Batman, The Bumble Bee Version

When we rescued our Batty Boy from the shelter in Colorado 4 years ago, we were not sure exactly what to expect. We hoped he was kid-friendly. We didn't realize he was the Most. Patient. Cat. Ever.

Exhibit A.

Exhibit B.

Enter Halloween 2010. And, the costume.

He was resistant at first.

But, I managed to convince him of its beauty.

Find a happy place, Batman.


The kids were excited. Can you tell?

"We did it!"

Those flat ears are not a good sign. Sweet Batman tried hard to be patient.

And, then we let him loose.

Panic and laughter ensued.

Help me.

He was only in it for 10 minutes, but I think that was enough. We'll try it again this evening and if I can find his leash (you read that right), we'll go on a practice walk.

Wish us Batman luck!

So who won the prize for the comment about Lainey talking on the phone? And what was the prize? Was this a joke? I was afraid I missed it so I went back to read. Didn't realize that I've missed a couple posts that you added IN ONE DAY!! Holy cow you've been busy! Now I know why you never mentioned it again. Sorry.

I'm soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo excited about Blake's new job! God is pretty darn cool how He works things out!!

Batman, you're a good cat.
