Today is a really special holiday. At least I think it’s a special holiday.
It’s National Dress Up Your Pet Day.
I got all excited until I realized – I don’t have any pets.
So I did the next best thing.
I decided that Scratchy would be my pet for the day.
That way I could dress him up any way I wanted.
But then I had another problem.
My people are way bigger than Scratchy.
How am I ever going to find something to dress him in?
Then I had an idea.
My younger person doesn’t clean out his closet very often.
So I snuck in there – don’t you dare tell him – I would get in real trouble – I’m not supposed to even be in his room. I don’t know why he has a problem with my hair.
He has hair.
So anyway, I went through his closet and I found it.
A very small shirt that he had decorated when he was little.
And I put it on Scratchy.
Scratchy started to step right out of that shirt.
And the decorations didn’t even show.
So I decorated him with a bow.
And then you know what Scratchy did?
I’m telling too.
Because he went right into my younger person’s closet.
And then he dressed me up as a Cub Scout.
I couldn’t stop him. He threatened me with his claws.
