Cheryl Ball's design of a cute cat costume is great and easy to make for cat-lovers everywhere! I like to wear mine as I sit around the house and talk to my 34 cats. I wonder why my husband left me? I only wear this outfit when running errands and socializing, its not like i wear it to work or anything! at least I probably wouldnt, like if i had a job, snuggles! stop doing that to Mrs Fluffyballs right this minute! dont make me put you in the dryer!!!
