my cat has a facebook

okay sooo I had a little bit too much fun with all the new Halloween themed fonts & fun on picmonkey......

I love Halloween time! I'm a big holiday person in general so any type of holiday that comes up, I most likely celebrate in some way....plus its my GF birthday month so even more reason to celebrate! 

But there's another special reason why I love & look forward to Halloween so much.......

& it involves a cat. 

you may have heard me mention her before around here...& whenever I speak of her I always compare her to an actual person & today you'll get to find out why.

Meet Dolce - my sassy, human like, queen cat.

just your average house pet.....right? 


Dolce is far from average. 

In fact she's actually a star. 

Now I'm sure you're all shaking your head & thinking ok crazy cat lady whatever you say - but before you sum this post up as just another girl talking about her cat let me tell you why Dolce is so special....

Every Halloween for the past 6 years I have dressed Dolce up in costumes & entered her in pet contests. 

I'm sure you're wondering what I mean by costumes.......because she is a cat. 

Well, when I went to buy Dolce's first costume I had to get her a dog costume because obviously they don't make cat ones. I never had put any type of clothes on Dolce before so I was taking a risk hoping this would work out. 

To my surprise Dolce not only let me put the costume on her without fussing & moving, but she kept it on for as long as I wanted without trying to take it off or anything. 

She literally would sit in her costume & just pose.  

She wouldn't even make a move when we were at the contests with tons of dogs running around. Everyone would ask to take her picture & she would let them. 

With all the fuss that was going on around her, Dolce was as cool as a cucumber.  

I knew I had something special here.

Do I consider myself a stage mom? 


& proud of it. 

Soooo the very first costume Dolce ever got was a princess - we won 1st place in this costume! 

Dolce standing proud next to her prize! We were very excited for this win since it was our first! 

The next year Dolce as a bumblebee, however we did not take home any awards for this costume. We didn't even place.....but in Dolce's defense the dog that won was wearing a matching outfit as her owner so they had that advantage....'oh look you match your dog how cute'....blah blah

After the loss we didn't let it get us down. We just knew we had to blow them out of the water with next years costume....& boy did we.

With this costume not only did Dolce enter the usual pet store contest but I also entered her in the Orange County Register online animal costume contest....

Put your hands up because Dolce the cop is here! 

& I'm happy to report we not only won 1st place in the pet store contest but we also won the OC Register contest!!! And her prize for winning the register contest was a professional photo shoot in her winning costume....& look how fabulous they turned out! Dolce means business!

we took home 1st again the next year when Dolce was a witch -

and then last year we took home 2nd when Dolce was a cowgirl - & the back story on this costume is the plaid shirt is actually a baby boys shirt I got at Target. 

Besides these fun costume contests........

Dolce was also in an infomercial for a new type of cat litter box. She didn't make the final cut of the infomercial but she did get paid $25 for her work & to me that's a win win! 

She was also invited to a casting call at Hollywood Paws in LA. The casting call was for pet agents. Did you know all the animals you see in movies & TV actually have agents? 

The agents loved Dolce, of course, but like a lot of places in LA they wanted Dolce to do training & the training wasn't cheap. so we passed on that. 

Dolce also went to an audition in LA for a cat food commercial. The studio that it was held at was where a lot of magazine have their cover shoots. They had a binder in the warehouse that held every picture of all the celebs that had been there before. It was pretty cool to see Dolce & I were in the same place where celebs like Jen Antison & Cameron Diaz had been. 

But it's Hollywood & Dolce did not make the commercial....but that's show business ---> however like everything else the experience was still really cool. 

So as you can imagine i am super excited for the contest this year...& I'm even more excited for her costume....but you're all gonna have to wait to see that one.

I brought Dolce this hat back from my trip to Mexico in 2008

However if you want to keep up with Dolce & her glamours life you can do so on her facebook page - 
https://www.facebook.com/dolcedolcedolce or you can follow her on twitter at @IamDolce

yes, my cat has a facebook & twitter
yes, she is active on them
& yes, she actually has over 100 facebook friends & over 200 twitter friends

so what do you think? crazy cat lady? or very cool cat ?.......& just so you know I am perfectly fine with the phrase crazy cat lady, as I'm sure all my cat lovers are :)

Dolce even has her own graduation cap & gown...of course we graduated together too. 

so be her friend now before she gets too famous & forgets us all....

Hollywood has already gone to her head, god help me.

Stephanie said...

Dolce is amazing. Hawkeye is happy to be one of her twitter followers! She's not nearly as skilled at wearing costumes though. That princess one is hilarious!

Jenna said...

Hahaha! Oh. My. Wordddddd. I love this post! My cat Charlie would be bffs with Dolce. He, too, thinks he's a human. I wish Charlie would let me dress him up! I tried to put a little cape on him once and he was furious! He ripped that thing off in seconds. He's got a bit of an attitude ;)

Brooke said...

Oh my gosh, that is great! I never think of dressing up my kitty cat for the holidays! But why not! Too cute!

Unknown said...

i love your cat. that princess costume is my favorite:)

cynthia said...

hahaha, love all of them! I actually just made a note to myself to write a post about our dogs' costumes that we bought this year. Every time I think about them I giggle. We haven't actually tried putting them on (our 2 Labs) yet but as long as I can get a few pics in them, I'll be good. Happy October! (My bday month, too!)

Unknown said...

Oh my gosh, I laghed out loud multiple times. This is the best! I dressed my old cat up once as a clown and he was not amused. He didn't talk to me for days. And forget taking him anywhere. He would serenade you with death cries the whole car trip. Dolce seems like one cool cat!

Jeneric Generation said...

This is HYSTERICAL. Your cat's face in those costumes...like it is totally normal to be wearing a costume. I love animals dressed up. Sue me. :) And I love the blog, I am following you back!

Jade Sierra said...

Oh. Dear. You knoowwww I love this post because {like you} I, too, am a crazy cat lady! This post makes me so proud! :) I shall tweet about it now. :)

omg this is awesome!

Janna Renee said...

Haha you sound like a crazy cat lady, but I know that Dolce is just awesome! You are such a "stage mom". If you have kids, you better not go on Toddlers and Tiaras!! Luckily, I know you are better than that....I know that if and when you have kids they would skip the reality tv and make it in the movies. Hehe.

Elizabeth said...

hahaha! your cat is WAY cool! love all the outfits!

No(dot dot)el said...

SO stinking cute!!

Renee Arianna said...
