Minou the Ragdoll kitty is Minou my friend’s namesake. Yes, it’s confusing when someone names herself after her pet.
Anyway, today’s post is about Minou the kitty.
She recently scratched herself bloody at her neck and had to wear a cone to prevent herself from continuously scratching at the wound.
She really hated it and would bite through it whenever no one was looking. I’m not quite sure how she did it but according to Minou (the person), she managed to destroy, like, two cones.
So they bought her booties, instead.
Pet booties come in fours, obviously, but pictured here are only three because Minou managed to shake one off and hide it so that no one could find it.
(She was only made to wear one, on the paw that wouldn’t stop scratching the wound.)
The booties are so cute, so here are more pictures of them!
Minou grumbles while Minou puts a bootie on her:
Minou is resigned to her fate:
She hates the booties and would sulk and mew pitifully and walk funny when she’s wearing one.
She keeps trying to shake it off!
She’d walk awkwardly for a minute and then sit down to sulk, propping the bootied paw awkwardly against the floor.
(Behind her are cartons for her clawing pleasure.)
She tries a few things. Besides sitting and sulking, she also tries gazing at you pitifully to tell you that she doesn’t like wearing a bootie.
But we only smile at her indulgently and tell her how cute she looks.
So she walks off to sulk some more.
We leave her alone and go play our game.
An hour later, we check on her and her bootie is gone! Again!
That’s the second lost bootie. She only has two left, last I was there.
I think she’s mighty pleased with herself!

Her nose is half white color
haha. Remind me of my mickey’s behaviour when we make him wear shoes.
so cute !! can ask your friend what breed is that?
I had a cat that had to wear the collar for a couple of weeks. Having to deal with booties too must be C R A Z Y.
binary11: she’s a Ragdoll :)
@Dorai – Wow, I’ve known Minou for years and I’ve never really noticed that until you mentioned it. :P
@tiger4 – Hehe…! I don’t know any pets who actually likes those shoes :P
@binary11 – It’s mentioned in the first line leh. :P
@Realliveman – Well, it’s either collar or booties!
@Sheylara: That “sian-half” look is priceless!
Put tracker in the booties:)…or try putting both boots and cone:)
Tickling Slow Loris: take a look at this clip
How is Minou these days? (The pet, not her mother, although I hope she is well too.) All healed up?
@Jimmy: Yup, she’s fine now. Thanks for the concern!
she looks like a Birman
