats in clothes and dogs in clothes that i just started.

So you think dressing up hairless animals or animals that cannot keep body heat is cruel.

I had hairless rats and they didn't need clothes.They just needed extra fleece bedding.I am not against animals who need clothing for cold weather,for example the greyhounds...but otherwise I don't see a point.That is my opinion though.

The animals we domesticated are acting more and more human everyday as we keep integrating them into our culture and society and further away from their natural instincts. I appreciate its your own opinion but I dont think you can generalize all animals to say they "dont want to be dressed up". There is a fine line, In My Opinion, between dressing it up to be cutesy (People like Paris Hilton who had a dog as an accessory) and people who genuinely care for the well-being of their pets with coats to keep them warm in winter, life jackets and just-for-fun t-shirts and stuff.
If it dont hurt the animal and their other needs are bieng maintained then there's no cruelty involved.



On a different note, we used to put underwear on our old dog Nikki bc she always made a mess on the couches. Coco has a coat for the winter bc he's old and sensitive, I bought a pink teddy bear sweater for my bunnies but havent yet dared the attempt and Illusion adapts to everything I do to him!!!

I don't.
My cats HATE clothes! We did put antlers on Oscar for Christmas, but we couldn't even get a decent picture because he was too busy trying to get it off!

I also cannot stand the practice of putting human clothes on animals. A coat or sweater for a breed who would freeze without it in winter or bad weather is different, that has a useful purpose.

Dressing an animal up in clothes for human entertainment is cruel, and dangerous, in my opinion. I don't think it's cute, I think it's mean and undignified and hostile. I hate it.

Yeah,me neither.

I have seen cute little coats and things for dogs who need coats in cold weather,but otherwise I think it is pointless.I also seen cute dog pajamas,but these are only "cutesy" for humans and therefore I do not agree with making your pets wear them.

Cats though...a whole other story! They do not need coats or anything to wear at all in my opinion.Putting clothes on a cat or other animal is for human's enjoyment,not the pets.And basically clothing them is "humanizing" them...I think that is the right word.

(it is 7:25am,I have been awake since 4am...so I am tired and not thinking clearly,so I apologize if I do not make sense).
