Snickers (left) is up to no good (as usual) as Cinnamon looks on with complete and utter detachment and indifference.

I wouldn't blame her, seeing as how her reign as Queen of Mischief has now come under threat from newcomer Lucy! She's been trying to up her game, thinking up new ways to cause mayhem around the house to show Lucy who's boss.

Apparently it is designed so the cats are less stealthy hunters.

Some people also put bells on their collars.

I think the link also said the outer hem is reflective, so cars have a better chance to see them in the dark. My cats are indoor cats and don't wear collars, but I think it's kind of ingenious.

Ingenious... if you want to dress your cat like a clown.

My cats are indoor/outdoor cats.

Latte is now just over 2 years old. She ran away for a bit when I brought home the last kitten, Iddybiddy, and she can be quite self sufficient. A week away and hardly lost an ounce. Over 90% of what they catch are various pest rodents including mice, gophers, moles, and shrews. The kittens have also caught a tiny garter snake and an earthworm. And, are also avid fly and moth hunters.

I try to convince them to avoid the bees, but I think Idddybiddy did manage to get stung near her eye once. Perhaps dressing them like flowers may not be good. Hummingbirds?

Birds are rarely on the menu.

The cats are car savvy, and I'm isolated from the road enough that I don't believe they are at great risk.

Yeah, those uniforms are terrible. He is a Broncos fan so often roots for the underdog.
