Every child in the extended family has been here today.
They have been filming a film called “Chaos at the Bumpy Ritz Hotel”. And while Felix has been in charge of the scenery and props, Maddie organised costumes and make up.
When the children had disappeared down to the sitting room to film, there on the floor was a creamy gauze skirt: the sort that might stand up on its own in the right circumstances.
And while the kids were away, the cat will play.
He is a thoroughly masculine cat perfect for potential espionage. But he is also, I now discover, a sucker for a girly skirt.
Observe: and draw your own conclusions.

Clive is a cross-dresser. Who knew 🙂
He is. What a bombshell.
Every spy needs a Mata Hari disguise. Clive is on his way to a stellar career.
I hope “Chaos at the Bumpy Ritz Hotel” will one day appear at a theatre near me. Or at least on YouTube.
I shall ask the director what her plans are, Kathy 🙂
Is Clive channeling his inner fashion designer? Bond, Clive Bond, international spy and fashionista.
A winning combination, Gale!
Cats are into everything, Kate. Clive is a master of disguise in the making.
Indeed, Tom. A frilly skirt has fooled many a master of international espionage.
Tulle is a wonderful play thing for a cat with a kittenish bent . . . and what a great name for the movie:
“Chaos at the Bumpy Ritz Hotel”
Does it feature Bumpy the Elephant, perchance?
It certainly does, Nancy. He had a starring role. I heard Felix pottering round trying to find dark glasses for him at one point.
For a second I thought you decided to dress up Mr. Bond and I could say to my self, “This won’t end well.” 😀
😀 I promise faithfully never to dress Bond against his will in anything more than a simple DJ and bow tie, Ralfast…
Clive Bond is preparing a musical for your enjoyment entitled “I’m so Pretty”.
And witty. And gay! 😉
He has a nice singing voice, too…..an asset to the West End…
Ah, the reason for the research is obvious. His namesake is well known for skill in removing ladies’ garments, so he is just getting the hang of the mechanics of that one.
Dress-up kitten is one thing. Kitten up dress is another. Particularly tempting when the legs beneath it have nice stockings to aid with the ascent.
Ah, he was fiddling with zippers al the time, Col, is that it? He’s going to be a smooth operator…
Can’t help but be, starting early like that. And as long as he keeps his fur free of knots.
Ooh, colonialist has the Clive Bond persona pegged! On another note- he is growing so fast!
He is. He is a catton now, not a kitten.
Love his feminine side coming out there!
It is a softer side altogether, isn’t it, Tammy 😀
Always nice to observe Clive’s behavior. A truly interesting cat!
Thank you ;-D He keeps us on our toes…
Too tempting for a kitten 🙂
It was like a red bag to a bull, Tandy!
Living up to his namesake, Clever Clive can smell the Dinner Special served at the Bumpy Ritz Hotel: Tuna Salad Sandwich served wrapped in a creamy gauze skirt. It’s somewhere in that heap of material.
Ha! You are probably right, Amy 😀
Dear Kate, Clive is, like all cats, mysterious and mystical. Who knows what pictures his mind explores while he lies on gauze? Perhaps in a past life he was one of the ballerinas painted by Toulouse-Lautrec. Peace.
Clive might be in search of the fetching feline who wears this skirt.
