Simba is afraid of me!!!

Over the weekend, Prince E bought me tiger ears and a tiger tail to wear while I am running in this weekend's Pumpkins in the Park 5k. It is the first ever race I ran, but last time I didn't have a costume (I was too nervous to plan a costume!!)

Tonight I decided to try them on to see how they looked and whether I could be comfortable running in them. After seeing that it looked pretty cute in the bedroom mirror, I jogged out into the living room. I looked over at Simba and he was in that position cats get when they are scared: back all hunched up, head down. At first I didn't realize what was up with him and then I realized it was my costume!! Keep in mind, I wasn't wearing a mask or making any sudden moves towards him; I was just wearing ears and a tail. I immediately took them off, but it was a few moments before he came over. He smelled me and when he realized it was just me, he relaxed. Guess I will be putting the costume on during the ride to the race site!

I decided to take a photo of the offensive costume to show you. As I was setting up the shot, Simba came over to inspect the costume. He didn't seem so scared this time. I didn't even plan to have him in the picture, but apparently he wanted to be!!

  • You know that fur looks very real. Its amazing the cues animals use for communication. Too funny!

  • Thanks for visiting my site, sorry it took me a while to get back to your's. I think the costume is very cute, try putting it on very slowly in front of the cat and maybe he won't be afraid then.
    About the Scientology thing-I don't get it. Freaks!. Oops did I say that out loud?!
