It’s Monopoly time at our local Safeway. This year, for the first time ever, we won something.
Presenting Canelo’s brand new, free-except-for-shipping, pet bandana from Shutterfly.
Canelo wouldn’t let me put it on him for the photo shoot. The best I could do was wait for him to fall asleep and then drape it over him like a blanket.
When he woke up, Canelo pulled off the bandana and gave me the standard tail flick reproach.
Fast forward a few hours… My daughter got home from school, and the first thing she did was tie Canelo’s bandana properly around his neck. Honestly, I thought there would be more fireworks.
Admittedly those ears were marginal at best, but nobody in my house was bleeding, and that was… unexpected.
I could not figure out what was going on with this cat. It’s not like Canelo to be this calm about our Stuff-on-Cats habit. I’ll admit it, I was a little disappointed to see Canelo saunter over to his food bowl without the slightest wobble in his step or puff in his tail.
After his snack, Canelo settled on the couch for a little nap. So of course, my daughter tried to pet him.
Judging by what happened next, Mr. Chompy McFuzzyPaws here thinks his bandana is an anti-cuddle shield.
Bonus: The Twelve-Year-Old insisted that we get a pet bandana for Tigery too.
