Carroll Britton is a makeup artist in Edina, Minnesota. This is her cat, Lilly.
Refusing to be labeled as a mere crazy cat lady who likes to dress up her cat, Britton claims it’s for Lilly’s own good.
“It’s protective body armor, to keep the dogs from biting her. It’s been a long winter and when you don’t go on vacation you have to find ways to amuse yourself,” she said. “She loves being dressed up.”
But tragedy struck recently when Lilly returned home from a neighborhood wander without one of her favorite sweaters. “Dogs don’t have that much dexterity! Some human did this. Who took the damn outfit off my cat? I don’t take clothes off their kids,” said Britton.
Right. Because that would be exactly the same thing.
