Playing dress up huh?
This isn't Tripod's buddy because Tripod has no animal friends. In fact, he really, really, really dislikes all other animals and usually tries to attack them, especially dogs. He's not too fond of other cats either. Or rabbits. Or mice. Or squirrels. I saw him sizing up a horse and looking a little perplexed the other day, no doubt wondering what the best angle of attack would be.
No, this cat is a study for another piece that may turn into a Christmas card or something seasonal. The cat has been dressed up and has that look that says 'Take this off me now or something unusual will happen to your shoes while you are sleeping tonight.' You know the look if you have a cat. Dogs tolerate humanizing much more than cats do. Dogs usually associate dressing up with going out or food or fun.
Cats take it all very personally and plot your downfall while you think they are just lounging.
