Cats look perfect without any clothing. Dressing a cat is just about as sensible as throwing a blanket over a statue. If you really want a cat to be in a tuxedo, may I suggest a "tuxedo cat". I have a tuxedo Manx who is always purrfectly groomed. The main difficulties with dressing a cat is that cats have a strong aversion to being put in things by ...

You will first need to condition the cat to like the clothing. Your goal is to get the cat to associate the clothing with good things. This can include food and petting. You can use wet cat food on a spoon to reward the cat for sniffing and generally being near the clothing. Once the cat is comfortable with that, you can drape the clothing over the cat while ...

Cats generally have sense enough not to go outside/stay outside when it's dangerously cold unless they must. So unless you are forcing the cat outside, or your house is colder than most and you have a furless breed or much colder than most, this shouldn't be a problem. Basically, most cats never need to wear clothes other than their fur. Remember, feral ...

For the most part, no, it's not a good idea to put clothes on your pet for several reasons. There are a couple of good reasons and I will cover those. Clothes aren't good for your pet for several reasons. One reason is that they will chafe your pet. Where a human can scratch an itch under their clothes or adjust them, a dog can't. Imagine if you're ...

I would suggest that the best way to get your cat to wear a tuxedo is to practice cat hypnosis. Fortunately, hypnotizing a cat is much easier than hypnotizing people. It only requires three easy steps. 1. Establish a connection with your cat. The first step to hypnotize a cat is to to become its friend. Feed it, play with it, stroke its fur and talk to ...

Purchase the appropriate quality tux and ask him nicely to dress for dinner. Nothing helps get a request met like politeness. As for the hat, I would go with something like this. I would stay away from the monocle, while some cats wear them, unless he already has a prescription eye piece. Using someone else's prescription could be problematic.

Cats probably don't need a jacket or boots, since they probably don't want to stay outside in the cold for long. But if it's cold enough where you would want to wear a hat & gloves outside (definitely below freezing) and if your cat wants to go outside, then your cat would be a lot warmer & more comfortable wearing a jacket or sweater. A small dog ...

Clearly the cat is waiting for you to be in a sensible state of attire yourself. Put on a dress. One with a nice neck line. Not too plunging, but enough to hint an the bounty below. Make sure you have a strapless push-up bra that is not visible. This will present your sweater cows more attractive. Wear very sparkly earrings and a butterfly broach. This will ...

Photograph the cat. Create a cardboard cutout out of the photo. Dress the cutout in the tuxedo.

It would be completely up to the temperament of your cat whether or not they would accept wearing clothes. In my experience, most cats dislike the sensation of wearing things, but I’ve seen a few “popular” cats on Instagram that regularly wear coats. If I were going to train my cat, I’d treat it like the harness training I did (be prepared, this may take ...

I don't think clothing is bad on itself, it's more the intent behind the clothing. Right now it's pretty cold in my house, and my 15 lb (6.8 kg) Yorkshire Terrier mix has a sweater on, because he has pretty short hair. I enjoy dressing him, he's adorable, but I am clear that he's a dog, not a baby nor a child, but a dog. he needs walks, he needs to ...

I tried a coat made from a knitted legwarmer with holes for the front paws on my cat today, because she wanted to go out in the cold. After an hour I searched for her and she was sitting with the "coat" torn and hanging from branches. I will never use a coat again: too dangerous.
