When my mother was a child she used to dress up her cats in doll clothes. The cats were called O and M. She told me about this when I was a child. I was astonished; I couldn’t believe any cat would be so docile as to let herself to be dressed up.
Then my mother became an adult. The cats died but she got five daughters whom she could dress up for a few decades. First in baby clothes and then in children’s clothes.
Now I have become an adult. I have neither daughters nor sons. However, two years ago I took a cat as a pet. I named her H. Recently I dressed her up in doll clothes. It was not at all difficult.
